As we mourn the final season of “Breaking Bad,” let’s celebrate the lasting impact the show’s stars have made on our lives, both on and off camera. These are our fave “Breaking Bad” stars gone good!
+ RJ Mitte Reps Cerebral Palsy
Like his “Breaking Bad” character Walt Jr., RJ Mitte has cerebral palsy. He has become an advocate for those living with the neurological and physical condition, and once said, “Being disabled doesn’t mean you’re disabled.” RJ was bullied a lot as a child because of how he walked and talked, but he praises his friends for sticking up to him. “When someone pushed me down, my friends stood up for me,” he said, reminding us that it’s never OK to stand by while someone is being treated unfairly.
+ Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul Stay Kind
What’s better than watching an episode of “Breaking Bad”? Watching an episode of “Breaking Bad” with leading men Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul! Enter for a chance to watch the series finale (boooo!) with them through charity site, Omaze. The prize package includes flights and accommodations, and even an airport pickup by Aaron himself! One entry is $10, and all proceeds benefit the Kind Campaign, an organization devoted to ending girl-on-girl bullying that was started by none other than Aaron’s wife, Lauren Parsekian.
+ Anna Gunn Turns Lemons Into Lemonade
Leading lady Anna Gunn knows the importance of teaching kids to give back. Back in oh-ten, she and her two daughters volunteered at Alex’s Lemonade Stand in Hollywood, where they raised funds and awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Back in 2010, we also had no idea that “Breaking Bad” wouldn’t last forever. With the series finale just around the corner, we’re feeling a little Breaking Sad.
