Kristen Bell talks "The Hunger Games" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live"

Everyone seems to be talking about "The Hunger Games" right now, and on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Weeknights, 12 a.m. ET on ABC) actress Kristen Bell admitted that she's more than a little obsessed with the book.

The "Hunger Games" super fan said she was so blown away by Suzanne Collins' book that she believes "this is the piece of literature that in a hundred years we'll look back on and it will be the best thing we've ever written."

Although her husband Dax Shepard wasn't so keen to read the books for himself, Bell gradually wore down his resistance until he seemed to be on the cusp of giving in.

However, an airport encounter with an avid tween "Hunger Games" fan pushed him right back in the other direction.

So what's a girl to do? Bell took it upon herself to read her favorite book aloud to him, of course!

It took her around three weeks, with Bell reading him a couple of chapters a night. By the end, "he was really into it" she assured Jimmy Kimmel.

"The Hunger Games" is in movie theaters Friday March 23. Check out what "The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence had to say about the fans on "Late Show" Tuesday night.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs weeknights at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
