'Couples Retreat' actress Kristen Bell says the secrets to her successful relationship with Dax Shepard are hugs, playing board games and honesty

Kristen Bell loves having "snuggle parties" with Dax Shepard.

The 'Couples Retreat' actress, who has been dating Dax for almost two years, revealed the secrets to a successful relationship are lengthy hugs, playing board games and honesty.

She told Women's Health magazine: "It's important to talk about your deepest, darkest fears and feelings. Your partner should hear your most embarrassing insecurities, because once you say them out loud, you've created a safe zone. A snuggle party can fix anything - it's true.

"There is almost nothing, barring a natural disaster, that I would let eat into my time at home, playing Scrabble with Dax."

Kristen admits dating a fellow comic star can be difficult as she often competes with Dax to prove who is funnier.

The 29-year-old actress, who stars alongside Dax in new movie 'When in Rome', said: "We were trying to one-up each other. That's what we do at home, too. It's like, 'Wait - watch me do this funny bit.' 'No, watch me do this funny bit!' "
