Kristen Bell was at Comic-Con over the weekend to promote her new TV sitcom that premieres in September. It’s with Ted Danson and it’s called The Good Place (check out the trailer on YouTube). She’s also in Bad Moms, which looks terrible. Still, I’m glad she’s working because I think she’s great.
As part of the inevitable promo period, Bell did an interview with CBS and talked about her marriage to Dax Shepard. She even shared photos of their civil ceremony (they got married In October 2013, after DOMA got struck down. NICE WORK, you two). She’s only letting people see the pics now, because the two are pretty private, which I also like. Here’s some of what she told CBS, and you can watch the interview on their site.
On her success at 36
“I don’t deserve to be here. I worked hard, but I was also in the right place at the right time. And I’m really, really grateful for the jobs that I’ve had.”
On what she gets insecure about
“I feel stupid sometimes. That’s a truthful insecurity. I am around so many talented artists and intellectuals and creative people. I spend a lot of time with people that are smarter than me. So one of my truthful insecurities is that I feel stupid a lot.”
On her early career
“I wasn’t homely or awkward enough to play the awkward girl, but I wasn’t pretty enough to play the love interest. I was somewhere down the middle.”
On Veronica Mars
“Veronica Mars was the advice that high schoolers needed: ‘If you don’t fit in, make your own category.’”
On the importance of her family
“I always think, if I’m on my deathbed, what am I gonna be thinking about? And it won’t be some random movie I participated in, or some TV show. It will be my family.”
On her wedding with Dax
“We got married in a tiny room in the Beverly Hills courthouse, and it was still one of the best days of my life.”
Maybe you’re not the biggest fish, but that’s okay?”
“Those big fish sometimes have a real hard time. They can’t — I can still go to the grocery store. So I think I’m really happy with the size fish that I am.”
Here are photos that Kristen shared on CBS…they’re not the best, but they’ll do. Did I mention I love Kristen? She’s like the perfect version of a celeb I can imagine. Grounded, private but still open, and chill AF.
