    hmmmmm. yeah but Naya would still make the better Johanna Mason. Sorry

  • GGGgive

    i would like to see her in the hunger games sequal

  • Anya

    Wow, I liked her until now, but what kind of idiot do you have to be, to call “The Hunger Games” “the best thing we’ve ever written”? Is it kind of exciting? Sure. But is it also forseeable? Yes. It’s also just not written good. But the books continue to be making a lot of money and the movie will too, so she probably wants to be in the second film.

    @Anya: What kind of books are you reading? Lmao, it is very, VERY well written.

  • leah

    It’s no where near being amazing literature. It’s good, but her praise is a little cringeworthy. She’s a major fangirl, I get it.

  • chels

    she is such a huge fan, and a total cheerleader for these books, i want her to get the part of joanna mason so bad! she’d be perfect, and you know she’d be so excited to be there!

    that veronica mars, she’s a marshmallow!

    I love Kristen Bell – she’s very witty during interviews and seems to have a good head on her shoulders…a rare commodity. And her birthday parties sound AWESOME!!! A guest appearance by a sloth and Hunger Games-themed – sounds fun!

  • Rebecca

    She is so funny and cute! Love her!
    And come on people, haven’t you ever loved a book/movie/anything so much that you declared it the best thing ever? For me it just adds to her pros, that she is not embarrassed to admit to being a fan girl. I am 30 and absolutely loved those books when I first read them last year!

  • Dee

    I love her she’s all kinds of adorable but she’s obviously trying to kiss some butt and trying to get a part lol She’s a smart girl but I don’t take her comments seriously.

    The Hunger Games series is supposedly written well as a YA novel, but calling it the best piece of literature is just pure ignorance! Nothing against Kristen personally. Also, she’s kinda acting the same in all her films/tv work these days.

  • Carla

    So cute how she loves the books :)

  • Leni

    She was saying at the time she was really into it and thought it was the greatest thing ever at the time. She wasn’t professing that it was truly the best book anyone has ever written. I think she’d be a great Johanna.
