Kristen Bell Reveals the Cheesy Pickup Line Dax Shepard Used to Win Her Heart

All thanks to Instagram’s new question feature, celebrities are dishing on everything from their workout routine to their favorite gluten-free snacks. So, when a fan asked Kristen Bell how she and Dax Shepard met, the actress didn’t hold back on writing a lengthy response that proves pickup lines do, in fact, work.

It all started when a follower responded to Bell’s Instagram Story and demanded to know more about the couple’s meet-cute, which prompted the actress to admit that it wasn’t love at first sight. “At a birthday dinner for a mutual friend,” she wrote. “But there weren’t any sparks. 2 weeks later I saw him at a hockey game and he asked for the gum in my mouth and I was like, HELLO…”

But wait, there’s more. When another user asked her to elaborate, Bell confirmed that Shepard had his eyes on the prize.

She added, “Truly, his first text to me was: ‘Hi. My name is Dax. I violated your privacy and got your number from Shauna. How do u feel about that?’ And I thought… what the hell?? This kid is sassy!!”
