Kristen Bell's Beach Bag Essentials
What's in Her Bag?
In her role as an up-and-coming management consultant on the hit Showtime comedy-drama series House of Lies, Kristen Bell knows how to play the corporate game. But away from all of that, the 34-year-old actress finds peace on the sand with a totally different kind of game: "I love being by the water and playing Sudoku or doing a crossword puzzle," she says. "I buy a few of the same puzzle book so my friends and I can play the same one and race to finish."
