Kristen Bell Dishes On Dax Shepard’s Hilariously Embarrassing Moment at Costco

Celebrities go shopping just like everyone else. And when they are recognized in public, sometimes the encounters can turn into a funny story to tell later on. This is exactly what happened to Dax Shepard on a recent trip to Costco, which was narrated in an interview by his wife Kristen Bell.

First things first, it’s important to understand that in Bell and Shepard’s household, one must love Costco. In a 2014 interview with Vulture, Bell shared that Costco was her “favorite store on the planet,” and she likes to buy green tea in bulk from there.

Shepard, who once played a cashier at a Costco-like store in the film Employee of the Month, has tweeted about the wholesale supplier on multiple occasions. For example, after the couple welcomed their second child, Lincoln, in 2013, Shepard told social media users: “After 8 days at home with LBS, my afternoon trip to Costco felt like late night rager at a strip club.”

Shortly their courthouse wedding, Shepard also told Jimmy Kimmel that he would go out to buy a cheap ring at Costco.

Bell once shared that she loves coupons and enjoys looking for deals instead of buying lavishly, so it isn’t surprising that she and her husband love how much they can save when shopping at Costco.

Dax Shepard recently was told something weird at the Costco checkout line

Since Bell and Shepard love Costco, the two of them probably often have a good time at the store. However, things did get a bit weird and embarrassing for Shepard recently.

On an episode of the YouTube series Hot Ones, Bell revealed that Shepard went to Costco and was recognized by the cashier who was checking out his items. Apparently, the woman looked at Shepard’s name and told him: “My daughter told me you died.” It is possible she was referencing a hoax story on the internet.

When Shepard asked the woman how exactly it was that he died, the cashier said: “Oh… I didn’t ask.”

This reportedly made Shepard quite sad as he told his wife later: “Do you know how uninteresting you’d have to be to not have someone ask how you died?”

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s other funny stories about each other

Bell and Shepard love humor, so over the years the couple has embarrassed each other with funny stories many times.

On Hot Ones, Bell also revealed that Shepard embarrassed her at the Met Gala a few years ago. The couple got to sit next to Beyonce and Jay-Z, and Bell was hoping to become friends with the celebrity couple. However, because Shepard was acting like such a Jay-Z fanboy, the rapper did not seem interested in getting close with Shepard. According to Shepard, he “gave Jay-Z 120 percent,” but Bell believed that he simply “talked Jay-Z’s ear off.”

Shepard had his moments of embarrassing Bell as well. He once shared on an episode of his podcast that his wife has a habit of mimicking people while watching movies. Bell also admitted that this made other people “miserable” when films or TV shows with her, especially when the characters speak with an accent.

It does not look like these funny stories will ever stop anytime soon for the couple and fans can expect more interesting anecdotes in the future. Bell actually once said they are “people who like embarrassment” because it “makes everything lighter and brighter when you can be cool about your embarrassing stories.”
