Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Had the Perfect Response to Reports They Were Having Marriage Problems | 22 Words

Sometimes, the press can run away with a story before there's any real evidence that what they're writing is true. While this is the nature of the fast-paced world that we live in, it can be problematic - particularly for those that the news stories are about. And one story that was based on rumors and lies was about Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.

Last week, the internet was buzzing with information about the fact the pair's marriage was in trouble. The couple have long been internet favorites, and many were distraught at the news. But, never fear - the couple are still going strong, and have the perfect response to online nay-sayers.

Kristen Bell is one of television's best-loved actresses.

The comedy star is well known for roles on Veronica Mars, Gossip Girl, and The Good Place. 

She's married to Dax Shepard.

Shepard is a multitalented actor, writer, director, and podcast host.

The pair met in 2007.

They've been together for a long time - but decided to delay their marriage until California legalized same-sex marriage in 2013. What a couple of cuties!

They're known for being the definition of couple goals.

They're incredibly cute together, and can often be spotted in adorably intimate public displays of affection.

They've always avoided becoming a boring married couple.

They're very open about how they want to remain young and fun, even as they grow old together. Adorable. 

But that isn't to say that they make it look easy.

What's fantastic about Shepard and Bell is how open they are about how much work it takes to make a successful marriage.

The couple are open about both marriage and parenthood.

And, though they make both look like great fun, they also admit that it's not always rosy. In fact, the pair have admitted to being enrolled in couple's therapy to make sure that they make it work.

But make it work, they do.

And talking about the difficulties of marriage and parenthood only serve to normalize these issues and make everyone feel a bit better about their imperfect lives.

Shepard has also been open about other struggles.

He's claimed, that from the age of just eighteen until the year 2004, he struggled on and off with substance abuse. He's now clean and living his best life.

And Bell has always been supportive of his journey.

Having an addict partner is never easy, so we take our hats off to Bell for constantly standing by Shepard's side. Honestly, these two are just the best.

In fact, Bell is incredibly supportive of Shepard.

"I know how much you loved using. I know how much it got in your way. And I know, because I saw, how hard you worked to live without it. I will forever be in awe of your dedication, and the level of fierce moral inventory you perform on yourself, like an emotional surgery, every single night [...] I'm so proud that you have never been ashamed of your story, but instead shared it widely, with the hope it might inspire someone else to become the best version of themselves. You have certainly inspired me to do so." Aw!

It doesn't seem like anything could bring the pair down.

And yet, there are still people out there hoping for their downfall - if only so that they can write a good story about it.

And once such source reached out to Shepard this week.

This email dropped into his inbox - and he seemingly couldn't resist putting the press on blast for attempting to point out difficulties in his marriage.

Not only is this clearly an invasion of privacy...

But it also seems to be the vaguest story ever ...? They're having troubles, because of Dax's past substance abuse issues, but they're also fine? Huh?

Shepard gave the picture the perfect caption.

Sometimes, the best way to take down a nonsense story is to treat it like it's totally accurate. It only serves to depict the true absurdity of the lies.

But then things got even better.

Kristen Bell commented on the Instagram post "admitting" her "guilt" in terms of leaking the dirty details of their marriage to the media.

But she offered him a helpful solution.

We'd love to see the response of this magazine if Dax had actually taken Kristen's advice in terms of response.

(Just FYI, Bell is joking. There's clearly no actual source for the story.)

But wow, what a way to prove to doubters wrong. Not only are they still doing great - but we all know: the couple who trolls on social media together, stays together.

Truly, this pair is inspirational.

Not only do they get the mushy, sentimental stuff right, they also manage to consistently retain a sense of humor - which is the real key to successful relationships.

Truly, they melt our hearts.

Long may they continue their social media reign of terror. And for another couple who managed to amazingly troll media reports of a split, scroll on.
