“House of Lies” star Kristen Bell appeared on “Chelsea Lately” Monday (Jan. 6), where she talks about how people ask her if she’ll show her daughter, Lincoln, any of her racier acting gigs, to which Bell has one of her typically awesome responses.
“People ask, ‘Oh well, you’ve done sexy material, do you not want her
to see that?’ And I’m like, ‘My guess is if she’s anything like the
other 5 billion people on the planet, she’s gonna grow up and enjoy
sex,’ so I’m not gonna be shocked by that,” says Bell.
I just think you’re setting
yourself up for disaster if you’re trying to keep a lid on the whole —
she has — news flash — a vagina and she’s going to figure it out one
day and more power to her.”
Bell does add that perhaps she’ll start with her recent Disney film “Frozen” when she starts showing her baby her work.
The “Veronica Mars” star also says that having a baby has changed her, though. She’s now a little more afraid of dangerous things than she used to be.
“I was on the ski team
in high school, I skied all growing up. But I got to the slopes last
year, to the very top, and I thought, ‘Oh my god, what are we doing?!
This is SO dangerous, everybody get off the mountain right now!'” laughs Bell, admitting that it might be because she just had a baby.
She also shares a charming anecdote about what she and husband Dax Shepard did for the holidays this year.
“We went on a road trip, it was great. … Somehow [Dax] was able to procure, because the internet is fabulous, he bought a couple months ago a brand-new 1984 Chevy Roadmaster. I’m not joking, we peeled the factory plastic off the floor. It’s the same one Clark Griswold drives in ‘Christmas Vacation.’ It’s so pimp!” says Bell.
We put a big encasement for our luggage on the top, popped the dogs in the back, rolled the seats down, baby, me, him at the wheel. And those seats, they’re like Laz-E-Boys. It was dope. … We drove to Oregon to see family and stopped at weird, little wonderful towns.”
We feel confident in saying that we could absolutely hang out at all times with Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell.
“House of Lies” Season 3 premieres Sunday, Jan. 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
