Posted on Written by adminComments Off on Kristin Bell at The Ellen DeGeneres Show & her new web series called “Momsplaining”
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 )
Kristen Bell visited Jimmy Kimmel Live for an interview on January 16. On the interview, the actress revealed some funny anecdotes about her relationship with hubby Dax Shepard. Dax has melted our hearts numerous times with his relationship advice and candid keys to making their marriage work, but as Kristen elaborately explained on the show, this guy is totally attached to his motorcycle and off-road vehicles.
“My one daughter has a lamby, my other daughter has a blanket, my husband has a 1,000-pound off-road vehicle, and I have my vape pen . . . #edgymom,” Kristen said. But before they were a compromising family of four with their own vices, Dax and Kristen were stubborn, and nothing epitomizes new relationships more than this lovely story about the couple’s first blowout fight.
After she was finished filming the 2010 movie When In Rome alongside Josh Duhamel, Kristen and Dax decided to take a road trip to meet their families in Detroit. But this wasn’t your average road trip with iPads and souvenir shopping at highway rest stops; these two rode Dax’s motorcycle home, and while the first half was filled with yacht rock, which we know is Dax‘s genre of choice, the other half was filled with screaming.
“We were newly in our relationship, and he had chosen the music for the first two states, and when he went into the service station I thought, ‘Well, that’s a wrap for me. I’m up to here with the yacht rock, outlaw country; let’s get some show tunes, right?!’ So I switched the iPod. Well, he was not happy,” Kristen recalled. “Because I didn’t ask, we didn’t discuss it, and it was also like we’re both control freaks, [and it was the] beginning of our relationship.”
The music was only the start of the fight for Dax and Kristen, who explained that the fight spiraled into an argument about helmet laws. “Because Dax Shepard believes that if he’s in a state that does not have a helmet law, he should be ‘observing the local culture’ and not wear his helmet,” she said. “We ended up compromising that if he was on the highway, he had to wear the helmet. But if he was on side streets, he didn’t have to wear the helmet. I’m not joking — he took side streets for like four hours just to make a point.”
For the next few states, their fight massively escalated, culminating in them screaming at each other over the sounds of the motorcycle and completely losing their voices. When they reached Kristen‘s home, having barely survived this horrible fight, they were greeted by her mom, a tower of VHS recordings, and a “medium-length photo shoot.”
Kristen‘s final words of wisdom: “But we continued dating, Jimmy. That’s the moral of the story. We worked through it. It’s about compromise. It’s about understanding the other person’s wants and needs. We weren’t listening to each other back then, but now we listen.”

A year later and the world still has Frozen fever!
That’s fine by star Kristen Bell, who still lights up when she talks about the Disney film. Forget the fact that it is the top-grossing animated film of all time or that the soundtrack has kept Bell on the Billboard charts for 47 weeks and counting, the actress says the whole ride has been “a dream come true.”
When it comes to fitness, Kristen Bell keeps it in the family.
“My go-to workout is usually hiking,” Bell, 33, told PEOPLE at the American Express Epic EveryDay Getaway with Soul Cycle in New York on Friday.
And while the actress does a lot of hiking with friends, her cutest exercise companion is 15-month-old daughter Lincoln.
“I often will strap the baby to my chest for the hike,” Bell says. (Maybe Lincoln’s the secret behind the first-time mom’s amazing body after baby?)
With her busy work schedule, Bell notes combining fitness and family time with Lincoln and husband Dax Shepard, 39, has become an effective (and enjoyable!) solution.
“[Hiking] is easy because sometimes it doesn’t actually take me away from anything because my whole family’s coming on the hike,” Bell says.
As for her growing little girl, Bell’s still smitten. “She’s delicious. It’s such a fun age,” she says. “I feel like having a toddler is exhausting and extremely rewarding — and far more rewarding than exhausting.”
