Kristen Bell, New Mom, Elated To Be A Disney StarBy: Amanda Crum - August 13, 2013
Kristen Bell, who just had a baby girl in March with fiancee Dax Shepard, says she’s incredibly happy for the chance to star in an animated Disney movie because it will be something for her to bond with her daughter over in the future.
The 33-year old actress says she’s always been a big fan of Disney films–particularly “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin”–and that it’s a dream come true to actually star in one.
“They were the first movies I remember being obsessed with as a kid. I’ve seen the Little Mermaid 100 times, I’ve seen Aladdin 100 times. And I can quote all of them!” she said. “Just the idea that I’m actually involved in one and had creative input on who I wanted this girl to be is a dream come true.”
Bell stars in the upcoming film “Frozen” as a princess named Anna and says she hopes her daughter will love it as much as she does.
“I hope she likes it! Just my luck she’ll hate cartoons or something!” she said. “I feel so lucky I get to pass this down to her one day.”
Bell, who has been engaged to Shepard since 2009, has said that the couple have been in no hurry to marry because of their views on gay rights.
“We wouldn’t want to invite all of our friends who don’t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just don’t feel right about that,” Shepard said.
