It turns out that the two are very honest with one another and that may be a big reason why their marriage works so well. Kristen Bell revealed that she is so open with her hubby, fellow actor Dax Shepard that she is not afraid to discuss other people she finds attractive with him.
Today, the Good Place actress was a guest on The View, and that is where she got candid about her and Dax’s relationship.
‘I think that the one thing marriages do not have anymore’s honesty. We are playing this sort of Ken and Barbie game, like, ‘These are the rules and they are applicable to everybody.’ I just do not think they always work for everyone,’ Kristen shared.
She went on to say that ‘I also believe that attractiveness coming from your partner towards somebody, the idea of being offended by that, it is not really about your partner. It is about your narcissism. And you need to identify that you are questioning, ‘Why am I not good enough?’’
The actress made it very clear that she loves her husband ‘more than anything on this Earth’ and that she thinks he’s very attractive.
However, that doesn’t mean she is blind when it comes to other handsome men.
Bell explained that ‘I’m also attracted to other guys because some guys are very handsome… But me being attracted to another guy, I know because I am experiencing it, has absolutely nothing to do with my husband. I know that when he experiences the same thing, it does not have anything to do with me not being good enough… The jealousy issues I would have towards my husband are me not dealing with my issues of inadequacy.’
But is Shepard jealous? According to the wife, he isn’t, and the reason is their honesty.
‘We talk openly about other people we are attracted to. And we usually like the same people. Like we both find Jennifer Lopez attractive. We both find Taylor Kitsch attractive. I think because we talk openly and honestly.’
