In a world of celebrities misbehaving, it's nice to report on A-listers who take some time out of their busy schedules to do some good. It's even better to whip up these stories when one of those famous faces is Canadian.
Over the weekend, reports the Daily Mail, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively swapped their haute couture for sweats, T-shirts and no makeup and surprised patients at a paediatric hospital in Sudbury, Ont. The pair are staying in the area while Reynolds shoots his latest film, Atom Egoyan's 'Queen of the Night.'
According to Health Sciences North Hospital spokesperson Dan Lessard, who spoke to local paper Northern Life, the actors were wonderful with the children. And, apparently, the A-list pair wanted to keep the visit out of the media spotlight.
Northern Life also spoke with one of the mom's the couple met with. Says Sarah Lavallee: "Ryan and Blake were both very kind to us. They introduced themselves right away and asked how my son was doing. He is only three months old, and wasn't really able to appreciate the visit like the older children, but it's something I can tell him about when he is older."
The pair look super cute getting to know the hospital patients, non?
Correction: In an earlier version of this story, we said Dan Lessard spoke with The Sun and a Facebook fan page. He, however, spoke with Northern Life.
