Pierce isn't the only celeb to voice their support for the people of Ukraine. Last week, Sir Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, shared their own statement on Instagram alongside a photo of the country's blue and yellow flag.

It read: "For over 20 years, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has supported some of the most vulnerable people in Ukraine with access to HIV services and care, as part of our commitment to communities across Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

"We are heartbroken and appalled to see this conflict unfold and our hearts are with the people of Ukraine who do not deserve to live through this nightmare. During these devastating times, we stand for an end to the violence and suffering in Ukraine so that life-saving services and humanitarian aid can reach those desperately in need. @ejaf."

Celine Dion also briefly returned to social media amid her health issues to write: "To the dear courageous people of Ukraine, we are shocked and saddened, and truly inspired by your bravery. Our hearts are with you. We send you love and prayers for peace. Celine xx."

The 53-year-old wrote the words on a paper featuring her official monogram and personally signed it at the end.

If you want to help the people of Ukraine amid the escalating Russian conflict, these are the charities in urgent need of donations: British Red Cross, International Medical Corps, UNICEF and CARE.
