Given the endless stream of celebrity sleaze coming out of Hollywood in the past couple of weeks, you'd be forgiven for thinking that each and every celebrity out there is actual scum.
Thankfully, that's not the case - as evidenced by a Twitter thread that kicked off last night by a user known as Bakoan. The stories ranged from silly and fun, to downright charming and heartwarming.
Some were simple...

While others were a little bit of a surprise, to say the least.

John Lithgow is also wonderful, and has a side career as a children’s entertainer/picture book writer/singer that he never really promotes

Either way, it's always heartening to see people being nice for no reason other than they're just nice.
