Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell: We'll get married when our gay friends can

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."

Scarlett Johansson on mom's influence

Scarlett Johansson received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Wednesday, and the 27-year-old actress says she has her mom to thank for her success.

"One of the most important things [my mom] did growing up was that she always said to me that I could do whatever I wanted as long as I really, really wanted it," Johansson told CNN. "It allowed me to constantly sort of reassess what my priorities were and it grounded me in a way, and allowed me to come back to square one and say, 'What am I doing here, and why am I doing it?'"

It's a lesson Johansson thinks all kids should learn, "no matter what," she said. "That they should be doing something because they're passionate about it and for no other reason.”
