As Barack Obama said last night, “That…

Star Couplings: Brad Pitt Hearts Gay Rights

Brad Pitt has expanded his resume to include “gay activist.” He just donated $100,000 to the anti-Proposition 8 campaign. Prop. 8 would ban gay marriage in California and make the unions constitutionally illegal. Go, Brad! [Perez Hilton]…
