Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard talk working together for 'Hit & Run' - Video
Kristen Bell and her fiance Dax Shepard got a chance to work together recently on Shepard's film "Hit & Run" and not only did the couple enjoy the experience of being together on set every day, Bell also admitted she found Shepard to be cute as the film's director.
The couple hit the red carpet premiere of the film earlier this month and got cozy with each other during interviews. The two admitted they even gross themselves out with how loving they can be.
"We get that way sometimes. We're in public just nuzzling up and then we're like eww," Bell told OnTheRedCarpet.com.
The couple, who became engaged in 2010 and have been dating for five years, star in "Hit & Run" as a couple on the run. Shepard plays a former getaway driver named Charlie Bronson who jeopardizes his Witness Protection Plan identity in order to help his girlfriend (Bell) get to Los Angeles. A U.S. Marshal and Charlie's former gang chase them on the road.
While the two noted there is "geriatric nudity" in the movie, Bell said she adored Shepard as a director.
"I mean I thought this was cute by itself, but then to see him in the director's chair it was overwhelming," she said.
Shepard wrote the film and co-directed the movie with David Palmer. The movie also stars Kristin Chenoweth, Bradley Cooper, Beau Bridges, Michael Rosenbaum and Tom Arnold.
Shepard, who joked early on in the interview that Bell was a diva, said that being able to work with Bell everyday was "heaven." Shepard works on the TV series "Parenthood" while Bell stars on the Showtime series "House of Lies."
"We both have really full time jobs with our respective TV shows so typically we're away from each other 14 hours a day doing different things," Shepard said. "So to wake up every morning and get in the same car and go do the same thing was, you know, heaven for us."
"Hit & Run" hit theaters on August 22. Check out the trailer below.
