oconnell.jpgIt’s been less than a month since they were married and already Jerry O’Connell is falling into line with his wife’s green values. Ugly Betty star Rebecca Romijn married O’Connell in July and says she didn’t turn him green, but thinks she might have started the fire under his butt. From the article,

“‘I drive a Prius and get angry if people don’t recycle. The little lady has got me living the Bay Area lifestyle,’ commented O’Connell. Later, when asked to confirm her husband’s conversion to Green, Romijn laughed. ‘Yeah, he’s driving my Prius,’ Romijn says. ‘Hey, at least he’s driving a Prius. My mom bought us a purified water system for our wedding present and Jerry decided to put solar panels in.’”

Ironically, O’Connell is also staring in a upcoming series this fall called Carpoolers. We have no idea if the show’s title caused him to think more carefully about this transportation options — but we hope the premise catches on with other Americans. So far, the reviews point to this one running low on gas.
