Spielberg Also Gives Cash to Fight Prop. 8

110_20_steven_spielberg_.jpg As we reported earlier heartthrob Brad Pitt gave a $100k to combat Proposition 8 that wishes to change the California constitution to ban gay marriage. Now as Ted Johnson of Variety is reporting Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw have matched that amount.

Variety reports:

Spielberg and Capshaw said in a statement, “By writing discrimination into our state constitution, Proposition 8 seeks to eliminate the right of each and every citizen in our state to marry regardless of sexual orientation. Such discrimination has NO place in California’s constitution, or any other.”

It’s not that we’re shocked that Hollywood is so pro-gay. It’s that they’re so pro-marriage.
