"We've gotten a lot older and it's evident," the 36-year-old actress shared. "We've changed a ton but for the better."

"Our relationship was turbulent when we started," Bell continued. "But there was a very strong attraction that was obviously physical but also emotional, mental, intellectual, and we worked through a lot of our own problems to get to a really good marriage."

And it has to help that they share some fun hobbies!

Bell discussed how she and Shepard skipped the recent Golden Globes after parties to get in on some Settlers of Catan.

"It's just a really fun board game to play with your friends," she explained. "It's slightly dorky but I'm proud of that. It's a lot of strategy so it can make or break friendships."

"We fight a lot when we play it," Bell joked. "You see the other side of someone."

And of course, the couple's two children -- 3-year-old Lincoln and 2-year-old Delta -- also keep them pretty busy, and Bell confessed that it's kind of remarkable her Rasario jumpsuit made it to the awards show without turning into a big mess as a result of the little ones.

"My kids were all over me but somehow I managed to leave the house not covered in food," she shared, joking, "That's not a secret but something I'm quite proud of."

Way to go, Kristen!
