Actors Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are one of those Hollywood couples we’ll never stop shipping. They are adorable and beautiful and funny. They’ve been together for almost 10 years which is the equivalent of like at least 35 Hollywood years. Most importantly, they are incredibly forthright when it comes to their relationship and the struggle that is maintaining one— especially in the public eye.
But their dreamy partnership wasn’t always so dreamy. In a recent Harry interview Bell revealed just how much the couple fought during the first year of their relationship, and just how much of it was due to what she calls “incredibly toxic” behavior; Namely, her penchant for the dramatic.
When we first met, we fell madly in love and I love the dramatic exit. There is nothing I crave more. We’d get in a fight because we’d fight a lot, and I’d yell something and then slam the bedroom door, then I’d slam the front door, then I’d get in my car and then I’d skid out the driveway and I would sit around the corner in my car and it felt so good and I realised how incredibly toxic it was only after he pointed it out.
She went on to say that after several months of this behavior Dax finally put his foot down, ultimately setting an ultimatum for their relationship.
