While giving an interview to aintitcool.com for his latest movie, Hit & Run, Dax Shepard accidentally let it slip out that he is married to Kristen Bell. As I have been saying for at least a year, if not way longer, the couple has been married for a very long time. They might like to say they are waiting for same sex marriage to become legal, but I think that is when they will get around to announcing it. Go check their tax returns and see what their filing status says. Anyway, during the interview Dax talks about how he got financing for the movie.
“I worked for GM for years, and I had certain things that I brought to the table to the investors, which was like, “I’m married to Kristen Bell, we can get her for a bargain. I own this Lincoln, I own a super-expensive, off-road racecar; it’ll be free. And I have a great relationship with GM; I think I can get cars for free from them.” So, that was the cultural capital I brought to it in hopes that someone would finance the movie.”
Unfortunately the interviewer did not ask a followup question, so I guess Dax will just say it was a slip of the tongue or taken out of context. Just think it is interesting that it came out the week they said they were not married. (Thanks Jeremy)
