Kristen Bell and fiancee Dax Shepard
are holding off on plans to marry until gay marriage is legalized in
The actors have been engaged since
In an appearance on Larry King Now
to pitch their upcoming film Hit & Run, the couple
reiterated that the wedding is currently on hold.
On the program, King noted that a
federal appeals court had ruled the state's 2008 voter-approved gay
marriage ban, Prop 8, unconstitutional.
“Once it's official and everybody
stops appealing it … we'll get married,” Bell said. “I'll feel
more comfortable having a party or whatever we have, if anything,
inviting half of our friends that are homosexual … It's just kind
of, I think, a little bit rude to invite everyone to a party of a
right that not everybody holds,” Bell said.
“My analogy is if we were at this age
in the sixties and I had a birthday party and half our friends were
black, I wouldn't have the birthday party at the front of the bus,”
Shepard explained. “That would not be cool.”
