High-grossing actor Ryan Reynolds extends the hands of help and warm words to students of his old Alma mater. He mainly targeted the seniors that would be graduating in a large ceremony but for the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Via YouTube, Reynolds announced that he's celebrating every student by donating one large box of pizza to each of them, and he even left loving words of encouragement. How sweet!
Reynolds is the average Hollywood heartthrob with his looks and achievements, but who knew he has a kind heart to boot! The star recently took to social media to give a graduation speech for students at his old alma mater, Kitsilano Secondary School.
If not for the infectious disease that has called for everyone to be self-quarantined in their homes, the students would be graduating with an elaborate ceremony surrounded by their loved ones.
This, however, didn't stop Reynolds from celebrating them in the little way he could despite not being able to address them in person. The "Adventureland" actor took to YouTube to post a video of himself giving a speech to the students.
Reynolds was comfortably attired in the video, and that added to the comforting tones of his speech. He started with words of advice admonishing the students to practice solidarity and most, importantly, "empathy," which he reiterated comes with benefits.
"Empathy has gotten me so much more, so much farther. To my surprise, [empathy] has made me money, friends, priceless memories. It's allowed me to fully accept and provide love. It's helped me recognize the mistakes I've made and learn from them. Above all, it made me happy. It's something I'll probably be working on my whole life."
It was just after this that the father of three made the surprise announcement that "every grad gets one large pizza on me."
Could he get any more perfect!?
