Is there anybody on the planet who doesn’t like Mark Ruffalo? Well, maybe Donald Trump and Boris Johnson, both of whom he’s rebuked. But I meant normal human beings, not political snake oil salesmen with an empathy deficiency.

Ruffalo is one of the good guys. He’s campaigned for a variety of worthy environmental and social causes, and was the first male Hollywood star to lend vocal support to the #MeToo movement when his peers were keeping their heads down and their mouths shut.

I’m even prepared to forgive him his involvement in that gag-inducing celebrity video mangling John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’.
