Icky in pink Lake Bell’s pet bug­bear

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

Last Oc­to­ber, Lake Bell and hus­band Scott Camp­bell wel­comed baby Nova into the world. Bell, like many moth­ers be­fore her, was hor­ri­fied to dis­cover the world of pink things await­ing her new­born daugh­ter.

“I’ve be­come staunchly op­posed to any­thing pink. As long as I can con­trol it, she’s not wear­ing pink. I know the day will come. I love my daugh­ter and what­ever she wants, I will lis­ten. If pink is her thing, okay. But let’s talk about tex­tures. Let’s talk about shades.

“It doesn’t all have to be bub­blegum pink, does it?”

Bell be­gan her screen ca­reer in 2002 with two episodes of ER. She has worked steadily since: she was Alec Baldwin’s wife in It’s Com­pli­cated, John Hamm’s love in­ter­est in Mil­lion Dollar Arm, and a se­ries regular on The Prac­tice and Bos­ton Legal.

While work­ing on the sec­ond sea­son of How to Make It i n Amer­ica, she met tat­too artist Scott Camp­bell. The cou­ple mar­ried in 2013. She has sub­se­quently graced the cover of New York Mag­a­zine, clothed in a full- body flo­ral tat­too trans­fer de­signed by her hus­band. But she has yet to be inked.

“I keep t ry­ing t o get him drunk, but no,” she says. “It’s weird. I’m mar­ried to one of the most fa­mous tat­too artists in the world and I’ve got noth­ing. But what could I get? He has ev­ery­thing. I just have to live vi­car­i­ously.”
