It’s been said before, but we’ll say it again.
Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds is a superhero in the movies and in real life.
If he’s not helping a girl deal with her prom photos after a breakup or granting a boy with Hodgkins Disease his wish to meet the Deadpool actor, he’s FaceTiming a 5-year-old boy with terminally-ill cancer.
According to express.co.uk, Reynolds made Daniel Downing’s dream come true when he arranged a FaceTime chat with him from the set of Deadpool 2, which is expected to hit theaters in June of next year.
Daniel, who was wearing Deadpool’s face on his top, was so surprised to hear from the actor. Besides discussing his illness, Daniel was introduced to the Deadpool characters. His mother was so grateful and beyond elated that Reynolds took time out of his busy Hollywood life to talk to Daniel.
It’s amazing how a small act of kindness like that can change a person’s life.
Although his Deadpool character may not be kid-friendly, he does what he can to bring joy to those who request it, especially from the youngins.
And now we love Ryan Reynolds even more! We’ll be first in line for the premiere of Deadpool 2!
