There is a heart-touching story that happened in Canada. One girl’s teddy bear was stolen during her move to a new home in Vancouver. It was a present from her late mother. It has a voice gadget sewn inside with her mom’s last words recorded on it. The girl wrote about the loss on Twitter and suddenly Ryan Reynolds joined in the search.
We at Bright Side are once again surprised by this actor’s openness and kindness and are ready to tell you which celebrities are not hiding their hearts behind a steel fence. But first, let’s look at how the story with the teddy bear ended.
19. Ryan Reynolds
Thanks to Ryan Reynolds, the news about the loss got spread all around the internet and the toy was found several days after. 2 unknown people brought the long-awaited teddy bear right to Mara’s doorstep.

18. Dwayne Johnson
- My cousin took his son to a WWE event for his birthday and then fishing the next day along the river. While they were fishing, “The Rock” appeared out of nowhere, ready to go fishing with his cousin. The 4 of them spent the entire day together, and “The Rock” bought them lunch and hung out. It was an epic experience especially for my cousin’s son who’d just turned 12. © Earlmo / Reddit
17. Kim Kardashian
- Also, Kim couldn’t stand aside when a natural disaster happened and she and her family donated a lot of money to those who suffered from it.
16. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga did the same thing. As it turned out, she is a simple and kind person.
- I worked room service and the bar at a hotel she was staying at. She ordered room service and I brought it up. She was in casual clothes and was extremely nice and courteous, and she tipped well. It seemed like no more than 30 minutes later she was at the bar all Gaga’d out, talking with some of the regulars. Not a spectacular story, but it caught me by surprise. When I heard she was staying, I expected her to be a super diva-like some of the other ones we’ve had stay. © caboose88 / Reddit
15. Chris Pratt
- My girlfriend met Chris Pratt on a red-eye flight from LAX to Orlando. He waited around and took selfies with everyone waiting for their bags, while he waited for his. She tried to take the fastest picture ever because she was too embarrassed to bother him and he made sure the picture was good before she left. © Iucusvonlucus / Reddit
While shooting Jurassic Park, the actor visited a kids’ hospital in Baton Rouge. The hospital placed these photos on its Facebook page where Pratt was playing with kids, signing posters, and posing. “Our patients were all smiles and we are so thankful to Chris for lifting their spirits by visiting and handing out Jurassic World goodies,” says the message.
Adele once brought cakes to firefighters at a Chelsea fire station in London. “She just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she had some cakes for us. So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said: ’Hi, I’m Adele.’ She just wanted to have some tea, give them hugs, and thank all the firefighters for their courage during the catastrophe at Grenfell Tower. It was so nice.”
The day after the fire, Adele and her husband visited the site during a vigil, where they offered their support to the victims. The fire took the lives of 72 people and many others got injured.

- After a man posted on Facebook about his daughter Meghan’s dying wish to talk to the singer, Taylor called the 18-year-old girl right away and talked to her for a long time. Though the details of that conversation were kept secret, Meghan said that “the words ’Thank you’ will never be enough to say to Taylor Swift.”
- She has also made another terminally ill fan’s wishes come true. Swift made a special visit to a 13-year-old who had been fighting a rare type of cancer since the age of 7.
