Dax Shepard hopes to get some extra wiggle room when he’s in the air!
The armchair expert podcast host, 47, shared a photo of him and actress Joy Bryant appearing to fly Southwest Airlines — revealing their sneaky attempt to keep the seat between them clear and free.
“@joybeezy and me trying to pretend the middle seat was already taken 😂😂😂😂😂,” Shepard captioned an Instagram photo of him and his former parenting costar in which he placed a hat over his hand to pretend the seat was already taken.
Shepard’s wife, Kristen Bell, teased her husband in the comment section of his post, writing, “Your arm is the size of a normal thin person, so this could actually work.”
He replied, “Oh how flatter you are ❤️❤️❤️.”

The Frozen star posted a video to Instagram showing Shepard in the garden to the tune of Color Me Badd’s “I Wanna Sex You Up.”
