Actress Kristen Bell is currently filming her upcoming movie, “Like Father,” in Orlando, Florida, and “didn't have the option to leave,” so ahead of Hurricane Irma, she stocked up on supplies:
Last run to the store for #irma hurricane holdover prep while bracing down in orlando- we didn't have the option to leave so here we are. Just doing our best and trying to stay positive but cautious, and trying to help those who need help prepping. Every person i passed today was assisting someone else- #neighborshelpingneighbors - it was beautiful to see. Sad that a hurricane has to bring out the best in everyone- but happy that the community will be holding hands through this. Im grateful to Gary and the team at @swandolphin in epcot for helping us feel safe while we get through this together.
She added that “every person I passed today was assisting someone else,” and when the opportunity came for “Frozen's” Anna to help her snowman sidekick Olaf, she did.
On Friday, actor Josh Gad posted on Instagram that the actress “literally saved” his family:
So @kristenanniebell literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from #hurricaneirma . 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. Thank you Kristin. You are truly an angel sent from above. And thank you @ewablueeyes for bother her when I asked you not to!!!!
Along with a photo of Bell and his parents, Gad wrote on Instagram that when she learned his family was stranded in Florida, she got not only his parents, but also his brothers, sister-in-law, niece, and nephew a room at the hotel she was staying in.
“They don't make them like this girl,” he wrote. “You are truly an angel sent from above.”
Irma has been downgraded to a Category 3 and is expected to hit Florida on Sunday. According to CNN, about 6.3 million people were ordered to evacuate from Florida.
