Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are the definition of #couplegoals. Along with being great parents to five-year-old Lincoln and three-year-old Delta, they are extremely close as husband and wife. Once Dax even had to nurse from Kristen's breast, so when the Internet came for her this week after learning she smokes pot weekly, he was quick to defend her. The haters' issue is that Dax is sober and has been for 14 years.
During a chat with Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, Kristen admitted to vaping weed weekly as a way to unwind after long days, saying, "Weed rules. Weed is my drug of choice, for sure." She also said that while she's never done cocaine, she feels like she "would maybe want to do it once" before she dies.
The trolls came out to state that she was being disrespectful to her husband of five years. Among those questioning the behavior was the daytime show The Talk, which tweeting about it and got a response from Dax.
The 43-year-old actor replied to the post, "That would be like a diabetic expecting their partner to never eat dessert. Get real!"
Meanwhile, in a response to someone else's tweet, he addressed his wife's potential coke use, writing, "Yeah, she could most definitely NOT do lines in front of me."

The tweets started a debate on the issue, and one commenter compared what Kristen was doing to a partner getting drunk in front of an alcoholic. Dax felt differently:
Well it's different in that drinking is much more dangerous.— dax shepard (@daxshepard) September 19, 2018
In fact, Shepard is so comfortable with his sobriety, he's encouraged Kristen to have a party where she and her friends do ecstasy. Hear more from Kristen by listening to the WTF podcast.
