Brad ignores mum to back Barack Obama

Wednesday September 12, 2012

Although his mother Jane may prefer a Republican in the White House, Brad Pitt will be backing Barack Obama in the US Presidential Election.

The star said: "I'm an Obama supporter and I'm backing his US election campaign."

The Meet Joe Black star and his fiancée, Angelina Jolie, have said they won't tie the knot until gay marriage is legalised in America.

This one of the main sources of contention between Brad and his mother's differing choices for the ballet box.

Speaking about the issue, Brad said: "Gay marriage is inevitable. The next generation, they get it. It is just a matter of time before it comes a reality."

However, his mother Jane, a Mormon, disagrees because of her "Christian conviction".
