40 Inspirational Kristen Bell Quotes

1. “Detroit, the heart of the country… I grew up on 10 Mile, 2 miles better than 8 Mile.” – Kristen Bell

2. “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

3. “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

4. “I have a lot of responsibilities, but I don’t think I’ve grown up.” – Kristen Bell

5. “I’m not going to become anybody I don’t want to become” – Kristen Bell

6. “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

8. “When Veronica Mars was canceled, the following season of pilots for The CW had been announced, and one was Gossip Girl. I read it, and I knew I was sort of old to play any of the kids. I called Dawn Ostroff — who was the head of The CW at the time — and said, ‘Hey, I did so much narration on Veronica Mars, can I narrate this show? And she said, ‘Hey, that’s a very good idea.’ They knew I had a younger voice, they liked me and they knew I’d show up for work, and I guess that was all I really needed. It was so clear to me how sassy and catty she needed to be.” – Kristen Bell

10. “I think real humans are so complicated, and often [characters] are written more one-dimensional without maybe even the writer knowing it. I’ve felt numerous moments in my life where my most confident moment and my most insecure moment were exactly the same time. There’s nothing funny or interesting about perfection.” – Kristen Bell

11. “We have a family calendar and it’s how everybody runs. In truth, there’s no trick to balancing it. If you look at the calendar and you’ve seen you’ve gone 10 days without a date night, you know you need to prioritize more.” – Kristen Bell

14. “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.

15. “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

17. “It’s definitely a difficult thing to capture and I mean, I’ve seen a ton of movies where I’ve believed the couple and I’ve seen a ton of movies where I have not believed them at all. Unfortunately, as an audience member, you check out if you don’t believe them.” – Kristen Bell

18. “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

 

19th of 40 Kristen Bell Quotes

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

25. “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

26. “Something magical happened when I turned 25 – I looked in the mirror and was like, ‘You might not get carded for an R-rated movie anymore.’ Like I didn’t have a little stick figure anymore.” – Kristen Bell

31. “Every woman in her late 20s goes through a period where she just doesn’t believe love is out there anymore, but it is. And I think the minute you stop looking for it is when it comes for you.” – Kristen Bell

32. “I refused to worry about something I could not change, and I still refuse. Look, I’m like any other woman. All this evolved b.s. that I’m telling you is my mantra. It’s not something I practice naturally. I had to surrender to not worrying about the way I looked, how much I weighed because that’s just part of the journey of having a baby. I am not a woman whose self-worth comes from her dress size.” – Kristen Bell

33. “I’m more of a homebody. I’m constantly asked: ‘Why don’t we see you out?’ But that’s not what drives me. I prefer to have people over – which I do a lot because I bought a house that’s way too big for me, and four of my friends live there” – Kristen Bell
