Kristen Bell Fight With Dax Shepard on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Kristen Bell Shares the Hilariously Stubborn Details of Her First Huge Fight With Dax Shepard

Kristen Bell is an icon. During Tuesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress revealed some funny anecdotes about her relationship with hubby Dax Shepard — seriously, we don't think we've ever learned this much about a person from a nine-minute video clip. Dax has melted our hearts numerous times with his relationship advice and candid keys to making their marriage work, but as Kristen elaborately explained on the show, this guy is totally attached to his motorcycle and off-road vehicles (read: grown-up toys).

"My one daughter has a lamby, my other daughter has a blanket, my husband has a 1,000-pound off-road vehicle, and I have my vape pen . . . #edgymom," Kristen said. But before they were a compromising family of four with their own vices, Dax and Kristen were stubborn, and nothing epitomizes new relationships more than this lovely story about the couple's first blowout fight.

After she was finished filming the 2010 movie When In Rome alongside Josh Duhamel, Kristen and Dax decided to take a road trip to meet their families in Detroit. But this wasn't your average road trip with iPads and souvenir shopping at highway rest stops; these two rode Dax's motorcycle home, and while the first half was filled with yacht rock, which we know is Dax's genre of choice, the other half was filled with screaming.

"We were newly in our relationship, and he had chosen the music for the first two states, and when he went into the service station I thought, 'Well, that's a wrap for me. I'm up to here with the yacht rock, outlaw country; let's get some show tunes, right?!' So I switched the iPod. Well, he was not happy," Kristen recalled. "Because I didn't ask, we didn't discuss it, and it was also like we're both control freaks, [and it was the] beginning of our relationship."

The music was only the start of the fight for Dax and Kristen, who explained that the fight spiraled into an argument about helmet laws. "Because Dax Shepard believes that if he's in a state that does not have a helmet law, he should be 'observing the local culture' and not wear his helmet," she said. "We ended up compromising that if he was on the highway, he had to wear the helmet. But if he was on side streets, he didn't have to wear the helmet. I'm not joking — he took side streets for like four hours just to make a point."

For the next few states, their fight massively escalated, culminating in them screaming at each other over the sounds of the motorcycle and completely losing their voices. When they reached Kristen's home, having barely survived this horrible fight, they were greeted by her mom, a tower of VHS recordings, and a "medium-length photo shoot." This sounds like a motorcycle ride from hell, but we are so thankful that they worked things out because we don't know where we'd be without their adorable couple moments.

Kristen's final words of wisdom: "But we continued dating, Jimmy. That's the moral of the story. We worked through it. It's about compromise. It's about understanding the other person's wants and needs. We weren't listening to each other back then, but now we listen."
