Actress Julianne Moore is calling on U.S. legislators to legalise same sex marriage, insisting people of all sexual orientations should have the same rights.
The Hours star, who plays a lesbian with Annette Bening as her partner in new movie The Kids Are All Right, admits she is dismayed that gay couples have been banned from celebrating their love in a traditional wedding ceremony.
So she has thrown her support behind a campaign to turn it into law, especially in her hometown of New York City.
She tells WENN.com, "Absolutely, everyone should have the same rights. It's a right, no one should be denied that."
Moore isn't the only famous New York resident to lend her voice to the same sex marriage campaign - Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon has been campaigning for the cause for the past year so she can wed her partner Christine Marinoni in the Big Apple.
