Here’s Kristen Bell on shooting a House of Lies scene where another character puts her foot in his mouth:
…it was as awkward as it seems to be.You know, I had just met another actor who, as per the crazy script written, needed to put my foot in his mouth. We talked about it and I washed my foot and he had a mint – just for shits and giggles – and we just kind of went for it. We didn’t practice it at all, obviously, because: No. 1) Why would you? That’s weird. No. 2) We wanted it to be realistically awkward when we did it.
“Sophisticated filth” indeed! She goes on to talk about why the “sexy, glossy world of cut-throat business” was an appealing career choice. And just as importantly, to talk about her Hunger Games-themed 30th birthday party, which sounds pretty much amazing.
