The Ant-Man and Anchorman star reached out to Brody Ridder after the student from Colorado shared stories of bullying at school, including his fellow classmates refusing to sign his yearbook.

After Brody's story was picked up by the Washington Post and other media outlets, messages of support have come in from across the entertainment world, including a letter and a signed Ant-Man helmet from Rudd himself.

"It's important to remember that even when life is tough that things get better," Rudd wrote in the letter, according to News10.

"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."
