Virtual meetings are so in right now. Ryan Reynolds surprised patients at SickKids Hospital in Toronto with a video chat this week. He talked about what movie was his favourite to film and even about his love for thin-crust pizza.

In the video posted by sickkidsvs on Instagram, the Vancouver born actor chatted with Fern who took phone calls from kids with questions for Reynolds. 

SickKids wrote in the caption, "Our friend Ryan Reynolds @vancityreynolds surprised SickKids patients this afternoon with a virtual visit! Ryan joined @sickkidstoronto’s daily call-in show, which is broadcast to all patient rooms across the hospital. Ryan chatted with patients about Pikachu, having three young daughters, his favourite food (thin-crust pizza) and his ugly Christmas sweater—which helped raise over $300K for SickKids in January. Thank you, Ryan, for an afternoon we will never forget!"

When asked what his favourite movie he ever did was, Reynolds responded, "I have a few of them if that's okay. I really love Detective Pikachu, partly because my kids love it. I have three daughters and two of them are old enough now to watch it and they love it so much."

He even showed the actual Pikachu that was used to model the creature in the movie.

As for being asked about his favourite food, the 43-year-old shared, "If I could just have a big large, thin-crust pizza, that's my favourite food. If I was stuck on a desert island and I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would be a big thin-crust pizza."

Reynolds then showed viewers the actual Deadpool mask that he wore in the movie, fitted with eye patches he could take off to get some air and see better.

The last call-in patient he spoke to shared that she got to wear his iconic ugly Christmas sweater during a donation drive over Christmas.

According to ET Canada, SickKids announced on New Year's Day that they raised $300,000 with help from Reynolds and his ugly Christmas sweater. 

ET Canada also writes that the actor has been working with SickKids Foundation since 2016.

Reynolds is among other generous Canadian celebs including Shawn Mendes who donated $175,000 to SickKids Hospital in Toronto last week.

Also last week, Reynolds and wife Blake Lively supported food banks in Canada and the US. They donated $1 million to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
