Anne Hathaway has pledged to donate
some of the sales from her wedding photographs to groups advocating
for gay marriage.
The 29-year-old Hathaway married
longtime boyfriend Adam Shulman in September. She sold several
pictures of their big day to several media outlets.
The Dark Knight Rises co-star said
she has earmarked the earnings for groups such as the American Cancer
Society, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, The Girl Effect and
Freedom to Marry.
“We thank Hathaway and Shulman for
their support and appreciate their decision to take the opportunity
of their nuptials to speak out about why marriage matters,” wrote
Adam Polaski in a Freedom to Marry blog post.
During a chat with Chelsea Handler
published last year in celebrity glossy Interview, Hathaway
called on her home state of New Jersey to legalize marriage equality
and discussed her older gay brother.
In accepting the Human Rights
Campaign's Ally Award in 2008, Hathaway said she didn't consider
herself an ally to the LGBT community but family.
“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,” she said. (The video is
