2. Chris Colfer

The Glee star notes that although he wasn’t physically bullied, he remembers being socially and verbally assaulted throughout high school. Colfer said, “It definitely taught me to be quick on my feet with witty comebacks. I remember one time someone screamed ‘fag’ at me in the hallway, and I screamed back, ‘Yeah, but can you spell it?’ Everyone in the hallway laughed at the other kid; it was nice to reverse the abuse.” He states that he relates very closely to his character Kurt on the show, because he’s gone through many of the same situations. Colfer is an active supporter of the It Gets Better Campaign and The Trevor Project, he even dedicated his Golden Globe Award to bullied kids in the LGBT community in 2011. In 2013, Colfer filmed a PSA with Elmo about anti-bullying for Sesame Street in Communities.
