She may be a bit of a kid at heart, but Zooey Deschanel doesn’t want any of her own. ”[Having kids has] never been my focus,” she tells the current issue of Marie Claire. ”My sister was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids–but it was never an ambition, something, like, I need … I like working. That’s what I like doing. I like to work.”
I have to say, I’ve been on the fence about Zooey for awhile, but this interview painted a pretty interesting picture of her. (She also spoke about getting spit on by a bully in middle school: “I really don’t know why she spit at me. I guess I wasn’t allowed to talk to her. I remember I couldn’t believe it.”) And she’s not alone in not wanting kids; plenty of successful Hollywood stars plan on staying rugrat-free. Here are 10 more!
Hi, did you have plans for this evening? I did, but then I canceled them because A) it’s pouring rain, B) it’s freezing out, and C) Fox is airing new episodes of “Glee,” “New Girl,” and “Raising Hope” tonight. So I’m making excuses and going home to sit around in my undies, paint my nails, and watching the boob tube like the rockstar that I am. Keep reading »
If you’re anything like me, you track rising movie starlets through a patented system of chicken bone voodoo and Precog upkeep. It’s a good system but sometimes people fall through the cracks. Like when the lil’ water baldies began rolling out the name ‘Zooey’ over and over again, I had to consult other sources to get a reading of what was up. Turns out there’s this girl that everyone is love with. This is her (above). Keep reading »
My dear readers, I have a confession to make: my name is Kate and I am a television addict. Even though my living room is less than 200 square feet, I have a 40-inch television. On Friday night, I briefly considered canceling my birthday party because I’d accidentally scheduled it for the same time as the series finale of “Smallville.” And truth be told, I am looking forward to the return of “True Blood” this summer as much as I am going to the beach. See, I love television. And yes, I would marry it if I could.
For my fellow television enthusiasts out there, this is a big week. This week, the major networks are holding their upfronts, grand events—think big presentations and musical numbers—during which they unveil their lineups for the fall and winter. NBC and Fox upfronts are today. ABC presents on Tuesday. CBS is Wednesday. And The CW takes their turn on Thursday. For advertisers, this is how they decide when they’d like to run commercials. For the press, it’s time to get the lowdown on what’s coming down the pipeline. And for television addicts, it’s a big old tease since most people won’t be able to actually watch the new shows until September. But who cares? It’s still like being able to see into the television future! So, every day this week, I’ll be bringing you five new shows that have me a tad bit giddy. Check out today’s offerings after the jump.
