The “House of Lies” actress was invited at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday. During the interview, Kristen Bell explained viewers why she went through a birthday meltdown on her 31st anniversary. Apparently, the actress was very impressed by her father’s gift and she started crying before she even knew what it was.
If it hadn’t been for the video footage that Bell brought on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, we wouldn’t have believed her confession. According to the artist’s declarations, Bell’s father brought a sloth at her 31st birthday party, so she started crying because she was too excited.
The sloth made an unexpected entrance into Kristen Bell’s house. She was sitting with her family in the living room when she suddenly heard a knock at the door. Her family sent her into the back room of the house, so she could not see the present, but she, nevertheless, guessed what her father would bring her. As soon as she realized that she was going to see a real sloth for the first time in her life, Bell was overcome by tears.
As weird as this may be, the actress confessed in a previous interview this year that she is a huge fan of the furry animals. Moreover, the actress searches the terms “baby sloths” on the Internet several times a week. Although she can’t explain why she is so obsessed with these animals, Kristen Bell told reporters that she considers them the most beautiful creatures on Earth. “There’s nothing cuter than a baby sloth… OK, maybe a slow Loris. Maybe. On a good day,” she added.
The interview was followed by a brief video recorded by Bell’s father while she was crying on the bed. Images show that the actress was not lying when she said she was affected by the sloth’s arrival as she can barely withhold her tears and hiccups.
Ellen DeGeneres wanted to test Bell’s reactions, too. The comedian told Kristen that her team brought a sloth on the studio, so the 32-year-old actress was overcome once again by emotions. Luckily, it was just a joke and Bell had no reason to get dramatic.
