modern family it gets better 'Modern Family' stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet say 'It gets better'

TV’s most high profile gay couple, “Modern Family’s” Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) are taking a stand against bullying, in character and as themselves, in the latest “It Gets Better” PSA.

Shot on the “Modern Family” set, the spot includes a confession from Ferguson about his own experiences with bullying.

“I was actually bullied a lot as a kid,” says Ferguson. “I actually had to leave 8th grade and go to another school it got so bad. I was picked on for being ‘different.’ And then, at my 10-year high school reunion, I was suddenly celebrated for being ‘different.’

A serious subject indeed, but the guys couldn’t take it on without also having a little fun. Just watch for yourself:
