Kristen Bell Gossip
Kristen Bell gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Duana and I were marshmallows last night. Translation for the uninitiated: We went to see Veronica Mars. Early. Like it’s been years since we showed up so early for a movie. And Duana wore the gear – a top secret, deep style cut, but the gear nonetheless. Her review will be posted later this morning/early afternoon and she’s still deciding how much to give from her initial analysis – the film only opens today, after all, so we might come back to a Part 2 on Monday – but for both us, it all goes back to that expression, so sanctimonious but irritatingly right, she keeps dropping on me whenever I ask her why Riggins and Lyla couldn’t be together:
Give the audience what they need, not what they want.
Can you do that when you’ve been Kickstarted though?
Let us know after you’ve seen it with that in mind. Read Full Intro

I drank a coffee in the movie last night. Well, actually, before the movie, because we had to get there at 8pm to ensure good seats for the 9:30pm show. I never drink coffee at night anymore, and I never go to a 9:30 show. Both of these are because I’m old. So going to see the Veronica Mars Movie made me worried that I was too old to be doing it.

I don’t remember hearing Tom Ford’s name once on the Oscar carpet this year. He normally only dresses just one person at an event. Or, you know, Hayden Panettiere buys it off the rack. You have to be at a certain level for Tom Ford. At the level of a Gwyneth Paltrow or Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway, Beyonce, Charlize Theron – only Charlize has to stay with Dior contractually so, no, not Charlize. Full Story

Yes we are still talking about Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard – ironic considering that they want more privacy, no? Kristen is still aggressively tweeting media outlets with the #pedorazzi hashtag, because I guess encouraging your followers to incessantly tweet accounts that aren’t engaging back isn’t a form of pestering.

Okay, so Veronica Mars, right? If you’re one of those people who’s just heard about the movie like it’s so much noise, and is kind of rolling your eyes and maybe your Entertainment Weekly subscription is rolling in and you’re like “This on the cover?”, I have to tell you that you may be on the wrong side of history.

A few days ago, I wrote about a series of tweets by Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell calling for a boycott on magazines that buy photos of celebrity children (click here for a refresher). It made a lot of headlines, with some people taking up the cause for “save the children (who aren’t in any serious danger)” while others wondered if the whole crusade was an exercise for Dax and Kristen’s ego.

When it comes to celebrity culture, 99% of celebrities will tell you what a scourge the paparazzi are – how they just can’t stand the attention and they want to go shopping at The Grove in peace, ok? This is what they say, but it’s not hard to spot signs of collusion. Perfectly done hair/makeup on a grocery run, an uptick in photos during a promotion or campaign, a coffee run to announce a new coupling. Full Story

It has come to my attention that there is some unrest about the Veronica Mars movie. People - in my case, Sarah, who thought that the trailer looks “janky” and is being a good sport about this article - have had some critiques about it that center around the recent featurette. The complaints (and I’ve heard them from other places) seem to fall into two categories. Full Story

Okay, the Veronica Mars Kickstarter–funded movie trailer appeared on Saturday with the cast appearance at Comic-Con, complete with what we used to call an EPK (Electronic Press Kit) years ago – clips from the cast and Rob Thomas to get us hyped up. And I’m hyped – but not by the trailer, exactly. Full Story
Behold, the greatest delight the Veronica Mars Movie is going to present to us, or at least, the delight that will be mostly pleasure and not at all spiked with pain. Vinnie Van Lowe returns! I love him. I can’t help it. I love that reedy voice of his. Also, it should be noted that Ken Marino is drinking the blood of virgins or something, because he does not age at all. Full Story
No, I disagree with these photos. NO. To use an overused phrase -- DO NOT LIKE. Why is Veronica Mars holding hands with Stosh Piznarski? Do I have to sit through this with them? (Lainey: LoVe FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Because of course, there will have to be some annoying romantic entanglement. Full Story
If these are going to keep coming, this is going to keep being a lot of fun for us. Let’s see what we can figure out here. Yet another shot of Gia, hmmm? Krysten Ritter is lovely and amusing, don’t get me wrong. But methinks that, while the story is always the most important, it doesn’t hurt to move the actors who have become more high profile into higher-profile roles – or, at least, they’re the ones getting pictures taken of them.

It is not remotely the most interesting scene from the show -- I’m not sure it’s even the most interesting from the episode in question -- but when I think of Veronica Mars, I often think about the scene in season 2 where Veronica tries to set up Vinnie with a bugged pen, and he sings out the window to her to show her it hasn’t worked.

I just want to point out how outdated the headline “Celebrities and their crazy baby names” is. Yes, okay, so one guy named his kid Fifi Trixibelle and nobody will ever forget Bronx Mowgli. But there are a hell of a lot of celebrity kids named Ava and Max and Charlotte, so I feel like we can calm down a bit. Full Story
