Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe took to Twitter to express his condolences, writing, "Ah Turkey.

My heart. Devastating news." Antonio Banderas, another Hollywood star, also took to the social media platform to share a map of the earthquake-stricken region, with a message of solidarity, saying, "I am hugging the Turkish and Syrian people in solidarity because of this tragedy."

Three-time Grammy winner, Dua Lipa, also shared her support on Instagram, re-posting Yigit Turhan's message and adding, "My heart breaks for Turkey.

Sending love and prayers to everyone who was affected."

A Call to Action

In addition to sending messages of support, some of the world's biggest names are also calling for action. Mark Ruffalo, an Oscar-winning actor, director, producer, and screenwriter, shared a post about the Ahbap association and encouraged others to lend a hand in the search and rescue efforts.

George Takei, a famous actor best known for his role in "Star Trek," called on the world to come to the aid of the thousands of victims in Turkey and Syria, writing, "The world must do what it can to come to the aid of the many thousands of victims."
