Actress Charlize Theron has repeated her calls for gay marriage, saying she will not tie the knot with her boyfriend until gay and lesbian couples can do the same.
Appearing on The View on Thursday, she was asked by host Barbara Walters when she would marry long-term boyfriend Stuart Townsend. Theron replied: “I don’t want to get married because I feel that right now the institution of marriage feels very one-sided, and I want to live in a country where we all have equal rights.”

Several years ago, she was honoured by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation for increasing “visibility and understanding” of homosexuality.
