Kristen Bell Opens Up on Dax Shepard Romance & Being Sentimental

Kristen Bell, who is engaged to actor Dax Shepard, has opened up on their intimate relationship. Describing her soon-to-be husband very lovingly, Kristen says he is a very open person who comments on everything freely, which some people think is bossiness, but she thinks he is communicative which she finds to be a very attractive quality because he is also open to being vulnerable:

“How much time do you have? He’s extraordinarily communicative. He always says what’s on his mind and normally that can be interpreted as someone that’s bossy or a know-it-all, but I mean it as such a compliment. He tells me when he’s vulnerable and feeling insecure. He manages to be completely masculine and vulnerable at the same time. It’s so attractive. For me it was like…yeah, I’m in!”

Kristen admits that she is quite a sentimental person and one of her most prized possessions is her grandmother’s wedding ring. She also loves sentimental films with emotional stories, but she mostly enjoys the balance of emotions in life:

“My most treasured possession is my grandmother’s wedding band…and I watch Christmas Vacation a lot. I watch it in the middle of the year. That’s pretty sentimental. I’m all about balance. I read someone’s Twitter bio the other day, and it blew me away. ‘I think everything deserves to be loved, and everything deserves to be made fun of.’ I thought, ‘Wow. You’re speaking to my soul.’”
