Kristen Bell: It's her party sloth, and she'll cry if she wants to

January 31, 2012 |  3:36 pm


Oh, Kristen Bell, where do we begin with you and the sloth? In a showcase of the adorable, the absurd and the so insanely funny, the actress revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that her fiancé Dax Shepard really outdid himself with her latest birthday gift.

For her 31st birthday this summer, Dax declared that he would give his lady "something no one else will ever get in their lifetime." But this gift wound up being something we all can share.

On the big day, Shepard informed Bell that her present had arrived and she should sequester herself for the reveal.

"I immediately was overcome and I thought, 'There's a sloth near ... it's close, it's gonna happen.' And I didn't know how to process that, because my entire life had been waiting for this moment," she told the daytime host Tuesday.

So Kristen Bell loves her a sloth. But — wait for it. 

"If I'm not between a 3 and a 7 on the emotional scale, I'm crying ... ," she explained. "I start to have a full-fledged panic attack."

Yes, the anticipation of the sloth proved too much to bear. She went fetal on their bed with the family dogs and erupted into full blown, little-girl-in-love-with-Bieber tears. Witness the magic in the video above.

As if that experience weren't emotional enough, Ellen proceeds to pull, well, an Ellen: She's perhaps decided to surprise Bell with an even cuter sloth. Reaction prediction? Bell goes "Sad Packer Fan."
