----
!This actress provides examples of:
* ActorAllusion: In ''Burning Love'', her character references being in a cult. Veronica visited a cult a few times in ''VeronicaMars''.
** In ''Hit And Run'', she references being a sociopath which she played on ''{{Series/Heroes}}.''
* AsHerself: In the ''GossipGirl'' finale, she appears to help Rachel Bilson rehearse for the movie adaptation of Dan's book.
* CatSmile
* CatholicSchoolGirlsRule: She's saving the uniform from her Catholic school for her wedding night.
* CelebrityVoiceActor: As the titular ''GossipGirl'' she isn't seen until the SeriesFinale [[spoiler: (when she appears [[AsHimself as herself]])]] but she's certainly heard (if not credited); she also doubled as ''VeronicaMars'''s narrator and lent her pipes to ''TheClevelandShow'' and ''{{WesternAnimation/AstroBoy}}''.
** She's also to play the lead in {{Disney}}'s ''{{Disney/Frozen}}''.
* CloudCuckoolander: Just... watch the video below.
* CutenessProximity: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=t5jw3T3Jy70# Reduced to a blubbering mess by the mere presence of a sloth.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She's a dedicated animal lover and loves sloths so much, she started crying TearsOfJoy when she encountered one.
* HideYourPregnancy: In Season 2 of ''HouseOfLies'', it's not only hidden, but digitally removed during her sex scenes.
* HotChickInABadassSuit: Between the season 4 teaser for ''Series/VeronicaMars'' and her role as [[HouseOfLies Jeannie]], Kristen has demonstrated she can ''rock'' the women's suit look.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Usually. Though, he doesn't end up as the love interest she does share scenes with Danny [=DeVito=] in ''Film/WhenInRome'' possibly one of three adult actors shorter than her (the others are Verne Troyer and Creator/PeterDinklage, to save your guessing).
* IdenticalStranger: Looks a lot like Sarah Chalke from ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' and Alison Mack from ''Series/{{Smallville}}''.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: She plays unpleasant characters in ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', ''ForgettingSarahMarshall'' and ''{{Burlesque}}'' (plus Gossip Girl isn't exactly sweetness and light what with all her tattling - and to be perfectly honest, even Veronica Mars has some rough edges to her, albeit totally justifiable considering the show was FreudianExcuse Central), but many describe her as being ridiculously nice in the flesh. StephenTobolowsky recounts how she was 'terrified' and kept asking if he was okay while filming a scene on ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' ...while Stephen was recovering from a broken neck.
* OlderThanTheyLook: In an interview, Kristen complained about receiving kids' menus at restaurants well into her teens.
* OneOfUs: She likes Comic Con and several other interests.
* [[PromotedFanboy Promoted Fangirl]]: Kristen was a big fan of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' before she appeared on the show as Elle.
* StarmakingRole: Kristen got famous for playing in ''ForgettingSarahMarshall''. Most fanboys swear she was famous [[VeronicaMars much earlier]], though.
* TeensAreShort: Her 5'1" height is one reason she was so good at playing teenagers into her twenties.
* ThoseTwoActors: She has a habit of showing up in works with Dianna Agron (such as ''Heroes'') even if they don't share scenes.
* {{Typecasting}}: As mentioned above, she has a slight history playing the TitleCharacter.
** She also has a history of playing either [[DeadpanSnarker Deadpan Snarkers]] or [[TheWoobie Woobies]]. Sometimes she plays characters who are both.
* WaterWorks[=/=]TearsOfJoy: "If I'm not between a 3 and a 7 on the emotional scale, ''I am in tears''."
