Sophia Anna Bush (born July 8, 1982) is an American actress, director, spokesperson, and activist.

She carried a sign stating, "I DO support the freedom to marry", and a shirt which had the words "Legalize Gay" across it.

In an interview in January 2012, Bush said about the 2012 Republican candidates: "I will not vote for a candidate who thinks you can 'pray away the gay,' I will not vote for a candidate who thinks that he has more rights to my uterus than I do, I will not vote for a candidate who thinks that it's okay to dump toxic waste in the ocean.

I never expected to be married more than once...because I knew what I was getting into and will always believe in love." In a January 2014 episode of Watch What Happens: Live, she stated: "We were two stupid kids who had no business being in a relationship in the first place.

To all the other co-stars who've worked it out, more power to you." On January 8, 2011, Bush's nine-year-old second cousin, Christina-Taylor Green, was fatally shot in the assassination attempt on Rep. Green was the youngest victim of the massacre, which killed six people.

I believe all men, all women, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic background, you deserve the same rights."
