Kristen Bell: 'Invisible Children' Needs Your Vote!

Kristen Bell: 'Invisible Children' Needs Your Vote!

Kristen Bell dons a pretty Jenni Kayne dress and Louboutin shoes at‘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 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 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!”

When In Rome, which opens on January 29, also co-stars Dax Shepard, Will Arnett, Jon Heder and more! Follow K-Bell on Twitter @IMKristenBell. 10+ pics inside…

  • kristen bell sucks

    I attended the screening last nite looking forward to an intro from Kristen Bell. Instead we wait 15min for her to show up and say ,” i hope you like the movie hehe. sorry i have to go.” what a biatch.

    Obviously she had to go bcuz the movie sucked a$$ and nobody laughed and she doesn’t want to know what ppl really think about her “acting”.

    Perfect example of having an all star cast can still be a lousy movie! no chemistry bwn KB and hottie Josh. He’s great to look at but blah acting.

    Trust me this movie is a $1 rental from red box – don’t waste your money. I predict box office total earnings $42 million and i’m being generous.

    I, too, was at the screening. I, however, don’t agree with the previous assessment of Kristen’s appearance.

    She came in, and yes, it was incredibly brief. However, she never said “I have to go.” She actually stood there for a bit while everyone in the theatre really just stared at her. I mean, honestly, I didn’t know what to say either. She seemed sweet. Kristen did say “I hope you like the movie,” but she also paused for a second and giggled before saying, “I’m sorry, I really don’t know what else to say!” That’s when it was awkwardly silent in the theater for a bit. Then someone yelled “You’re cute!” and everyone laughed. Then Jared was the one who said, “Ok! Hope you like the movie!” or something similar, and the theater went dark as the movie immediately started (meaning no previews or anything).

    So, I wouldn’t blame Kristen or Jared. It was just a generally awkward and oddly planned situation. I actually thought she was going to come at the end and spend some time with the fans. The movie wasn’t exactly Oscar-worthy, but she still could’ve done a little Q&A post-screening.

    Meanwhile, I actually enjoyed the movie. I thought it was sweet, and Josh’s part in the movie was endearing, although his Star Wars loving buddy stole every scene he was in. It was a good length considering it’s genre, and it moved swiftly. Josh does physical comedy very well. The only thing I thought was weird was the very ending. Obviously, I won’t tell you what happens, but I thought it was unnecessary. Anyway, the movie is the embodiment of a chick flick, so more of a girls’ night out kind of thing, but not absolutely horrific by any means.
