Kristen Bell's 31st birthday was a dream come true — even though she spent part of it crying.

Here's the thing: The House of Lies star loves sloths — she Googles baby sloths multiple times a week.

But before he even brought the creature in, Bell sensed its presence and did what any sloth aficionado does during such a momentous event: have an emotional meltdown.
