Kristen Bell revealed during Marc Maron’s podcast, WTF, on Monday, that she smokes weed around her husband, Dax Shepard, who has been sober for 14 years. Soon after, a lot of social media users slammed the actress for so selfishly making it hard on Dax to stay clean.
‘Once a week, if I am exhausted, and we are about to sit down and watch 60 Minutes, why not?’ Bell shared on the podcast.
But now, the man decided to defend his wife against the hate she has been receiving.
In fact, even The Talk joined in on the conversation, asking their followers: ‘Kristen Bell vapes weed around Dax Shepard, even though he’s sober. If you were sober, would you expect your spouse to be?’
Dax responded by mocking the, in his opinion, stupid question: ‘That would be like a diabetic expecting their partner to never eat dessert. Get real!’
One person online addressed Shepard’s tweet, saying they are a former cocaine addict and if anyone did ‘lines’ in front of them, they’d ‘have to think about that.’
‘I was also a cocaine addict more than pot. Never like it really. If someone were to do lines?? hmmm, have to think about that.’
In response, Dax made it very clear that his wife’s weekly smoking is nothing compared to doing dangerous drugs such as cocaine.
‘Yeah, she could most definitely NOT do lines in front of me,’ he wrote.
As for what Bell said during the podcast, the star also explained how her life partner has ‘lost his privilege with [drugs] because he can’t handle it. His brain doesn’t have the chemistry to handle it,’ which is why he doesn’t join her for the weekly pot smoking.
