Shawn Mendes was caught quietly doing a good deed on Thursday.
The 25-year-old singer, who was spotted hanging out on the beach with Big Brother UK’s Charlie Travers, helped a homeless man in West Hollywood.
The Canadian singer was seen approaching the shirtless man with several pieces of clothing packed in an Erewhon bag.
Among the items inside were a white zip jacket, navy blue and green stripes, which were tried on the container.
The new jacket seemed to fit him well.
New clothes will come in handy when temperatures in the Los Angeles area are getting cooler with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s.
Shawn looked casual wearing beige cargo pants and a black T-shirt with brown shoes.
It appears that the Wonder Artist had mutton chop sideburns as well as a mustache and goatee, perhaps for a role in an upcoming film.
The Juno Award winner has a few projects currently listed in pre-production and development on IMDb.
Now that the actors’ strike is temporarily over, 100 guest stars could soon be back at work along with 160,000 others who will vote on new contracts struck with major Hollywood studios.
The sticking points in the four-month walkout included higher compensation and protection from artificial intelligence.
One of Shawn’s upcoming projects will let him use his musical talents.
He will star in Do It Scared, a biopic of Father Rob Galea, a priest who became a singing sensation after becoming an X-Factor finalist.
The Mercy singer took a break from touring in 2022, citing the need to work on mental health issues.
“I needed to take time that I personally never took, to reinvent myself and come back stronger,” he wrote on social media in July 2022.
‘I have to give first priority to my health.’
The singer and songwriter released his first music following that announcement in June, a single titled What the Hell Are We Dying For?
‘I feel like for the past year I’ve been really struggling with finding my voice in the studio, finding myself musically, and even getting the courage to get in the room with writers or step into the booth. I am staying. And sing,’ he told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 at the time.
‘I was in New York and on the receiving end of realizing a lot of things about relationships, about my career, about the environment,’ he said.
‘I was in the studio and had this moment of deep despair and I finally started feeling this inspiration.’
