With the U.S. presidential election being held just over a month from now, Hollywood is urging Americans to vote! Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, Robert De Niro, Rami Malek, Zendaya, Samuel L. Jackson, Emma Stone, Kendall Jenner and many other celebrities are rallying together for the #VoteYourFuture campaign, which urges people to cast their ballots on Tuesday, November 8.
Directed by award-winning directors Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, David O. Russell, Tom McCarthy, Joss Whedon and Armando Bo, and in association with Anonymous Content CEO Steve Golin, the PSA features a stream of stars discussing the issues that matter most to them.
“One issue that I care about very deeply is gun control,” says Moby in the three-minute piece. “I sat down with the parents of the children who were killed in Newtown and I saw a level of grief and emptiness and despair that I couldn’t have even imagined beforehand.”
Donald Faison, meanwhile, expresses concern for the future of his four children as police brutality against the black community continues to divide America. “My kids are brown — there’s a possibility that because of the colour of their skin, they’re not gonna live past 25, especially my sons,” the actor shares.
Wilmer Valderrama also gets emotional while addressing the heated debate surrounding immigration and alludes to Donald Trump’s controversial plan to build a 40-foot wall along the U.S-Mexico border. “We take the jobs that people assume don’t exist, and somehow, we’re taking those jobs from people,” he says while struggling to hold back tears.
The #VoteYourFuture PSA also stars Rami Malek, Bella Thorne, Sarah Hyland, Rose McGowan, Stanley Tucci, Laura Dern, Julianna Margulies, Milo Ventimiglia and Edward Norton. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, they are among 100 celebrities who have added their names to the campaign, with each celeb expected to share their individual video on their personal social media feeds.
