There can only be one charming little singing shorty in Hollywood – and it’s Kristen Bell.
Well, that’s according to Kristen Bell.
Dax Shepard revealed to Anna Kendrick in the most recent episode of his podcast “Armchair Expert” Monday that the only person his wife Bell has ever been jealous of is her.
During an emotionally heavy episode, where Kendrick spoke openly about an abusive ex causing her to question her own identity, Sheppard briefly shifted the conversation to give Kendrick “a quick compliment” after 54:30 minutes.
“I knew Kristen [Bell] For fifteen years she’s only been jealous of one person, and that’s been you,” he told Kendrick. ‘I had never seen it. It surprised me.
Sheppard added that Bell has only spoken “nothing but goodwill to everyone” except Kendrick.
“Kristen was like, ‘Who’s that other short person? Oh, so she can sing like that too? I’m already here. Do we have another one?'” Sheppard said.
He added that he asked Bell if he could tell Kendrick this and that Bell signed it in full.
“She kept an eye on you, recognized how brilliant you were, lost some roles to you and slowly processed the whole thing, and has nothing but amazing feelings for you, but you’re the only person who’s ever made her jealous,” added he to it.
Kendrick’s reaction was pure shock. But she also admitted that she always got weird vibes from Bell.
“I actually have a funny thing about your wife that I never thought she liked me,” Kendrick told Shepard. She added that she was always confused by it because she thought Bell was an “angel” and always assumed that most “really sweet angelic blonde girls” like Bell think of her as “weird little troll.”
“She’s so sweet and I feel so rough around the edges,” Kendrick added.
“I have to be very clear with you. She never hated you,” Shepard added later. “I just want to say that, for the record, she never disliked… [she was] jealous, which I had never seen.
Presumably, Sheppard gave Kendrick this compliment during their interview due to the weight of their conversation. During Kendrick’s interview, she shared that she was so deeply involved in an emotionally abusive relationship that she lost a sense of self and believed her “brushy” and “abrasive” personality was driving a wedge in her relationship.
