Chris Hemsworth and Margot Robbie Advocate for Marriage Equality in Australia: 'LOVE IS LOVE'
As Australians prepare to vote for the legalization of same-sex marriage, two of the country’s biggest stars are speaking out in support of equality.
In an impassioned Instagram post on Wednesday, Chris Hemsworth encouraged Australians to “check and update” their electoral details within the next 24 hours so that they will be eligible to vote in the upcoming elections.
“Dear open minded, free speaking, laid back, life loving Aussies,” Hemsworth, 34, said. “Marriage is about love and commitment and, in a country based on equal citizenship, it should be available to everyone! Vote now for marriage equality.”
Margot Robbie shared a similar message on her Instagram account.
“LOVE IS LOVE,” the 27-year-old Suicide Squad star wrote, captioning a shot of herself dressed in heart-shaped glasses and a rainbow-colored sweater. “Aussie’s living overseas like me, register to vote here: http://www.aec.gov.au/enrol/ before August 24th #marriageequality#australia.”
