Brad Pitt on Gay Marriage: 'Someday Soon This Discrimination Will End'
Many rejoiced when same-sex marriage was legalized in New York state. While Brad Pitt was among them, he says there's a long way to go. He has famously said in the past that he and Angelina Jolie would not get married until everyone has the same right.
He says the recent court decision is "encouraging," but added that everyone should be able to marry "no matter what state they inhabit."
"It is encouraging that New York has joined the movement to grant equal marriage rights to its citizens," Brad told People. "But it is each American’s Constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit. No state should decide who can marry and who cannot. Thanks to the tireless work of so many, someday soon this discrimination will end and every American will be able to enjoy their equal right to marriage."
In the meantime, Brad and Angelina seem perfectly content with their own unconventional family -- with or without a marriage license.
When it comes to his work, last week Brad took a break between filming his movie World War Z in La Valletta, Malta, giving his family a behind-the-scenes tour. He held Zahara’s hand tightly, as they explored the set and chatted with the movie crew.
