Actress Cybill Shepherd has recorded a video for the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Americans for Marriage Equality campaign.

“Why would the government think that I am more deserving than a gay or lesbian couple? Just because I'm straight? That doesn't make any sense,” Shepherd says in the 45-second video released Wednesday.

“I believe we are all equal in the eyes of the law. And therefore, we all deserve marriage equality.”

The 62-year-old actress played Phyllis Kroll in the groundbreaking lesbian drama The L Word.
