Kristen Bell Shares Cute, Never-Before Seen Wedding Photos!

Comic-Con International 2016 - Day 1

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.

Kristen Bell Talks Mental Illness: “There’s Nothing Weak About Struggling With Mental Illness.”

The 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Hear, hear!

On Tuesday, Kristen Bell opened up to Motto about battling depression  and coping with mental illness, and honestly, she talks very openly and specifically about it and in a vulnerable way that you don’t read about often. Props.

“I felt plagued with a negative attitude and a sense that I was permanently in the shade. I’m normally such a bubbly, positive person, and all of a sudden I stopped feeling like myself. There was no logical reason for me to feel this way. I was at New York University, I was paying my bills on time, I had friends and ambition — but for some reason, there was something intangible dragging me down.”

Luckily, Kristen’s mom encouraged her to go to therapy and that there’s no shame in that. But she didn’t get up the courage to talk about things until she got more perspective. She said:

“I didn’t speak publicly about my struggles with mental health for the first 15 years of my career. But now I’m at a point where I don’t believe anything should be taboo… Here’s the thing: For me, depression is not sadness. It’s not having a bad day and needing a hug. It gave me a complete and utter sense of isolation and loneliness. Its debilitation was all-consuming, and it shut down my mental circuit board. I felt worthless, like I had nothing to offer, like I was a failure. Now, after seeking help, I can see that those thoughts, of course, couldn’t have been more wrong.”

The Veronica Mars alum first discussed the topic earlier this month when she revealed she’s been crippled by the thought of not being liked. But, she’s hoping to end the stigma about depression by opening up.

“Anxiety and depression are impervious to accolades or achievements. Anyone can be affected, despite their level of success or their place on the food chain. It’s a knee-jerk reaction to judge people when they’re vulnerable. But there’s nothing weak about struggling with mental illness. You’re just having a harder time living in your brain than other people. And I don’t want you to feel alone.”

Proud of you, girl!

Kristen Bell: “Motherhood Is Unmissable!”

"The Judge" - Los Angeles Premiere

Babys n’ Bells!

Kristen Bell rocks it as Good Housekeeping’s cover girl, but though she seems sweet, she definitely has the maturity and forethought that comes with being an excellent mom! Check out some of the interview segments:

On regular couples therapy: “I thought I had this life thing down pat when I met Dax. I didn’t realize that I needed a much bigger toolbox to have confrontations and disagreements with people. You do better in the gym with a trainer; you don’t figure out how to cook without reading a recipe. Therapy is not something to be embarrassed about. … I don’t mind advertising a healthy marriage. I’m trying, just like everyone else.”

She loves being a mom: “I wasn’t positive I wanted kids. But I can now confirm having them is absolutely unmissable. Before we had the girls, I asked a few people in my life who are annoyingly blunt and honest on every level if we should, knowing that if it wasn’t worth it, they’d have the balls to say, ‘Listen, don’t. Live your life.’ But across the board, everyone said it was unmissable. When Lincoln came out, at first I was like, ‘Eh, what do I do with it? I can take it home?’ But when I started breastfeeding, the oxytocin or my hormones or hundreds of thousands of years of evolution kicked in. I didn’t want to let her go. Having kids feels like that first seventh-grade crush that overwhelms every molecule in your body, but it’s permanent.”

On having more kids: “Our life has taken a turn, but not in a bad way,” she continues. “I yearn for more one-on-one time and romantic outings with my husband, but the kids have added a lot more excitement and a different kind of fun.” Will they have more? Nope: “I loved being pregnant — but I don’t want to be outnumbered!”

Motherhood is karma: “I never understood my mom until I had kids. When she would look at me like I was the first drop of water she’d seen at the end of a desert trip and go, “You will never understand how much I love you,” I would go, “God, get away! Enough!” Even in my 20s, I just thought, “You’re so dramatic and overly sentimental.” Now I look at my kids that way and think, “Wow, this is a cycle.” Lincoln won’t understand it until she decides to have kids … that’s just the way it’s supposed to be. Motherhood right-sized everything for me. I’m happier, and I was pretty happy before.”

Kristen Bell Hopes Delta And Lincoln Will Be Frozen Fans

The 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Kristen Bell is very proud of her voice acting in the movie ‘Frozen‘ and she hopes her daughters, Lincoln, 2, and Delta, 11 weeks, will appreciate it and love the movie themselves.

She shared, “I hope I don’t show them the movie and they both go, ‘Eh.'”  Kristen admits it’ll be fun to show them her work at some point down the road.   “It will be exciting to show them Frozen one day because it’s a story of sisters. When they both start watching TV, I think it will be a very special day in our household.”

Even though it’s only been three months, Kristen says that the two Shepard girls are getting on well.  “My girls get along great, which I’m really grateful for.”

On staying relaxed about losing baby weight: “I [also] feel like I’ve maintained a healthy attitude.  Choosing not to stress about my baby weight helps me lose baby weight. If you’re stressed about your baby weight, you’ll hold onto it. It’s a weird catch-22.”
