He’s always been a philanthropic superstar, and Brad Pitt's latest charitable contribution went for marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington.

The “Fight Club” actor dropped $100,000 to the Human Rights Campaign in hopes of giving a big boost to the gay marriage agenda.

In an email, Pitt declared, "It's unbelievable to me that people's lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days."

"If you're like me, you don't want to have to ask yourself on the day after the election, what else could I have done?"

Back in July 2011, Brad stated, "It is each American's Constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit. No state should decide who can marry and who cannot."
