The 31-year-old actress took time out of her busy schedule to fly out to St. Judes Hospital in Tennessee, where she chatted and took pictures with a group of delighted youngsters.

One little girl named Breanna smiled ear-to-ear when she received a squeeze from her favourite star. Another young boy named Tyler gave the actress a hug and the sweet moment was captured on camera.

The Oscar winner, who went makeup-free and wore a comfy pink sweater for the surprise outing, treated the kids to a screening of her new animated film Rio 2 – in theatres April 11 – in which she voices the part of Jewel, a female Spix Macaw.
