Arnold Schwarzenegger discusses Prop 8 ruling on 'Tonight Show'
Arnold Schwarzenegger has seemingly always made his appearances on "The Tonight Show wit
h Jay Leno" newsworthy and Tuesday night was no different.
While Hollywood notables Drew Barrymore, Kathy "Call me 'Norma Gay'" Griffin, Pete Wentz, blink-182's Mark Hoppus, "The Veronicas" Lisa, Sophia Bush, Emmy Rossum, Kelly Osbourne, "Dollhouse's" Eliza Dushku and George Takei were protesting the California Supreme Court's ruling on the validity of Proposition 8 in West Hollywood, the Governator was speaking out about the decision across town in Burbank during the final week of Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" tenure.
Not necessarily the loudest critic of the proposition against gay marriage, Schwarzenegger admitted he voted against it and said that he believes "eventually it will be overturned."
The proposition passed with 52% of the vote in November, invalidating a ruling the California Supreme Court made six months earlier. During that period, 18,000 gay marriages were performed. Supporters of gay marriage appealed the proposition, but the court upheld the election results while still keeping the gay marriages already performed intact. Both sides expect this fight to go back to the polls in 2010 or 2012. Without a Presidential election to distract contributors, supporters of gay marriage to expect even more help from the gay-friendly Hollywood community.
A regular fixture on "The Tonight Show" during Leno's tenure, Schwarzenegger famously announced his candidacy for Governor on the show. Leno has scheduled a number of his favorite regulars during his final week including Mel Gibson Monday night, Wanda Sykes on Wednesday, Billy Crystal on Friday and his replacement, Conan O'Brien, on Friday.
Leno will return to NBC in the fall with a nightly 10 PM comedy show.
