EXCLUSIVE: Kristen Bell Talks Parenting With Dax Shepard, Says There's No Good Cop or Bad Cop

By
While Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard star in a buddy cop movie, they don't use the "good cop, bad cop" interrogation technique in their home life.
The couple hit the red carpet on Monday night for the premiere of CHiPs in Los Angeles, California, and shared with ET's Denny Directo how they prefer to parent their two daughters, 3-year-old Lincoln and 2-year-old Delta.
"We have a dialogue with them where there are things that are acceptable and things that are not," Bell explained. "There's no bad cop enforcing anything. ...Everything is very calm in our household."

Shepard agreed, adding, "I don't know that anyone is laying down the law, but I'm probably more the disciplinarian."
Shepard, 42, wrote and directed the cop comedy CHiPs, which also stars Michael Pena, as well as his sister and brothers. "We always like to fill the places we work with people we love," Bell, 36, said of making the set a family affair.
However, when asked who'd he'd like to have a bromance with, Shepard admitted that Pena has some competition. "Brad Pitt is the ultimate dream, you know," he quipped. "I put Michael Pena tied with Brad Pitt for my bromance desires."
The red carpet also featured a few cast reunions. Shepard reunited with his onscreen wife from Parenthood, Joy Bryant, as well as Mae Whitman, who also stars in CHiPs. "I know Joy Bryant's coming because we were married, she has to -- my TV wife," he joked with ET. "Sometimes TV marriages last longer than real marriages."

Meanwhile, Bell was reuniting with her Boss co-star, Melissa McCarthy, and created some priceless photo ops.
