'Modern Family' stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet say 'It gets better'

TV's most high profile gay couple, "Modern Family's" Cameron ( Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell ( Jesse Tyler Ferguson) are taking a stand against bullying, in character and as themselves, in the latest "It Gets Better" PSA.

Shot on the "Modern Family" set, the spot includes a confession from Ferguson about his own experiences with bullying.

"I was actually bullied a lot as a kid," says Ferguson. "I actually had to leave 8th grade and go to another school it got so bad. I was picked on for being 'different.' And then, at my 10-year high school reunion, I was suddenly celebrated for being 'different.'

A serious subject indeed, but the guys couldn't take it on without also having a little fun. Just watch for yourself:
