Kristen Bell: I’m Going To Let My Daughter Watch Sexy Material

Variety Breakthrough of the Year Awards

Kristen Bell says she and husband Dax Shepard plan to let Lincoln watch whatever she wants. The House of Lies actress appeared on E!’s Chelsea Lately last Monday when she talked about her now 9-month-old daughter.

She said, “She can watch whatever she wants. People ask, ‘Oh, well you’ve done some sexy material. Do you not want her to see that?’ And I’m like, ‘My guess is if she’s anything like the other 5 billion people on the planet, she’s gonna grow up and enjoy sex, so I’m not gonna be shocked by that.’”

She added, “I just think you’re setting yourself up for disaster if you try to keep them little. She’s gonna grow up. She has—newsflash!—a vagina, and she’s gonna figure it out one day, and more power to her.”

Bell also admits motherhood has made her a little bit of a worrier after sharing a story about being scared on a skiing trip.

When Handler asked, “Did you feel that way before you had a baby?” she replied, “No, I didn’t. Maybe that’s part of it. Now I’m in too deep! What am I supposed to do?”

Bell recently had a fun interview with co-star Don Cheadle for Vanity Fair.

At one point she says of her pregnancy, “I had a lot of good hormones.”

Cheadle then replies, “You did. You were really in good spirits. You never even broke down and had a ridiculous cry for no reason.”

    I’m all for making sure my child has a healthy view on sex and her body but seriously? Can’t let them be little for ever? How about not keeping them little longer is what is the problem with girls trying to act too grown up and having sex at 12/13. I think we should shield our kids from the adult world until they are old enough to understand. You can create a healthy viewpoint without exposing them at a young age. I have a feeling ms bells lack of concern will bite her in the butt when her daughter gets into too mature stuff before high school.

    I don’t see where she said she will let her watch it at 12/13 or even at a young age at all. She jut said she’s not going to be unrealistic about it either.

    Yes I highly doubt she meant gat she will let her watch that stuff at 5 years old lol, you can’t take things like that so seriously…there is no gauge of context or any clarification.

    “News flash she has a vagina”? What adult speaks that way, especially about their little baby. Odd woman.
    And I’m guessing like the other 5 billion people, Lincoln will most probably not want to see her parents being ‘sexy’.

    Simple odd comments to say about your newborn daughter.

    I think those comments are weird as well. There’s lots of other (NICER) ways of saying what she said. She’s being deliberately provocative… it’s just odd.
