Kristen Bell, Real Life ‘Frozen’ Princess, Just Saved Olaf Actor Josh Gad’s Parents From Hurricane Irma
In Disney’s Frozen, Olaf the snowman helps save Princess Anna from freezing to death at one point, warming her by the hearth while risking turning into a puddle of slush himself. This week, the real life actress behind the adorable princess had the chance to return the favor—and boy, did she ever!
Kristen Bell was busy filming her new movie Like Father in Orlando this week when she became stranded due to Hurricane Irma. Unable to evacuate in time, she became holed up at her hotel, the Swan and Dolphin at Walt Disney World Resort. Luckily, circumstance allowed her to help Josh Gad in a major way, whose parents and extended family live in Florida.
On Friday, the actress arranged for Gad’s “entire family”—his mom, dad, brothers, sister-in-law, niece and nephew—to stay at the hotel.
“You are an angel,” Gad tweeted to his large hearted co-star. “I adore you.”

On Instagram, Gad continued to thank Bell, sharing a photo of her hanging out with his parents during the storm and writing, “They don’t make them like this girl…You are truly an angel sent from above.”
