Kristen Bell Always Wears Gloves In The Pool For The Strangest Reason

Parents / Dax Shephard Instagram

Just because someone is rich and famous, it doesn't mean they're perfect.

Now that almost every celebrity has a social media page, we get to know almost everything about their lives.

They seem to love sharing it, and fans aren't going to miss out on the opportunity to see what these famous faces are up to.

Many celebrities are shamed, judged, or called out on the things they believe in, but sometimes they do things that leave us confused.

Kristen Bell is known for her comedic roles in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, When In Rome, and The Boss, but she's actually equally as hilarious and quirky in real life.

She's not strange as some other Hollywood stars like Marlon Brando whose obsessed with farts or Jennifer Lawrence who loves to suck her thumb.

All Bell likes to do is wear gloves while swimming - and some people find that hilarious.

The mother-of-two has a phobia that compels her to cover her hands every time she goes into a pool.

Her husband, Dax Shepard, posted a photo of the 37-year-old actress wearing tight black gloves while swimming.

"My bride wears gloves in the pool because she hates the feeling of pruney finger tips on skin. #Hollyweird #iloveher," he captioned the picture.

Apparently Bell will not go swimming unless she has her special gloves on.

In a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Shepard explained:

"What I've been told thus far is she doesn't like going to the pool. 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. [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."

Many fans came to her defense, commenting "you're not alone."

"I HATE pruney fingers...but I haven't resorted to gloves. I just wander around the pool with my hands in the air."

"YES!!! Also i just might puke if someone's pruney hand grabs mine."

"I hate that feeling too! Not weird...You do you boo."

One person wrote that she should remove the gloves and embrace this "evolutionary function."

"Science tell us that the reason our fingers get 'pruney' is because underwater creatures are able to grip better with an undulating surface. This phenomenon is a left over evolutionary function. You better tell her to remove those gloves in case she needs to securely grab 'something' underwater!"

Others just had a good laugh.

"Omg I can’t even! 🤣 I just laughed so damn hard at this picture, made my day!"

"Lol great idea, but she also might need an #occupationaltherapist."

"Strange, but at least she’s cute."

This isn't the first time Bell has had people confused...

A few months ago, the actress revealed that she breastfed her husband out of desperation. For more on the story, click here!
