And This is Why We Love Brad Pitt

He donates big money to marriage equality

He had us in Thelma and Louise. But now Brad Pitt is really showing us what he’s got. The actor made a massive donation to the fight for marriage equality, saying, “It’s unbelievable to me that people’s lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days.” And he’s right.

This all comes as he donates $100,000 to the HRC‘s National Marriage Fund, which is helping to support ballot initiatives in four states this election year.

“In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples – our friends and neighbors – are worthy of the same protections as everyone else,” says Pitt.

It’s enough to make us forgive him for this.
