26 Surprising Celebrity Godparents

They even know each other?!

Posted on

16. Jake Gyllenhaal is godfather to Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams' daughter Matilda.

OK, so this one's not quite as surprising seem as Heath and Jake were best mates before his death. Busy Philipps is also godmother to Matilda.

21. Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman are both godparents to media mogul Rupert Murdoch's two daughters.

While former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is also said to be godfather to one of Murdoch's daughters.

22. Henry Winkler is Twilight star Bryce Dallas Howard's godfather.

But that's perhaps less surprising when you realise her father is Ron Howard - Henry's former Happy Days co-star.
