Hollywood is rallying behind Bruce Jenner who confirmed during an interview with Diane Sawyer that “for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.”
During Friday night’s Race to Erase MS event, HipHollywood caught up with several celebrities who praised Jenner for sharing his journey on national television.
“Groundbreaking for someone of his ilk. A decathlon champion, somebody who’s been living life in the public life … we have to live our life with acceptance, not tolerance,” The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Vanderpump told us. “He should be celebrated not criticized because there is too many people struggling, there’s a high rate of suicide.”
The LGBT supporter continued, “It’s time for America and the world to understand, people don’t choose this path. They are born this way.”
Pooch Hall also chimed in, telling HipHollywood, “To each it’s own. Happiness is the key to ones life and success and if that’s what makes him happy and as long as his family supports him, rock on Bruce … I support that man and I wish him and his family well.”
“I think we have to have love and compassion for each other and let people be who they are,” Carmen Electra told HipHollywood. “You only live once and if you have your health you should be able to be who you are if you’re a good person and not hurting anyone.”
Electra went not to say that it is very brave for Bruce to speak up. “That’s huge,” she explained.
