I don't know how you CAN'T love Paul Rudd. I mean it's almost cliche at this point to love him, but how can you not?
Solid actor. Likeable as hell.
And then he does stuff like this......which is WAY above and beyond any supposed arbitrary obligation people feel like celebs carry.
Paul Rudd, known for his lovable persona onscreen and off-, has a new friend in a 12-year-old Colorado boy.
The Ant-Man actor, 53, recently reached out to Brody Ridder, after hearing that the seventh-grader had been bullied in school and that kids had refused to sign his yearbook.
Rudd sent the boy a letter, along with a signed Ant-Man helmet. The boy's mother, Cassandra, shared images of both on Facebook, News10 reported.
"It's important to remember that even when life is tough that things get better. There are so many people that love you and think you're the coolest kid there is — me being one of them! I can't wait to see all the amazing things you're going to accomplish," Rudd wrote, according to the news outlet.
Since then, Rudd has also FaceTimed the boy and they've texted too, according to Brody's mom, Cassandra, who has documented the budding friendship on Facebook.
Brody's story has since touched thousands of others throughout the country, first starting with local high school students in Westminster, Colo., who banded together to sign his yearbook, to even the Broadway cast of Dear Evan Hansen.
