We certainly hear a lot about the terrible things that celebrities do, but too often some of the great things they do with their fame or fortune slips by under the radar. Here are 15 good deeds that some selfless celebs have quietly done.

1. Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne has admitted that he sometimes helps out struggling actors financially. “The greatest privilege that I had was that my parents lived in London. So when I was out of university and out of work for a year, working in a pub, I didn’t pay rent. And I get letters from people trying to go to drama school and needing to pay their rent,” he said. “And so that’s something I occasionally do. It’s impossibly expensive to live in London.”
