Dax Shepard regularly refers to long-term fiancé Kristen Bell as his wife on Twitter, despite the two of them pulling a “Brangelina” and vowing to stave off marriage until all same sex couples can legally get married, but with all this wifey talk on Twitter we can’t help but wonder if these two secretly got married.
“No, we would be very hypocritical if we were secretly married after being so openly against it,” Dax tells Hollyscoop at the junket for the couple’s new movie Hit and Run.
When we asked about the couple’s ring-finger situation, they clearly told us “No,” they aren’t married.
So what’s the deal with all the wife talk on Dax’s Twitter account?
“I’m allowed to say whatever words I want in life,” says Dax.
“He can call me bozo,” jokes Kristin
This real-life couple plays an on-screen couple in Hit And Run a film written by, directed by and starring both Dax and Kristen about a former getaway driver Charlie Bronson who jeopardizes his Witness Protection Plan identity in order to help his girlfriend get to Los Angeles.
“You should see this movie because it’s got a lot of life lessons, it’s got a lot of action, it’s got a real life love story and it’s got overall a lot of comedy,” says Kristen, “All of the car chases are real, all of the stunts are real and we do all of the stunt driving and you’re not going to get that in any other movie ever.”
Hit and Run opens in theaters August 22.
