On the eve of the long-anticipated trailer for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” Paul Rudd was demonstrating what it means to be a real-life superhero.
Helping children was at the forefront of his mind, as he led “Paul Rudd’s 9th Annual All-Star Bowling Benefit for SAY. The Stuttering Association for the Young” at Bowlero Chelsea Piers.
Rudd was starring opposite Julia Roberts in Broadway’s Three Days of Rain when his journey with SAY began.
“I was playing a character that stuttered,” he explains. “I didn’t know much about stuttering, and I didn’t want to just watch an actor in a movie and try to copy that.
“I wanted to talk to somebody who really knows what’s going on and has to deal with this affliction,” he said in an interview with The New York Independent.
Rudd turned to the internet for research and met Taro Alexander, the Vice President of SAY, a non-profit organization that provides, support, advocacy and life-changing experiences for young people who stutter.
SAY offers innovative and thoughtful programs, such as summer camps, speech therapy and creative arts programming, all of which address the physical, social and emotional impacts of stuttering.
