The kids are not all right in America, according to Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo. The outspoken actor rallied with the 99 percent in New York earlier this month to show his support for the members of a middle class that he described as “in freefall, plummeting to the bottom.” Ruffalo explained the protesters’ desperation to interviewers, saying, “There’s a hopelessness that’s descended upon people and that hopelessness, it crushes dignity.” Though he was understanding of some of his fellow actors’ hesitation to show public support for the movement (“Who needs the headache of being attacked by Fox News or Rush Limbaugh?”), he has remained unabashed in his own support for Occupy Wall Street, even publishing an editorial in The Guardian, inviting any and all to join the movement.
