Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon says Brad Pitt's recent $100,000 donation to fight a gay marriage ban is "inspiring."

"I think it's great," the actress said Thursday at a DVD premiere party for the Sex and the City movie in New York.

Nixon, who has said she'd marry her longtime girlfriend Christine Marinoni if gay marriage were legal in New York, applauded Pitt's recent donation to fight Proposition 8 – a ballot initiative that, if passed, would make same-sex marriages illegal in California.

"I think the way Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie always give their money, and the things they give it to, and the enormous amounts they give of it is just incredibly commendable," Nixon, 42, adds. "I think they inspire other people to give as well."

On a more light-hearted note, Nixon confesses that for a Sex and the City sequel, "I'd want Miranda to go with Carrie, Samantha, and Charlotte on a madcap adventure!"
