Brad Pitt’s Commitment to the Gays (and Pot Smokers) Is Not an Empty Promise!

Watching Brad Pitt discuss serious things is either: 1) much harder with that gray beard he insists on sporting; 2) much easier, with that gray beard he insists on sporting. But we like Mr. Pitt’s comedic take on real politics, the apex of which hit when joked to Sunday newspaper padding Parade that were he to run for the mayor of New Orleans, it would be on an anti-religion, pro-pot, and pro-gay marriage platform. But: He’s not kidding about those things!

Pitt’s support for The Gs (and his lack of support for religious types) ain’t new. Nor is his hi-lar-i-ous approach to these issues. Speaking to Bill Maher on Real Time, though, he had a chance to articulate his stance: “You really have to check what country you’re living in. The freedom that allows you to practice religion is the same freedom you’re stepping on [by opposing gay marriage]. It’s not right. … If there was a nation of gay married couples who were telling you you couldn’t practice your religion I’d be speaking for you too.”

Man, this Brad Pitt guy is swoon-worthy. If it wasn’t his $100,000 donation to Chad Griffin’s Prop 8 lawsuit, or the fact that he’s smokin’, well now we’re totally read to jump in his lap.


Or maybe it’s his proclivity to pose for pictures with giant dildos.

(Thanks, Jon!)

    I’ve always liked B.P. I’m not sure why anyone wouldn’t .He lovably narcisisticaly puts people on . And is a kind of silly -creative person. I’d be willing to bet that he likes silly gay people. He’s doing what a lot of Hollywood stars, and other people with money should do and that is to save the world while it might be possible.

    Obviously the first thing we need to rid the world of is religious fanaticism. It’s an especially American embarassment..

    He ‘ll be cute no matter what he wears. Imagine climing in the sack (is that a faux pas) with him.

    Gotta love the Brad! Very much fun in interviews and very easy on the eyes! And love that he’s smart too! :-)

  • Jay Pat

    He really just gets hotter.

    I wanna give him a hug…and maybe cop a feel or two.

  • Kid A

    Love the beard!

  • Brad

    Bradley is great. Just a quick clarification: he said he would run on a non-religion platform, not an anti-religion platform. Religious freaks need their freedom, too.

    I have to apologize to Brad Pitt; throughout the 90s and early 2000s I thought he was just a very charming but airheaded actor. His work in New Orleans, as a design for social change advocate, and the effortless-seeming way he’s become a significant activist is impressive.

    Still, Queerty, you should give his other half at least a mention when it comes to his recent equality activism. It can’t hurt that Angelina is openly a member of this LGBT alphabet of ours (while being a top-earning A-lister, which is a rarity in Hollywood.) She’s also made several statements that they won’t get married until everybody can. (I love this: it is great ammo against the idiots who spread stereotypes about bisexuals abandoning their community if they end up with someone of the opposite sex as a partner.)

    Brad gets it – Religion is the problem.

    I don’t put too much weight on the things that come out of the mouths of actors.

  • ThinkRealHard

    @Lex: Even when they’re right?

    Brad is Sex on Legs not because of his looks, but because of his heart. But his looks are mighty fine, too! I think he is getting hotter as he gets older.
