Celebs React to Prop 8 Being Overturned

Hollywood is celebrating! The controversial Proposition 8, which banned gay marriages in California, has been overturned by Federal Court Judge Vaughn Walker in San Francisco, who declared it unconstitutional.

The ruling "affirms the full legal protections and safeguards I believe everyone deserves," California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told the Los Angeles Times.

Almost immediately, celebs took their Twitter accounts to express their heartfelt sentiments.
