We’ve all heard stories of divas and drama queens, but what about those celebrities who have nothing but major love and respect for their fans? Bright Side shares stories of when celebrities have truly gone above and beyond to make their fans happy.

1. Chris Evans and Chris Pratt

This superhero duo made a Superbowl bet, dictating that the loser would pay a visit to a children’s hospital...in costume! Despite the fact that Chris Evans won the bet (Pratt made a visit to Christopher’s Haven in Boston), he still went along to Seattle Children’s Hospital to lend the kids some Captain America cheer.

2. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Everyone’s favorite WWE-wrestler-turned-actor melted hearts by inviting a terminally ill child to the set of Baywatch after receiving a handwritten letter from Tater, 7, detailing why he wanted to meet his idol.

3. Ed Sheeran

After a Twitter campaign including the hashtag #SongForTri, Ed’s management arranged a phone call with Triona Priestley, who had suffered from cystic fibrosis since childhood. Ed sang “Little Bird” down the phone to her as she took her last breaths, surrounded by her family.

4. Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth

Following in their fellow Marvel heroes’ footsteps, Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth paid a visit to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. They entertained around 80 children, came equipped with costumes and Thor’s hammer, and even got interviewed by one of the kids.

5. Mila Kunis

Military Veteran Sergeant Scott Moore posted a video online asking Mila Kunis to be his date to the Marine Corps Ball. Not only did she respond, she accepted and went along with him to this special occasion.

6. Ellen DeGeneres

The Ellen Show

Ellen received a letter from a woman who worked for a children’s hospital. She was struggling to make ends meet for her family. Ellen flew them all to LA and presented the woman with a check for $10,000.

7. Amy Schumer

After being served by a fan at a restaurant and chatting to him about the realities of being a college student working to pay for school, Schumer left a $500 tip. This was a 1,000% tip considering she’d only spent $49 on dinner!

8. Bruno Mars

When Bruno discovered that 11-year-old car crash survivor Zumyah Thorpe — who’d listen to his music while recovering from her injuries — was in the audience of one of his shows, he stopped the proceedings so he could sing “Just The Way You Are” especially for her.

9. Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. and Albert Manero, a #CollectiveProject student who founded Limbitless, surprised a very special child with a new bionic 3D printed arm at no cost to the family.
