Forget being scary. The new movie, Pulse, promises to be beautiful. After all, Veronica Mars star, Kristen Bell, says she’s the ugliest person in the film!

The actress, who ain’t too shabby on the eyes herself, says she was initially intimidated by the model looks of co-stars Ian Somerhalder (formerly of Lost) and Christina Milian.

“Christina Milian is one of the most beautiful people I’ve seen up close … I actually was angry when the producers first hired Ian. I was like no no no no. Throughout history, the girl has been the pretty one in the movie … They were like, we’ll ugly him down, we’ll ugly him down. It didn’t work.”

Kristen Bell Is Ready to Host

Aside from smoking co-stars, Bell’s latest film, which centers on the dead using the Internet as a means to take life from the living (naturally), heads into scary territory, something Bell was nervous about.

“I’ve never done a horror movie before and I’m always very, very wary of scary things … Literally, if you were to jump out from behind a corner I would instantly be in tears … I saw the preview for Leprechaun and I still have dreams about that guy.”

We dream about that movie, too, Kirsten. But that may be more due to Jennifer Aniston that any frightening little green people.

Pulse makes its way into theaters August 11. And if Bell wants to truly be scared, she just has to glance at the Nick Nolte mug shot.
