Recently for a Funny or Die video, actress Kristen Bell played a pissed off Mary Poppins. While her accent was a little off, she hit the mark precisely in the message of the video, which was that the minimum wage is not a living wage. Now, if you put aside the fact that Mary Poppins would be living in the UK, where the 2013 minimum wage was £6.31 (about $10.70), and the fact that the movie took place in 1910, our favorite nanny is facing a major issue ...

I think it's safe to say that Kristen Bell is awesome. She's one of those celebrities I never mind hearing about, because she has opinions and isn't afraid to share them.

  Listen up, marshmallows – the good news about the Veronica Mars movie just keeps rolling in, and we couldn’t be more excited. To catch you up on a little VMars history, the brilliant series was on air from 2004 to 2007, starring Kristen Bell as a feminist heroine who kicked major ass and addressed her own vulnerability in equal parts.     The show had everything: a tightly plotted mystery, the sluethiest, snarkiest scenes, ...

We were convinced the brilliant-but-cancelled Veronica Mars would never get a proper conclusion, but it looks like our favorite sleuth will return very soon. After years of deliberation, Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell are taking action to get a movie off the ground. This morning, Thomas launched a Kickstarter to raise $2 million for the project, and while that may seem like a lot of money, diehard fans have been campaigning to bring Veronica back since the show's ...

There must be something adorable in the air today, because we caught wind of a documentary that's sure to melt our hearts: Too Cute! Baby Sloths premieres on Animal Planet on February 25 (it will air on March 4 in the UK, under the name Meet The Sloths). We hope sloth superfan Kristen Bell has her DVR set for this. Lucy Cooke's doc takes us to the Aviarios sloth sanctuary, first featured in a short video she made called "Meet The Sloths." Cooke has also ... Read More
