Anne Hathaway Donates Sale Of Wedding Photos To Marriage Equality

Anne Hathaway married her longtime boyfriend Adam Shulman in September and the Les Miserables actress wants to help ensure that everyone has the same right, by donating sales of her wedding photos to marriage equality advocacy groups.

Freedom to Marry reports:

Now, Hathaway is doing her part to ensure that same-sex couples across the country can enjoy a fairytale wedding like hers; this week, she announced that she’ll be donating some of the sales from her wedding photographs to non-profits advocating for marriage for same-sex couples, including Freedom to Marry. Reports also indicate that she’ll be splitting the profits between groups like the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and The Girl Effect.

Hathaway spoke out in 2008 about her gay brother Michael and how their relationship inspired her to become an ally and fight for gay rights.

“I don’t consider myself just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family,” Hathaway said when accepting an award from the Human Rights campaign. “And so, I’m doing what we should all do with our families – I’m loving you, I support you, I completely accept you as you are, as I hope you do me, and if anyone ever tries to hurt you, I’m going to give them hell.”

      I truly appreciate it when a person not only talks the talk, but walks the walk as well. Thank you Anne.

      Yes she has always been very supportive. I remember a few years ago, she said her entire family switched from Catholic to Epsicopalian because she couldn’t continue practicing a religion that didn’t support her brother
