This is when Dax Shepard almost asked Anna Faris out on a date

But what would their celebrity couple name be? Dax Shepard — who is now happily married to Kristen Bell — was once thisclose to asking Anna Faris out on a date back in 2005. The Parenthood alum revealed his plans to Faris herself during her podcast on Monday, March 26.

“I saw Just Friends and was like, ‘You are so talented’ and you and I sat next to each other during a premiere,” he said.

The seat buddies struck up a conversation with “open-ended questions,” he added. “[I thought] ‘I would definitely like to take this person on a date,'” he said. “Then from my point of view, that door was shut. It was like a dead-bolt door.”

Faris laughed, recalling why that might have been the case. “I think my first husband [Ben Indra] may have been sitting to the right of me.”
