Kristen Bell has confessed she and fiance Dax Shepard are "severely codependent" on one another.

The Veronica Mars star and her Parenthood actor fiance recently produced and starred in a film together called Outrun, which Dax also directed.

Kristen revealed: "We actually grew closer by spending every single minute together for about nine weeks."

She added: "We drove to work together and we came home together ... It's very organic for us to spend every moment together. We're severely codependent. It's a disease!"

The film is expected to be released next summer. Meanwhile, The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star has returned to TV in new Showtime comedy House Of Lies, about a management consulting firm that specialises in damage control.

Kristen said she realised she missed TV but wanted to do something edgier than anything she had done before. She also liked the idea of being part of an ensemble cast.

House Of Lies stars Don Cheadle as a slick, ruthless management consultant. Kristen plays the ambitious Jeannie, who loves the high life but can flirt with the low life.

"If he's a great actor he's an even cooler person and I don't think there's a ton of people you can say that about," she said of Don. "But he's a really genuine, grounded, nice, funny guy."

The 31-year-old actress also revealed she is such huge fan of the hit Showtime drama Homeland, starring Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, she got overexcited when she met them at a recent party.

Kristen said: "I felt at one point one of them kind of take a step back like, 'She's a little intense,' and then I got insecure like, 'Oh, no, you're THAT person'."

Be honest about your shortcomings. The sooner you ask for help, the easier it will be to overcome an obstacle. You may require basic training, a hands on tutorial or an official certificate. Admitting your ignorance will make others admire you. Anyone can profess expertise. It takes someone with real courage to expose their vulnerability. The skills you acquire will enhance your earning potential. Anyone who pokes fun at your lack of knowledge is projecting their own insecurities onto you.More
