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 »

Zooey Deschanel’s Not Apologizing For Being A Girly Girl

“Here’s the thing about being a girlie girl. I think there was a generation before us that felt like they needed to act like men to be taken seriously, like they had to use their sexuality to take control of people. I don’t judge people for that. But I don’t want to take all my clothes off and use myself as an object. It’s part of the machine and I don’t think that necessarily pushes us forward as women. I think you can still be girlie and maintain your power. The fact that you associate being girlie with being non-threatening, that is I mean, I can’t think of more blatant example of playing into exactly the thing that we’re trying to fight against. I can’t be girlie? Why do I need to be defined aesthetically by someone else’s perceptions of what makes me seem like someone who should be taken seriously? I’m going to wear whatever I want to wear, because I’m expressing myself, and I deserve that right. And I like the way that looks. You’re not demeaning yourself by acting girlie. I think the fact that people are associating being girlie with weakness, that needs to be examined. Not me dressing girlie. I don’t think that undermines my power at all.”

Zooey Deschanel Says We’re “All Bitches”

“['500 Days Of Summer' was] actually very misunderstood. I can’t tell you how many guys, and girls, are like, ‘You did him wrong!’ What, she’s a bitch because she didn’t want to date that guy? So? Are we bitches because we have our own opinions? If that makes me a bitch, or that makes women bitches, then maybe we’re all bitches.”

Zooey Deschanel comes to the defense of manic pixie dreamgirls everywhere who got a bad reputation from the way her flick “500 Days Of Summer” ended. I definitely don’t understand why anyone would believe Summer was a “bitch” just because she fell in love with someone else. Anyway, between this comment to New York magazine and the angry letter Zooey wrote to Vogue magazine as a 17-year-old, I think I’ve found a new feminist in Hollywood! [New York] Keep reading »

Rashida Jones Can’t Stop Talking About Her Kiss With Zooey Deschanel

Rashida Jones just can’t stop talking about her experience making out with Zooey Deschanel, whose girlfriend she plays in “My Idiot Brother.” Or is it that people just can’t stop asking her about it? Back in May, she told the Advocate of her first sapphic experience, “‘I was like, ‘Oh, my God, girls are so pretty and soft. No stubble burn! What am I doing with guys?’ [Laughs] I haven’t dipped back since, but I was very appreciative of the experience.” A few days later, she told GQ, “I feel like I’ve come a long way from my first job, when I had to get mouth-to-mouth resuscitation from Rip Torn.” Earlier this week, she told VH1 News, “The boys were so giggly on set…they loved it!”

Last night, she appeared on “Chelsea Lately.” And of course the topic came up and she gave some new info. Keep reading »

Zooey Deschanel Gets Flummoxed After Being Called “Adorable”

“My mom told me when I get compliments, to cover my ears. I mean, I’m sorry. I’m so embarrassed now. Thank you for saying that. Thank you. I don’t know if I’m adorable … Stop, stop. No, no, no, no, no, no. Now I’m really, I’m flustered. Thank you.”

Zooey Deschanel responds during a press conference for her TV show “New Girl” to a reporter’s very strange question, “What does it feel like to be adorable?” I’m not sure exactly how the reporter wanted her to answer (it’s kind of like asking, “How does it feel to be 5’4?”), but I’m surprised by how thrown off Zooey got. Why is it so hard to accept a compliment? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
