Kristen Bell has revealed that she felt ‘no spark’ with husband Dax Shepard when they first met back in 2007.

The Good Place star tied the knot with Dax in 2013, with the couple having two young children together.

However, telling the story of their first meeting, 39-year-old Kristen revealed that the pair didn’t get off to the best start.

‘The producer of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Shauna Robertson, who’s Judd Apatow‘s previous producing partner, had a birthday dinner, like 10 people, at a sushi restaurant,’ she recalled to Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist.

‘I had just gotten out of a long term relationship two months prior… he had just gotten out of a long relationship.

‘We were sitting at a table,’ she continued. ‘The only thing I remember is that he talked so much. This guy can talk.’

Even more embarrassingly, Kristen had no idea who Dax was, thinking that she’d recognised the Punk’d star from Jackass instead.

‘I didn’t know who he was,’ Kristen admitted. ‘I’m like, “Is that one of the guys from Jackass or something?” Then we left. There were no sparks whatsoever.’

It wasn’t until they ran into each other a second time that Bell saw the potential of a romantic connection.

Luckily, the pair’s joint love of hockey brought them together, with Dax flirting with the Veronica Mars star at a game a couple of weeks later.

‘[The] day after that I get a text that says, “Hi, my name is Dax. I violated your privacy and got your number from Shauna. How do you feel about that?” And I was like, “Excuse me? You sound stimulating.”’

A move like that might not work on everyone, but it definitely worked for Kristen.

She beamed: ‘He’s so bold and that was my kind of person. I was like, okay, starting it off with a really good joke that makes me feel butterflies. I fell in love with him way before he fell in love with me.’
