Pitt has donated $100k to help fight Proposition 8 in California, a measure to make same sex marriage illegal. From Pitt’s statement:
“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.”
