This actress has had her share of ups and downs over the years working in the fickle world of show business.
And on Tuesday, Kristen Bell was left dangling – literally – when her duet with James Corden hit a few snags.
The aerial performance by the 36-year-old beauty and 38-year-old talk show host went horribly and hilariously wrong on The Late Late Show.

The bit started off on the right note with some gentle banter about love. ‘You know Kristen, I was just thinking — love can be a funny thing,’ Corden said. ‘You know, I love love, James,’ Bell replied.
Corden declared, ‘And I love love, too, Kristen, but love can lift us up.’ The duo then launched into a rendition of the 1990 classic Up Where We Belong.
Immediately, the pair were in trouble as Bell was propelled by a harness towards the ceiling and Corden was left awkwardly hanging just above the stage.When James finally began to rise up, the Veronica Mars actress fell back down.
The two continued to sing as they were lifted up into the air and back down again with seemingly no rhyme or reason.As they passed each other, they attempted to balance each other out. ‘We’re supposed to be even,’ Bell cried out. ‘Can you make us equal?’
For a brief few seconds, Bell and Corden found each other midair. ‘Finally!’ Bell squealed before going back down.
As the performance wrapped up, Corden joked that someone on his team may be looking for a new job.
‘That was an absolute disaster! Who was responsible for this?’ he said. ‘We rehearsed it and rehearsed it and rehearsed it.’
