'The Hunger Games': Kristen Bell Dressed as Katniss for Her 30th Birthday
And you thought you were a big fan of 'The Hunger Games.' For her 30th birthday two summers ago, 'House of Lies' star Kristen Bell went all out to show her 'Games' love -- up to and including dressing up like Katniss Everdeen.
"All my friends dressed as the characters and I dressed as Katniss," she told Chris Harnick from Huffington Post TV about her themed 30th birthday soiree. "I was head-to-toe in spandex with a fire cape and carried a bow and arrow."
It wasn't just Kristen who showed her Panem pride. "I had friends that went all out. [...] I had friends who came as Cato and Clove and were dressed in weird sewn-together fabric leaves and army colors. They had the football black under their eyes and they had taken all the knives in their house, even the butcher knives, and wrapped them in duct tape so they wouldn't be too sharp and flung them over their body like sort of ammo lines. They had all these knives taped to them -- it was amazing. I had a couple Effie Trinkets. It was pretty exceptional. People dressed up like tracker jackers. They were like bumble bees, but with huge horns."
Bell, who you obviously know best from 'Veronica Mars' (and her overall awesomeness), is also still holding out hope of being cast as Johanna in the 'Hunger Games' sequels 'Catching Fire' and 'Mockingjay.'
"I am trying to stay on top of it and not age too rapidly so that I can still be cast," she said.
