Zooey Claire Deschanel, (Los Angeles — January 17, 1980)
Named for the male character in J.D. Salinger’s “Franny and Zooey”. Graduated from Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences in Santa Monica. Plays the piano and the baritone ukulele. Allergic to gluten, dairy, and eggs. She pronounces her name “ZOH-ee” (not “Zoo-ee”). Played the role of Anita, in Almost Famous. My favorite movie? 500 days of Summer. And yes, she looks like Katy Perry (take a look here!)
I love old music, old movies, screwball comedies, vintage clothes.
Basically I’m an old-fashioned gal.
