Posted on Written by adminComments Off on Kristen Bell’s Daughter Wasn’t “Buying This Whole Santa Claus Thing” — So She Told Her the Truth
At some point, any parent who celebrates Christmas will be asked that dreaded question: Is Santa Claus real? There is no right way to answer. If you say he doesn’t exist, you’re messing with the magic of the season. If you say he’s real, you’re telling what some might call a little white lie. These are all thoughts that ran quickly through Kristen Bell’s mind when her oldest daughter, Lincoln, confronted her about Kris Kringle at the age of three.
“She said, ‘I’m just not buying this whole Santa Claus thing. There’s no way he would be able to make it to every single house. You said there’s billions of people on the planet,’” Bell recalls in an interview with Woman’s Day. “At that moment, my heart kind of sank.”
Bell realized she had two options: lie to her little girl and send her out to play, or use this moment to teach her daughter that “when you feel in your gut that something stinks, question it.” She chose the latter.
“I pictured her in a more adult situation where she had a sinking feeling in her gut and wanted to ask the question,” Bell says. “Was I going to pat her on the head and go ‘Stop thinking about that, I already told you, it’s fine, believe me? Or would I want to produce the kind of person who goes ‘I’m sorry, I really do need more information on this?’”
After telling her daughter that she would “be honest with you if you’d like me to,” Bell revealed the truth about Santa. But she didn’t just throw up her hands like a criminal caught red-handed. Rather, she eased her child into the truth by telling her Santa Claus is “an imaginary game we play because it’s really, really fun.”
Her approach was simple, sweet, and still kind of magical. If the questions keep coming, take another tip from Bell and enlist the help of The Wonderful Truth About Santa Claus. The book tells the story of Saint Nicholas, a Christina bishop who is the basis for the modern-day Santa Claus. The book emphasizes how Saint Nicholas inspired people to give others gifts without asking for credit or putting their name on a tag. This, as Bell says, teaches people that “anyone can be a Santa Claus,” which she thinks makes her child less likely to spoil the myth for other kids.
As for her younger daughter Delta, Bells says she has “heard the rumors” that Santa Claus is merely a game, but still believes in the magical narrative.
“But when she says to me “Is this person a real human being?” I will have the same conversation with her as I did with Lincoln,” Bell says.
If you want to get Kristen Bell’s attention, might I suggest you transform into a fitness ball or a nutritional supplement, a back stretcher or a muscle roller on social media. “If I see it, I’m getting it,” the 39-year-old says of what could generally be referred to as wellness Instagram. “I can’t tell you how susceptible I am to it—I just want to try everything.”
It’s how she wound up with, to date, Yamuna Balls, resistance bands, gliding discs, foam rollers, KeVita drinks, Moon Juice Dust, powdered camel milk, Sun Potion adaptogens, and something called the Chirp Wheel+. “That algorithm works,” Kristen says, biting into a spinach salad at a café in Los Angeles.
We’ve just come from a grueling Pilates class at Studio Metamorphosis next door, where the star of this month’s Frozen II alternated between singing and grunting through planks, pikes, and lunges, and in one instance, gripped the high bars of the reformer and suspended her frame above the machine in a V shape.
Kristen is a muscular 5’1½”, but until this past year, she had never done one workout consistently. About a year ago, however, she found what she likes to call “Studio Morph,” and for the first time in her life, she fell in love with exercise.
“I’ve always felt mentally strong because I’m adept and can banter and hold my own in a good conversation,” says Kristen. “But I’ve never felt physically strong. I felt waifish…or pregnant. And I’m loving the fact that if we ever get attacked by ninjas, I would be a valuable asset.”
Ideally, she makes it to a class three times a week, usually with a friend. (After she brought writers from The Good Place, one texted her: “Kristen, what hospital do you typically go to after this class?”) It’s a challenging workout that incorporates cardio, circuit training, and CrossFit elements, and its benefits for Kristen are numerous.
“It’s about the muscle in my body. Having children obliterated my abdominal wall,” she says of giving birth to daughters Lincoln, 6, and Delta, 4. “Good night. That’s a wrap. And I thought, Well, it’s never going to come back. What do I need it for? I’m married. Spanx exist. You don’t get everything all the time.” [More at Source]
On August 04, Kristen Bell attended the 34th Annual Television Critics Association Awards during the 2018 Summer TCA Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
Bell posed with co-stars Jameela Jamil and D’Arcy Carden at the ceremony.
The actress was awarded the prize for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy during the evening. The show was also nominated for Program of the Year. Co-star Ted Danson was nominated for Individual Achievement in Comedy as well.
Kristen is wearing ansatin white dress by Arias, Jimmy Choo heels, an Etrobag and Jennifer Meyer jewlery.
On January 21, Kristen had the distinct honor of being the first-ever host of the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, CA.
The ceremony began, as it always does, with the traditional “I’m an actor” montage, only this year it only included women, including Mom‘s Allison Janney, black-ish‘s Tracee Ellis Ross and Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown. The camera then cut to Bell on stage, who finished things off.
“When I was young, I used to record Disney movies onto my cassette player,” she said. “I would sing every lyric in the Disney canon knowing and believing that one day I would be a part of that magic. I am Kristen Bell, and I am a narcissist. Sorry, I am an actor — and tonight, I’m also your host.”
Bell then made her way to centerstage, making note of the fact that she was not only the ceremony’s first-ever host, but its “first lady” host.
“I honestly never thought that I’d grow up to be First Lady, but I kind of like it. I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyber bullying, because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” she said.
She did not mention Melania Trump by name, but it was a clear dig at the first lady, who said that combating cyberbullying would be her key focus during her time in the White House.
Bell quickly pointed to “Veep” actor Tony Hale, who was sitting in the audience, and said, “I’m looking at you, Tony Hale. You’re a bully. You guys, he’s savage on Twitter. I’m serious.“
She also addressed the women’s marches that took place over the weekend:
“We are living in a watershed moment and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence,” Bell said. “Because fear and anger never win the race.“
Kristen’s other zingers:
* “I am thrilled to see the cast of GLOW. GLOW, for those of you unfamiliar, is about a tour de force, powerful, strong, thoughtful ladies who get roped into doing Marc Maron’s podcast.”
* “The cast from Get Out is here, you guys, serving as a walking reminder that if you say ‘yes’ to the Tea Party, you are immediately on your way to the sunken place. It is just a fact.”
She then closed on a more heartfelt note:
“It’s a true privilege to experience and share the wide scope of humanity through storytelling. The skating queen, the grieving mother, the lady bird, even the sea monster… everyone’s story deserves to be told, especially now,” she said. “We are living in a watershed moment, and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we’re leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race. And most importantly, regardless of our differences, I think we can all come together and delight in one thing: Frozen 2 is coming out in theaters in 2019, you guys. I’m really excited.”
For the red carpet, Kristen wore a J Mendel Resort 2018 fuchsia floral embroidered drop-waist tulle gown with Charlotte Olympia heels, a Judith Leiber clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
Kristen opened the ceremony wearing a custom Reem Acra beaded deep-v gown. Later in the show, she wore another Reem Acra gown; a black long-sleeved intricately beaded gown with sheer sleeves.
For the press room, Bell wore a YANINA Couture plunging black tulle gown and beaded belt. (fashion credits to thefashioncourt )
