Who are the best and worst celebrity tippers?

Starting with two of the claimed most generous, actor Johnny Depp once left a $3,000 tip on a tab for a waiter and mogul Donald Trump was credited with a $10,000 tip, even though he didn't really leave it.

Starting with Depp, in 2008, a stunned a restaurant owner in Wisconsin reported his big tip.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star dined with nine pals at Flanagan's Wine Review eatery during a break from filming his new movie Public Enemies, according to a report, and Depp enjoyed the meal so much, he felt the need to reward the staff with the hefty tip - despite his dinner costing just $5,120.

Trump's big tip a hoax.

Donald Trump is not listed in the bad celebrity tipper category, but he did not leave a $10,000 tip for a California waiter as once reported.

It was reported that Trump left a $10,000 tip for waiter Billy D. on an $82.27 bill at the Buffalo Club, an eatery owned by "Miami Vice" producer Anthony Yerkovich in Santa Monica, California.

However, Trump said it was a hoax.

"This was done by the stupid restaurant to get publicity," Trump told the New York Post, adding, "It's not my signature."
