Kirsten Bell Is Peachy

It's getting hard to 'Forget Sarah Marshall' when she's on the cover of every magazine and doing promo rounds on all the talk shows. The star of the flick, Kirsten Bell, graces the new cover of Peach magazine in which she talks about her 'boring hobbies, living in sunny LA, and being a geek. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Kristen on her self-professed “boring” hobbies: “I love to go on walks, I love to knit. My roommate Amy and I love to find different Martha Stewart recipes out of Real Simple magazine.”

Kristen on being a Midwestern girl living in sunny L.A.:
“I think I’m the only person in Los Angeles that doesn’t appreciate the weather. I’m from Detroit, and I love the cold. I love bundling up. It makes me feel secure. I get intimidated by a really sunshiny day, because it’s like, now we have to do something outside, we have to do something relaxing. I always get really excited when it rains, or when it’s hot-chocolate weather, because there’s no expectations.”

Kristen on being more proud of being chosen “Queen of Geek Chic” by Geek magazine than her rankings in more mainstream men’s magazines:
“I think it’s the ultimate flattery. Because the definition of geeks, it’s people who like what they like ‘cause they like it. They’re not trying to fit in.”

Kristen on how the perception of her in Hollywood may present some limitations:
“I’m not pretty enough to play the pretty girl and not homely enough to play the awkward girl. I don’t ever want to play the same role over and over again. I don’t want my value to go up because of who I am as Kristen Bell. I want to remain an actress.”
