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.
Kristen Bell happily sits down to chat while visiting SiriusXM’s Town Hall at the SiriusXM Studios on Wednesday (November 13) in New York City.
The actress was joined by her Frozen 2 co-star Idina Menzel as they dished about the film with SiriusXM’s Jessica Shaw.
Kristen explained how her kids reacted to knowing all the secrets of Frozen 2.
“I told my kids everything. I was in the mood to be a cool mom. I tell them all the time. I tell them two things,” Kristen explained. “Number one: all your teeth are going to fall out, which is the best thing you can say to a kid. Number two: I was like okay, here’s what happens. After I read the script, I told them everything. They were excited and then it occurred to me that i was in breach of my contract. I told them it was very important that they don’t tell anyone at school.”
Kristen Bell and Jimmy Fallon impressively pulled off a medley of 17 Disney classics in an over five-minute segment on the The The Tonight Show (November 13).
The host and the actress kicked off their performance with “When You Wish Upon a Star,” then effortlessly covered “Under the Sea,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” as well as a few songs from Frozen, as well as a quick rendition of “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins.
Along the way, there were a few simple costume changes, a prop lion, and a flying rug for Aladdin. They finished with “Into the Unknown” from the upcoming Frozen 2, in which Bell stars as the voice of Anna.
For the finale, Bell gave it her all for “Let It Go,” complete with snow.
Kristen also hit the couch and talked to Jimmy about her brand new Disney+ show Encore and teases details about Frozen 2, which will hit theaters on November 22.
Bell was wearing a high neck sweater and satin wide-leg pants by alice + olivia.
Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel will join an elite group of big names when they take part in a double star ceremony on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Frozen stars will both be feted with the 2,681st and 2,682nd stars on November 19, 2019 – the day before the film’s much-anticipated sequel hits screens.
“The Hollywood Walk of Fame makes an extra special effort to pair artists who work together or are related with their stars next to each other,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “We are thrilled to place Kristen and Idina… together in front of Hollywood’s most historic theatres.”
Filmmakers Richard and Lauren Shuler Donner became the first pair to be honored on the same day with double stars back in 2008, while Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were also honored together, as were Kinky Boots co-creators Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein, and Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy.
