Kristen Bell is pregnant!

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Congrats to Kristen and Dax! Kristen is pregnant with her second child.

Kristen Bell is pregnant with her second child with husband Dax Shepard, ET can exclusively confirm!
Bell, 33, and Shepard, 39, are already parents to daughter Lincoln Bell Shepard, 1.

“I can confirm that Kristen and Dax are expecting their second child and a sibling for Lincoln,” a spokesperson for the couple tells ET. “The whole family is beyond excited.”

In February, the couple took the lead in taking action against photographers harassing celebrities’ children in order to take photographs by creating the “No Kids Policy,” rallying to get news outlets to stop sharing, buying or posting photos of celebrities’ children taken without consent.ET supported the cause immediately.

“The support of ET, the most influential national entertainment newsmagazine, is invaluable in the fight against paparazzi taking photos of the children of celebrities without consent. By creating a greatly diminished demand for these images, it is my hope that these children will no longer be subjected to being followed, yelled at, taunted and having their privacy invaded on a daily basis,” Bell said in February. “Hopefully, these children can return to their routines without having cameras relentlessly pointed at them. I am so grateful to Entertainment Tonight for helping us pave the way on this issue…”

Bell and Shepard have been married since October 2013.

Redbook Interview

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Your No Kids Policy calls for the media to stop publishing paparazzi photos of celebrity children. How has it affected your and Lincoln’s life?

It’s affected us quite a bit, actually. We simply aren’t followed anymore. We have peace, quiet, and the ability to be a normal family out and about in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

Were you surprised that people were so respectful of it?

The media machine can be a monster, and I didn’t know if consumers would respond to a plea like this. I’m the first to admit how few people it actually affects. But being one of them, and my child being one of them, I felt it was important and was overjoyed by how many compassionate mothers, parents, and consumers of entertainment media felt like they would draw a line at harassment of children.

Have you gotten feedback from any other celebs on how this has affected their families?

Yes, I’ve had quite a few people say it’s quite literally changed their day-to-day lives because their child isn’t as paranoid, since they’re not being followed by groups of strangers. It’s also impacted them for the better, because they’re finally allowed to be normal during the day. Michelle Williams has told me it’s made quite a difference, which makes me very grateful because I think she’s gotten the brunt of a lot of it. Jennifer Garner has said it’s made a difference. Hearing those kinds of things and knowing how much worse their kids have gotten it makes me very happy.

When Dax wrote a Huffington Post blog about the policy, he said that before you two had Lincoln, the issue wasn’t even on your radar. How else has your life changed since becoming a mom?

Having a child has provided perspective on every choice I make. Whether it’s what I’m eating, or how I’m spending my time, or how I’m relating to other people, it occurs to me that everyone I meet is somebody’s child. And I know that sounds corny, but it makes a difference when you’re angry at someone in traffic. It makes a difference when someone has an attitude with you. You cut them a little bit of slack because you have more compassion.

Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about attachment parenting. How do you feel about it?

I don’t know what that is, really, or the research or results behind it. But I’ve taken a very casual approach, and we didn’t co-sleep other than the first few weeks. Lincoln sleeps wonderfully on her own and likes being in her crib by herself, and I let her breastfeed until she decided she was done. I definitely value giving her alone time so that when she inevitably isn’t the center of everyone’s universe when she gets a little bit older, it doesn’t feel like the rug is pulled out from underneath her.

Last year, you tweeted about breastfeeding pumps backstage at the CMT Awards. How do you feel about everyone being up in arms about breastfeeding in public?

Get over it! They’re just boobs! Calm down. They’re under our shirt whether you’re looking at them or not.

Accurate. And since having Lincoln, you’ve gone from being a vegan to a vegetarian. Is she a vegetarian, too?

No, she’s still a baby, so we don’t know what she eats yet. But I don’t plan on raising her in any specific way. I plan on letting her make her own choices.

We have to talk about Frozen. This movie has been so huge and has exceeded everyone’s expectations. What is it that made it strike such a nerve with people?

I don’t know that you can ever really identify what the catalyst is when something is a mega-success. Malcolm Gladwell may be the only one who would be able to answer that. But I think it has something to do with it being a modernized love story. There is really no Prince Charming. It’s about modern-day girls who are quirky, goofy, have flaws, and are trying to get along. It’s a very honest battle that we all deal with every day: Do you choose love or do you choose fear?

