Benicio del Toro meets Pope Francis in Vatican

Many were surprised at the Vatican by a special visit: Hollywood actor Benicio del Toro.

The star accompanied the organization SOMOS Community Care to a meeting with the pope.

He even got to briefly greet Pope Francis.

“It's an incredible experience. Pope is hope. Pope is hope.”
“I'm here with SOMOS. Coming here with a bunch of doctors, people that really work hard to help the needy in New York. So I'm here with them.”

With this visit, he supported the organization “Somos” which brings together doctors who serve migrants without many resources in New York.

The actor was only in the Vatican a few hours and he also visited the Sistine Chapel.
