Today marked a historic victory for marriage equality when the Supreme Court struck down DOMA, an event many in Hollywood and around the country have hoped for for years. As soon as the decision was announced, celebrities took to Twitter to express their support.

Read our report on the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act at MTV News.

Among the thousands of people sharing their celebrations on Twitter, a handful of celebrity accounts, including some predominant members of the LGBT community, tweeted messages of gratitude, and we've rounded up some of our favorites after the jump!

Sometimes it's hard to remember that a lot of today's A-list celebrities began acting when they were young kids. Leonardo DiCaprio played Luke on the hit show "Growing Pains" and had an incredible performance in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape." Similarly, Kirsten Dunst landed a key role in "Interview with the Vampire" before breaking out in the biz. Today we were reminded of one of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's first roles when Leonard Nimoy posted an old photograph. Talk about throwback!

The photo shows Nimoy directing JGL and Patricia Arquette in "Holy Matrimony," a film following a Hutterite boy who, following his brother's death, must marry his wife—an outsider to his Anabaptist community. Maybe we'll add this movie to our Sick Day Stash.

He's baaaaaaaaaack. No, we're not talking about Mr. Schwarzenegger. We're talking about Jon Favreau, of course. He's making his return to Marvel for "Iron Man 3"! While he won't be directing the three-quel, he's reprising his role as Happy Hogan, Tony Stark's bodyguard and side-kick.

The story line for the third film is currently being kept under wraps, so we're not certain how large his part will be. He appeared in the first film for a cameo with a more fleshed out part in the second movie—perhaps he'll be essential to the third?

I'll admit it: I'm a bit heartbroken by the new "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" release date. In case you're late to the news, the second "G.I. Joe" flick has been pushed back from its original June 29 release date, now scheduled to arrive on land, sea and air on March 29, 2013. That's a full nine months later than it was supposed to hit. It's tough news to swallow for "Joe" fans far and wide, but leading man Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is staying positive.


Johnson took to Twitter to confirm the news of the new "Joe" release date, writing: "Commitment to make GI JOE a massive world event just got bigger. New release 3/29/13. Rock + Ass kickins + 3D = #AwwwwS---." He also confirmed reports that the film's planned 3-D conversion will require reshoots; according to Johnson, the Paramount team is "designing new scenes to enhance 3D."

If you haven't noticed, the MTV Movies team is quite excited to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis' film "Looper." Between an awesome movie poster and trailer commentary from the director himself, Rian Johnson, our anticipation keeps building.

The film focuses on the criminal use of time-travel technology to send targets back to the past where they're taken out by assassins called Loopers. These murderers live an extravagant lifestyle with the understanding that one day they'll be sent back through time and killed themselves, in order to close the loop. Looper JGL's day is up when his future self is sent back in time and manages to escape his grasp. Willis plays the older version of JGL's character and recently told Esquire that the film is "better than anything [he's] ever done."

When the highly-anticipated "Lost" series finale hit our small screens back in 2010, it left a lot of questions unanswered and had a lot of viewers going, "Huh?" Fans felt like they were promised a big event, something emotional and moving—which it was—with an intelligent twist that would satiate our thirst for answers and let us finally sleep at night.

What we ended up getting felt like a neat bow tied too tight forcing us to be satisfied. Some were glad that the characters received a happy ending, but others wanted more. "Lost" writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof sat down with The Verge to discuss the finale recently and said the viewer reaction left him sad and created stress in his life.

America's favorite anchormen have returned to once again get classy, down scotch and make us all double over in laughter. Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner reprise their roles in two new teaser trailers to give fans a taste of what we can expect in "Anchorman: The Legend Continues."

The Funny or Die video opens with a voiceover saying, "In the age when the dinosaurs' roar greeted the dawn and apes rode the winged horse across the valley of Eli, there was a lone stranger who offered comfort, wisdom and overly sexual neck massages. It was said that he would one day return. That day has come."

That lone stranger is, of course, Ron Burgundy. "Hey America, did you miss my hot breath in your ear?" he says.

There's no gain without the pain, right? Or at least that's what Michael Bay's latest project "Pain and Gain" tells us. Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, is Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson and judging by his past career in WWE—and the fact that every single one of his muscles is probably the size of our head—he's someone we would not want to cross. Especially since one of the set photos shows him cooking a hand on a grill. Better to stay on his safe, non-Hulk-like side, no?

But that set photo is one of the last we'll see as The Rock just announced he wrapped filming in Miami today. "Pain and Gain" is a black comedy that follows a pair of bodybuilders who find themselves in an extortion ring and kidnapping plot that spirals way out of control.

The music industry lost a powerful voice today. The "Queen of Disco," Donna Summer, passed away this morning in Florida after a long battle with cancer. The five-time Grammy winner was known for her disco anthems "Last Dance," "Hot Stuff," "I Feel Love" and "Love to Love You Baby." The stars took to Twitter to mourn the legendary artist's death, including "Avengers" star Clark Gregg.

With lyrics reading, "When you're laying so close to me/There's no place I'd rather you be than with me/I love to love you, baby/Do it to me again and again," we can understand why Gregg feels that way. With a soulful voice Summer crooned the lyrics among whispers and moans in the background to create a song that has the power to make any man blush.

Today marks the beginning of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival! As actors, directors and filmmakers head to France over the next two weeks, certain stars are already making their splash. For instance, Sacha Baron Cohen (in character as Admiral General Aladeen) hosted a press conference in Croisette, Cannes' famous promenade, to promote "Dictator." Immediately following he hoisted himself on a camel—albeit with a struggle—and rode away for some shopping. Of course he did.

Also in attendance is Ewan McGregor, who's acting as a judge on the Cannes jury alongside fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier, french actress Emmanuelle Devos and Diane Kruger among others. The festival opens with the Wes Anderson film, "Moonrise Kingdom."
