Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie once told press that they weren’t interested in getting married until marriage equality is a reality in the US — though recently, their kids have pressured them to hurry it up.
“NCIS” actress Pauley Perrette, however, is sticking to her guns — she says that she and her fiance Thomas Arklie will not tie the knot until Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California, is overturned.
“Me & #MyMarine are totally engaged now but will NOT GET MARRIED UNTIL #Prop8 is OVER,” she wrote on Twitter. Arklie, 49, is a former British marine who is now an aspiring actor.
Perrette, a staunch supporter of the NOH8 campaign, also tweeted this photo of herself with Arklie. The 41-year-old actress was recently voted the most likable television star in a recent AP poll.
“I am honored to play one of the best characters on TV, that’s a role
model for young girls around the world,” she tells OTRC. “I hear from people’s parents,
grandparents and girls themselves that the character I play, the
fictional character, has encouraged them to go into math and science,
which is such a blessing.”
