I've always been a serial monogamist. ...
by Kristen Bell

I've always been a serial monogamist.
- Kristen Bell

I'm not recognized very often, and if I am,
it's a die-hard Veronica Mars fan.
Which is usually flattering and an honor.
I really try not to think about it.
- Kristen Bell

I'm not a risk taker.
I don't do plunging necklines or really short skirts.
I try to stay as classy as possible and provide a little mystery.
- Kristen Bell

I've got more junk in the trunk than most 5-foot-1 blonde girls,
and I like it.
- Kristen Bell

 

When I see something unjust, I have to intervene -
it's hard for me to watch the underdog suffer.
- Kristen Bell

I rarely wear clothes when I'm home by myself.
I love making breakfast naked.
But you've got to make sure the gardener's not coming that day.
- Kristen Bell

I'm empathetic to a fault.
I really do - embarrassingly enough -
tear up when someone squishes a bug in front of me.
- Kristen Bell

I love nerds.
Comic-Con junkies are the tastemakers of tomorrow.
Isn't that funny? The tables have turned.
- Kristen Bell

Detroit, the heart of the country...
I grew up on 10 Mile, 2 miles better than 8 Mile.
- Kristen Bell

I've been very lucky in the characters I've chosen.
Up until last year I was a nobody.
I did jobs I booked because I needed to put food in my mouth.
- Kristen Bell

I'm not homely enough to play the nerdy girl and not
nearly pretty enough to play the pretty girl.
- Kristen Bell

I'm carded for R-rated movies.
And I get talked down to a lot.
When I try to go rent a car or buy an airplane ticket
or other stuff adults do,
I get 'Okaaaaaay, honey.' I remember when I was 18,
getting crayons in a restaurant.
- Kristen Bell

I can rock out anything.
I mean, I can rock out a little 'Time After Time'.
I can do a little 'Grease Lightning'.
It depends on the mood, but we do go karaoke,
my friends and I in Los Angeles, and it's a lot of fun.
- Kristen Bell

What was previously perceived as nerdy is now viewed as original.
What I like about nerdiness, geekiness,
is it doesn't really matter what you're into -
it just means you're not a follower.
- Kristen Bell

I have always been an animal lover.
I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with -
dogs and cats,
for example - from the animals on my plate,
and I never really cared for the taste of meat.
I always loved my Brussels sprouts.
- Kristen Bell

I loved Veronica right off the bat.
She was so strong and I think it is so important because
there are so few shows that portray women,
especially young women, as being strong and being able
to stand up for themselves.
- Kristen Bell

This is not to be cocky, but, I go over real well at Comic-Con.
I've done quite a few Comic-Cons, and I enjoy the hell out of them.
They are so much fun, and so bizarre.
I've done the FX Show in Florida, Wizard-World in Chicago,
Comic-Con in San Diego, Wonder-Con in San Francisco,
the Comic-Con in New York, and I've done them numerous times.
- Kristen Bell

I loved Catholic school.
I didn't like being beeped at by old pervs at the gas
station because I was wearing a plaid skirt,
though.
It's like, do you think I'm going to stop and give you my phone number?
- Kristen Bell

I don't think I have the stomach Veronica has.
I think I have the determination and the stubbornness
and a little bit of the go-get-em.
But I think I'm about 20 percent more girl than Veronica is.
There's a lot of Veronica that hits home with me,
the sort of feisty area.
But I think that I have a little bit more girl.
I'd scream my head off if I saw a body in the freezer.
- Kristen Bell

I don't like staying in hotels.
I like to be in my own bed.
San Diego as a city is really awesome.
The only hard part of it for me is that I'm away from my family and my house.
But as far as shooting down there, we get amazing locations,
and the crew is really, really stellar down there.
They are really fun.
- Kristen Bell

I pushed myself way too hard during the first year
of Veronica Mars and I got moody and run-down.
Now I'll go to bed early instead of going out with friends.
It's not always the most fun option,
but I know I need at least eight hours of sleep to feel balanced.
- Kristen Bell

There are so few strong roles for women,
especially young women.
And Veronica is very serious but also very likable.
She's a lone wolf, and it appeals to people that she
isn't rich and doesn't have a lot of friends.
No posse.
She's just like you, like most of us.
- Kristen Bell

I'm not in the business of becoming famous.
And that's the advice I give to younger aspiring actors.
Work onstage and do the little roles.
In the end it's not important to be seen.
It's important to do.
There's a lot of disappointment in this business,
but my family keeps me grounded.
- Kristen Bell

I'm an awful driver.
I'm not going to lie about it.
I'm not a good driver.
I tried for a long time to pretend that I was.
There's a lot of road rage and a lot of times it's
directed at something I've done on the road.
- Kristen Bell

I'm very used to playing the tomboy or the sarcastic cynic.
That's my go-to.
Playing the vulnerable of a real girl that's in real womanlike situations,
where it's romanticized, I'm a little nervous about it.
- Kristen Bell

All girls hit that phase where they like the bad boy.
I grew out of that really young and I have a wonderful
guy in my life who's not a bad boy at all.
I like the satiric, consistent nice guy.
- Kristen Bell

I'd do pretty much anything to get back on stage.
I'd like to develop a new musical.
I nearly had a heart attack when I heard that they're
developing John Waters' Cry-Baby because that is so
amazing and super and wonderful and I wish that I could be involved.
But it's not the right time and I understand that.
But I hear things like that and I get that little tingle in my stomach.
- Kristen Bell

Footprints in the sands of time...
Where have you been?
Where are you going?
Why are you going there?

it kills the man who angers,

it takes something from him.
