In fact, it appears Kristen was actually lying in the background in her favorite purple two-piece. 

It wasn't just that photo which fans were falling over, however. In another, Kristen and her friends were enjoying a beer with none-other-than F1 driver, Daniel Ricciardo. Not that she mentioned that in the caption.

Kristen appeared to be enjoying herself with friends in Ojai, California, and it turns out plenty of fans called the town their home.

The actress recently celebrated her husband Dax Shepard's birthday at the beginning of the year too and wrote a touching tribute to him on Instagram.

"To the greatest husband and #dadbeast I could ever imagine," it read. "Laughing, snuggling and growing with you has been more enjoyable than anything I could have ever imagined for my life. 

"Your patience and commitment with our daughters is only bested by your patience and commitment with the hiccups. None of us deserve you. You are singular. Happy birthday, stud."
