Say what you want about the #3 top grossing movie of 2020, but its lead star has heart. And not just for his onscreen animal friends.
A six year old boy named Bridger put himself in front of a dog about to attack his sister. The bites to his face required 90 stitches.
In a video message, Downey Jr said: “Bridger, you’re a rockstar. I hear Captain America sent a shield your way. I’m going to do one better, you call me on your next birthday. I’ve got something special for you.”Robert Downey Jr and Tom Holland surprise for brave fan
Wish I could like this more than once. Maybe I can, by sharing with readers.
This is one benefit of 2020 social media: more easily putting movie stars in touch with fans. The article doesn’t say what happened to the dog, but it usually isn’t good in situations like this.
Tom Holland invited Bridger onto the Spider-man 3 set and Mark Ruffalo also responded. Whenever you hear how rich movie stars don’t do anything nice for others, drop them this link.
Two thumps up for you, Bridger. Protecting your sister is what it’s all about, young man!
