Ellen DeGeneres – who celebrates her 2nd wedding anniversary with Portia de Rossi this month, having married the Arrested Development star before the Prop 8 law came into place in November 2008 – tweeted her excitement at the news:
“This just in: equality won!” said Ellen (@TheEllenShow), while Portia (who says she can't keep up with Twitter!) released a statement saying she was "ecstatic" at the news.
The Governor of California, aka Terminator and Expendables star Arnold Schwarzenegger (@schwarzenegger), chimed in, as did Pink (@Pink), Ricky Martin (@Ricky_Martin), Kelly Osbourne (@MissKellyO), Samantha Ronson (@SamanthaRonson), Christina Applegate (@1capplegate) and more.
One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush (@sophiabush) tweeted: "A MAJOR step forward. Everyone deserves the right to love whomever they choose. I am proud to be from Cali again!" while Rose McGowan (@rosemcgowan) said she was looking forward to being a flower girl soon!
