Kristen Bell has made a name for herself in recent times for her “truth bombs”.
I received a letter from a nice man who asked if I could write a note to his friends who are getting married. I wrote something congratulatory but then thought “Kristen! Wait! You are an old married woman, shouldn’t you have some wisdom to share?!” After I was finished I realized what I wrote is pretty much the A-Z of how @daxshepard and I keep our relationship healthy. Its worked for us so far, So here ya go. ♥️♥️♥️ #happyvalentinesday
And now Bell, 37, has shared more of her wisdom with a refreshing perspective on the news of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum’s split last week.
Speaking to E!, Bell noted, “We’re not looking at the whole picture when we sort of idolise the relationship. Like those two, that may be a better path for both of them, and they’re both lovely people, and they’re still friends, and that’s okay.”
The Mamamia Out Loud team unpack Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s split. Post continues after.
The mother-of-two’s approach differs greatly from the generally devastated reaction the break-up attracted. The actor pointed out that not all relationships are meant to last forever, and in fact, it’s healthier if some don’t.
“It doesn’t have to be a heartbreak, I guess is what I mean. It could actually be the healthiest thing for both individuals to thrive and it could also be the best example for your kids,” Bell said.
On whether her own marriage to Dax Shepard would ever end, Bell thinks it’s unlikely, and for pretty fair reason:
“We’re in too deep and I like him too much. Even when he’s annoying I really like him. I’m still like, ‘I still wanna be on the porch with you when I’m 80, but I really need you to get out of my face right now.'”
But of course, she is too realistic to say that it couldn’t happen to them, and knows that things can always change.
“It’s OK to feel like, ‘I went through 10 years with you, I love you and now I feel like I want something different and so do you’.”
