Anne Hathaway and husband Adam Shulman
Anne Hathaway is giving the money made from her wedding photos to charity.
The newlywed actress - who wed long-term boyfriend Adam Shulman in Big Sur, California on September 30 - is donating a portion of the proceeds made from her wedding pictures to non-profits advocating for same sex marriage, according to FreedomToMarry.org.
The 29-year-old is said to be donating the rest of the profits to a number of other charities including the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children's Research and The Girl Effect.
The Les MisÃ©rables star, who received an award from the Human Rights Campaign in 2008, worked directly with Freedom to Marry's National Engagement Party, helping to raise $500,000 for the 'Win More States Fund'.
She previously opened up about growing up with a gay brother.
She said: 'In my household, being gay was, and is, no big deal. When my brother came out, we hugged him, said we loved him, and that was that.'
The actress - who recently signed on to star in the romantic comedy 'The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie' - is currently in France on honeymoon with her new husband.
The couple - who cancelled their original trip to Thailand due to bad weather - began their holiday in London and are also set to explore Morocco during their romantic getaway.
