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 The Advocate.

“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.
