Kristen Bell Responded To A Commenter Who Said She And Dax Shepard “Can’t Stand Each Other”

“It’s important to us that we lead with the honesty of your ‘perfect match’ being a myth.”

The pair — who have been together for 13 years — have always been open about their struggles, from fights so bad they “blacked out” to their experiences with couples therapy.

It all started last week with an episode of Top Gear America, during which Dax decided to have this mural of himself and his wife painted on the side of a van:

In an interview with Pop Culture after the episode aired, Dax explained that the mural was a reference to a Chuck Norris movie, but admitted that Kristen still wasn’t too happy with it.

“My wife is pretty adamant that’s the one vehicle she doesn’t want in our driveway,” he told the outlet. “She wasn’t thrilled with the level of ‘female empowerment’ that was depicted in that mural. Understandably.”

“My kind of excuse was we had to honor [the ’70s,] the era in which this was popular,” he added. “It didn’t fly.”

“We just try to be honest about how marriage, or companionship in any form, is hard sometimes,” Kristen wrote.

She went on: “You can’t always be in control, or right, and it’s important to us that we lead with the honesty of your ‘perfect match’ being a myth.”

“You gotta work hard to love yourself and love other humans,” Kristen finished.
