Need more proof that Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are the cutest and most hilarious couple in the world? Bell shared a funny secret about their love life on “Conan” Tuesday (Jan. 21) — that Shepard kind of felt like he was “cheating” on Bell when they were intimate while she was pregnant.
“He said he liked some meat on my bones. First of all, he phrased it as ‘there’s more of you to love,’ but then one time he did say, ‘It feels like I’m cheating on you.’ And that, I think, was the ticket because he felt like he was with a completely different woman,” says Bell. “That’s pretty exciting if you’re married, you know what I mean, and can feel like you’re with someone else?”
Conan and his audience don’t really react in a very positive manner to that. Conan calls it “creepy.”
“Is it? Or is it pretty cool because I was also involved and he kind of got a freebie that didn’t hurt anybody’s feelings? Sorry if that’s too progressive for everybody!” says Bell with a laugh.
She also re-shares an anecdote she previously used on “The Talk” about filming “House of Lies” sex scenes while quite far along in her pregnancy. But maybe the highlight of the interview is at the end, when Conan busts out (ahem) a “Veronica Mars” bust that is … wow. The video is below, it’s amazing — plus, we found the promotional picture the bust is based on.
“They scanned me for this, so this is exactly what I looked like. I take full responsibility for this,” says Bell of the rather hideous figurine. She also reveals that during Season 1 of “House of Lies,” she gave one as a Christmas gift to all of her co-stars and now they each have one on their desks. “It’s the worst,” laments Bell. “I hate it so much.”
“House of Lies” airs Sunday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
