Will Smith Calls Obama’s Support Of Gay Marriage “Brave” In Election Year

Will Smith has come out in support of President Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage.

Smith told the AP in Berlin that, when it comes to objecting to gay people getting married, it’s all “about semantics.” He continued, “If anybody can find someone to love them and to help them through this difficult thing that we call life, I support that in any shape or form.”

Smith is in the German capital promoting his new movie, Men in Black III, and has been the subject of some intense rumors speculating that he and his wife Jayda Pinkett Smith are both gay.

Like us, he thought Obama might wait till 2013 to come out in support of gay marriage, saying it was it was a “brave” move in an election year.

    Until Will Smith apologizes for refusing to actually do the man-on-man kiss in “Six
    Degrees of Separation” because he didn’t want his son teased at school by friends thinking his dad was a “faggot” [SMITH’s word], he can kiss my ass!

    Hahahaha WHAT is Ms Thing doing in that picture?!?
    “Hmmm, this one’s thicker, but this one’s longer…”

    But the look on his face says
    “Do you really think I can fit BOTH of these in my mouth?!”

  • Jesse Archer

    He’s come a long way since the day he accepted the role of a gay man in Six Degrees of Sp Separation and adamantly refused to do the gay kiss the script and director called for.
