Kristen Bell is the unique voice behind the famous "Frozen" fictional character, Anna, and is ready to reprise her role again for the Disney film's third installment.

The 2013 original animated movie became a massive success amongst kids and kids-at-heart musical lovers. Thanks to the cast and crew, the film hit a $1.28 billion revenue at the box office.

In a "Good Morning America interview," Bell revealed that she would voice Anna again "in a heartbeat." She said:

"I would do it in a heartbeat. I love that family. Listen, if we are both in, what are we waiting for?"

Bell plays an on-screen princess, but behind the scenes, she is also treated like royalty by her partner of 15 years, Dax Shepard.

KRISTEN BELL AND DAX SHEPARD'S RELATIONSHIP THROUGH THE YEARS

Bell and Shepard's love story began at an intimate 2007 dinner party. Admittedly, Bell felt "no sparks whatsoever" at that time and just recalled the actor talking too much.

Two weeks later, they crossed paths again at a Detroit Red Wings hockey game and hit it off. Although they were in love, their relationship did not go without trouble. Bell said:

"When we first met, we fell madly in love, and I love the dramatic exit. There is nothing I crave more. We'd get in a fight because we'd fight a lot, and I'd yell something and then slam the bedroom door [...]."

After three months of dating, they decided to call it quits. However, their separation did not last long. After a few days, Shepard won Bell back, and in 2009, the couple got engaged. Four years later, the "Chips" star revealed that he had already married Bell in a small, intimate wedding ceremony.

SOME HIDDEN DETAILS ABOUT KRISTEN BELL AND DAX SHEPARD'S MARRIAGE

Before meeting the "Frozen" star, Shepard was a very different man. He once dated Ashley Olsen, was in an open relationship for nine years, and "was blacked out" for a big part of his life. He said:

"You know there were a lot of things for [Kristen] to be concerned about."

Both had internal struggles which may have contributed to their relationship challenges. However, they overcame these by seeking professional help. "[Our therapist] suggested that we go to therapy separately, kind of so that we could talk [expletive] about each other," Bell said.

Bell has since been praising Shepard for being a great husband and father to their kids. Earlier this year, the actress penned a sweet tribute to Shepard ahead of his birthday celebration. According to Bell, none of them deserved Shepard, implying that he was a good person.
