Despicable Me 3 Kristen says is a mixed bag. 

Talking about her character in the film and asked if she is anything like Lucy Wilde, she says, “She’s a lot more caffeinated than me.”  

Asked if she was worried about making the third Despicable Me film, she says, “We had no worries because we have the most unbelievably good filmmakers. We are very lucky.”

Revealing where he gets his voices from, Steve jokes, “I just listen to the voices in my head!” Adding, “My children are responsible for Felonious Gru’s voice. I tried about a few on my kids and that was the one that made them laugh.”
