Ryan Reynolds Receives Governor General’s Award

Actor Ryan Reynolds was awarded the Governor General’s Award from Governor General Mary Simon on Friday.

The 45-year-old actor from Vancouver is known for his roles in “Deadpool,” “Green Lantern,” and “The Proposal,” among many others.

Reynolds tweeted the news Saturday morning saying he’s heartbroken after the award. The tweet also included a five-minute long clip featuring a short musical performance by Canadian musician Steven Page.

The clip also highlighted organizations like the Daily Bread Food Bank and The Hospital for Sick Children, where Reynolds has donated in the past along with his wife, actress Blake Lively.

The last minute of the video shows teary-eyed Reynolds reacting to the messages, smiling throughout the clip.

“I guess I did it … it was crazy,” Reynolds said.

In June 2020, The Star reported on the many initiatives Reynolds and Lively donated to in Canada during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among the support was a $ 200,000 donation to St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia to help it establish an indigenous women’s leadership center.
