Welp, Kristen Bell Is Preparing to Throw an ‘Ecstasy Party’
The woman behind Veronica Mars is ready to take her brain to the cosmos — Kristen Bell revealed in a particularly intimate interview with WTF with Marc Maron that she's ready to throw an "ecstasy party" (thanks to the encouragement of her husband Dax Shepard).
Bell, who said she's an occasional pot-consumer (“I like my Vape pen quite a bit...Weed rules," she exclaimed), said she has rarely ventured elsewhere in the drug world. But Shepard has convinced her that there's at least one other substance she should try.
“He just feels you shouldn’t leave earth without trying ecstasy or mushrooms,” she said. “He wants to have an ecstasy party with all of our friends. He wants to have everyone get an overnight babysitter that we trust, put all the kids together, then come to our house, check your keys, and then have one of his buddies there and just give everybody really good ecstasy and just have us all braid each other’s hair or something.”
And Bell said Shepard, who is sober, would be happy to be the designated non-user.
“He doesn’t have a problem with anyone else partaking in anything, provided within reason, that they’re not acting like a complete shmuck,” she said. “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.”
Bell also said she's considered doing cocaine before, but has stayed away.
“I feel like I would maybe want to do it once before I die,” she said. “I have that kind of a face and personality that if I’m at a party, no one brings it out. They’re like, ‘Oh don’t bring that around Kristen.’”
And, for the critics out there — Bell, who is a mother, said all of these plans are contingent upon making sure her kids are protected from seeing anything.
“I can’t do it around my kids, which is a phenomenal amount of hours each week,” she said. “[But] once a week, if I’m just exhausted and we’re about to sit down and watch 60 Minutes, why not [use my vape pen]?”
