Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard might be a picture-perfect couple on social media, but the Frozen II actress wants everyone to know that they’re as real as it can get. Bell spoke candidly about a recent fight she had with her husband and the details are pretty explosive.
The 39-year-old actress was a guest on Tuesday’s episode of the Life Is Short with Justin Long podcast. There, she discussed how she and Shepard, like any normal couple, have bad days between them.
The Good Place star then went on to admit that the two “…do fight, we do go to therapy, we dislike each other a lot sometimes” before launching into a massive argument she had with Shepard.
“We had this pretty incredible fight recently. Incredible. I mean like top of the lungs screaming.”
Like any other misunderstanding between couples, it started out with a fairly small thing. Bell told Long that she was on her way to work when she left a note for Shepard asking him to do a couple of chores.
“I left a note and I was like, ‘Hey dad! Would you mind taking the two towels in the dryer and folding them’ and then like one other thing.” While these were things that most people would assume she won’t have a problem doing herself, Bell explained that house chores, working and “mom stuff” started to get overwhelming at that point.
Later on, the two tried to talk things out before going to bed. But despite their best efforts to remain calm, the actress revealed that the two “blacked out” into a screaming match and they proceeded to not talk to each other for three days.
So how did they work things through? “I didn’t get an apology, but I got a dog!” the actress said.
