Actress Kristen Bell sat down with Parade Magazine to chat about her return to television in the new Showtime series ‘House of Lies‘, and to dish on her home life with fiance Dax Shepard (Parenthood).
On TV vs. films:
“I like the consistency of a series. I’m a lot like a dog, I like routine and I like consistency. And it keeps you in town. Acting is a really fun job, but one of the not-so fun parts of it is that you’re always traveling and it takes a strain on you emotionally. I like being at home, I don’t like living out of a suitcase. Having to travel all the time is just a stressful thing I don’t want to deal with.”
On life as an engaged lady:
“It’s perfect. I’m happy as a clam! I’m just happy where I am. I hope life continues exactly how it is.”
The shows she and Dax make sure to DVR:
“We watch Parenthood every week, and we’ll probably watch House of Lies. Our DVR is full of Homeland, Parenthood, Frontline, 60 Minutes, and America’s Funniest Home Videos. Oh, and Jersey Shore! It just started up again. It’s hilarious.”
On jumping at the chance to work with Don Cheadle:
“The fact that it is on Showtime was a big component of my interest level. I realized about a year ago that I missed TV, but having been through the ringer on a few shows, I had a couple requirements that I didn’t want to compromise on. I didn’t want the whole show to be on my shoulders and I wanted it to be a show that was a little edgier. And I really wanted it to be on cable. There’s less pressure on a cable network because you shoot less episodes, so it doesn’t overrun your whole life. So this falling into my lap was not only amazing because it wasn’t on my shoulders and it was on a great, edgy network, but Don Cheadle was already attached, which was certainly a deciding factor for me.”
