Ryan Reynolds Shades Narcissistic Celebrities While Getting Serious About Coronavirus

Ryan Reynolds Shades Narcissistic Celebrities While Getting Serious About Coronavirus

"We need to work to flatten the curve and fight off COVID-19", said the 43-year-old actor in a video posted to Twitter on Monday, before making a joke about who the real heroes are during these times.

Being the usual joker and in order to leave no doubt that he was the one who was writing, the actor again implied with Hugh Jackman pretending to be sharing your phone.

In his video, Reynolds also urged people to "stay at home, practice social distancing, wash your hands, we are going to get through this thing together".

"In times of crisis I think we all know that it's the celebrities that we count on most", deadpanned Reynolds.

"If you can't stay home, then it means you are one of the wonderful first responders, one of the medical professionals, one of the grocery store workers, drugstore workers, or food delivery people, and I thank you for that fantastic work you're doing", Page said to his viewers on Twitter.

Walker described the fact that Valve has no one outside the company to respond to as a "cheat card". As you can see, Valve is also encouraging social distancing in this tough period for all of us.


In the one-minute video the prime minister looks exhausted and a bit disheveled as he speaks to the nation from his kitchen in his second week of self-isolation with his family after his wife Sophie was diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus. It's more helpful than gathering a bunch of other celebrities to sing Imagine, I guess.

"But the rest of us, please stay home". We are gonna get through this thing.

Another important message from an important celebrity.

Reynolds then asked Barenaked Ladies' Steven Page, Rogan and RCMP constable Terry Reynolds to also spread the word. Of course, Ryan Reynolds had to put up his own message, and he does so in spectacular fashion. In a post shared on Reynolds' Twitter and Instagram last week, the Deadpool star announced that he and his wife will be donating $1 million to two organizations representing food banks across the United States and Canada. @MichaelBuble and @VancityReynolds- can you help? Call someone who is isolated and who may need a connection, "he continued".

"Until May 1st, for every bottle of Aviation ordered online, we'll donate 30% of proceeds as a tip to your bartenders - who REALLY miss you btw".
