Dax Shepard Admits He Told His Kids Not to Reveal That Mom Kristen Bell Is Anna on 'Frozen'
Dax Shepard says he told his daughters not to tell their friends that their mom, Kirsten Bell, is the voice of "Frozen's" Princess Anna. The actor talked about parenting fears with his guest on his podcast, Justin Timberlake.
If you were a little girl and knew your mom did the voice of Princess Anna on "Frozen," you'd probably want to shout it from the rooftops. But Dax Shepard, 49, recently admitted he told his daughters, Lincoln, 7, and Delta, 6, not to tell their friends.
When singer-actor Justin Timberlake joined Shepard on the "Armchair Experience with Dax Shepard" podcast, the host recalled the time his community staged a small theatrical performance.
He told his daughters that even though they were proud of their mom being Anna, they shouldn't publicize it. Timberlake laughed, saying that was an impossible ask for a little girl. Shepard divulged his reasoning, saying to his kids:
"I'm just warning you that will probably make other kids jealous and they won't know how to handle that feeling."
The "Buddy Games" star went on to say he was concerned that his daughters' peers would only want to become friends with them, or worse, resent them because they had famous parents.
Timberlake, 39, could relate to his colleague's concerns. As the father to Silas, 5, with his wife Jessica Biel, he recounted how children at Silas's school walked up to him, declaring that his dad was Branch from Trolls.
Shepard told of how his daughters are constantly taking and losing his things.
The Palmer star told Shepard the best thing people in their position can do is explain to their kids that those roles are fun jobs that they get to enjoy but do not define who they are. Timberlake welcomed newborn Phineas last year with Biel.
Shepard also commiserated with Timberlake, vocalizing the fear he would have in raising a son. The actor admitted he wouldn't know how to advise his boy if he confided in him that he was being bullied at school, saying:
"You either get punched for the rest of your life or just slug them once then it's over."
The dad of two explained this was a conundrum for him because he would either be reinforcing the stereotype of boys having to fight each other or be leading his child down the path of being victimized for life.
When Shepard isn't stressing about his parenting abilities, he's hiding his valuables from his kids, as he hilariously explained on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week. Shepard told of how his daughters are continually taking and losing his things.
So he decided to invest in a safe to store his valuables in, including barber shears he uses to cut hair semi-professionally. However, his kids figured out how to climb a chair to get to the safe key and open it, which meant all his efforts were wasted.
Thieving children aside, Shepard did have gratitude for the extended time he got to spend with his family throughout the Coronavirus quarantine, which was first instated last year.
The dad two noted all the heartache and disappointment the virus has caused to families worldwide and counted himself lucky to have been able to be with his amazing kids.
