Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard finally tied the knot earlier this month, but it wasn’t the grand affair you might have come to expect from Hollywood stars. In fact, they exchanged vows at the Beverly Hills courthouse, which doesn’t sound all that romantic or special (but sounds AWESOME because I would do the same – fuck a big ceremony! What a waste of money!)
Dax Shepard was on Jimmy Kimmel’s show on Tuesday night, where he admitted that they may have had the “world’s worst wedding” – at least as far as outsiders are concerned. It was perfect for them, however.
“So we went to the Beverly Hills Court House and all in, with fuel to get there, $142 out the door. Friends of ours came to the courthouse, and it was just Kristen and I at this lonely Court House, so they brought us this cake afterwards.
“‘World’s Worst Wedding.’ How many people can say they threw the ‘World’s Worst Wedding’?”

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard got quietly and spontaneously married at the Beverly Hills courthouse. Apparently they weren’t planning to wed yesterday (October 17) — they just wanted to get their marriage license — but somehow, it happened. From TMZ:
The couple had a no-frills ceremony at the Beverly Hills County Clerk Office. We’re told there was a photographer present, and Kristen was crying.
According to eye witnesses, Kristen and Dax went to the clerk office just to get their marriage license — but when a court employee offered to marry them on the spot, they agreed … and conducted the ceremony in a nearby courtroom.

Oh sweet, sloth-loving, cute-as-a-button little Kristen Bell. Ain’t she the sweetest? (That sounds like I’m being an asshole but I’m really not, for once!) Earlier this year, Kristen and husband Dax Shepard had a baby girl called Lincoln. Both mom and baby were happy and healthy, but that’s not what we care about. No, we want to know how she lost the baby weight. After all, that is the most important question in the world, and the most important thing a woman can do after growing a human being and then pushing it out of her vagina (or having a C-section, not hating!). WHAT ABOUT THE BABY WEIGHT, the world cries. Well, just act like a normal fucking person and eat well and work out, obviously.
From USA Today:
“I got off my butt and got to the gym,” says Bell.
Of course it didn’t hurt that she had the inspiration of hosting the CMT Music Awards this month. It was a handy prompt during low energy moments.
“I really have no secret, I started working out when the doctor told me that I could and I kind of put the pedal to the metal,” says Bell, who voices the heroine Anna in Disney’s Frozen out in November. “I’m not doing anything unhealthy and I never would. But I’m trying to eat clean and keep everything on track as best as possible.”
Bell ate clean, which meant a lot of salads, fruit and vegetables, and she cut back on her desserts.
You know, just a note to the journalists in the world when you sit down to interview anyone – a public figure or anyone else. It’s so cliché and stupid to ask a woman about her body, whether she just had a baby or she just happens to be super in shape (or, on the opposite side of the spectrum). What’s your secret? Well, it’s the world’s secret: you burn more calories than you put in your body, creating a deficit that leads to weight loss. It’s not rocket science. Christ.

Kristen Bell is adorable in every way, so I bet her daughter with Dax Shepard, little Lincoln Bell, is pretty cute, too. Kristen was on The Ellen Show last week to talk about… I dunno, sloths? Life? Motherhood? and said that having a baby has kind of been better than she even expected, which is cute.
There’s not much to say on this one, but have a look at her interview below:

Infamous sloth lover and Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell is pretty adorable and so is her relationship with fiancé Dax Shepard (after all, anyone who surprises you with a real live sloth for your birthday is a keeper). The pair announced last year that they were expecting their first child together, and that baby came into the world on Thursday.
Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom’s beauty and dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!

First of all, Lincoln Bell Shepard is such a great name for a girl. When I was a kid, I loved the idea of naming my future kids (which I no longer want, unfortch) typically boy names like Finn and Piper, which I now realize sounds like I’m starting my own troupe of Irish clog dancers, but whatevs. Second of all, what up, Aries? My birthday’s next weekend, which makes us zodiac twinz!!
Congrats to the happy couple – I bet that baby is cute as a button.

Veronica Mars, the cult television show that starred Kristen Bell and ended in 2007, is using Kickstarter to get funds to make a long-awaited Veronica Mars movie. Their goal is $2 million and as of now, according to Forbes, they’ve broken records by raising $1 million in the first four hours. It looks like this is going to happen. That is, that their goal is going to be reached. Hopefully after that it’s not a struggle to actually get it made and into theaters.
Series creator Rob Thomas (not the one who wants to, “Puuuusssshhh-a you down”/Matchbox 20 singer) is heading the Kickstarter project. On their page:
Here it is. Our one shot to see a Veronica Mars movie happen. Kristen is in. I’m in. Let’s do it!
Almost since Veronica Mars went off the air, there’s been talk of making a movie. In that span, I’ve taken different tactics in dealing with the question of whether it might happen. To be clear, I’ve always wanted to make a Veronica Mars movie. I love writing these characters and working with these actors. Kristen Bell has always wanted to make the movie.
Of course, Warner Bros. still owns Veronica Mars and we would need their blessing and cooperation to pull this off. Kristen and I met with the Warner Bros. brass, and they agreed to allow us to take this shot. They were extremely cool about it, as a matter of fact. Their reaction was, if you can show there’s enough fan interest to warrant a movie, we’re on board. So this is it. This is our shot. I believe it’s the only one we’ve got. It’s nerve-wracking. I suppose we could fail in spectacular fashion, but there’s also the chance that we completely revolutionize how projects like ours can get made. No Kickstarter project ever has set a goal this high. It’s up to you, the fans, now. If the project is successful, our plan is to go into production this summer and the movie will be released in early 2014.
If you want to contribute, check out their page. Even a $10 pledge will get you a treat.
UPDATE: THE FUNDS HAVE BEEN RAISED! “My mind is blown…today has exceeded the wildest pipe dream I let myself entertain. Holy cow. We better make a good movie. These amazing fans have stepped up.We better deliver.” — ROB THOMAS TO E.W.
