Talk about SUPER!

Though Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t exactly play a superhero in the Marvel movies, on Monday she proved she’s just as much of a hero as her costars by getting Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. to visit a young man who’s been diagnosed with leukemia!

A while back, the blonde beauty took notice of a young fan, Ryan Wilcox, who has leukemia and took to social media to tell his story and express his interest in meeting his actor heroes!

After reading the 18-year-old’s tale, Gwyneth was able to call up both Chris AND Robert and got them to visit Ryan in San Diego with her yesterday for a meet-and-greet and some pics!

Paltrow started off the journey by taking to Instagram and sharing a pic of Evans and RDJ on the tarmac saying:

Once the stars were up in the air, Miz Paltrow shared:

But the best picture of all came once the boys got to meet:

Ryan wasn’t going to let the Hollywood stars have all the fun though as he also took a few pics that have since been reposted:

And the best pic of all:

The three actors ended up spending the afternoon with Wilcox and his family and even signed a few autographs, including Downey signing the kid’s bedroom wall — even if he chose #TeamCap. LOLz!

Later, the Captain himself tweeted:


We’re so happy to see celebs use their star power for good and hope they continue to be heroes IRL!
