London: Actress Anne Hathaway has decided to donate the money she received for selling her wedding photographs to her favourite charities.

The 29-year-old walked down the aisle with her fiance Adam Shulman last month and sold several pictures of their big day to selected media outlets, reported Daily Star.

The profits raised from the sale will go to good causes, including Freedom to Marry, which campaigns for gay couples to have the right to wed across the US.

Hathaway has backed the legalisation of same-sex marriage since revealing in 2008 that her brother is gay.

The money will also be split between the American Cancer Society, St Jude Children`s Research Hospital, and The Girl Effect, which helps impoverished young women.
