The relationship between Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard is one that often elicits labels like:
“COUPLE PROVE LOVE IS NOT DEAD” or,
“KRISTEN AND DAX SHOW LOVE IS REAL IN HOLLYWOOD.”
Behind the CAPITALISED, glossy headlines on their relationship, it is like any other – it needs work.
After the honeymoon period ends, it needs constant refreshing. It has the rough patches, the normal days, and then the days where you think, “Oh, yes, this is worth it”.
In an honest interview, Bell spoke about how fragile their relationship became because of the drama she invoked.
Speaking to Harry Connick Jr on his talk show, the 37-year-old said that the couple didn’t stop fighting at the beginning of their relationship.
“When we first met, we fell madly in love and I love the dramatic exit,” Bell said.
“We’d get in a fight because we’d fight a lot, and I’d yell something and then slam the bedroom door, then I’d slam the front door, then I’d get in my car and then I’d skid out the driveway and I would sit around the corner in my car and it felt so good and I realized how incredibly toxic it was only after he pointed it out.”
