The starring couple of this week's "Hit and Run," Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, have yet to say "I do" after a two-year engagement. But the pair recently told CNN that they do want to get married - it's just that they're intent on waiting to tie the knot when their gay friends have that right, too.
“I don't believe in standing in the way of love, and I want to stand up for that right," Bell, 32, said. "And that's what it is. If someone wants to commit their life to another person, why would I not bolster that argument?”
Plus, her fiancé added, throwing a wedding before then "would just be tacky."
Shepard, 37, told CNN that taking a stance on gay marriage is by no means a way to put off a wedding.
"Do you know what this thing costs?" Shepard asked, holding up Bell's engagement ring. "This is more commitment than getting a tattoo! Like ... we own this thing!"
So no, he went on, it's not that they're "punishing America by not getting married. We're not going to have a party when half of our friends ... can't do that thing we're doing. We're not going to ask them to come celebrate a right they don't have. That's just tacky! Forget like anything else, it's like really tacky for us.”
And when they do say their vows, there's a chance they might try and coerce "Savages" star Taylor Kitsch to join them at the altar. Watch the video below to find out why.
