Susan Sarandon has voiced her support for marriage equality in an ‘Americans For Marriage Equality’ video by the Human Rights Campaign.
“While marriage might not be my thing, if it’s your thing you damn well ought to be able to have it equally and unequivocally. The America I want to live in celebrates diversity and believes in equal rights for all families no matter what what they look like.”
Susan Sarandon’s celebrated acting career has spanned more than four decades, earning her dozens of award nominations and wins, including the 1995 Best Actress Academy Award forDead Man Walking.

“Like most Americans, Susan Sarandon knows that all families deserve to be treated with respect, dignity, and equality under the law. We are incredibly grateful to Susan for speaking out in favor of marriage equality, and for lending her powerful voice to HRC’s fight for fairness nationwide.”
