17-Year-Old Zooey Deschanel Wrote An Angry Letter To Vogue

There are feminists in Hollywood after all: the Tumblr blog WellsBones unearthed a letter Vogue published written by a 17-year-old Zooey Deschanel, long before she was famous. Without context, I don’t know what Zooey wrote to Vogue in response to. But to be honest, the question she posed to Vogue — “Why would you want to limit the spectrum of beauty to an ‘ideal’ when you, as a popular women’s magazine, have the opportunity to expand it?” — could apply to any issue of Vogue, really. Zooey tweeted her delight at the letter being dug up: “wrote this letter to vogue when I was 17 & someone found it! proud of my feminist teen self.” Zooey Deschanel: twee princess and angry teenaged letter writer? It’s too good to be true.
