After mourning the recent suicides of several LGBT teens who were victims of bullying, celebrities are springing to action with the "It Gets Better" campaign.

The movement in which famous folks address gay and questioning youth about having courage in the face of torment has gained support from the likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and Joe Jonas.

On Monday, several boldface names combined forces in the clip above, including Anne Hathaway, Jenny McCarthy, Kristin Cavallari of "The Hills," Ian Somerhalder, transgender star Candis Cayne, Greg Grunberg, Rex Lee of "Entourage," Julie Benz, Michael Chiklis and Kat Graham

News outlets including MTV have been spearheading the star recruiting, with the Trevor Project attached as a resource for gay teens needing support.
