Sometimes life as an actress and a writer could go beyond touching or inspiring the lives of the audience or reader to entirely changing the life of the actor behind the scene or even that of the author. Arts is indeed a therapy and the likes of Lake Bell surely agree to this.
Having played a role in such emotional films as No Strings Attached, Man Up and of course her latest work, I Do… Until I Don’t, Bell’s self-confessed cynical and anti-institutional ideology about marriage fused out over time after meeting her heartthrob.
Born on March 24, 1979, as Lake Siegel Bell, the American actress and screenwriter has featured in a lot more films and TV series some of which include How to Make It in America, The Secret Life of Pets, Million Dollar Arm, It’s Complicated, and Home Again, among a host others.
Bell belongs to the White-American ethnicity and is an American by nationality. She began her acting career in 2002, with a film titled Speakeasy but her first remarkable role as an actress was in the 2003 psychological thriller I Love Your Work where she played a female lead alongside the American actor, Jeff Goldblum. Bell has since then appeared in more films and TV series, especially those that talk about love and relationships. The popular dramedy, Miss Match, falls in this category with Bell playing the role of a Match-maker’s best friend who happens to have flings with men. Other romantic comedies like Over Her Dead Body and What Happens in Vegas both produced in 2008, has Bell taking up roles that cannot be undermined by the audience.
Among all the romantic films Bell has worked on, the 2017 comedy I Do… Until I Don’t, seem to have more effect on her ideas about marriage. While working on the project, Lake Bell was determined to look into the matter of “commitment and marriage” especially as it directly contradicts her near-changing perception about the institution. It is a near-changing perception because she gradually began to face the fact about what marriage is all about when she met her sweetheart and father of her children. Let’s get to know who Lake Bell’s husband really is.
