Brad Pitt Donates $100,000 to Support Same-Sex Marriage

Brad Pitt donated $100,000 to fight California's Proposition 8, a ballot initiative that would take away same-sex couples' right to marry.

"Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8," the actor said in a statement.

Pitt's donation is the largest thus far to the anti-Prop 8 campaign by an A-list celebrity, the L.A Times reported.

Look back at Brad Pitt through the ages.

“It is our hope that others in the entertainment industry will step up and match Brad Pitt’s heroic commitment to quality and defeating Prop. 8," Political strategist Chad Griffin said in a statement.

Pitt has said he won't wed Angelina Jolie until gay marriage is made legal.

"Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able," the actor told Esquire.

This week, Pitt and Jolie ranked sixth on Parade magazine's list of the most generous celebrities. They gave $8.4 million in 2007.

Good for him- but I think it's stupid for him to say he won't marry Angelina until gay marriage is allowed. I just feel like it's far fetched. It was probably an excuse to put it off even longer...

Oh Yay - Brad and Angie to save the world ...........

I think it's great for any person to do this sort of thing, but why is it advertised like he's Mother Theresa?

Because it's a great opportunity for a charity or not-for-profit organisation to get some publicity out of it. I'm sure it was on their stationery, not his! I do PR for a not-for-profit - if you can get publicity out of a donation, it's doubly good! Chat Icon
