Brad Pitt donates $100,000 for gay marriage




It used to be Brad Pitt didn't even want to marry Angelina Jolie. Now he's so pro-marriage, he proposed to Angie in April and has decided to donate $100,000 for the fight for marriage equality in four states. Call The Juice* crazy, but it's possible next week's election may have had something to do with the timing.

"It's unbelievable to me that people's lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days," Pitt wrote in a Wednesday email to members of the Human Rights Campaign, according to People. "If you're like me, you don't want to have to ask yourself on the day after the election, what else could I have done?" HRC is fighting for gay rights and marraige equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington state.

HRC President Chad Griffin said the group is "proud to be working with him as we show that fundamental fairness will win at the ballot box." As in, now that we have plenty of moola to pay for ads, it's fair to say we can run too many campaign ads, too.
