Ryan Gosling took time out of his busy filming schedule to surprise some kids at the Texas School for the Deaf in Austin, TX.
“We knew that Ryan was in town, and he’s been on streets around campus often so we were just pipe dreaming (and look what happened!),” Anne Adams, executive director of the school’s foundation, told the Washington Post.
The “Drive” star not only helped raise money for the event; he also brought supporters to help fire things up.
The heartthrob showed up to the organization’s Spooky Skedaddle 5K, an annual charity run, with co-stars Michael Fassbender and Rooney Mara in tow, according to Celebuzz.
“Ryan was extremely kind, allowing lots of photo ops with fans and when the director told him, ‘Enough,’ he said, ‘No, one more,’ and pulled a small deaf child out of the line for a picture,” Adams told E!. “Ryan is a wonderful person and we were delighted that they came!”
“Ryan helped us out by paying $50 for a $1 glow in the dark cotton candy from a booth staffed by deaf children,” says Adams. “It was very sweet.”
Gosling’s unnamed Malick film project is due to be in theaters in 2013.
