Kristen Bell is holding out on tying the knot until gay marriage is legal, much like her A-lister counterparts Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have professed in the past.

Bell, 31, did an interview recently with The Advocate where she talked about her relationship with Dax Shepard and the reason why the two haven’t gotten married, how proud she is of her good friend Zachary Quinto coming out of the closet, and why she couldn’t make the switch to dating women.

“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. That’s why we’ve been so hesitant,” she said.

“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.”

Last October Heroes star Zachary Quinto professed he is gay during an interview with New York Magazine.

“Zach came out when he was ready, he did it for his own very specific reasons, and I’m wildly proud of him,” Bell said.

“He didn’t come to me for counsel about that, but Zachary needs no encouragement from anyone. He has known exactly who he is since the day I met him… Zach has always been sexy to me, even though I knew he was never interested in me. It doesn’t make him any less sexy, onscreen or off.”

Bell starred in the gay cult hit Burlesque in 2010 with Christina Aguilera and Cher and calls it a “love letter to the gay community.”

“I love that it’s become a guilty pleasure, especially among gay people. Of course, Christina Aguilera and Cher are also very vocal in their support of the gay community, so we’re all over the moon that they’ve celebrated the movie. Truth be told, it was really a love letter to the gay community in many ways,” she said.

“Well, the women on that film were just so beautiful. Thank God for Dax Shepard. Unfortunately for all the women in America, he’s the most charming, adorable human walking the planet, so I couldn’t make the switch.”
