INTERVIEW: Hart of Dixie‘s Laura Bell Bundy loves Charlie Sheen’s “bear hugs

We think any girl who can handle Charlie Sheen is fierce. But Laura Bell Bundy also acts in two shows and has a country music career. Talk about multitasking!

Laura Bell Bundy is a busy lady these days. She’s currently juggling two shows: The CW‘s Hart of Dixie and Charlie Sheen‘s comedy Anger Management on FX.

We would think having Charlie Sheen as a co-worker would be enough to keep any one person more than busy, but Bundy tells SheKnows that she doesn’t think Sheen deserves a lot of his reputation.

“I think there’s a little bit of hype,” Bundy says. “He’s a real human being. I actually think that what scares all of us about someone like Charlie is that he’s always honest. We can’t handle the truth.”

In fact, she says when she first met the former Two and a Half Men star, he “bear-hugged” her.

“He was so nice,” Bundy says. She continues by explaining her reaction to the hug, saying, “Um, all right. I don’t have a chance to not like you [referring to Sheen] because you just bear-hugged me.”

“He really cares about the show, and he really cares about his work,” she tells us.

Switching gears to Hart of Dixie, Bundy says Shelby’s pregnancy gave her a little baby fever of her own.

“I started to get those maternal instincts. I started, like, rubbing the fake tummy,” she says.

When it comes to a future rekindling for Shelby and Brick on the show, the actress thinks, “Yes. It just depends on how often I’m working on Anger Management.”

Sounds promising to us!

On top of her work as an actress, Bundy is a country singer. She recently released a new song called “Kentucky Dirty” (see the music video below), and Perez Hilton is calling the gal the Britney Spears of country.

At the end of the day, Bundy is very passionate about her career, whether it be singing or acting.

“I just want to be in a position where I’m able to create and create from the heart and experience joy from it,” she says.
