Kristen Bell saved fiance from a life of drugs

Kristen Bell Dax Shepard credits Kristen Bell with saving him from a life of drugs. The 37-year-old actor has been engaged to Kristen for over two years but admits his life before he met her was dangerously out of control and the pair were total opposites. He told Playboy magazine: "I just loved to get f****d-up -- drinking, cocaine, opiates, marijuana, diet pills, pain pills, everything. Mostly my love was Jack Daniels and cocaine. I lived for going down the rabbit hole of meeting weird people. Of course, come Monday I would be tallying up all the different situations, and each one was progressively more dangerous. I got lucky in that I didn't go to jail. Kristen's a good girl. She grew up very Christian, went straight to college, did great in school and started work immediately. She's charitable and philanthropic and rescues dogs. So when we met, our backgrounds were opposites. All the things I'd done were terrifying to her, and she had a hard time believing I would ever be able to stay married and monogamous and a father and all those things. For the first year and a half we were together that was what we battled over almost weekly." Dax also believes other men should be pleased that he managed to get a partner as Kristen because it gives hope to other "normal-looking" men. He explained: "Here's the funny thing about the response I've been aware of to my dating famous people: It's been very negative. I'm either not good-looking enough, not a good enough actor or not successful enough for these people. It's ironic, really. Guys should be excited that I got Kristen Bell. If Brad Pitt gets Kristen Bell, it's like, 'Well, of course he did.' With me, it should be, 'Oh good, a normal-looking guy got her. Maybe I'll get me a Kristen Bell.' But guys hate my guts for always dating women I have no right to be with."

    I’m glad Dax addresses the fact that he knows shes way out of his league…It hink they’re such a cute couple and they’re definitely going to last cause they seem really genuine!

    Wow good story. He IS lucky. She likes him for who he is. Maybe it can be a case of a woman trying to change a man, but he seems to really want to change for her and he realizes just how lucky he is.

    I’m in the same boat. I think I’m average looking and my new girlfriend pursued me and I’m like wtf..sue let’s go on a date. Great conversation and fun time and now I cannot stop thinking about her and I feel truly lucky. She’s amazing and I will do whatever I can to make her happy. I was not messed up with drugs or anything, this is a comment when guys think you don’t deserve someone. You can be deserving! Just treat them with respect.

    C-dub wait till you marry her at least because your story will probably be irrelevant
    after she dumps you next week.
