Kristen Bell Literally Saved Josh Gad’s Family From Hurricane Irma, But That’s Not All She’s Done

Life lesson: Disney movies bring people together for the better, even the cast members themselves. As Hurricane Irma sweeps through Florida, Frozen star Josh Gad, who played Olaf, shared how costar Kristen Bell literally saved his family from the impending weather.

Cosmopolitan reports that Bell has been trapped in Florida for several days, forced to stay until Irma blows over. It turns out that everything truly does happen for a reason, as Gad proved via Instagram.

“So [Kristen] literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from Hurricane Irma,” Gad wrote, posting a photo of Bell with his parents. “When they were stranded in Florida, she got them a hotel room at her hotel in Orlando and saved them, my brothers, my sister-in-law and niece and nephew.”

“Thank you Kristen,” Gad continued. “You are truly an angel sent from above.”

If that wasn’t enough to convince you that Bell’s just as wonderful as she seems on the red carpet, she’s been busy on her own Instagram recapping her storm experience. She first posted a snapshot of herself gathering supplies with a volunteer. 

“Every person I passed today was assisting someone else,” Bell wrote alongside the picture. “Sad that a hurricane has to bring out the best in everyone, but happy that the community will be holding hands through this.”

It also looks like she’s helping other stranded folks stay happy and entertained. Another recent picture on her account shows Bell singing to a crowd with some impromptu back-up dancers. On her Twitter account, Bell has also been retweeting others’ tips for staying safe during the storm. 

It’s great to see Bell being so positive and helpful when Florida is facing such a distressing time. Here’s to those people that try to put on a happy face in times of crisis!
