“House of Lies” star Kristen Bell revealed her husband Dax Shepard loved her curves when she was pregnant.
Bell told Conan O’Brien that Dax almost felt like he was cheating on her, after she gained 43 pounds during her pregnancy.
The 33-year-old actress, who has a 10-month-old daughter Lincoln with her husband, gained quite a bit of weight on her petite frame.
She said of Dax, “He said he likes some meat on my bones. He said there is more of you to love. One time he did say, ‘It feels like I’m cheating on you’. And that, I think, was the ticket because he felt like he was with a completely different woman.”
Conan O’Brien said he thought that was a “tad creepy”, but it obviously didn’t bother Kristen Bell.
She said, “I was also involved and he got a freebie that didn’t hurt anybody’s feelings. Or is that too progressive for everybody?”
Kristen had to shoot a number of intimate scenes for her Showtime series “House of Lies”, which was a bit awkward while pregnant.
She explained, “There was a storyline in the second season when my character has a sex tape come out. I was seven months pregnant at that time. I had this huge gut and I was, you know, pretending to act in a sex tape and I can look at my daughter and say ‘You were present for that.'”
Her co-star Adam Brody referred to their sex scenes as “threesomes” because of her pregnancy.
