fell head over heels in love on his first date with future wife Lauren Parsekian.
So head over heels that they almost ended up getting married in Vegas that night.
We "jumped into a cab and said, 'Take us to the nearest chapel. We're getting married,' " the Need for Speed
star reveals in an interview in the April issue of ELLE
"The Little White Chapel ended up being closed," he continues. "We probably would have gone through with it. It would have been a pretty funny story. But I'm happy we got married when we did – a year later."
The couple, who met at the Coachella music festival, tied the knot
in a Parisian-themed wedding last May.
As their first anniversary approaches, the honeymoon continues. "I'm a hopeless romantic," the Breaking Bad
star, 34, admits, adding that he and Parsekian have never had a fight.
"People get in fights because they don't communicate, because you don't want to hurt the other person. If you do
want to hurt the other person, then shame on you – you're an a––hole," he says. "My wife and I do not argue. We communicate. We talk. But we've never fought in our entire relationship."
