Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, and this week, Kristen shared some thoughtful relationship advice that doesn’t sugarcoat it. During a Reddit AMA, one fan said how much they appreciate Kristen’s realistic take on long-term relationships, asking whether she had any tips for other couples. «Try hard. It’s uncomfortable, but worth it,» Kristen said. «Also BE VULNERABLE. No one does it right. So forgive. And then be vulnerable again.»
We have Falcons-Packers tonight for Sunday Night Football, a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship where the Packers came to Atlanta and promptly got their doors blown off.
This is the first regular season game in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, so it’s kind of a big deal. The lights will be on, the roof will be open and Falcons cheerleader, Nicole Bell, will trot out there for her fourth season. She’s already got a following of her own with over 30k IG followers, but I figured we could bump that up a little bit more today.
If Kate Mara and Jamie Bell were once members of the Fantastic Four, then together they make the Terrific Two — right? Sorry. The pair, who got engaged earlier this year and tied the knot in July, seem to have a love stronger than Sue Storm and The Thing combined. Funny enough, the costars, who started dating in late 2015, actually met many years before while working together on the Marvel movie. Kate Mara opened up on What Happens Live With Andy Cohenin May to explain: «We met like 10 years before and did a screen test together and had to kiss.» She later added that it wasn’t during the filming of Fantastic Four that the pair fell for one another, but on the press tour.
Kristen Bell is truly a magical human being. After getting stuck in Orlando while filming her movieLike Father during Hurricane Irma, the actress is currently shedding light and positivity in the midst of all the heartbreaking devastation in Florida. Aside from saving Frozen costar Josh Gad’s parents and Jennifer Carpenter’s 82-year-old grandmother and aunt, the mother of two made her way out to a local middle school, which is being used as a shelter, to perform Disney songs for children and their parents. «When you’re #singinginahurricane, your volunteer back up dancers can & will steal the show,» she captioned the shot of her on stage. «Richard and Rebecca everyone! #hurricaneirma» She also shared an adorable moment when an elderly man named John serenaded her with a song. Read ahead to see everything else Kristen is doing during this devastating storm.
As if saving Josh Gad’s parents from Hurricane Irma wasn’t enough, Kristen Bell also came to the rescue of actress Jennifer Carpenter’s 82-year-old grandmother and her aunt who were both stranded in Tampa, FL ahead of the storm. «Gma&aunt were ready2 wear helmets N closet under eye of #HurricanIrma til @IMKristenBell found them a way out!!❤️❤️❤️,» the actress tweeted along with a photo of the pair in their helmets. Jennifer told the Huffington Post that her two family members were planning to wade out the storm in a «closet with a blanket and a couple of pillows» before she saw what Kristen did for her Frozen co-star and decided to reach out.
«I decided to reach out … and told her what we were up against. I wanted to see if they could sleep in the lobby of her hotel. Or in the hallway. Anything!» she told the publication. Within moments, Kristen, who was unable to evacuate the Sunshine State while filming for a new movie, Like Father, in Orlando, responded to Jennifer’s plea. Kristen told her that her coworkers were more than willing to share a room with her grandmother and aunt so they would have a safer place to brace for the hurricane instead of inside of a tiny closet.
«I know that’s the reality for a lot of people right now. I also know that if Kristen could get all of them a room in a safer place, she would do it,» Carpenter said. «She’s like a battery that never loses her charge for the good fight. She deserves a lot of credit for what she does publicly and privately.»
Kristen has remained positive throughout the whole ordeal, even sharing an adorable photo of herself entertaining people during the hurricane with a musical performance. «When youre #singinginahurricane, your volunteer back up dancers can & will steal the show. Richard and Rebecca everyone! #hurricaneirma,» she wrote on Instagram. See it ahead.
Kristen Bell is currently stuck in Florida preparing to brace for Hurricane Irma’s arrival. The 37-year-old actress wrote about how the storm is «bring[ing] out the best in everyone,» who were helping their neighbors, but little did we know, Kristen had secretly done a good deed as well. Her Frozen co-star, Josh Gad, took to Instagram to thanking Kristen for saving his parents who are also stranded in the Sunshine Sate.
