Kristen Bell called a little girl with brain cancer as Anna from 'Frozen,' and her dad taped it all.

It was such a warmhearted thing to do.

A 6-year-old girl who is bravely fighting an incurable type of brain cancer got a heartwarming pep talk ... from "Frozen's" Princess Anna of Arendelle.

It came in the form of a voice message on her dad's cell phone. But unlike most kids who get a "message from Anna," it wasn't a prerecorded tape or her mom doing a voice.

According to Megan Daley at Entertainment Weekly:

"The actress left an adorable message in the voice of her Frozen character, Anna, for Avery Huffman, a 6-year-old who was recently diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) — an inoperable brain tumor — last month, according to Huffman's official CaringBridge page."

"Bell got into full character for the young fan, congratulating her on being such a "good girl" and "so brave" — and that Anna's sister (Queen Elsa) would love to make her an honorary princess."

It was an extraordinarily big-hearted thing for Bell to do for a little girl who really needed some good news.

It's hard enough just being six, never mind having to deal with doctors, surgeries, and radiation treatments on top of all of it.

But the moment where Avery realizes she's listening to the voice of the real Anna?

My heart just ... well. No words, really. Bell taking the time to speak with Avery makes a sad situation just a little bit brighter.

Avery's friends and relatives have been raising money for her care, and as of July 24, 2015, they were only a few thousand dollars shy of their goal. Hopefully the video of Avery receiving Kristen's message helps spread the word so the family can get Avery the care she needs.

Beluga whales are affectionately known as sea canaries for their song-like vocalizations, and their name is the Russian word for "white."

They are sociable animals that live, hunt, and migrate together in pods, ranging from a few individuals to hundreds of whales. However, they are naturally reticent to interact with humans, although some solitary belugas are known to approach boats.

Once such beluga that's believed to live in Norwegian waters is so comfortable among humans that it played fetch with a rugby ball.

The truth doesn't hurt for an elementary school teacher in California who's gone viral for teaching her class an empowering remix of one of Lizzo's hit songs.

Ms. Mallari — who teaches at Los Medanos Elementary School in Pittsburg, east of San Francisco — took the singer's song, "Truth Hurts," and reworked the lyrics to teach her students how to be great.

Lizzo's song made history this year for being the longest running number one single from a female rap artist. The catchy original lyrics are about boy problems, but Mallari's remix teaches her students about fairness, helping each other out, and embracing their own greatness.

The internet was ablaze after notoriously private actor Keanu Reeves, 55, walked the red carpet at the LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday with his new girlfriend, artist Alexandra Grant, 46.

It was refreshing to see a man in Hollywood dating a woman who's age-appropriate. Older actors are notorious for being with women half their age.
