Hollywood actor and director Ben Stiller heaped praise on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv on Monday to mark World Refugee Day as Russia's ongoing invasion there forces millions to flee. Stiller, who was visiting Ukraine and Poland as a goodwill ambassador of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) gave a rushed walk and extended his hands to meet Zelenskyy, an actor and stand-up comedian before he was elected president in 2019.

Both men said they were honored to meet each other. "You're my hero," Stiller told Zelenskyy inside the presidential palace. "You're amazing. You quit a great acting career for this.

Not so great as yours," Zelenskyy said back with a smile. 

"No, but pretty great," Stiller joked, putting his hand over his heart at times. "But what you've done and the way that you've rallied the country and for the world, it's really inspiring." 

Zelenskyy gushed at the compliment, saying, "It's too much for me."
