Why Does Kristen Bell Wear Gloves in the Pool?

Kristen Bell Talks About the "Undiscovered Medical Condition" That Means She Wears Gloves in the Pool

Dax Shepard learned an interesting fact about Kristen Bell recently: she wears gloves in the pool. The always-adorable couple recently hung out by a pool, and while Kristen doesn't usually like to swim, it was so hot outside that she had to. She said, "I gotta get my pool gloves!" Dax explained during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in July. Never having seen these outdoor gloves before, Dax asked, "Doing some underwater welding? What are you talking about?!" It turns out Kristen really hates getting pruney fingers (same, to be honest).

When Kristen visited Jimmy a month later, she expanded on the story even more. Jimmy quizzed her on whether it's a phobia, and the actress explained (not completely seriously), "I would call it a very serious undiagnosed and yet-to-be-discovered medical condition that tens of people in America might also suffer from." She claims that the ridges in wet fingers make her want to throw up, but continued, "I'm not ashamed, because in my lifetime, I want to remove the stimga of the maybe 10 people who also suffer".

The gloves Kristen sports in the infamous photo are actually scuba gloves, which she received as a birthday gift from a girlfriend a couple of years ago. Everyone deserves a friend who knows them that well!
