Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard: "We're Not Having a Wedding"

The actress says she and her fiance are still getting married -- they're just not interested in planning a big party

Kristen Bell is not interested in planning any type of wedding extravaganza. The actress, who became engaged to Dax Shepard in late 2009, says they plan to become husband and wife surrounded by very little hoopla.

"We're just not having a wedding, so there's no story to report there," she announced at the FriendFactor benefit in N.Y.C. on Tuesday. "I mean, we're still getting married, but we're going to do it whenever we feel like it."

"The fact that he asked me to marry him is of a little more importance than me planning a party," Bell, 30, added.

But don't think that the Scream 4 actress' lack of wedding enthusiasm has anything to do with how she feels about Shepard, 36. Bell, who already refers to the Parenthood actor as her "husband", says her man is the light of her life and he knows exactly how to lift her up when she's feeling down.

"He constantly keeps me laughing: when I'm sad, mad, frustrated, annoyed. Regardless of what it is he can lighten the mood. He'll do anything that the mood requires," she gushed. "I can't get frustrated and that is a very powerful weapon. Comedy is a very powerful weapon. He's so funny that it's overwhelming."

"I really don't have bad days, you know what I mean?" Bell continued. "Even if it's me being frustrated, he'll make a joke about me and it'll be so genuinely funny that I have to laugh."
