The adorable Zooey Deschanel lands the May cover of Marie Claire!

I love Zooey, always have. ‘500 Days of Summer’ is one of my favorite movies of all time. I can’t watch her TV show ‘New Girl’, because honestly, I just find it incredibly annoying. I will be honest, I only watched the first 3 episodes, and I do hear they got better after that. I just don’t find myself caring too much.

Anyhoo, the interview wasn’t all that great (at least what they posted online). Only a few quotes to pull. Here they are!

How the success of her Fox series “New Girl” has changed her life:

“It’s harder to do normal things,” she says. No longer can she run blithely into Ralph’s for a head of lettuce or some paper towels. “I think that if you haven’t been to the grocery store in a really long time, it’s really easy to get very out of touch,” she says.

On always playing the quirky, dorky characters she usually does:

“People do think I’m weird,” she says. “I don’t know why.”

When she was 12, she was “chubby” and recalls being picked on:

“I was ridiculed,” she says. The low point came when a mean girl spit in her face. “I really don’t know why she spit at me,” Deschanel says. “I just talked to her. I guess I wasn’t allowed to talk to her. I remember I couldn’t believe it.”

After being picked on as a child, she says she lost 30 pounds:

“All of a sudden,” she says, “everybody treated me differently.”

Zooey Deschanel’s Beauty Secrets.

Zooey Deschanel moved from indie-film It girl and folk musician to mainstream TV star this year with her hit show The New Girl—but that doesn’t mean she’s put down her ukulele or quit being so gosh-darn quirky. Deschanel showed off her gorgeously offbeat side on our February cover, and told Allure all about her surprisingly balanced beauty regimen.

Her oh-so-pure skin treatment. “I use an organic cleansing oil by Laventine, and John Masters Organics makes a nice pomegranate [facial] oil as well.”

Her less-is-more makeup strategy. “I don’t wear a ton of makeup, but Rimmel has a really good liquid eyeliner.”

Her shiny hair secret. “Oribe shampoo and conditioner.”

How she stays healthy inside—and out. “I tried to be vegetarian while dealing with a lot of food allergies, and it was impossible. So I do eat meat, vegetables, and rice… very balanced.”
