Bryce Anderson is a student who is the most popular kid in Greg's grade. He is famous for knowing that he has a cute butt from girls who admire him. Greg shows that in elementary school, he didn't like girls, for he said, "Girls are stinky-poos!". Greg tries to make him look like an idiot when he hears him talking to any girls. Greg used to defend the girls saying: "I don't think girls are stinky-poos!".


Role in Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Greg talks about how Bryce Anderson is the most popular kid in his grade and most of the girls have a crush on him, even though he didn't like girls in elementary school.

Role in The Ugly Truth

In The Ugly Truth, he appears fooling his friends about a high-pitched noise. It is mentioned by Greg that he does not need a best friend, because he has goons who follow him.

Role in Cabin Fever

In Cabin Fever, he appears during Greg's seventh-grade summer (during the events of Dog Days), where he owned a restaurant created for the neighborhood parents. After the success of the restaurant, he earned over 300 dollars, which he split for his goons (one of whom bought a BB gun to prank Greg).

Role in The Third Wheel

In The Third Wheel, he gets Candy Grams from five different girls when the first few of the Candy grams arrive.

Many girls at Greg's school like him and most boys supposedly worship him, of being loved a lot by girls like Holly Hills and Shelly. Many other girls have crushes on him; however, it is unknown if Ruby Bird does, but she may not due to being more interested in Fregley.

Role in Hard Luck

In Hard Luck, he appears with his other goon going around the cafeteria with Jeffrey Laffley, and he won the Best Hair award.


  • In the films, he is played by Owen Best and is shown as Shelly's boyfriend.
  • It's unknown why he is so popular, but it possibly may be a fact that the girls think he is good looking or he is rich. Greg Heffley says that it isn't very fair that Bryce has all the girls considering he only grew interested in them at the start of middle school, whilst Greg has always been into girls even in elementary where Bryce and his friends hated girls.
    • Though it's possible Bryce is made to make fun of the kids in schools who are popular for practically no reason.
  • Fregley was more popular than him in Hard Luck. However, Bryce won Best hair.
  • He could be retired, as he hasn't appeared since Hard Luck.
  • According to Rowley, he has a cute butt.


  • In the book, Bryce has short hair on the sides and has long hair on the top that is combed upwards.
  • In the movie, Bryce has long hair.
