Kristen Bell threatens her daughter’s oral health if they expose the ‘Frozen 2’ plot to their friends
Most working parents — including Kristen Bell — sign confidentiality agreements at work. When abiding by the terms of the legal documents, most of us don’t actually think about our young children. After all, how many of our little tots would give a crap about any “trade secrets” or the boring goings-on around the workplace? However, when you are a movie star and are playing the lead in pretty much the biggest kid’s movie of the year — Frozen 2 — things get a bit more complicated. If Bell accidentally leaked the ending to her children, and they told their classmates, pretty soon the whole plot could be exposed on the internet. Which would be seriously bad, right? Well, according to the actress, that’s almost what happened — but she took extreme measures to save the day.
In an interview with SiriusXM, Kristen revealed that she told her daughters — Lincoln, 6, and Delta, 5 — all about the latest adventures of Elsa and Anna, because she wanted to get cool mom cred.
“I told my kids everything,” she admitted. “I was in the mood to be a cool mom.”
However, before spilling all the movie’s secrets, she threatened them first. “I tell them two things. Number one: All your teeth are going to fall out, which is the best thing you can say to a kid. Number two: I was like, ‘OK, here’s what happens.'”
Apparently this went down right after she read the script. After the fact, she realized the potential severity of the situation and said: “They were excited and then it occurred to me that I was in breach of my contract…It was a mistake.”
“I said to [my kids], ‘It’s very important that you don’t tell anyone at school.'” Whether they did or not, we will never know. “The teeth thing I stand by,”she joked.
Now that the movie is out, she is “thankful” that she can no longer get sued by Disney.
In Frozen 2, which hits theaters November 22, Elsa’s magical ice powers could be the key to saving the kingdom. All our our favorite characters will be back again — Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, Hans, and Sven — in addition to some new characters in Arendelle, including Lieutenant Matthias, voiced by Sterling K. Brown (who is going to be singing in the movie FYI!) Anna and Elsa’s mother, Queen Iduna, voiced by Evan Rachel Wood, will also make an appearance via a flashback scene.
A few of the movie’s songs have already been released, and we honestly can’t get them out of our head. Is “The Next Right Thing” going to be the new “Let It Go”? We will have to wait until next weekend to find out!
