Kristen Bell, an actress best known for playing the title character on “Veronica Mars,” really love sloths. “I've been obsessed with sloths for as long as I can remember. They must be my spirit animal or something,” Bell recently told the Insider.
But now, thanks to an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” we know that when faced with the prospect of seeing a sloth, Bell freaks out.
Bell told DeGeneres her fiance Dax Shepard promised her an awesome present for her 31st birthday. On the big day, which took place back in July, Bell said, “I immediately was overcome and thought, 'There's a sloth near. There is a sloth here. It’s close. It’s gonna happen.”
Cut to a video of Bell sobbing tears of joy at the prospect of getting to meet a sloth.
Great, right? It’s worth mentioning that there are specific laws in each state about owning exotic animals like sloths. They’re actually illegal to purchase or own in the state of California, unless the owner has a permit or they were legally purchased before 1992, according to BornFreeUSA.org.
In an earlier interview on the Nooner podcast, where Bell told the exact same story, she said the sloth she met, named Melon, works in the film industry.
