There have always been a bunch of spooky similarities between Ryan Reynolds and his on-screen superpersona Deadpool, and he certainly didn't mince his words with his latest Deadpool-tastic Facebook post.

Reynolds met Deadpool fan Connor McGrath through Make-A-Wish Foundation before the kid lost his life to cancer, and Reynolds made this heartfelt post in honor of what would have been Connor's 14th birthday:

"My friend Connor McGrath would have been 14 years old tomorrow,” Reynolds posted to Facebook. β€œHe isn't here now, but he stuck around long enough to make everyone he knew fall over laughing. Right up to the very end he was as quick with a joke as he was with a hug.@makeawishamerica brought us together and nothing β€” not even a cowardly, fuckfaced thing called cancer can take that away. Sending his amazing parents, Kim and Gerald McGrath crisp high fives and bear-hugs of love. Anything you do to support your local Make-A-Wish Foundation is alright with me."
