Paul Rudd proved last year that he really cares about people with his act of kindness. A  mother Cassandra Ridder posted on a parenting group that most of her child’s classmates refused to sign his yearbook which later made many high school students come to his classroom and sign his yearbook during class. Many people around the world showed support for the 11-year-old and so did, actor Paul Rudd. He sent Brody a signed Ant-Man helmet with a personal note which read, “To my good friend Brody for when he takes on the world!,” as reported by GOD.

Rudd also sent a letter in which he mentioned that “it was great talking to him the other day.” He goes on to say, “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!” He concludes it by saying, “I can’t wait to see all the amazing things you’re going to accomplish.” Rudd signed off the letter as “your pal, Paul.”

Brody’s mother Ridder said that the two have been exchanging messages and have also FaceTimed each other. Many on Twitter applauded the actor for what he did. A Twitter user wrote, “In a world where you can simply not care about someone in pain because you don't know them from a hole in the wall... ...be Paul Rudd.”Another wrote, “Paul Rudd is a national treasure.” A third one said, “He really seems lovely, doesn’t he!?”

However, this is not the first time that Rudd has done something to help somebody out. In 2014, when the owner of a candy store Ira Gutner died, he, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and their spouses, Hilarie Burton and Julie Rudd bought the shop and kept it as it was for the community.

They had been visiting the shop for years and like others in the community they also could not imagine the establishment being shut down. It was a very personal decision for them.

Both Morgan and Rudd are involved with the shop, Rudd even works at the register occasionally. The store sells candies, desserts, and pastries among other things. Rudd believes that it is important to be part of the community. “One of the most important things any human can experience is to be a part of a community and feel connected to where you live and to other people who live there, especially in a job like mine," said Rudd.

Both Morgan and Rudd have homes in Rhinebeck, New York. "It's the first time I've felt at home in my entire adult life. It's a combination of the people and the scenery. It's a different vibe from my 20 years in LA when I didn't even know my neighbors," said Morgan. 



 

 

Despite the store being backed by Hollywood stars, it is mainly run by local people. John Traver, who started working for Gutner at the age of 15 said, “It continued to operate in the wake of Ira’s death. Due to lots of hard work and good fortune, it continued to operate,” said Traver.
