Recently, Bell replied to a commenter who truly believed the actor “couldn’t f***ing” stand” her husband.
“Every piece of news I see about them talks about how they just can’t fucking stand each other, constantly fight, now this dude is apparently objectifying her as well,” someone wrote on a Pop Culture Instagram about the couple, posted on Tuesday. “Just what’s the point? straight people are so tragic.”
Bell responded by saying that the two “adore each other.”
“We just try to be honest about how marriage, or companionship in any form, is hard sometimes,” she wrote. “You can’t always be in control, or right, and it’s important to us that we lead with the honesty of your ‘perfect match’ being a myth.”
“You gotta work hard to love yourself and love other humans,” the Bell continued.
Bell has said how both she and Shepard decided there was “no getting around” discussing their relationship due to their fame.
“We could try to take all questions about our relationship off the table for the rest of our lives, and just be incredibly boring, or we could sort of open the kimono — as they say — and allow people to see what our marriage is like,” Bell told E’s Daily Pop last year.
The couple’s latest disagreement involved a van with a detailed mural and let’s just say Bell was not too happy with it.
Shepard revealed on his show, the U.S. version of “Top Gear,” how he commissioned an artist to paint a portrait of himself and his wife on a van as an homage to the 1977 Chuck Norris movie, Breaker! Breaker!
“I’ve always loved those 70s muraled up vans. I’ve wanted one,” Shepard shared. “And my wife is pretty adamant that’s the one vehicle she doesn’t want in our driveway.”
“But she wasn’t thrilled with the level of ‘female empowerment’ that was depicted in that mural,” Shepard explained. “Understandably. And my kind of excuse was we had to honor the era in which this was popular. It didn’t fly.”
