Kristen Bell found herself a little bummed after her husband Dax Shepard kinda-sorta ruined "one of the best moments" of her life.
During her appearance on Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Good Place actress found herself recounting an unforgettable moment from DeGeneres' recent 60th birthday party, describing the scene as "a real who's who."
"There was a very nice dance floor," Bell, 37, shares. "And I have to thank you because I had one of the best moments of my life."
She goes on to recall how actress Melissa McCarthy got the party started. "Melissa McCarthy started the dance floor, demanding that everyone dance. And you listen when she talks to you," she notes. "I was just kind of getting into it, and all of a sudden I see J.Lo, you know, looking like J.Lo, so elegant."
Bell describes a real "Who, me?" moment where Jennifer Lopez signaled to her, asking her to dance.
"She gets up, we start dancing together, I'm freaking out," the actress shares. "I'm like, 'I'm dancing with J.Lo, I'm dancing with J.Lo.' I'm like, hitting her butt -- it's amazing. She didn't mind, it was consensual."
That's when Bell's experience with the iconic superstar started to go south.
"But then, my husband sees, and he came over, and he kinda c**kblocked me," she confesses of Shepard, 43. "Sorry, he did. I'm sure from his perspective, he was like, 'My wife's dancing with J.Lo, that's so cool!' But he came over, and we were both like, 'No, man. No.' He kinda ruined my vibe."
The star also shared a few details from the highly anticipated Frozen sequel, scheduled for release in 2019, in which she will reprise her voiceover role as Princess Anna.
“I have recorded the movie,” she reveals of Frozen 2. “There will be edits before it’s finished. I know the songs, I know the story -- it’s very good!”
The original Frozen film, which also featured the voices of Idina Menzel, Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff, came out in 2013 and earned more than $1.2 billion worldwide.
