House of Lies star Kristen Bell
is holding off on plans to wed fiance Dax Shepard until gay marriage
is legalized in the United States.
The 31-year-old Bell and comedian
Shepard, 37, have been engaged since 2009.
“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,” Bell told gay glossy
“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,” she added.
Bell also talked about her Heroes
co-star Zachary Quinto, who
announced he's gay last year.
“He has known exactly who he is since
the day I met him,” Bell said.
Previously, actors Brad Pitt and
Angelina Jolie announced they were waiting for marriage equality
before tying the knot.
