Why Supernatural Star Jared Padalecki Is Speaking Out About Mental Illness

Originally posted 03/10/2015 04:25PM

Both as Supernatural's Sam Winchester and in real life, Jared Padalecki hopes to save lives.

The actor, 32, has recently taken part in a campaign for To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit organization which aims to help those struggling with depression, addiction and suicidal ideation.

"Always Keep Fighting" is the slogan for his T-shirt campaign which has far exceeded its goal of 1,000 sold thanks to the cause's message and thanks to his passionate fanbase (his face emblazoned on the front of the shirt probably hasn't hurt).

It's a match made in CW heaven.

Supernatural star Jensen Ackles and longtime girlfriend, One Tree Hill actress Danneel Harris, got married Saturday in Dallas.

"I've never seen a more stunning bride," a wedding guest tells PEOPLE, "and the couple looked happier than ever."

Ackles, 32, and Harris, 31, who dated for three years and costarred in the 2007 romantic comedy Ten Inch Hero, announced their engagement in November.

"Ultimately [I] want someone who you can pal around with and also be intimate with," Ackles told PEOPLE in 2006 about what he looks for in a woman. "Someone who can laugh at your jokes. It may sound cheesy, but someone who can be your best friend as well as your love."

After a season of slaying demons (and confronting the evil spirit that sent Mom bursting into flames), Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are charged up for more paranormal adventures as brother tag-team Sam and Dean Winchester in the second season of horror series Supernatural (now on The CW). And this time they've got Dad working with them, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan (who guest-starred as Grey's Anatomy's heart-transplant cutie Denny Duquette). PEOPLE recently caught up with the Winchester men on the Vancouver set of their show to dish about their too-close encounter with bees and their real-life father-son dynamics.

NEW SHOWWatch It: Ugly Betty (ABC, 8 p.m. ET) A bizarrely, blissfully successful hybrid of comedy, drama and soap, Ugly Betty is based on a Colombian telenovela and executive-produced by Mexican actress Salma Hayek. I assume those two factors have something to do with the show's sensibility, a campy cheerfulness that's unlike anything in primetime. The basic story, though, will remind viewers of The Devil Wears Prada. Frump princess Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) lands a job as assistant to Daniel Meade, the new playboy editor of Manhattan fashion bible Mode. She's been positioned outside his office precisely because she's so unattractive that Mr. Meade (Eric Mabius) will stay focused. This is cruel. But Betty is smart, smarter than her boss, and guides him past the tiger pits being dug in the fashion jungle by a rival editor. Meanwhile, there are bigger, preposterous mysteries – Mode's previous editor, presumed dead, seems to be alive – and a parade of ridiculous fashionistas: a corporation full of wicked stepsisters to Betty's Cinderella. The show is a fairy tale that doesn't need the payoff of a glass slipper.

As ghost buster Dean Winchester on the WB hit Supernatural, Jensen Ackles can sniff out evil in a heartbeat. But in real life, he's got a nose for what's sexy: "I love the smell of shampoo on a girl's hair," says the former Days of Our Lives actor, 27. Ackles, a Texas native and one of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men of 2005, filled us in about what else makes him weak in the knees.
