Cybill Shepherd works with her daughter on ‘The L Word’. Both play lesbians, and ignore each other’s love scenes.

Liberal icon and celebrated actress Cybill Shepherd is working closely on the set of The L Word with her daughter Clementine Ford. Cybill plays Clementine’s mom on the show.

The 28-year-old Clementine says that [although she and Cybill are close] she avoids Cybill’s lesbian love scenes on the show. Telling Entertainment Tonight that she sometimes watches The L Word with her eyes closed – Clementine says, “there are certain things you don’t want to see. I’ll look anywhere around but at the TV…”

Shepherd has been a friend of the lesbian and gay community for decades. Always a proponent of civil rights such as pro-choice, Cybill spoke up about same-sex unions in a Spring 2000 interview with Larry King,

“I think to infringe on anybody’s civil rights is a crime, and I absolutely believe they (lesbians and gays) should have the right to marry. I think it’s none of the government’s business, frankly.”
