For no reason other than an overly emotional response to another Hollywood couple calling it quits, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been on a lot of people’s hearts and minds the past couple of weeks.
Recently, just to check-in on one of America’s favorite couples, POPSugar sat down with Kristen to ask some questions.
First she shared that she and Dax choose to be happy and work on their relationship, “It still takes a lot of work, but we are choosing to be this happy because the other choice is, what, choosing to be unhappy? No thanks.”
But, things took a turn when she revealed that once, long ago, Dax dumped her. “We were dating for about three months, and I already knew that I was in love with him and he was hesitant because he was still dating other people. He sat me down and said, ‘I can’t have this right now. I think you’re wonderful, but I am still dating other people.’ And then I, like, liquefied and fell to the ground, but I felt incredibly respected that he had the balls to tell me we weren’t in the same place.”
Fortunately, it only took Dax 4 days to realize he had made a mistake. “He called me and he was like, ‘I don’t know what I was thinking. I was dating someone else but they’re just not as interesting as you, and I don’t know what I’m doing,’ and he came back. But I still always remind him of when he broke up with me.”
