Kristen Bell Explains Medical Condition and Pool Gloves


  • What about when u shower or bath your kids. Do you wear them then as well???

  • I can relate to this. I used to do a summer camp and we would take the kids swimming and I could not touch their hands for the same reason.

  • Sounds like a sensory processing disorder. I love her

  • Definitely a sensory processing disorder

  • Wow I’m the same way!!! I always thought it was just me. I can’t stand the feeling even when it’s my own hands. It literally gives me the worst feelings

  • Well better not sweat in these gloves. 😂 will give you pruney fingertips, too.

  • Mine isn’t that bad where I get sick but I have a “tick” with my fingers (that’s what the therapist called it) and it freaks me TF out.

  • I have an issue with glass!! I can’t touch glass, the way it feels makes me cringe and I have to rub my hands on my pants or something to get rid of the feeling. Nobody understands and it’s just glass that bothers me

  • Same tbh.

  • I have this problem but for more textures than just water.

  • Uncontrollable death 😂😂😂

  • Sounds like a similar disorder to misophonia - its a sensory disorder that no one talks about. I feel the pain!!

  • ME!!!!!

  • That's how I feel about belly buttons...

  • I have skin texture senstivity too.mine hasnt been diagnosed either

  • My husband is the exact same way! He will walk around with his hands held out and not touch anything til they got back to normal

  • I shower in gloves.

  • Her brain is like... DuuwhhhdeRrrDEeedeeder ya know uuuhhuurrrffff f f dada drrruuuuumb dumb dumb🤦😵

  • I’m suffering from uncontrollable death

  • Omg I know how Kristen feels

  • Yasssss I have this and have had since I was born!!!!

  • That is my sister and my dad. They can’t touch ANYTHING when they get out of the pool. It helps if you have lotion or aloe Vera.

  • We are all easily diagnosing her in the comments. If she went to a psychiatrist they might tell her she has ocd.



  • Doesnt everyone feel that way it

  • Can we set up an experiment where she touches a wet Howie Mandel?

  • This is such a real thing!!

  • I’m the same way

  • It's similar to people that can't stand the feeling of metal in their mouths or can't stand the sound of fingernails scratching on a chalk board.

  • This is me with specific fabrics and dry hands and/or if my hands are dry

  • Omg! I know they’re making fun of her but I have this same thing and I thought I was the only one!! I cant grab a towel, touch anyone or even wash or touch my hair if I’ve been in the bath or pool or lake. I get panicky and literally get chills and freak out if my fingers get pruned, almost like the nails on a chalkboard sensation x1000. I sit in the bath with my hands out of the water. The only way i can describe it is that they feel hyper sensitive and vulnerable and something in my brain tells me that if i touch something rough or textured with my pruney fingers, that my skin will peel off. Now that I’m reading this back, i sound insane, but it’s my only major fear or aversion and I’ve never heard of someone else having it!

  • Has she not looked into a sensory processing disorder???

  • Wait till she gets wrinkles...not that long till then 🙄

  • i have this issue too

  • What about...toes. They get pruney

  • Ok for real I honestly thought I was the only person in the world .... I get serious anxiety if my hands are in water to long I can't stand the feeling of my water soaked fingers touching anything .... ill keep my hands above water when swimming. ....

  • His laugh is annoying 💀

  • Oh my gosh. I get that feeling when I touch metal,like certain metals make me literally gag- almost barf, and send a shiver down my spine.

  • mine’s with feet too, anyone else?


  • Im one of those ten people. Lol. I hate it. Haha

  • hes being mean making fun of her phobia

  • I have this same problem!!!

  • I can't use other peoples gloves, can't use them I'm not putting my hand in someone else's gloves I dont know what in them.

  • OMG I have this too!

  • I litteraly have the same problem! I hate when o5her fingertips touch my finger tips!

  • I'm surprised shes not like that with her toes as well...

  • I totally understand! I have a similar, but different problem. I actually can't tolerate touching anything with pruny hands though. I get out of the water before my hands get wrinkly. I also carry lotion with me to the pool just in case I stay in too long. I have an awful, extremely uncomfortable "nails on chalkboard" cringey feeling if I accidentally touch anything dry with pruny hands (like a towel).

