Kristen Bell Discusses Husband Dax Shepard's Childhood Molestation Revelation

Kristen Bell is opening up about her husband Dax Shepard‘s decision to reveal that he is a victim of childhood molestation.

The 41-year-old actor discussed his traumatic experience earlier this week on a radio show and revealed it happened when he was just seven years old at the hand of an 18-year-old neighbor.

“Well, in truth, he has dealt with it many, many years ago,” Kristen told Us Weekly. “It wasn’t a moment he revealed. It’s a lifestyle he lives, where he’s honest and brave. The entirety of the radio show, he was relating to the host who had a similar revelation, and they were communicating.”

“I think that to me is the more profound thing that he does talk about it,” Kristen added. “Anytime someone can admit a vulnerability, and it can be helpful to others, it should be done when said person is ready. That emotion is maybe one of the most profound ones we have. I, particularly, I’m taken with vulnerability when you’re in any sort of conflict. If you come at the other person, come back to the other person with vulnerability, you can never lose. It always makes the situation better.”
