Kristen Bell Praises Husband Dax Shepard For Publicly Revealing He Was Molested As a Child

Actress Kristen Bell has spoken out in support of her husband Dax Shephard who revealed this week that he was molested as a child.

‘It wasn’t a moment he revealed. It’s a lifestyle he lives, where he’s honest and brave,’ she told a US publication.

Dax Shepherd and Kristen Bell have been together for nine years. The actor recently revealed he had been molested as a child by an 18-year-old neighbour.

The actress, who provided the voice of Anna in Frozen went on to say how proud she is other husband’s decision to share his traumatic experience.

‘I think that to me is the more profound thing that he does talk about it,’ Kristen added. ‘Anytime someone can admit a vulnerability, and it can be helpful to others, it should be done when said person is ready. That emotion is maybe one of the most profound ones we have.’


Dax, 41, in an interview which aired on Monday, spoke about the damage that had been done to him as a result of the abuse he suffered at the hands of an 18-year-old neighbour when he was seven. ‘It was minimal [but] it took me 12 years to tell anyone,’ he revealed. ‘And then all that time, I was like, a) ‘It’s my fault,’ as generic as that is … ‘and I’m gay, I must have manifested this because I’m secretly gay’,’ he said.
