Actress and recent Oscar host Anne Hathaway has redeemed herself in the eyes of humanity (seriously, that Oscar gig was… not good) by signing a letter to President Obama endorsing same-sex marriage.

The letter, posted to Obama last Monday, was also signed by Ellen Degeneres, Jane Lynch, Martin Sheen, and Portia De Rossi.

According to Irish Central, the letter, “entitled ‘Say I Do Mr President,’  is the latest move by the marriage equality group ‘Freedom to Marry.’”

“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… We ask you to complete your journey and join us, and the majority of Americans, who support the freedom to marry.”

It’s refreshing to see members of Hollywood actually pushing for something socially worthwhile, as opposed to pushing awful Bruce Villanch jokes down the throat of the American populace—seriously, Hollywood, stop it, just stop it.  Stick with using celebrity a fulcrum for social change instead of dropping yuck-yuck zingers during award ceremonies, ok?  Thanks!

What do you think of the letter to Obama?
