Anne Hathaway tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Adam Shulman last month in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Big Sur, California.

But The Dark Knight Rises actress is mindful of those in the gay community who do not have the same opportunity to wed the ones they love so she is going to donate some of the proceeds from the sale of her wedding pictures to support non-profits advocating for same-sex couples.

Freedomtomarry.org reports that their organization will be one of the recipients of funds from the 29-year-old Hollywood star.

Profits will also be split between the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and The Girl Effect.

Anne has long been a support of the LGBT community and in 2008 she was awarded the Human Rights Campaign's Ally Award and shared why the issue is so important to her.

"In my household, being gay was, and is, no big deal," she said. "When my brother came out, we hugged him, said we loved him, and that was that."

"I don't consider myself just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family.

"And so, I'm doing what we should all do with our families – I'm loving you, I support you, I completely accept you as you are, as I hope you do me, and if anyone tries to hurt you, I'm going to give them hell."
