Brad Pitt Releases Statement on Marriage Equality

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Brad Pitt is such a strong believer in marriage equality that he released a statement to on the recent legalization of same-sex marriage in New York State.

Pitt wrote, "It is encouraging that New York has joined the movement to grant equal marriage rights to its citizens.  But it is each American's constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit."

“No state should decide who can marry and who cannot," he added.  "Thanks to the tireless work of so many, someday soon this discrimination will end and every American will be able to enjoy their equal right to marriage."

Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie had said they'd consider tying the knot once everyone in the country was legally able to do so.
