While these two are currently Hollywood’s “it” couple, they didn’t always start out that way. An interview confirmed that actor Dax Shepard was a bit cautious of Kristen Bell when they first met, based on one thing — Bell just seemed too happy.
(Seriously, we find that to be pretty darn endearing, and we’re so happy that our initial read on Kristen Bell’s personality was, indeed, correct)
Bell has also said that their first meeting was “not electric,” but their love slowly grew over time.
So, it really does seem like opposites (eventually) attracted.
And, based on that, we now have the happy and goofy couple we adore. The reason why we love Kristen and Dax so much? Well, it’s not their Samsung washer commercials — although those do help.
No, we love the fact that they’re so open about the nitty gritty parts of marriage. They’ve openly admitted that they’ve been to marriage counseling, have praised the art of disagreements in marriage, and help remind us that at the end of the day, we’re all just human.
(Seriously, how cute are these two?)
These two just proved that first impressions are sometimes wrong. But for Shepard, Bell’s positive attitude definitely helped steer him in the right direction.
As he’s discussed prior, Shepard battles issues with addiction, once saying that his first loves were Jack Daniel’s and cocaine. So, perhaps Bell’s kindness is exactly what he needed to get himself on a better path.
We’ll always be cheering for these two, no matter what!
