Excerpted from The Independent: Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane, threw her support behind Mitt Romney earlier this year, criticising Barack Obama for his liberal views on same-sex marriage. However, the Hollywood star tells Mandrake that the American president retains his vote.
“I am an Obama supporter and I’m backing his election campaign,” Pitt says at a screening of his forthcoming film Killing Them Softly, at the Mayfair Hotel in London. “Gay marriage is inevitable. The next generation, they get it. It is just a matter of time before it becomes a reality.”
Jane Pitt called on Christian voters to accept the Republican Romney, who is a Mormon. She said she would be happy to vote for a “family man with high morals” who shares “Christian conviction” on homosexuality over the likes of Obama.
The star of Ocean’s Eleven said in 2006 said that he would not marry Angelina Jolie until America allowed same-sex unions. Pitt and Jolie announced their engagement in April. The following month, Obama declared his support for homosexual marriage.
