I don't know about you, but I've missed Kristen Bell since Veronica Mars went off the air in 2007. Sure, she's had some memorable parts in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but I missed that scrappy super sleuth.
Luckily Bell is back in the public eye and even better, she's knocked up with fiancé Dax Shepherd's kid. I wasn't so sure about him until I started watching Parenthood, and now purely by association I kind of like the guy. That stupid show makes me cry just about every single time I watch it.
Anyway, Bell was on Ellen yesterday gabbing about being pregnant, like all celebrities do-what is it with that? Celebrities get pregnant and everyone wants to know what being pregnant is like for them. I imagine it's the same as it is for every other expectant mother, probably pretty uncomfortable and annoying.
When asked about whether or not she was worried about giving birth, Veronica Mars responded that she was not going the natural route of other celeb moms like Gisele.
"I've got nothing to prove. No way. I feel like when I arrive at the hospital I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back. And, I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it's over because I've seen the videos and it looks terrifying," she told Ellen.
However, she wasn't immune to falling into the celebrity trap of "being pregnant is great!" and other lies that keep the human race going. "'I've had an enjoyable pregnancy because I've had a lot of dopamine hormones. My self-esteem has never been higher,' she said. I look in the mirror and I think it's the reverse body dysmorphia because I can understand what my shape is but I see Brooke Shields."
Whatever. I'm glad Kristen Bell is back on the scene. I loved her Jenny Packham maternity look at the Globes Globes. She sort of did look like Brooke Shields.
Alright, I admit it. My love of Kristen Bell doesn't just come from Veronica Mars. It comes from sloths. I know, what am I talking about. Well, Kristen Bell loves sloths. For her 31st birthday, Dax surprised her by renting a sloth and Kristen totally lost it. The video of her sloth meltdown was aired on Ellen and went viral on You Tube. I highly recommend that you stop everything you are doing and watch it right now.
Here's to you, Kristen-many happy returns to you and Dax and congratulations on the baby. I'm looking forward to your return to the big or small screen. In the meantime, a glass of whiskey sounds pretty good.
