I’m off next week for a much needed vacation — Costa Rica! Surfing! Yoga! Beer! — leaving The Frisky in the very capable hands of your regular bloggers. Consider this video my parting gift. There’s a dance sequence in “(500) Days Of Summer,” in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt is so high on life that he dances through the streets of L.A., but Zooey Deschanel‘s own sweet moves were absent. On his website, hitRECord.org, Joe posted this video and wrote:
I mean, it really felt a bit wrong — Zooey’s born for musical numbers, and the one day she wasn’t on set, we go and shoot a musical number? The wrong had to be righted. So when it came time to start promoting the movie, we had the idea to kill two birds with one stone…. It’s a work of art in its own right. And to me, it seems like so much more effective an endorsement of the movie than any interview or fashion shoot…. Plus it was about as purely fun a day on a set as I’ve ever had. Hope you like it!
I like it so much, I am overlooking the fact that JGL still hasn’t responded to my Twitter date invite. Keep reading »
Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon Levitt, stars of the upcoming ZOMG-I-cannot-wait-to-see-it movie “500 Days Of Summer,” filmed a mash up of a scene from their movie with the incredibly, uh, compelling love story of “Sid & Nancy.” Only Zooey plays Sid Vicious, and Joseph plays Nancy Spungen. Awesomeness. (A few NSFW language issues — they bleep out the f-word, but keep s**t. Just so you’re forewarned.) Keep reading »
It’s hard to look all darling when you’re freaking baking inside a worrisomely hot car and not say, chillaxin’ in the breezy Bahamas. Somehow, our style icon-o-the-day, indie fashion maven Zooey Deschanel, makes toasty weather chic look easy and reminds us of cotton candy, photo booths, lounge chairs, and that sweet, sweet patio water mister we’re saving up for. Luckily, these cute shoes are cool and way cheaper. Keep reading »
Yesterday we told you about The Gap’s new intern, Kanye West, who joins a long line of celebrities (temporarily) giving up their high-paying day jobs in order to learn something new from the ground up. All of this got me thinking about which celebs we’d like to have intern at The Frisky and what tasks we would give them. After the jump, some of our writers and editors dish on who they’d like to fetch coffee and, uh, other stuff. Keep reading »
I’ve always thought the ads for cotton were nicely done, but this new one blows away all past commercials for the fabric of our lives. In it, Zooey Deschanel prances through her day, performing, writing a song, checking out a flea market, browsing through records, and trying on various adorable outfits made of cotton.
When other starlets appear in commercials or put their names on products, we think of them as sellouts, i.e., Lindsay and her line of hosiery. Zooey, on the other hand, has managed to use her image to make money without damaging her reputation. In fact, we love her even more for it! And cotton isn’t the only thing she’s selling. Zooey recently launched a mini-line of sunglasses with Oliver Peoples. Other celebrities should follow her classy example.

Hi, guys. So, this is my favorite movie: “500 Days Of Summer.” I haven’t actually seen it yet, but the trailer is above, and honestly if it doesn’t turn out to be my favorite movie, I will be super surprised. Also, can I please walk into an elevator and meet someone like Joseph Gordon Levitt, please? Thanks. Keep reading »
One of our favorite actresses and singers, Zooey Deschanel, is engaged to singer Ben Gibbard, of the band Death Cab For Cutie. We had no idea they were dating, but we think this is an adorable match. May there be a duet in sight?! [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
I’m really excited about all the classic movies coming on Turner Classic Movies on Sunday. It’s been ages since I watched “Little Women.” The Sci-Fi channel is re-airing “Tin Man” on Sunday, in case you missed it last year. Zooey Deschanel plays Dorothy in this made-for-TV adaptation of “The Wizard of Oz.” Also, I’m excited about “70′s Fever” on the History channel because I swear I was born in the wrong time. Studio 54, here I come. Oh, but hold the cocaine. Keep reading »
