Natalie Portman is petitioning President Barack Obama for gay couples to have equal marriage rights.
The 'Black Swan' actress has signed Freedom to Marry's 'Say, "I Do"' letter, joining more than 100,000 people in supporting the campaign, which believes all citizens should have the right to wed equally.
Evan Wolfson, president of the campaign group, said: "Natalie Portman and her fiance, Benjamin Millepied, are in love, and believe all loving couples should be able to share in the freedom to marry without discrimination.
"That is why they are joining the more than 100,000 people on Freedom to Marry's 'Say, "I Do"' Open Letter calling on the president to do the right thing and become part of America's majority for marriage."
A large number of celebrities have previously signed the letter - which asks President Obama to "clarify" the current situation around gay marriage - including openly lesbian 'Glee' star Jane Lynch, actress Anne Hathaway and Martin Sheen.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have unofficially put their weight behind the campaign, with Brad previously saying they would not get married until gay couples also have the right to do so.
