Stop Calling Zooey Deschanel “Adorkable”

Zooey Deschanel, America’s favourite manic pixie dream girl, is no longer a child. She’s a grown ass woman – 35 years old, to be exact – who’s engaged and about to have a baby. Yet people still keep calling her “adorkable”, and she’s not happy about it. While it may be true of Jess, her New Girl character, she just can’t relate to the term.

From The Huffington Post:

“I don’t always identify, perhaps, with the way that I’m portrayed in certain public contexts. I try to stay away from that sort of thing,” she explained, adding that the word “adorkable” was a successful “New Girl” marketing campaign. “That was something that was calculated, you know what I mean? That was our marketing department at Fox and they did a really good job with our first season, but that’s a word that describes the character that I play, not me. I don’t personally have identification with that word myself.”

“In addition, I don’t really care what people think of me,” she continued. “I know that sounds crazy because you’re supposed to care about what people think of you, I guess, as an actor, but I really don’t. Obviously I’m grateful for all of the opportunities that I’ve had thus far, including ‘New Girl,’ but I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who knows me use that word to describe me, so it’s not of any consequence to me.”

Methinks the lady doth protest too much, to be honest. People who have to state that they don’t care what anyone thinks of them – particularly when no one even asked about that – more than likely does. That’s not hating on her – New Girl was pretty good for the first couple of seasons, though I find this season a bit painful. But like… who makes such a big deal over the word “adorkable”? She needs to embrace that manic pixie dreamgirl shit, because it’s the reason she has a career. She plays the part well. She’s created her own niche. And if she’s trying to act like she’s not twee as shit in real life, I hate to break it to the universe, but uh… SHE IS. Has she ever listened to her own records? It’s not an insult, so she should stop taking it like one.

Zooey Deschanel is going to marry the dude that knocked her up

The last time I checked, it was 2015, right? I’m not just imagining that? I wanted to double check, because some puritanical bullshit is still going down in this country whereby women are getting knocked up by dudes and then a week later, announcing that they’re engaged to said dude because, I dunno, I guess if you’re having a baby with someone, the Bible says he needs to be your husband? Nevermind that they’re doing it the wrong way around, but whatevs! Zooey Deschanel is marrying the father of her future child, Jacob Pechenik!

Love, marriage, and a baby carriage! Pregnant Zooey Deschanel is engaged to boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

The happy news comes one week after the New Girl actress, 35, and her producer fiance, 42, confirmed that they’re expecting their first child together. Deschanel is due to give birth to the little one this summer.

Well, good for them, I guess. I’m sure this will totally be a long and fruitful marriage, considering it was borne out of the fact that she forgot to take her pill one morning or he didn’t pull out quick enough. Anyhoo… congrats!

Zooey Deschanel is pregnant!

Last summer, Zooey Deschanel went public with her boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, a director she worked with on some movie called Rock the Kasbah a while back. Things are apparently going well, especially since Zooey just announced that she’s pregnant with her first child!

The New Girl star is expecting her first child with Jacob Pechenik this summer, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” Deschanel tells PEOPLE.

The mom-to-be, 34, and her producer boyfriend, 42, have been dating since mid 2014.

OH GOD, not the dreaded “over the moon” statement! That’s THE WORST! Why do people do it? Why?!

Anyhow, congrats to Zooey – she’s a nice lady and I’m sure the baby will be cute. Not so sure this relationship is going to go the long haul, considering they only met last summer, but… ya never know!

Zooey Deschanel is being sued for breaking a horse

zooey deschanel

Here’s something you probably didn’t know but that won’t surprise you: Zooey Deschanel is a passionate equestrian. She loves riding horses and has apparently been competing in horse-related events for years. That’s great, right? Here’s what’s not great: apparently a horse she “leased” to ride was overworked and “broken” when returned to its owner, and now the owner wants Zooey to pay up.

From TMZ:

The “New Girl” actress is a hardcore equestrian — competing in events all the time — and allegedly “leased” a show horse to ride for $13k back in 2013.

In the suit, the woman who owns the horse, Patty Parker, claims Deschanel signed a horse contract … promising not to overwork the stallion (named Literati) with restrictions that included “no more than 3 jumping lessons per week.”

But Patty says … when Deschanel returned the horse … it was a shell of its former self — “injured and unusable.” Sad.

In her suit, Patty says Literati needed serious medical attention — and claims it’s on Zooey to foot the massive veterinary bills.

Huh. Zooey hasn’t responded to TMZ’s call for comments, and this whole lawsuit might be bullshit. I can’t see Zooey “Manic Pixie Dreamgirl” Deschanel abusing a horse, but if the horse was overworked or overtrained or whatever, that’s really awful, the poor thing. At least Patty only seems to be seeking fees for the horse’s medical fees and not some massive payout, which leads me to believe this may be somewhat credible…

Zooey Deschanel Is A “Fiery Feminist”


Zooey Deschanel made some comments recently for InStyle magazine that made me applaud. Well, I didn’t literally applaud my computer screen, but I sort of nodded and agreed internally. Like you do. She says that not every woman is “dying” to give birth and it brings out the “fiery feminist” in her. I say, you go Zooey. You go. Via Huffington Post:

Like every woman is dying to give birth! I don’t think so. Nobody asks guys that. And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, ‘Pregnant and Alone!’ Stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me.

She’s right — NOT every woman is “dying to give birth” — I’m one of them, and I’m glad someone is voicing this.

I just wish InStyle didn’t photoshop the everloving Zooey out of her. This is what she looks like. I don’t know who is supposed to be on that cover (below). She’s so beautiful, I don’t know why anyone would attack her with photoshop the way that magazine did.


BUT ANYWAY, what do you think of her comments?

Zooey Deschanel shared a #nomakeupselfie

zooey deschanel

I kinda don’t get why the whole #nomakeupselfie thing ever took off, for anyone. Not everyone wears makeup, and it’s not necessarily something to be applauded that you haven’t piled your face with cosmetics before you do your duck lips for the camera. It’s called being a normal human being… but whatever, I guess.

Zooey Deschanel must’ve been feeling brave on Saturday morning, as she posted the above #nomakeupselfie and #nofilter pic on her Instagram page (and cross-posted to Twitter) to show everyone what she looks like without all her slap on. She looks… how you’d expect a human being who just woke up to look like.  But good for her, I guess! You go, girl?
