Who would have thought that a well-known Hollywood actor who has played a male nurse and a scowling model would end up in the capital of a war-torn country meeting with a former Ukrainian actor who is now President of that country? It sounds like it could have come straight off the pages of a movie script, but it didn’t. But unfortunately, this is real life in 2022.

As it turns out, the famous actor (Stiller, not Zelensky) is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations refugee agency. Stiller met with refugees, and multiple high-ranking government officials, including the Ukrainian President.

Upon meeting in Kyiv, Stiller said to Zelensky,

“It’s an honor for me. It’s really wonderful, you’re my hero.”
