Brad Pitt praises marriage equality passage in N.Y.

HollywoodNews.com: President Barack Obama may be taking political cover behind the argument that each individual state should decide the same-sex marriage issue, but Brad Pitt is not a fan of that approach.

The Oscar-nominated actor, who has famously said he and partner Angelina Jolie will not marry until same-sex couples are also allowed to do so, has spoken with People magazine about the recent passage of marriage equality in New York and reiterated his stance that it should be a federal issue.

“It is encouraging that New York has joined the movement to grant equal marriage rights to its citizens. But it is each American’s Constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit,” Pitt said. “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.”

Well said Mr. Pitt!
