Kristen Bell has been in the public eye for quite some time now.
While most other celebrities fall under scrutiny or succumb to controversy at some point or another, that doesn’t seem to be a concern for this Hollywood actress.
She’s one of the most likable stars out there, and in this article, we’re going to look at all the reasons why we love Kristen Bell.
She is An Advocate
Kristen Bell doesn’t keep quiet about issues that are important to her. Instead, she lets her voice be heard and refuses to stand down.
One such issue that she is a staunch advocate for is the “No Kids Policy” in Hollywood. This refers to pictures of celebrity children being taken by the paparazzi or other sources. Ms. Bell believes this to be a violation of every child’s - and indeed, every person’s - right to privacy. And we’re inclined to agree with her.
There are other issues that the actress has been an advocate for in the past. Regardless of what she’s championing, we admire her for her staunch dedication to the topics she considers important. Hopefully, it’ll inspire other celebrities to follow suit in the future.
She Picks Good Roles
Of course, a lot of us recognize the actress from one of her earliest roles - that of teen super-sleuth, Veronica Mars. Since then, she’s continued the trend of playing string, confident women.
The portrayal of empowered female characters is another issue which the actress is passionate about. She always endeavors only to play strong and capable women, and we have nothing but respect for her for not settling for less.
She’s a Vegetarian
Yes, you read that right. While many Hollywood actors have since taken on the demanding challenge of being a vegetarian, Kristen has been one since the age of 11. If that’s not impressive, we don’t know what is.
This also leads to yet another topic which the actress is passionate about: animal rights. While she doesn’t condemn meat-eaters, she personally has a hard time disassociating what the animals she eats, and the animals she pets. We have massive amounts of respect for her stance on this.
She is Very Down-to-Earth
While most celebrities tend to fall prey to the pitfalls of stardom, Kristen Bell has managed to keep a level head throughout her admittedly illustrious career.
She knows that the Hollywood routine is part of her job, but Kristen Bell would rather spend a day at home over a night on the town. Her idea of fun is playing board and card games with her close friends and family. And while the celebrity lifestyle certainly seems appealing, we can imagine it’s also pretty draining.
Luckily, Kristen Bell knows her limits. And she’s perfectly okay with going to bed early whenever possible rather than spending a night at a party.
She Doesn’t Mind Getting Older
Maintaining the same level of youth and beauty across your career seems to be an unreachable aspiration for most Hollywood celebrities. Not Kristen Bell, though!
It seems frustrating being demanded to retain one’s youth and beauty a la Dorian Gray. Many celebrities will undergo rigorous amounts of surgery and other artificial beautification treatments in order to ensure that they always look their most youthful.
Kristen Bell, on the other hand, celebrates her getting older. She cites Helen Mirren, Glenn Close, and Meryl Streep as her inspiration, saying that those three women have aged beautifully, and are still at the top of their game.
She Knows How to Take Care of Herself
Celebrities represent some sort of unattainable beauty for a lot of people. With their perfect bodies, flawless teeth, and otherwise gorgeous looks, a lot of us can fall into the trap of looking up to these titans of pop culture and wanting what we can’t have.
The Bottom Line
Luckily, Kristen Bell knows not to fall into the trap herself. She knows that the key to a truly healthy body is a healthy mind. Inner peace is the name of the game with the actress, and she hopes that more people will follow suit in the future. Honestly, so do we.
