#ImWithHer: Jamie Lee Curtis, Shonda Rhimes among celebs backing Hillary Clinton

In a new video accompanied by the hashtag #ImWithHer, 17 celebrity women express their support for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Published Monday morning on the public Facebook page of Lena Dunham, the "Girls" actress is joined by more than a dozen other stars in backing Clinton's campaign.

Jamie Lee Curtis opens the video, whose clips appear to be filmed by each of the participating entertainers, by proclaiming, "I want my president of the United States to make decisions on my behalf — based on her experience, her command, her intelligence, and from her big, warm, embracing, feminine heart."

In addition to Curtis and Dunham, the 2-minute video features appearances and endorsements from Amber Tamblyn, Rosie O'Donnell, Amy Poehler, Jemima Kirke, Katy Perry, Retta, Gina Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen, Tracy Anderson, Shonda Rhimes, Constance Wu, Zoe Kazan, Shannon Woodward, Katie Lowes and Uzo Aduba. Most are heard echoing a slogan embraced by Clinton supporters: "I'm with her."

Rhimes, whose executive-producing credits range from "Grey's Anatomy" and "How to Get Away with Murder," considered her family's future while offering her endorsement. "I'm with her because I want to maintain my freedoms," Rhimes says. "I'm with her because I want my daughters to grow up safe. And I'm with her because every child in this country deserves an equal shot at the American Dream."

Rodriguez, who won a Golden Globe Award for her work on The CW's "Jane the Virgin," says she's with Clinton "because she is fighting for immigration reform and fighting to keep our families together — and that is the reason why, Latinos, we need to vote."

Fitness guru Tracy Anderson offered her support because "even though I love what I do, I'm sick of working double-time just to get what bros get."

Clinton's own public Facebook page shared Dunham's video Monday afternoon. Part of that caption reads, "Some women you might recognize say why they're with Hillary — share your reason in the comments."

Dunham, who interviewed Clinton for Dunham's digital newsletter last year, also posted a segment of the new video to her Instagram account. The related caption reads, "Some amazing women for an amazing woman."

Clinton isn't the only candidate embracing A-list affirmation. According to the website of Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, his celebrity supporters include Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo, David Crosby, Juliette Lewis, Patton Oswalt and Margaret Cho.

Republicans also have their share of celebrity support. Ted Cruz recently appeared to go on a duck hunt with "Duck Dynasty'" star Phil Robertson and earned his endorsement along the way. And in a Rolling Stone article published Monday, Kid Rock said he's "digging [Republican front-runner Donald] Trump."
