Kristen Bell's Furry Freakout
When I met up with Kristen Bell (love that I get to say that) earlier this month to interview her about House of Lies, there was a moment when I broached the subjects of favorite cuddly critters with the animal lover.
That's when she launched into an adorable essay about the wonders of sloths.
"I Google Baby Sloths maybe 2-3 times a week," she told me. "I've been obsessed with sloths for as long as I can remember. They must be my spirit animal or something. There's nothing cuter than a baby sloth. It doesn't exist in my opinion. OK, maybe a slow Loris. Maybe. On a good day. And if it's a baby slow loris," she gushed to me in a hilarious stream of consciousness that a print interview truly fails to capture.
Thankfully she brought this unbridled animal enthusiasm -- and a video tape -- to the Ellen show yesterday. Not going to lie, I cried from laughing so hard seeing her cry from loving so hard when talking about baby sloths. So watch Kristen lose it, big time, in a video that should turn everyone into a flag waving member of Team Bell!
