Kristen Bell on the October 2017 Cover of Redbook Magazine

Kristen Bell is the October 2017 cover star of Redbook magazine. On the cover which was shot by Yu Tsai, Kristen casually wears a stripe sweater and denim skirt. In the issue, she talks marriage, dealing with jerks, motherhood and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on her feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On being asked about 'doing it all' and 'finding balance': 
Being asked 'How do you do it?' implies that a) I am doing it, which I am not—I am doing what everybody else is doing, which is trying their best, and b) What is a balance, anyway? A balance teeter-totters. It moves, something gives and other things take, and other days it might be the opposite.

On the importance of not being perfect: 
Humans want nothing more than to be accepted, and I'm no different. That doesn't happen by presenting perfection. I believe in showing your dirty hands and your bumps and bruises and your faults, because that's what makes people feel connected—and isn't that kind of the purpose of, you know, being on Earth?

On dealing with jerks: 
I have gotten to a happy place the last five years or so where I have so much sympathy toward people who are unhappy or jerky. Like, 'Oh, man, we have one ride here — that's how you are going to spend it? What a bummer.

On raising her two daughters: 
I love having girls. The truest thing in life is that girls rule, boys drool.
