There were no sparks between Frozen 2's Kristen Bell and husband Dax Shepard the first time they met.
But weeks later, amid a shared love of Detroit hockey, the two started to click. And the rest is history.
Bell, 39, and Shepard, 44, have been together for over a decade and wed in 2013. They share two daughters. Bell and Shepard met in 2007 at a mutual friend's small sushi birthday dinner. They both came with some baggage.
"I had just gotten out of a long-term relationship like two months prior [with ex-fiancé Kevin Mann] and in retrospect, I realized [Shepard] had just gotten out of a long relationship," Bell said on NBC's Sunday Today. "We were sitting at a table. The only thing I remember is that he talked so much. I was like, 'This guy can ta-alk!' And then I didn't know who he was...maybe one of the guys from Jackass or something."
"There were no sparks whatsoever," she later added. "None."
Two weeks later, they met again at a Los Angeles Kings-Detroit Red Wings hockey game.
Bell and Shepard, who are both from Michigan, were invited by another mutual friend, Smallville alum Michael Rosenbaum.
"We...started to flirt, left and then a day after that I get a text that says, 'Hi, this is Dax. I violated your privacy and got your number from Shawna. How do you feel about that?'" Bell said. "And I was like, 'Excuse me? You sound stimulating.'"
Bell admired Shepard's boldness.
"I fell in love with him way before he fell in love with me," she said.
Bell would go on to make an appearance alongside Shepard on MTV's Punk'd, in which he played a field agent, in 2005. They later starred together in the films Hit and Run, The Boss, When in Rome and CHIPS, which Shepard also directed.
