Yesterday, Reynolds shared a post on his Instagram account announcing that he and his wife would be donating $1 million to Feeding America and Food Banks Canada, two organizations working to assist those most at risk in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

He also asked his followers to prioritize themselves and their health during this trying period. “Take care of your bodies and hearts. Leave room for joy. Call someone who’s isolated and might need connection,” wrote Reynolds.

The actor managed to lighten the mood with his post, however, captioning his announcement with, “I think we can all agree, Covid-19 is an asshole. If you’re able to help, visit, @feedingamerica and @foodbankscanada.”

A notorious funnyman, Reynolds couldn’t sign off without one last joke, obviously, and took a jab at his notorious faux nemesis, fellow actor Hugh Jackman. “Hugh Jackman’s # is 1-555-Hugh,” he concluded.
