As if we needed more reasons to love Ryan Reynolds, right? Ryan Reynolds took to his Facebook page to honor the late Connor McGrath, who Reynolds met at Edmonton hospital when McGrath was still battling cancer. The two enjoyed an advanced screening of Deadpool together. McGrath has since passed away, and Reynolds honors him in a truly moving way. RIP Connor.
Garth Callaghan is 44 years old and has been diagnosed with cancer three times since November 2011. Prostate cancer once. Kidney cancer twice. Although he appears healthy today, statistics say he has an 8% chance of living past 5 years.
Since his daughter, Emma, has been in the second grade, he has written her a napkin note for each lunch he's packed. It may be a quote or a simple word of encouragement but it is a time when the two can connect.
Garth may die, but he will not let Emma eat lunch without a napkin note. His promise to her is to write one napkin note for every day of class Emma has until she graduates from high school.
Last year, Ben Affleck was in a little movie called Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a real film that makes absolutely no sense at any point ever. But out of misery comes joy in the form of a great meme: Sad Affleck.
Ben Affleck says that he’s learned a lot from working on a movie of that size and scope and with that kind of money and technology behind it. But more than anything, he learned not to stare off into the distance during interviews. Why? Because that’s how memes are born.
In this interview with BBC, Affleck responds to the “Sad Affleck” sensation:
“It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it. That’s one thing I learned.”
From Sad Affleck to Smart Affleck.
