Dax Shepard's latest confession has us frozen for more.

The Parenthood alum told Anna Kendrick that, in the 15 years he's known his wife Kristen Bell, Anna has been the only person to make her jealous.

"She has only had jealousy over a single human, and it's been you," Dax revealed to the Pitch Perfect star on the Jan. 9 episode of his Armchair Expert podcast. "I'd never seen it. It blew my mind."

"Kristen was like, ‘Who is this other short person?'" he recalled. "'Oh, so she can sing like that too? I'm already here. We got another one.'"

However, The Good Place star has no shame about her past green-eyed monster, giving her husband—who she married in 2013 and shares daughters, Lincoln, 9 and Delta, 8 with— permission to tell the story to Anna.

"I wanna preface it by that—in the 15 years I've known Kristen, she's had nothing but benevolence for everyone," Dax continued. "She monitored you, recognized how brilliant you were, lost some roles to you, and slowly processed the whole thing, and has nothing but wonderful feelings for you. But you're the only person who ever made her jealous that I witnessed."

Anna chimed in, admitting that she was debating telling Dax that she'd always felt that the Frozen star "never really liked me."

"But I do think a massive percentage of that is just genuinely when it comes to really sweet angelic blonde girls," Anna explained. "I just assumed they think I am weird, they think I am like this weird little troll. And I don't think of Kristen as short, I think of her as just an angel, and she's so sweet. And I feel so rough around the edges that I was like, ‘Oh, she must not like me.' I am sure that's just my projections, that's not actually how she feels."

So, was there something more brewing between the actresses? 

"Maybe there was just some energetic thing there," the Twilight alum confessed. "In all likelyhood there wasn't and it was just my typical thing of certain women who look a certain way scare me and I just assume that they won't like me."

But there is no bad blood between the two, as Dax clarified, "I have to be ultra clear with you: She never disliked you."
