Kristen Bell Talks Healthy Eating with Women’s Health April 2020
Kristen Bell graces the April 2020 cover of Women’s Health magazine. In the accompanying interview, the 31-year-old ‘House of Lies’ actress dishes on healthy eating, her favorite bonding ritual, the sexiest body part, swearing, and working with fiancé, Dax Shepard, on their movie ‘Outrun’. “I would watch him walk back to the monitor and yell things such as ‘Action!’ or ‘Cut!’ and I’d just go, ‘And you expect me to work when you’re doing cute things around me all day? How am I supposed to focus?,” she says on the upcoming action comedy ‘Outrun’. Dax Shepard wrote the film and co-directed with David Palmer.
On Dax’s cooking, Kristen admits that, “He makes this delicious spaghetti dish… about twice a year. I wish he cooked more,” she says, then immediately rescinds it. “I don’t wish he cooked more. He’s a very good cook, but I’m quite territorial in the kitchen. It’s like, if I went outside and fixed the car, he’d be like, ‘Whaaat?’”
It seems that for the past few months, the beautiful actress and her fiancé have started their days with a 20-minute transcendental meditation session, sometimes holding hands. “We nauseate ourselves with how mushy we are,” she says. “It’s a wonderful way to connect,” Kristen told Women’s Health.
On Neutrogena natural purifying facial cleanser, which she’s been the face of since last year, Kristen says that, “There are no phthalates, no parabens, and no sulfates. But it’s just what you need to clean your face, so you’re not sacrificing anything.”
When it comes to swearing, the actress admits she is not afraid to use the F word. “I have a potty mouth. I’m not afraid to drop an F-bomb. I can love organic tomatoes and swearing – the two aren’t mutually exclusive,” Bell says.
Kristen confesses she loves her ‘House of Lies’ co-star Don Cheadle’s butt, which he fully bares on the show. “If you had those beautiful chocolate bun-cakes, you’d show ’em too, let’s be honest,” the actress jokes. On butts, Kristen says that, “My favorite things on the planet. I want two round cupcakes, always. I kicked my buns and abs sets into high gear when I knew I’d have to be in my bra and underwear on House of Lies. But I don’t show my crack! All the Mr. Skins of the world are like, ‘Ooh, Kristen gets naked!’ I’m like, ‘Dream on!’”
The petite blonde also reveals her favorite quotes. “The one that I absolutely live by is ‘No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.’ If you really think about that, it blows your mind. Oh, I have to allow you to make me feel insecure? Well, I’m not going to allow that. It’s just so deep,” Bell told the magazine.
In the interview, the actress jokes that vegan food is “fart powder” and it “makes you gassy” and compares herself to “a little Italian grandmother.” “Cooking is my love language, where there’s the most amount of giving selflessly,” she says. On eco-cleaners, Kristen explains that, “Vinegar and water will clean anything: countertops, windows. If you want it to smell nice, add a couple drops of orange and peppermint essential oils for a minty citrus.”
