Kristen Bell and Dex Shepard seem to be on of Hollywood's rare lasting love stories.

She revealed that she felt 'no sparks whatsoever' when she first met Dax in 2008 at a mutual friends birthday dinner.

Kristen Bell reveals she felt 'no sparks whatsoever' the first time she met husband Dax Shepard

No future here: Kristen Bell revealed that she felt 'no sparks whatsoever' when she first met Dax Shepard in 2008 at a mutual friends birthday dinner 

During the dinner for producer Shauna Robertson, who produced Kristen's film Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Dax rubbed her the wrong way. 

Kristen, 39, has now said it definitely wasn’t love at first sight for the pair, as Kristen found herself getting irritated because Dax 'talked so much.'

She added: 'The producer of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Shauna Robertson, who’s Judd Apatow's previous producing partner, had a birthday dinner - like, 10 people, maybe less, at a sushi restaurant. 

They both were fresh out of relationships, according to her. 

Shut up: 'We were sitting at a table. The only thing I remember is that he talked so much,' she said. 'And then I didn’t know who he was. I’m like, "Is that one of the guys from Jackass or something?’ … And then we left. There were no sparks whatsoever' 

'And I had just gotten out of a long-term relationship, like, two months prior,' she said. 'And in retrospect, I realize he had just gotten out of a long relationship. 

'We were sitting at a table. The only thing I remember is that he talked so much,' she said. 'And then I didn’t know who he was. I’m like, "Is that one of the guys from Jackass or something?’ … And then we left. There were no sparks whatsoever.'

Kristen - who eventually married Dax in 2013, and has daughters Lincoln, six, and Delta, four, with him - then met her future husband a second time two weeks later, and began to see the potential for a romantic connection. 

She recalled during an appearance on the Today show: 'Two weeks later we both met at a hockey game … we saw each other … started to flirt,' she says. 'Then a 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.’ 

Together since: They met again two weeks later and the rest is history '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, like, butterflies. I fell in love with him way before he fell in love with me'

'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, like, butterflies. I fell in love with him way before he fell in love with me.'

Although their romance is now stronger than ever, the pair have never been shy when it comes to revealing the ups and down they’ve endured together. 

Earlier this year, 44-year-old Dax said: 'We definitely had to work really hard at being a couple because we’re both incredibly, painfully stubborn, and we’re pretty much opposites.'
