Brad Pitt has reiterated his support
for President Barack Obama and believes that gay marriage is
The 48-year-old Pitt made his remarks
to UK daily The Telegraph during a screening of his
forthcoming film Killing Them Softly in London.
“I am an Obama supporter and I'm
backing his election campaign. Gay marriage is inevitable. The next
generation, they get it. It is just a matter of time before it
becomes a reality,” Pitt
told the paper.
The actor's positions are a sharp
contrast to those of his mother, Jane Pitt.
Jane Pitt criticized Obama's support
for such issues in announcing her support for his GOP rival, Mitt
“I think any Christian should spend
much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with
high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares
Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a
Mormon,” she wrote, referring Romney.
“Any Christian who does not vote or
writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack
Hussein Obama – a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for
years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of
Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies
and same-sex marriage.”
