The Cast of True Blood Has a Message: It Gets Better

Many members of the cast of True Blood know what it's like to be picked on by bullies, and they have a message for young people who are confronted with this issue every day: It gets better. Whether it was a hateful letter in Deborah Ann Woll's locker, personal tragedies in Kristen Bauer's life, or even a young Joe Manganiello getting picked on by other kids—they all faded away. Alan Ball, the creator of 'True Blood,' says he participated in the campaign because "bullies are small, pathetic losers and we need to stop putting up with them and letting them have power."