  • This is called sensory overload, my dudes.

  • I USED TO BE LIKE THIS WHEN I WAS A KID!! I got over it, but sometimes it bothers me


  • My little brother is the same way!! Couldn’t do his homework after showering until his fingers weren’t pruney

  • I have a severe phobia of touching hands or rather mine being touched. I get all shakey and have panic attacks if a stranger grabs my hand. So it's not precisely the same but I've met tons of people with hand related phobias.

  • SAME KRISTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • The weird thing is.... I can understand this fear she has?

  • Lmao she’s so cute!

  • I have trypophobia and even saying the word makes my skin crawl

  • if that's your only problem honey... then you're good lmao

  • My friend doesn’t like the feeling of her own pruney fingers

  • I can see her annoyance at Jimmy's ignorance

  • kimmel is one bouncy laugher 1:55


  • I have this exact thing!!!

  • I have a similar issue. It’s not pruney fingers. It’s all slight touches on certain parts of my arms and hands


  • I kind of relate 🤷🏻‍♀️. If I wash my hands and my hands are slightly wet and I touch paper or something similar I just want to scream and throw up. Sounds crazy but oh well 😂

  • I saw the gloves and thought it might me Raynaud’s syndrome... Nope, just a fear of pruny fingers

  • When that’s your biggest concern in the world.... smh just sad.

  • "Uncontrollable death" HAHAAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Sensory processing disorder...a lot of people have at least one of these, whether it be food textures, touching certain textures, light and sound. Also almost always effects ppl who are on the autism spectrum, but a bit more extreme.


  • I have something very similar it’s not exactly the pruney finger part that makes me uncomfortable but it feels like my skin gets chapped or instantly dry after being wet. I’m constantly moisturizing my skin but my whole life I’ve hated doing dishes or getting my fingers wet because of the dryness I’ve felt after

  • 'Call your doctor if you're experiencing uncontrollable death' lmao

  • I have a phobia of multiple little holes next to each other, as I'm writing this I'm starting to get chills about it BLEAAGHHH

  • Yoooo i have this but with things like sandpaper, rough cement, grainy things, etc. I used to take metal shop and people figured this out and would rub sanpaper together in front of me and i would throw up ):

  • Finally someone who understand me

  • A great way she won’t get any tan lines: they invented tanning gloves for equestrians so that we won’t get those amazing white hands while riding outdoors. Just transfer it to the pool gloves;)

  • I love how she’s not ashamed of showing her neurotic side. And why would she, it’s part of who she is :-)

  • I am the same omg I hate it so much!! It makes me feel sick

  • *undiagnosed and yet to be discovered medical condition*

  • I'm one of those 10!!!!

  • Pruny hands on a towel, oh god I’m getting chills

  • It’s a psychological condition. And it’s called OCD lmaon

  • I have this ! Omg

  • Imagine when she’s older and has to deal with this all the time

  • I have a phobia on velvet fabric stuff. Can't touch it.

  • I hate oil on my hands even lotions .... gross 😟🤗😣🤮

  • My phobia is kinda the same, I just cant touch clothes or fabrics of any kind while my fingers are "pruny"

  • Who else cane here to see if anyone else had the finger thing jajajaja

  • I get that feeling when I touch cotton balls 😫

  • I AM ALSO A SUFFERER OF PRUNEY FINGER PHOBIA!! Your not alone!! I seriously cannot touch anything with pruney fingers. The texture (even just thinking about it) makes me feel sick! I might invest in some scuba gloves too😂😂

  • Nice try, Kristen. We all know you’re wearing gloves to cover your magic ice powers

    • Klaudia Kacina Oh I know that, just making a joke haha

    • Julianna Kopa I laughed but she voiced Anna not Elsa 😅

  • Oh em gee I’m the same!!😂😂 i cannot believe I’ve found another person like this 😂

  • I know someone like that

  • She sounds like female ASD

  • I hate it to that's why I hate dishes. But it's not that bad that I cant touch others I just dont bbn like the feeling but I can deal

  • But what about toes? 🤔

  • This is a sensory disorder
