The actor has donated $100,000 to the Human Right Campaign to support that organization’s work on behalf of marriage equality.
Given that the election is less than a week away (Nov. 6, don’t forget to vote!), and gay rights are once again a hot-button issue nationwide, and in particular in states like Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington, Pitt also has pledged to match donations from HRC supporters up to $100,000.
This isn’t the first time Pitt has stepped up to the gay plate: In 2008, he donated a similar amount to try and stop California’s Prop 8.
Oh, Brad Pitt, you friend of friends – I heart ya.
