Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds gifted a large pizza to every student from his favourite local joint and also gave an inspiring speech to the class of 2020 of his alma mater, Kitsilano Secondary School in Canada, virtually amid lockdown.
Reynolds spoke of friends in and guided the graduates as they step into a new chapter in their lives, reports aceshowbiz.com.
He said: “If I can pass on this one little chestnut of wisdom, it’s something that you might want to start if you’re not already doing it. Totally up to you, no pressure but one thing that’s worked for me is practicing some form of compassion every day whether it’s for yourself or someone, especially for someone else, is good.”
Reynolds added: “You’ve heard the expression ‘divide and conquer,’ you see it everywhere and dividing people is just a means to distract them, disarm them, whereby giving one an opportunity to conquer, and the world seems to subsist on this idea more and more and more.”
He asked everyone to practice empathy.
“It’s just overdone and I think that you guys want to be stylish and ahead of the curve. And I believe that your generation will be. So maybe practice the opposite, practice empathy.”
Meanwhile on the work front, there is substantial speculation over how “Deadpool 3 ” will turn out, now that Disney have taken over the franchise,
Disney is not known to make R-Rated films, but “Deadpool” is very much an R-rated movie franchise.
Ryan Reynolds, who stars as the wacky superhero in the franchise, opened on the subject, according to small-screen.co.uk.
“Oh, man, I really don’t know,” Reynolds told Total Film (via GamesRadar) about “Deadpool 3”, according to the website. “It’s just all so new with it being over at Marvel now, and, you know, figuring out the ins and outs as much as I can, from where I sit. We’ll see,” he added.
