Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is helping a Vancouver woman recover a stolen teddy bear that contains an audio recording from her late mother saying, “I love you, I’m proud of you, I’ll always be with you.”
“Vancouver: $5,000 to anyone who returns this bear,” tweeted the kindhearted “Deadpool” star, 43, on Saturday in response to a CBC journalist’s noticeabout the missing memento. “Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home.”
I’m not crying, you’re crying.
Vancouver: $5,000 to anyone who returns this bear to Mara. Zero questions asked. I think we all need this bear to come home. https://t.co/L4teoxoY50— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) July 25, 2020
The bear belongs to Mara Soriano, 28, and it is believed to have been stolen over the weekend while she and her fiancé were moving apartments, reports CBC. The bag also contained a book of blank checks, Soriano’s citizenship card, her and her future husband’s passports and social insurance cards along with an iPad and a Nintendo Switch.
But it’s the bear that means the most to her, as it contains a voice message from her mother, who had passed away from cancer a year ago.
The voice recording says, “I love you, I’m proud of you, I’ll always be with you,” according to Soriano, who told CBC she is “devastated” by the loss of the cuddly keepsake. The Vancouver Police posted a Tweet on Saturday urging the public to return it.
“I just really want to find my bear,” she says. “That’s all that I care about.”
Ryan’s tweet was retweeted by Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy and Scrub‘s star Zach Braff...
