6. He recently surprised a group of underprivileged kids by showing up at an advanced screening of Guardians of the Galaxy. He stuck around to take selfies and imparted some words of wisdom to the lucky fans: "If you stick to your path, and you believe in yourself and you be courageous enough to be yourself you can grow up, you can be your own Star-Lord."
