Zooey Claire Deschanel born January 17th 1980 in Los Angeles. She has incredibly blue eyes, truly adorable. Zooey is an actress, musician, and singer/songwriter. Her parents Caleb Dechanel a cinematographer/director and Mary Jo Deschanel (née Weir). Zooey is French (from her paternal grandfather) and Irish descent. She was named after Zooey Glass the male protagonist of J.D. Salinger's 1961 novella Franny and Zooey. Emily Deschanel her older sister is also an actress and stars in the TV series Bones.Zooey lived in Los Angeles, but spent much of her childhood traveling because her father shot films on location; she later said that she "hated all the traveling ... I'm really happy now that I had the experience, but at the time I was just so miserable to have to leave my friends in Los Angeles and go to places where they didn't have any food I liked or things I was used to."She attended Crossroads which is a private preparatory schoo in Santa Monica California. There she made friends with Jake Gyllenhaal and Kate Hudson. She sang throughout high school aspiring to have a career in musical theatre. She attended Northwestern University for a whole seven months until she ended up dropping out to work as an actress.
Sorry fellas this beautiful girl from next door is taken. She got married to Ben Gibbard in September 2009 who is the lead vocalist for The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie.
Zooey tried being a vegan being allergic to eggs,dairy and wheat gluten but that failed because her food sensitivities made it difficult to stay healthy.
She has stated that she has attention deficit disorder but these days, who doesn't have that?
I like her because shes another one of those actors that when she acts it seems like she is being herself.
As far as the films and shows she acts in? I personally like Almost Famous,The Good Girl(which wasn't a very good movie),Big Trouble,The New Guy,Frasier,Elf,The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,Failure to Launch,Live Free or Die,Bridge to Terabithia,Tin Man,The Happening and Yes Man.
