Hugh Grant has recorded a video for in support of the Out4Marriage campaign, which supports marriage equality between all genders and sexual orientation.
In the video, Grant says, ““Hello I’m Hugh Grant. I’m not a massive believer in marriage; I think my own biography is testament to that but I do think that love is the same for everyone. And I do think that everyone should have the same rights. If you want to get married, whether you’re gay, straight, transgender [or] whatever, you should definitely be allowed to do that”.
Joseph Musgrave, for the campaign, said, ““There has been a tendency amongst some media commentators to subject the equal marriage debate to a mere political calculation. Although it’s great to have such a well known celebrity support us, Hugh’s key contribution is to emphasise the human element – this is all about the recognition of love and freeing people to decide how they, and not the state, choose to act on that.”
The campaign is planning on releasing a video from a major British star each week until the last week of October. Hugh Grant will next be seen in Cloud Atlas as well as Bridget Jones’s Baby, which is the planned third movie in the Bridget Jones series.
