Brad Pitt may be for Obama, but his mom is not

Apparently, while actor Brad Pitt may be a supporter of President Obama’s re-election, the same cannot be said about his mother, Jane Pitt.

According to the ABC News blog, Jane Pitt wrote a letter to the editor of her hometown newspaper, the Springfield (Mo.) News-Leader. In it, Mom Pitt implored “Christians” to vote for Mitt Romney in November.

She called Romney a “family man with high morals,” and cited his opposition to abortion and gay marriage as reasons to vote for him for president, instead of the incumbent.

In the past, her son has said he and his longtime partner, actress Angelina Jolie, would not marry until everyone — meaning gay couples — could. However, due to the pressure from their children, Pitt and Jolie now are engaged, although no wedding date has been set.
