VIDEO: Ryan Reynolds delivers opening remarks at British Columbia high school – BC News


The Kitsilano class of 2020 will never forget its last days of high school – and not just because of the global health crisis.

The beloved Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds gave an opening speech to graduates of Vancouver High School in a social media video Friday, May 1, which included the promise of pizza for all students.

Entitled “Kitsilano Class of 2020”, the video begins with the dead Pool star sitting in a cozy room, talking about the promotion of his old school. He makes a joke about a former classmate, then talks about the school he attended before going to Kitsilano, where he says he was expelled in the “Canadian way”.

“But I can pass on this little wisdom chestnut,” Reynolds notes. “One thing that has worked for me is to practice some form of compassion every day. “

The Vancouver-born actor points out that empathy is “the most radical act of ambition you can ever demonstrate,” which made him happy and helped him succeed in all of his endeavors.

At the end of the video, Reynolds writes that he misses Nat’s Pizzeria in Vancouver and that each graduate will receive a large pizza on him.

He also jokes: “You don’t have to go to college – God knows I didn’t. “

As of 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, the video had already been viewed more than 516,000 times on YouTube.
