Mary Poppins Quits — Kristen Bell on Funny or Die

I continue to be mystified by the many talents of Kristen Bell, who has become a formidable force since ‘Frozen,’ along with an awe-inspiring crusade against the paparazzi, which has been a large success. Thanks to Bell and her husband, Dax Shepard, many of the most popular magazines have stopped publishing pictures of children, and I’m sure there’s more to come. Bell has now expanded her portfolio into parody, with a sketch on ‘Funny or Die,’ dedicated to the horrible state of minimum wage. WATCH BELOW.

Kristen Bell’s Interview With Women’s Health Magazine — Gushes About Dax Shepard

I have to compliment Kristen Bell for her interview prowess. She’s a funny chick, and she’s not afraid to turn a serious interview upside down. Read below for quotes from her interview with Women’s Health Magazine.

Kristen on butts

“My favorite things on the planet. I want two round cupcakes, always. I kicked my buns and abs sets into high gear when I knew I’d have to be in my bra and underwear on House of Lies. But I don’t show my crack! All the Mr. Skins of the world are like, “ooh, Kristen gets naked!’ I’m like, ‘Dream on!’”

“If you had those beautiful chocolate bun-cakes, you’d show’em too, let’s be honest.”

Kristen on working with fiancé, Dax Shepard on their upcoming movie Outrun

“I would watch him walk back to the monitor and yell things such as ‘Action!’ or ‘Cut!’ and I’d just go, ‘And you expect me to work when you’re doing cute things around me all day? How am I supposed to focus?

Kristen on fiancé Dax Shepard’s cooking

He makes this delicious spaghetti dish… about twice a year. I wish he cooked more.[Actually] I don’t wish he cooked more. He’s a very good cook, but I’m quite territorial in the kitchen. It’s like, if I went outside and fixed the car, he’d be like, ‘Whaaat?’”

Kristen on vegan food

“[It’s] fart powder. [It] makes you gassy.”

Kristen on her and fiancé Dax Shepard’s best friends

“We decided to create the first four-way marriage, where our couple has married their couple.”

“We nauseate ourselves with how mushy we are.”

Why Can The CW Pick Actors But Not Shows?

Leighton Meester is getting a lot of attention for her new film with Gwenyth Paltrow, Country Strong, and I can’t help but wonder if the people at The CW are happy.  Gossip Girl is Meester’s career launching role, and it gets a lot of media buzz, but no ratings.  That’s always baffled me, especially considering that I religiously watch Gossip Girl, despite falling outside their target tweenie demographic.  But Meester isn’t the only actress from The CW to become extremely successful.  What about Blake Lively?  She also began on Gossip Girl, and she’s now had three major movie roles (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Town, and The Green Hornet).  And let’s not forget Kristen Bell.  Bell’s career began on Veronica Mars, which also got press attention but failed in the ratings.  Like Meester and Lively, Bell has now moved on to major movie roles.  So what’s the problem?  Is it a CW marketing problem?  Perhaps.  When ratings don’t correspond with the quality of your show, you have to question marketing and promotion.  Plus, you’d think if your that good at picking talent, you’d be equally as good at running your network as a whole.
