Ashlee and Pete have been raking in the publicity these past few weeks, and now the newly engaged pair have been named one of People's Most Beautiful Couples of the Year. It's a pretty awesome title if you consider the competition, and the rockin' twosome were more than happy to gush about each other in an interview for the big issue. Here are a few of the outtakes that didn't make it into print:
On their instant attraction:
Ashlee Simpson: "The first day that we met we were attracted to each other."
Pete Wentz: "We were dating other people [but] we were actually good. Neither one of us did anything."
AS: "Yeah, we were good."
PW: "I was into everything about her."
AS: "He's a cutie, of course, and he has an awesome personality and kind of brings out the best of me, and I knew that even before we were dating. There was just like an awesome connection we had."
To see what else Pete and Ash had to say about being high maintenance and fashion, just read more.
- On who is more high maintenance:
PW: "I set a point to be high maintenance a couple of years ago."
AS: "I would say if there's one of us that was more [high maintenance], it would be me."
PW: "But at the same time, if she comes out on tour with me, she doesn't have a makeup artist."
AS: "I learned to pack his bags and my bags."
PW: "She's kind of like a super-assistant that you can have sex with."
- On fashion:
PW: "It's kind of like college where [her outfits are] on a grading system where I'll be like, 'That's an A or B,' and I'm kind of on a pass/fail system with her.'"
AS: "He has great clothes. If I want to go for, like, a dress, you'll dress a little bit nicer that day or something."
PW:" I just try to accent whatever she has. I do. When we were getting styled for this [PEOPLE shoot] she had all these really cool things and then I was just kind of like, 'I'm like the whipped cream. The sundae's not good without whipped cream!' That's okay. I really don't mind being the whipped cream."
