Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard don’t want people to think their romance is “easy”.
The couple – who have been married since 2013 – are known for being open about their lives together, and Dax has now said they share the ups and downs of their marriage because they want people to know that it takes work, just like any other romance that isn’t in the spotlight.
Speaking to ‘Sunday Today with Willie Geist’, he said: “We don’t want anyone to think we met and it’s been easy because if that’s someone’s expectation of a relationship and certainly a marriage, it’s a bad expectation to have.”
Dax’s comments come after Kristen – who has Lincoln, seven, and Delta, six, with her husband – recently opened up on the work it takes to keep their marriage strong.
She explained: “Dax and I, when we started this pandemic, were at a point in our marriage where we definitely needed a little therapy brush-up.
“Every couple of years, we’re like, ‘We’re being very antagonistic towards each other,’ and we don’t want that. We go back to therapy and figure out what I’m not doing that’s best for you and what you’re not doing that’s best for me, and how we can serve this team goal better. It’s been incredibly helpful.”
And although they have their ups and downs, the ‘Frozen II’ star also credits her husband with encouraging her to open up about her struggles with anxiety and depression.
She said: “My husband was like, yeah, talk about that. And I realized I had been presenting this like, bubbly individual, and it just wasn’t the full story. It didn’t have the dimension.
“I want to be the person who talks honestly and says, ‘I get what I present to you, it’s not always the case.’ So if you’re feeling that too, just know that I’m right here with you.”

It’s probably unfair to review the Sundance movie “CODA” in the context of the $25 million deal it made with Apple on Saturday, a record-breaking sale that places enormous expectations on Sian Heder’s gentle family drama. But it’s also inescapable that that kind of money will put pressure on “CODA” to be both an indie landmark and a commercial breakthrough rather than what it really is — a sweet, openhearted coming-of-age story that succeeds in…
