Kristen Bell: 'Invisible Children' Needs Your Vote!
Kristen Bell dons a pretty Jenni Kayne dress and Louboutin shoes at JustJared.com‘s screening of her new romantic comedy, When In Rome, at the AMC Theater in Times Square, New York City on Monday night (January 18).
Here’s what the 29-year-old actress told JustJared.com exclusively right after taping Letterman:
On her fave When In Rome scene to shoot: “The dining in the dark one where we got to knock things over! I think they only have these types of restaurants in NY/LA. When Josh [Duhamel] and I rehearsed, we would do it blindfolded. It was an an interesting exercise but we actually just put a green filter on the camera for the actual taping. It was an extremely destructive scene!” (laughs)
On her fave prop from set: “I have a favorite scar! (points at bruise) I burnt my leg on a scooter in Rome and it burnt right through my pants! I had an apple-sized third-degree burn on my leg from the exhaust pipe. I saw two different doctors but I couldn’t understand what they were saying. No one spoke English [in Rome]! I went to a pharmacy, got all the supplies I needed myself and then researched on WebMD.com on how to take care of my own gnarly burn! When we were shooting those scenes with me standing in the fountain, I had a huge garbage bag rolled up under my wedding dress and taped around my thigh.”
On if she would ever get married in Rome: “It’s a beautiful place. Other than this movie, I don’t have any affiliations or family there. I’m a big fan of being much more intimate with any kind of experience like an anniversary, wedding or any sort of family reunion, so I think I’d probably keep it more close to home.”
On her fave cause at the moment: “Invisible Children is a very important charity to me, they fight to end the use of child soldiers in Uganda, build schools and provide education to the war effected kids there. It is run by close and personal friends, so I know my donations are going to a good place and being used wisely! Invisible Children will send a relief team to Haiti to provide $100,000 in direct relief services. But we need your help. Please, if you do anything today, do this. We’re a finalist in the Chase Community Giving Facebook competition to win $1,000,000 for our ‘big idea’ of ending Africa’s longest running war. Please vote at Facebook.com!”
