Why Are Manic Pixie Dream Girls Getting Dumber?

Look, let’s put aside the fact that manic pixie dream girls are inherently irritating, because the purpose of a woman’s life is not to make a boring accountant realize that he should run around naked in traffic. Unless that is her job, somehow. Unless it’s some sort of life coaching thing. Then I guess… life coaching is a field that really exists, in the real world, that real people pay for. People make choices. But that is never the case with manic pixie dream girls in the movies or television, because they never seem to have calculated career paths. They don’t want career paths! They just want to live!

That’s fine. That trope has existed for a very, very long time. The problem is not that that trope exists, it’s that it’s getting worse. Read more…

These pre-fame pictures of Zooey Deschanel circa 2001 made me like her again. Before her extensive collection of vintage-y cotton dresses and her perfectly sideswiped bangs, she was wearing fishnets just like the rest of us alterna-chicks.  I will be merciful on her chunky shoes and wrong-length hemlines, because really, I was in much worse style shape 11 years ago. Three words: velvet leopard pants. Yes, I did. [Daily Mail UK]

  • Zooey Deschanel filed for divorce from husband Ben Gibbard on December 27, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The couple married in 2009 and separated two months ago. Bummer, dude. But hey, at least she’s free now to date JGL! [TMZ]
  • Jada Pinkett Smith has supposedly retained a divorce lawyer who has repped Britney Spears in the past. Neither Jada nor Will Smith have actually confirmed they’re splitting, though. [Huffington Post]
  • Casey Anthony uploaded a bizarre YouTube video diary, which “The Today Show” has confirmed is her. In the video, Casey Anthony talks about her current life but does not mention her daughter Caylee, whom she was acquitted of killing last year. [Boston.com]

Zooey Deschanel & JGL: Can They Just Date Already?

Last week, we posted a video of Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon Levitt singing a New Year’s Eve song. Zooey posted the video and explained her 12 year relationship with JGL..

“I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years. We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since.”

theBERRY is in agreement with me that — if JGL isn’t going to date our lovely Julie — Zooey and JGL should just date already. Click on over to see 25 photos of the twosome looking stupidly adorable together. Read more…

Well isn’t this adorkable? Oh crap, I just remembered we hate that word. Fine. Let me start over. Isn’t this lovely? Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, back together again, this time covering Nancy Wilson’s “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” Julie would absolutely hate me for saying this, but luckily she is on a plane to Mexico right now, so here it goes: I really kind of wish Zooey and JGL would give romance a shot in real life. I like them together. By the way, if any of you send this post to Julie, I’ll know.

So this reminds me — what the heck are you doing for New Year’s Eve, Frisky readers? So far, I have no plans. I am either going to Rhode Island to hang out with someone very tall, chilling out on my couch with someone very furry, or doing something in between, like drinking champagne straight from the bottle on a street corner in Brooklyn. What are YOUR New Year’s Eve plans?
