How Tall Is Dax Shepard?

It’s hard not to notice celebrities who “stand out” in a crowd. One star, Dax Shepard, seemingly towers over his petite wife, Kristen Bell. During red carpet events, Shepard’s height is distinguishable, even when Bell wears heels. How tall is Dax Shepard and how does it compare to Bell?

Before the Armchair Expert podcast came about — or MTV’s Punk’dDax Shepard wanted to be a standup comedian. He previously said acting wasn’t his career of choice. Shepard revealed he was more excited to appear on talk shows than to act in a project.

He moved to Californa hoping it would be the push he needed to follow that dream. From there, life took him in another direction (improv), but he still maintains his humor in everything he does.

Wife of 7 years, Kristen Bell, previously told Today, Shepard’s sense of humor makes their marriage that much more exciting.

“On a daily basis, he just makes me laugh all the time. He’s obsessed with attention, so he’s constantly making jokes to try to get me to give him more attention or to get me to giggle,” she said. “And you know, he was a stand-up comedian, so I’m living with a comedian.”

According to multiple sources, Shepard is reportedly six feet, two inches tall. Those numbers explain why the podcaster appears so much larger than Bell. She is a reported five feet, one inch tall. Shepard is well over a foot higher than his life partner.

The two seem to make it work. Bell knows how to dress for her height to match up (however slight) against Shepard when walking a red carpet event.

Shepard and Bell decided to reveal all a long time ago

Height differences aside, Shepard and Bell live an open and honest life in the public eye.

“Something happened with Dax and I early on where we decided we were never going to not be asked about our relationship,” Bell revealed on the podcast Life Is Short With Justin Long.

“So if we were going to talk about it, let’s make sure we show the good, the bad and the ugly and how we handle it. Let’s not make it saccharine, and we really try hard to not make it saccharine. We talk about the fact that we do fight, we do go to therapy, we dislike each other a lot sometimes.”

The couple credits therapy in helping them get where they are today.

“You do better in the gym with a trainer. You don’t figure out how to cook without reading a recipe,” Bell told Good Housekeeping in 2015. “Therapy is not something to be embarrassed about.”
