Just weeks after the Obama administration announced it would no longer legally defend the Defense of Marriage act, some of the president's biggest Hollywood supporters have signed a letter urging him to go a step further and legalize same-sex marriage.

Anne Hathaway, Martin Sheen, Jane Lynch and Ellen DeGeneres
are among the actors who have signed an open letter sponsored by Freedom to Marry, a New York-based advocacy group working to promote marriage rights for same-sex couples.
Citing Obama's decision on DOMA last month, the letter calls for Obama to exhibit similar leadership on same-sex marriage rights. "Whether to end discrimination in marriage is a question America has faced before, and faces again today…

It is a question that calls for clarity from the president," the letter reads. "We ask you to complete your journey and join us, and the majority of Americans, who support the freedom to marry."
