Certified Young Person, Paul Rudd, might be the sweetest celeb ever...

Twitter users’ hearts melted everywhere to see a celebrity go out of their way, to spread love and support during a trying time for most Americans. They took to Twitter to show their love for the ant-man actor. In case you needed anymore reason to be completely in love with Paul Rudd, the actor gave out cookies to voters waiting in lines at the polls in Brooklyn on Thursday. It was pouring rain in the city, when voters stood in long lines all around New York waiting to cast their vote in this year’s election. At this point, mail-in ballots will not be counted this late and voting at the polls seems to be the only option for some people. Unfortunately, for these New Yorkers, it meant waiting for hours in the rain. Paul Rudd offered a little sunshine to these voters, when he showed up bearing lots of cookies.

The Video

It was caught on tape by Brian Rosenworcel, drummer of the band Guster,  who witnessed the actor and his warm gesture and received a blueberry n’ cream cookie.

Paul Rudd, 51, offered each voter a cookie and a “thank you” for voting during the storm and treacherous lines that the New Yorkers faced on Thursday at the Barclays Center.

Twitter Reacts

Twitter users’ hearts melted everywhere to see a celebrity go out of their way, to spread love and support during a trying time for most Americans. While some celebs are on private islands, or staying politically neutral (*sigh*), actors like Rudd are offering a hand of support. They took to Twitter to show their love for the ant-man actor.

Same, David. We feel this.

We are living vicariously through these Brooklyn voters. I’ll take rain and lines for Paul Rudd cookies any day.

Some fans even got to snap a selfie with the Ant-Man, himself.

Celebrities Are Not Immune

We are not the only ones blushing over everything Paul Rudd does, celebrities cannot help but join in on the action.

Ellen chimed in on Twitter calling Paul Rudd, “the world’s most perfect man.” Ellen, you might have a point there.

He’s not alone

While Paul Rudd may stand out for his actions, he is not the only one doing good to voters waiting in the polling lines. Actress, Mariska Hargitay took to the streets of New York to toss some Milk Bar cookies to citizens waiting in a two hour line on Tuesday. It seems her actions were contagious to Hollywood, inspiring Rudd to take to the polls as well.

Just last week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the US Representative for Queens and the Bronx, played the ever so popular computer game, ‘Among Us,’ to encourage young people to vote this election.

The Avengers cast joined Joe Biden to fundraise for his campaign, and Demi Lovato and Halle Berry teamed up with GLAAD to encourage LGBTQ+ youth in swing states to vote. As the younger generation has a reputation for not showing up to vote, celebrities have been using their role to get people to the polls this year.

 

Whether you mailed in or voted at the polls, you have probably witnessed the extreme lines at the polling centers around the country. People are waiting hours just to cast a vote that will probably take 3 minutes. This election is critical and people know it. According to the BBC, more than 85 million Americans have early voted compared to the 47 million early voters in 2016.
