Paul Rudd Sends Letter to Boy Whose Classmates Wouldn’t Sign His Yearbook: ‘Things Get Better’

Ant-Man may be the smallest Marvel character, but he has a big heart!

Actor Paul Rudd 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.

According to a post shared on Facebook by Brody’s mother, Paul wrote a handwritten letter saying, “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.”

Since then, Rudd has also FaceTimed Brody and they’ve texted too. Cassandra shared a video of their FaceTime call writing, “Something AMAZING happened today!!!! Brody got to talk to Paul Rudd! ANT-MAN!!!! Like this this real life?! Pinch me now! Brody was so excited! I wanted to share a clip of their call! Shout out to Paul Rudd, and his sister Mandi for reaching out and setting this up! You truly made Brody so happy! My heart is so full right now!”

Rudd isn’t the only star to reach out to the young boy, the cast of Broadway’s “Dear Evan Hansen” invited him to a show and asked him to bring his yearbook so they could sign it.
