“daxshepard: My bride wears gloves in the pool because she hates the feeling of pruney finger tips on skin. #Hollyweird#iloveher”
On Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, Kristen Bell confirmed her husband’s photo is real and she does wear gloves in the pool – “cool scuba diving gloves” – because she feels like she is going to puke when touching skin with pruny fingers. The gloves, an idea/gift from her friend, takes care of the phobia for her and she loves that she can join in on the fun too, and keep her kids safe in the water.
Kristen’s husband Dax Sheperd talked about how she really,really hates pruny fingers, and the surprise it was to him after 11 years of being with her (married since 2013), on Jimmy Kimmel Live July 12:
“What I’ve been told thus far is she doesn’t like going to the pool,” he said, noting that the recent West Coast heat wave made her rethink her policy of sitting on the sidelines and watching their two children, Lincoln, 5; Delta, 3, splash around.
“She said, ‘Oh, I’m getting in,’ and I was like, ‘Oh! This is exciting!’ and she said, ‘I have to get my pool gloves,'” he recalled. “[I] come to find out that she has this weird phobia that when her fingertips are pruney, she doesn’t want to touch other people’s skin. That’s too much for her.”
