Celebs are speaking out in support of equal marriage rights. The list includes Aisha Tyler who posed for the NOH8 campaign, Daniel Radcliffe, and the stars who voiced their support after California’s Prop 8 was ruled unconstitutional.

Kristen Bell has now joined the group of celebrities lending their voices to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). The HRC is a nonprofit working toward equal rights for LGBT Americans. Bell feels that not allowing someone to marry who they love “makes no sense.” She says, “It breaks my heart to know that millions of gay Americans still can’t marry the one they love, and I can,” according to Huffington Post.

HRC president Joe Solmonese adds, “Every day committed and loving gay and lesbian couples face the unfair reality that marriage is out of the question for them. Kristen Bell, like a majority of Americans, recognizes the injustice of this discrimination, and the harm it inflicts on families across the country.”

Bell and her fiance, and fellow actor, Dax Shepard both feel strongly about marriage equality and have agreed to hold off on their own wedding. “The reason we’re not rushing to get married is because I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my best friends. Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We’re just standing up for what we believe in,” said Bell.

Bell’s video that she recorded for HRC is part of their “Americans for Marriage Equality” PSA campaign. Other videos feature John Leguizamo, Jason Mraz and Mo’Nique. Watch Bell’s video below!
