Josh Gad Says Kristen Bell "Literally Saved" His Family From Hurricane Irma


So, you've probably heard that millions of Florida residents are currently fleeing their homes right now in anticipation of Hurricane Irma.

5.6 Million Florida Residents Told To Evacuate Ahead Of Hurricane #Irma

And when Kristen Bell learned that her Frozen co-star Josh Gad's entire family was among those evacuees, she immediately stepped in to save the day.

Josh told the heartwarming story in an Instagram posted yesterday.

"So @kristenanniebell literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from #hurricaneirma," he wrote.

"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."

"They don't make them like this girl," he continued. "Thank you Kristin [sic]. You are truly an angel sent from above."

He concluded the post by joking that he'd originally asked his family not to bother Kristen:

And thank you @ewablueeyes for bother[ing] her when I asked you not to!!!!

Gad also posted the story on Twitter, where Bell quickly replied with a loving Frozen reference:

Kristen is currently in Florida filming a movie. When she found out she couldn't evacuate, she posted on Instagram that she was staying in her Orlando hotel and "trying to help those who need help prepping."

KBell, thanks for being awesome. Stay safe, Florida. ❤️❤️❤️
