Gearing up for the theatrical release of the "Veronica Mars" movie, Kristen Bell admitted in an interview with HuffPost Live to being similar to her television-turned-movie character. However, she also recognizes the ways in which she's grown since playing the onscreen heroine in the early 2000s.

"I'm a people pleaser by nature and my biggest fear is that someone won't like me," she told HuffPost Live host Ricky Camilleri. "But I think I've gotten a bit stronger since playing Veronica, and I've been able to be myself, even if that self is pretty sassy."

"I like that Veronica's main weapon is her wit," Bell continued. "Her honor and integrity also, but her sass is what she uses against the bad guys and I think that's really cool."

Bell isn't the only one who thinks that's cool. The "Veronica Mars" movie will premiere Friday, March 14 at SXSW by way of nearly $6 million raised by fans on Kickstarter.
