The fizzy, funny blonde is adorable both inside and out. This month, the petite star proves irresistible in the frothy rom-com When in Rome, opposite Josh Duhamel, Will Arnett, and Bell's real-life boyfriend, Dax Shepard, who all vie for her affection after she removes a coin from a fountain of loveand is instantly cursed. Here, she tackles the much less taboo MC questionnaire:
MC: What do you wish you knew five years ago?
KB: How to deal with assholes. I just hit a wall a few years ago where I was tired of taking everything personally. I'm a much calmer person now that I know it's you, not me.
MC: What's your hidden talent?
KB: I give really good massages. I can feel balls of tension, and I'm ready to get combative with them.
MC: Why are you a good friend?
KB: I'm a great listener.
MC: Why are you a bad friend?
KB: I work way too much. I often don't want to leave my houseI don't like to get dressed up and go out. I like to have people come over, and I suppose that makes me demanding, lazy, and selfish.
MC: What's your favorite drink?
KB: I love eggnogI drink it year-round when I can find it. It's so delicious. I could live exclusively on eggnog. What is a nog, anyway?
MC: What superhero power do you want to have?
KB: The power of persuasion.
MC: What's one thing people don't know about you?
KB: I love arts and crafts.
MC: What's your favorite indulgence?
KB: Dessert after every mealpancakes covered in syrup after eggs, Hershey's Kisses, even Ovaltine.
MC: Makeup or no makeup at the grocery store?
KB: Can it be perfume? Jovan White Musk. I've worn it since I was 16. My mother and my grandmother wore it, too. It drives men crazy.
