For the most part, celebs are in the news whenever they get themselves into trouble. After all, drama sells and some stars have proven themselves to be simply selfish or careless.

On the other hand, there are plenty of kind-hearted stars who have shown that helping people is a great way to express their humility and gratitude for everything they have received in their lives. They are the ones who dedicate not just money, but also their valuable personal time, for worthwhile causes. These actions, however, are so often overlooked in the news.

We’ve put together a list of ten of the most magnanimous celebrities. These Hollywood stars each have a heart of gold – see if your most loved or loathed star made the list!

Ryan Gosling

Above: Known for resolving disputes between strangers, donating time and money to charitable organisations and being the hottest man alive, Ryan Gosling also occasionally swoops in as a superhero. One fan recently encountered the hunk: “I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. I was crossing 6th Avenue in a new pink wig – not looking the right way because I am from London. Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi.”

Taylor Swift

More recently, Taylor decided to donate $50 000 for New York public schools.

Keanu Reeves

Keanu also gave $80 million from his $114 million earnings from the Matrix series to the special effects and costume crew of the film.

Christian Bale

In 2012, he granted the wish of a four-year-old boy, Jayden Barber, who was diagnosed with cancer. First, he flew out to Jayden’s hometown during Jayden Barber Day, where he spent the day with the child dressed up in his batman costume. Then, he took Jayden and his family to Disneyland. What a great guy!

T.I.

Above: Although T.I. has had a number of run-ins with the law, he is also credited with talking someone out of committing suicide on two different occasions.
