Anne Hathaway - Anne Hathaway Pushes Barack Obama On Same Sex Marriage

Anne Hathaway has signed an open letter to President Barack Obama, urging him to change his stance on same-sex marriage.
Anne Hathaway, the American actress and star of 'Love and Other Drugs' has signed a letter that was posted to President Obama on Monday (14th March 2011), appealing for him to be more supportive towards gay marriage, reports Yahoo News.Hathaway signed the letter along with the television host Ellen Degeneres, Glee comedian and actress Jane Lynch and several others high profile stars. Obama has recently spoken about his 'evolving' opinion on gay marriage and celebrities such as Martin Sheen, Mya and DeGeneres' partner Portia De Rossi have already noted that the President could be more supportive of the gay rights movement. The latest letter, titled 'Say I Do, Mr President', is part of a campaign by the marriage equality group 'Freedom to Marry' and reads, "In February, you made a powerful statement about the law. We ask you now for your leadership on ending the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage - an exclusion that harms millions of Americans each day. Whether to end discrimination in marriage is a question America has faced before, and faces again today".
The letter then urges to Obama to "end exclusion from marriage" and adds, "We ask you to complete your journey and join us, and the majority of Americans, who support the freedom to marry". Anne Hathaway, who recently hosted the Academy Awards, has been confirmed to play 'Catwoman' in the forthcoming 'Batman' movie.
