Kristen Bell has become the latest celeb to publicly announce that she won’t marry her fiancé, Parenthood’s Dax Shepard, until everyone — especially her gay pals — can legally get married.
She tells The Advocate:
I get a ton of questions about when Dax and I are getting married. I usually blow them off because it’s nobody’s business. To be honest with you — and this is the first time I’ve ever said this to a journalist, but it feels like the perfect time and place — 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. That’s why we’ve been so hesitant. 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. Period.
Dammit, now there’ll never be a Veronica Mars movie — at least not if One Million Moms have anything to say about it! But is the House of Lies star’s ultra-liberal sentiment genuine, or is she just looking for any excuse not to get tied down to d-baggy Dax Shepard?
Among the other interview highlights, Bell reveals how she keeps in touch with her Burlesque costar Cher: “She texts me at random times, maybe once a month. She loves to text. She usually texts me, ‘Hey, bitch. XO, Me.’” Classic.
