Kristin Chenoweth Speaks Out For Gay Marriage As Part Of HRC's 'Americans For Marriage Equality' Effort

Posted: Updated:

Tony and Emmy-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth is the latest celebrity to join the Human Rights Campaign's Americans for Marriage Equality effort.

"Look, the bottom line is that regardless of how you were made or who you love, you should be able to get married if you want to get married," the star of "Wicked" and "Pushing Daisies" says in the new clip. "I truly believe it's that simple."

Chenoweth follows Anthony Bourdain, Tony Hawk and Susan Sarandon in joining the HRC campaign. The actress, who is slated to return to Broadway in "On the Twentieth Century" next year, has previously spoken out on behalf of the LGBT community.

"If it was a sin to be short, what would I do? Well, I'd be right on the hell bus," she told Piers Morgan. "I don't believe God makes mistakes, and that includes a person's sexuality."

In 2013, she also offered her gay fans a heartwarming Valentine's Day wish on Twitter.
