Dax Shepard Talks Wife Kristen Bell’s Pool Gloves and the Hilarious Misunderstanding He Had About Her Breasts


Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are easily one of my favorite couples in Hollywood. They’re hilarious, honest, down-to-earth and are truly not afraid to tell all.

Dax recently shared a picture of Kristen in the pool wearing a pair of “pool gloves,” saying, “My bride wears gloves in the pool because she hates the feeling of pruney fingertips on skin.”

He later appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” where Jimmy, of course, asked about the gloves— and Dax explained his wife’s bizarre phobia. “I’ve been with her for 11 years and I’ve always been told that she just doesn’t like going in the pool— so she’ll take the kids and just sit in a lawn chair or whatever,” he said. “The heat wave was so dramatic, she had to get in the pool.”

He then said she proclaimed, “I have to go get my pool gloves!” and, lo and behold, she has a special pair specifically made for wearing in the pool. “Weirder to me than her even having this proclivity is that someone is manufacturing pool gloves!”

He then went on to share a hilarious story about a “huge misunderstanding” he and Kristen had early in their relationship— about her breasts. He shared that they were in a hot tub and she thought he was staring at her chest. So, naturally, she said, “What are you looking at my fake t***s?”

From then on out, he believed she had had a breast augmentation. It wasn’t until years later she told him she was joking. Oh, marriage.
