Anne's sartorial support goes theatrical

by Jeremy Hooper

A big thanks to Anne Hathaway for keeping the White Knot going. At last night's Tony Awards, the Bride Wars and Rachel Getting Married actress once again showed her ribbon-based support for ending the war on Rachel getting married to her bride Judy:

Picture 2-248

It's not easy for a straight gal to out-gay the other Tony presenters. But she kind of did, at least in the activist sense. So yeah -- Brava, A.H.

Your thoughts

There are plenty of reasons to love Anne Hathaway, and that's just one.
But I'd like to point out that the (Hetero) producer of the revival of "Hair" spoke out in favor of marriage equality in his acceptance speech too.
How much did you love Neil's closing number, btw?

Bill: Neil was fab, fab, fab. Just added the closing song video. Credit should also be given to whoever put that together in such a short amount of time!

I hope someone will post the HAIR acceptance vid. I actually missed it myself.

I'll second the thank you to the HAIR producer who actually spoke up for equal rights. It's easy to wear a ribbon, but we need more. We need everyone who supports equality to take advantage of every time they have a mic in their hands, and SAY SOMETHING!

CNOTE: To be fair, Anne *has* spoken out many, many times. She was also great on the Rick Warren fiasco, calling that one out when very few celebs wanted to do so.

The parody was written by the guys who wrote the score for "Hairspray". I think they wrote several verses for any possible combination of winners,so he'd be prepared for whoever won.
