Brangelina still won't marry until the gays can!

In a 2006 issue of Esquire, Brad Pitt famously stated that he and Angelina would only "consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able." Looks like he's making good on his word, because he just donated $100,000 to help stop the California ballot initiative called Propostition 8 that would ban same-sex marriages in the state, reports OMG. The money is intended for fundraising, awareness and activism by the group Californians Against Eliminating Basic Rights, and his contribution is also the largest single donation to date by a celebrity.

Let's review, shall we?

Last month we reported on Proposition 8, which seeks to overturn the ruling that gays can marry in the state of California, the same ruling that recently helped Ellen Degeneres and her long time partner Portia de Rossi (um, I think I read somewhere that it's Portia Degeneres now?) realize their dream of making their relationship all official like. When celebrities get political on us, sometimes it's a disaster, but in this case, the intervention of the rich and famous has truly furthered the cause.

"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," Pitt said in a statement.

Bad ass Brad! To make your own donation or get involved, check out No on Prop 8.