«So @kristenanniebell literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from #hurricaneirma,» he wrote underneath the adorable selfie Kristen took with his parents. «When they were stranded in Florida, she got them a hotel room at her hotel in Orlando and saved them, my brothers, my sister-in-law and niece and nephew. They don’t make them like this girl.» Josh went on to call Kristen «an angel sent from above,» and we couldn’t agree more!
«It still takes a lot of work, but we are choosing to be this happy because the other choice is, what, choosing to be unhappy? No thanks,» she said when I told her it always looks like the two of them have so much fun together. She went on to describe the hiccup they actually went through very, very early in their relationship that resulted in a breakup. «We were dating for about three months, and I already knew that I was in love with him and he was hesitant because he knew he was still dating other people,» she said of when they got together 10 years ago. «He sat me down and said, ‘I can’t have this right now. I think you’re wonderful, but I am still dating other people.’ And then I, like, liquefied and fell to the ground, but I felt incredibly respected that he had the balls to tell me we weren’t in the same place.»
She said she left that conversation thinking he had just made a huge mistake, but she knew she’d get through it. And sure enough, she said, he called her just four days later and said he screwed up. «He called me and he was like, ‘I don’t know what I was thinking. I was dating someone else but they’re just not as interesting as you, and I don’t know what I’m doing,’ and he came back,» she continued. «But I still always remind him of when he broke up with me.»
The Tacopocalypse is upon us: Are you prepared? Lyft recently announced that it’s testing a feature called “Taco Mode,” in which riders can push a button and their driver will take them to the nearest Taco Bell drive through.
Taco Bell will test “Taco Mode” in Orange County, California, from July 27 to 29 and August 3 to 5, with plans to expand the service across the US in 2018. In addition to providing passengers the ability to order drive-thru Taco Bell, Taco Mode also includes a custom in-car menu, free Doritos Locos tacos, and what the company calls a “taco-themed car.”
What could go wrong? I’m sure Lyft’s drivers are just thrilled to bits about this news. Driving drunk people around is already the worst, so what do you call something that’s worse than worst? Well, welcome to Taco-geddon.
Anybody who has ever drunk-ordered Taco Bell knows how it goes down. First, you’re drunk and Taco Bell seems like the best idea in the history of ideas. You sit in the car, huffing exhaust while you wait in line, which is hella long because all the bars just closed and you were not the only person to have the greatest idea of all time. As soon as it’s your turn to order you get the giggles and have to pull your shit together to talk into the box. Homegirl in the back can’t make up her damn mind about how many tacos she thinks she can neck. You get to the window and realize you spent your last $ 20 at the bar and have to dig under the seats for loose change. You still don’t have enough, so everybody in the back has to also look for loose change. You’re still $ 2.38 short, so you cancel the chalupa. You exit the drive through with your hot garbage food, pull over to the curb and set upon it like a pack of dingoes at a daycare center. Bean burrito wrappers are flying, sauce packets are squirting, whoever the fuck ordered the Mexican Pizza belches loudly. Homegirl overestimated how many tacos she could neck and lets the last, unfinished one slide out of her hand onto the floor of the back seat. Shredded lettuce litters the car as if it were shot from a confetti cannon. Somehow there are not enough napkins and too many napkins. Everybody is now sick and full of regret. This my friends, is “Taco Mode.” Sorry Lyft drivers, your car is now a “taco-themed car.”
I hope will all live to see the sunrise on August 6th.
When Kristen Bell loves something, she loves hard; we’ve seen this with her obsession with sloths, her commitment to family, and, of course, her die-hard Game of Thrones fandom. Kristen’s love for the Seven Kingdoms didn’t start at the LA premiere, though; she and Dax have been geeking out over the show over the years (they’ve even gotten their kids and dogs involved, not to mention a poor Anna doll from Frozen). Read on to see just how deep Kristen’s GoT love runs.