What’s the one thing people don’t know about the movie that they should?

That “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” was pulled right after it was written, about a year and a half before Frozen came out, and only put back in by the skin of its teeth.

Why did they put it back in?

Because the way that animation is written, there is sort of a road map to where the songs fall at certain climax points. You aren’t supposed to really have more than seven or eight songs in there—this is how all animated Disney movies work. They had an opening song, “The Frozen Heart,” and they felt that “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” was another opening song, so they pulled it. But right at the very last minute, they thought it was too good and put it back in.

Kristen Bell Says No Kids Policy Has Already Changed Lives

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s no kids policy was a call to action for not just publications, but also consumers. Earlier this year the couple rallied to get news outlets to stop sharing, buying or posting photos of celebrities’ children taken without consent. Armed with friends who felt similarly and a new nickname for the paparazzi — “pedorazzi” — outlets like People Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider” jumped on board. According to Bell, only a few months have made a huge difference.

“I’ve heard from a couple different people who certainly get stalked much more significantly than we do that it’s quite literally changed their day to day lives with their kids,” Bell said to The Huffington Post over the phone. “I’m a firm believer that all we have is our collective consciousness. Moms especially, but parents and informed consumers just decided it was a line that shouldn’t be crossed. We’ve started to see the results and I’m very grateful for it. I think it makes for a more positive media monster.”

Bell and Shepard have also asked fans to boycott magazines and websites that run pictures of “celebrity children” as a way of changing the cyclical paparazzi culture. “No parent should feel like their child is being taken advantage of because of the choices they made on their career paths,” Bell said. “The basis of the issue is keeping strangers away from children, whether they have cameras or not.”

The recent CMT Awards Host said she’d so much rather focus on the “fun interviews” that ask questions about if she’ll be in the “Frozen” musical (“If they invite us!”), her new role as Sheila in “Hair” at the Hollywood Bowl (“It’s such a quick way to get back on stage”) and her new creative position at Lipton Iced Tea. As part of the company’s campaign to “Win an Extra SUN-day,” Bell helped produce a three short videos celebrating down time.

The entire production will play three performances on Aug. 1, 2, and 3 at the Hollywood Bowl.

Packed with songs like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine,” and “I Got Life,” Hair remains one of Broadway’s most groundbreaking musicals, linking musical theater with the 1960s hippie counterculture in a way that has earned the show synonymy with the decade when it comes to the stage.
Nudity TBD.

Kristen Bell Goes Solo to Host the CMT Music Awards

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Kristen Bell will resume her duties as host of the biggest party of the year on June 4 at the 2014 CMT Music Awards. The actress will try to keep its wild guests in line for the third consecutive time.

“It’ll definitely be as cool as the third time I threw a house party,” Bell quipped to CMT Hot 20 Countdown.

She co-hosted the awards show with Toby Keith in 2012 and Jason Aldean in 2013, but things will be different this year because Bell will be the sole host.

“You know, it’s a safety net to have someone up there for sure,” she admitted. “But it’s also far from the hardest job in the world. I have a teleprompter and wonderful writers behind the show, and the show is always produced in such a way that it’s so fun and fan-oriented that I think there’s kind of no way we can go wrong. … I think the way they’re lining up the show this year and the amount of cool surprise guests and acts, I think it should be a pretty cool show.”

Bell is currently starring as Jeannie Van Der Hooven in the third season of Showtime’s House of Lies. Earlier this year, she reprised the title role in the film Veronica Mars and also lent her voice to Frozen, the acclaimed Disney animated feature.

Taking a break during preproduction for the CMT Music Awards, the actress admitted to being excited about heading back to Nashville for a show she says is unlike any other.

“It’s a lot more fun, I think, that country music has such a storytelling aspect,” she said. “It’s like you’re talking directly to someone, so it’s like there’s this extra layer of humanity. Not to sound dramatic, but it’s true. I think country music is very much about the fans, and that’s kind of how the show feels. It feels like a big party with a lot of friends and a lot of love.”

Join the party with CMT, Bell and country’s hottest acts on June 4 at 8 p.m. ET, and catch CMT Hot 20 Countdown this Saturday and Sunday (May 31-June 1) at 11 a.m. ET/PT.
