O’Doul’s, the drink that tastes like beer, but isn’t beer! O’Doul’s has been around since 1990, and it’s a great option for people who don’t do booze. Like Dax Shepard, who has been sober for 16 years. Or Lincoln and Delta Shepard, his kids, who also apparently like to toss back an ice-cold ‘Doulies every once in a while.
People says Dax Shepard recently had a bad motorcycle accident which he talked about on his podcast, Armchair Expert. The 45-year-old actor and genius decision-maker revealed that while on a racetrack in California, he decided to really go for it. As you can expect, it went poorly. He was thrown from the two-wheeled beast and broke several bones. Who do you think you are? George Clooney? I guess with Dax and wife Kristen Bell at each other’s throats, risking his life on the track is better than risking it at home.
It doesn’t take an Emma Stone-in-Aloha to know that white actors should never play a character outside of their own race. But it’s a different situation when it comes to animated voice work, where it’s not uncommon for a white actor to voice a non-white character, Like a white guy currently provides the voices for two Black characters and a Hispanic woman in the Family Guy universe. And recently, Hank Azaria announced he will no longer voice Apu on The Simpsons due to Apu being a stereotype. Both Jenny Slate and Kristen Bell voice Black characters on animated TV shows. And even though their characters aren’t at all problematic like Apu, both Jenny and Kristen have also decided to step away from those characters.
I feel like we’ve been hearing entirely too much about Kristen Bell during this pandemic. It’s like Kristen, Chrissy Teigen, and Alicia Silverstone are in a lifelong bet over who can be the biggest oversharer. First Kristen informed everyone about her and husband Dax Shepard being “at each other’s throats” during isolation, then she let it slip about how her five-year-old still uses diapers, then she lent her face to that White Celebrities Care PSA last week. And if you thought Kristen was done talking about race, you were wrong!
Coronavirus begat Gal Gadot asking the Tone Deaf Avengers to Imagine a world where irony does not exist. Not to be outshone, for the occasion of the Black Lives Matter movement, we will be subjected to a barrage of actors emoting about racism while serving black and white Stanislavsky turtleneck Inside The Actors Studio earnestness. In a video for a new initiative called I Take Responsibility, “a cadre of stars staring directly into cameras as they pledge to take responsibility for how they’ve perpetuated racism or allowed it to go on in their presence.” (via The Hollywood Reporter). But don’t get too excited, nobody gets too specific. But we do get to hear Justin Theroux take responsibility for “every not so funny joke,” something you’ll never hear from me! #ITakeNoResponsibilityWhatsoever
Never one to let an opportunity to talk about her totally normal family situation pass her by, the utterly relatable Cool Mom™ Kristen Bell is back in the headlines, only this time it’s not to tell everybody how much she love-hates her husband, Dax Shepard. Instead, she’s attempting to address the fallout as a result of her oversharing diaper mess that occurred on the latest episode of her EllenTube show #Momsplaining. You know, the one where she felt it necessary to tell the world that her 5-year-old daughter, Delta, still wears diapers?
Can you believe that? If that’s not some sneaky, underhanded shit right there. Why would you set up your kid like that? Kristen is probably just jealous that Delta and her 7-year-old sister, Lincoln, are the most mature individuals in that house. But probably not. Kristen just LOVES being a Cool Mom™ so much!
