Kristen Bell confirming 'Veronica Mars' reboot, smoking weed, and offering fans advice makes her the superhero we need
So you thought, Kristen Bell's anniversary post was the most heartwarming thing she could come up with? Well, we've got some news for you.
Did you know that the Veronica Mars fandom was called Marshmallows? Well - of course, you did. It's hard to have missed out any fact on our favorite on-screen PI or the massive fan following she gained through the three year run of her titular show, 'Veronica Mars.' And even though there was a reboot movie on the same character back in 2014, looks like her fans just can't get enough of her.
So back in August, the show bosses decided Veronica was to return once again - with yet another revival series this time. And among the month-long speculation, the face behind Veronica - Kristen Bell herself - has confirmed that yes, the queen is about to hit the screens once again!
“Attention all Marshmallows: BREAKING NEWS!!!!! We are OFFICIALLY back in business!!! A new #veronicamars series is coming back, on @hulu !!!!” the 38-year-old wrote on Thursday, September 20, alongside an Instagram post. “Veronica has always been a superhero without a Cape. And I think she’s exactly what the world needs right now. Thank you to all my fellow marshmallows who stayed excited. Thank you to @hulu for the opportunity. I hope we’re still friends after I taser you.”
Trust Kristen to always infuse her signature quips into any social media post she makes; but funnily enough, that hasn't been the wholesome announcement she has been up to this week. When not dropping hints about how she might or might not taser wrongdoers, Kristen also decided to declare to the word that she is, in fact, every inch the satirical 'Bad Mom' role she had portrayed in the movie. Just kidding, if anything, she's a cool mom as she shared that she happens to be a recreational marijuana user.
“I like my vape pen quite a bit,” she said on a recent episode of the podcast “WTF With Marc Maron.” “Weed rules. Weed is my drug of choice, for sure," she added, insisting that she smokes it only on occasion. “I can’t do it around my kids, which is a phenomenal amount of hours each week,” she said. “Once a week, if I’m just exhausted, and we’re about to sit down and watch 60 Minutes, why not?”
But what's even more chill about Kristen is her acknowledgment of her beloved husband and fellow comedian, Dax Sheperd's sobriety. While“he doesn’t have a problem with anyone else partaking in anything, provided within reason that they’re not acting like a complete schmuck," she elaborated that “He’s fine if people do things. He likes drugs and alcohol. He just is aware that he lost his privilege with them because he can’t handle it. His brain does not have the chemistry to handle it.”
What's more? The lady who promised there are secrets she would never tell, in the form of the hit show 'Gossip Girl's narrator, jut admitted that she would like to try cocaine before she dies. “I have that kind of a face and personality that if I’m at a party, no one brings it out,” she explained. “They’re like, ‘Oh don’t bring that around Kristen.’”
And while she did acknowledge her husband's resilience when it comes to maintaining his 14-year long sobriety, that didn't stop internet trolls from shading her for smoking weed. But much like the knight in shining armor, he has always been for Kristen, Dax himself came to her defense, shutting all Twitter trolls down with just one post. “That would be like a diabetic expecting their partner to never eat dessert,” the 43-year-old tweeted in response to The Talk twitter account's tweet. Their tweet read: "Kristen Bell vapes weed around Dax Shepard, even though he’s sober. If you were sober, would you expect your spouse to be? #EverybodyTalks." And what did Dax have to tell them? “Get real!”
Okay, ouch - there are forever alone people here, Dax. But relationship goals, much? It almost leads you to think that these two couldn't get more wholesome than when it comes to each other, but...(There's always a but!) But, he isn't the only one playing the absolute goals card; turns out his ever so adorable wife has trumped him again. It all happened over an Instagram interaction, through which Kristen proved to be the wholesome celebrity millennials adore rooting for - all via a simple comment.
She had posted a picture of her look for the Emmys - where, spoiler alert - but she was looking beyond stunning! And of course, the comments flooded in complimenting the actress for her looks. But among those 9000 comments, Kristen's attention caught one in particular. A young user called Charmaine wrote: “So mother f***ing beautiful. U are stunning unlike me [sic].”

And enamored with her adorable sass, Kristen not only noticed the comments but also replied with the most heartwarming, empowering words. “Gurl don't u dare [sic],” she wrote. “You got one time on this planet - don't waste time being negative. You deserve all the love in the world. And I think your face is beautiful AF. Don't you dare tell me I’m wrong [sic].” Bell went on to recommend Charmaine follow Love Warrior author Glennon Doyle and read her book. “Smile more, because u are alive and wonderful. And loved. Xo [sic],” she added.
So without further ado - can we please make Kristen 2020 happen? Thank you.
