Brad Pitt donating $100,000 to fight gay marriage ban

Brad Pitt announced Wednesday that he’s donating $100,000 to fight California’s Proposition 8, a November ballot initiative that would eliminate 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 marks the largest thus far to the anti-Prop. 8 campaign by an A-list celebrity.

  1. Ty, a Hollywood actor(no matter how smart or correct) is laughed at in D.C.
    He is extra smart imo, to stay out of politics.
    Gay issue is a human rights issue.


  2. Right. Well surely Brad agrees with you that wars need to stop etc but I think you need perhaps a lil reality check and know that you cannot compare your examples with the subject matter that is legalize gay marriage.

  3. Wish he would speak out on more important political matters, like stop the wars, stop the FED, stop the spending…

  4. Yes, Brad has been on the right side of the issue for quite some time. It is nice to see others following his lead, like his friend George.

    Oh, that top photo is jaw droppingly beautiful, just love the body language and attitude. Thanks again.

  5. Yeah, this was in ’08..He was the first A list celeb to actually donate big $ & give a hoot & bring awareness.Never gave up.
    Bravo Mr. pitt *claps*
