Kristen Bell discusses why she and her husband Dax Shepherd go to therapy

Kristen Bell has revealed that she doesn’t like the term ‘relationship goals’ being applied to herself and her husband Dax Shepard.

The 41-year-old actress told Stellar on Saturday that she and her comedian partner think the title is ‘a bit inauthentic’ for them.

The Good Place star told the magazine that the pair are just a normal couple who have disagreements and seek help from a professional to work through their shortcomings when they need to.

‘We try to be very honest about [the fact] that we disagree a lot, but go to therapy when we need it, because I don’t want to set people up to think they should be looking for the missing puzzle piece,’ she said.

‘Every human being is a mess. You need to figure out how to ebb and flow, and grow with someone,’ she said of their relationship.

The couple married in 2010, and are doting parents to two daughters Lincoln, eight, and Delta, six.

Kristen, known for her work on Veronica Mars and Gossip Girl, is best known by younger Disney fans as the voice of Anna in the Frozen films.

While she’s the envy of children all over the world, Kristen says that her girls keep her grounded and are in fact her harshest critics.

She explained that while girls know she voices the Disney princess, they don’t actually care that their mother is part of the global hit. 

Family: They are parents to two daughters Lincoln, eight, and Delta, six. Kristen is best known by as the voice of Anna in the film Frozen, but she said her girls don't care for her star power. 'Children were created to keep you humble and mine are doing a great job at their job,' she said

‘They couldn’t care less. Children were created to keep you humble and mine are doing a great job at their job. They like Frozen, but they don’t like talking about the fact that I’m a part of it,’ she said.  

In August, Kristen revealed that she ‘waits for the stink’ before bathing their two children – a similar approached by fellow Hollywood parents Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher – during an interview with The View.

Kristen explained the smell was biology’s way of indicating it was time for a clean-up.

‘I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink. Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up,’ she said in their joint interview.

Weeks later after causing a stir with those comments, she told Access Hollywood she underestimated the public’s interest on the subject, which spawned a series of statements from other celebs about their hygienic habits.

‘I thought, ‘America is not going to dig deep into this and want all the intel on how often people bathe, right?’ Because there are much more important topics.

‘It was kind of funny when we started being asked about it and then the interviewers didn’t even know that Dax’s podcast was the one that started the questions.’

She noted that the initial discussion on the matter was of a satirical nature: ‘By the way, of a room full of four comedians – Dax, Monica Padman, Ashton Kutcher, and Mila Kunis – who were ‘joking’ about bathing and then the world took it seriously.

‘So, I lost a lot of faith in the human race,’ she said, adding it was up to the viewer to determine if they were being serious.
