Favourite Hollywood couple Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell appeared on The Ellen Show to celebrate Ellen’s birthday, and they had many things to say about boobs and frocks.
The couple, who are parents to daughters 2-year-old Delta and 3-year-old Lincoln, were discussing their appearance at the Golden Globes awards, chatting Brad Pitt, celebrity crushes and… boobs. Seems legit.
When Ellen asked Dax about the impact Kristen’s (gorgeous) plunging dress had on him, he said it was pretty negligible. After all, he’s seen them before.
“She started breastfeeding our children, 3 and a half years ago, in front of almost exclusively my dude friends. The baby was always hungry when my guy pals would come over. You just get over it real quick,” Dax explained.
It’s all just part of the day-to-day scenery, in Dax’s world.
“It becomes like white noise. They might have been out. I don’t know. I can’t say for sure when they’re out and when they’re not out,” he mused.
“They’re just boobs,” Kristen cut in.
“They’re life sources,” Dax corrected.
Kristen went on to mention that she had a small role alongside Dax in the upcoming remake of Chips.
A full day on the Chips set in costume meant that she didn’t pump milk for a whole day (she usually pumps four hourly) and again her boobs became the star of the show, defying even Kristen’s expectations in their awe-inspiring ability to not only swell upwards, but outwards too.
She even did some hand motions and motorboat mouth to indicate the mechanics of engorgement.
While it was suggested that she start pumping just a little to ease the burden, Kristen disagreed wildly, saying it would open the floodgates, and Boobmageddon would ensue.
“It was mildly painful,” Kristen admitted.
“Just let some steam off,” Dax said he’d urged his wife on set.
(This is the bit where she disagrees wildly.)
“You can’t! You can’t! You will open the floodgates. That’s a wrap. Everything’s wet,” she explained wanly.
She says suffering for her art is no biggie.
“It was worth it. This was like my version of Christian Bale losing 125 pounds, or something,” Kristen said.
“She looked like Pamela Anderson, which I think was the goal,” Dax explained.
“Yeah,” Kristen nodded and kissed him right on the mouth.
“I wish there was a way for me to repay it. Like not pee for a couple of days or something,” he elaborated, urged on by the encouraging smooch.
