I just read this two-page illustrated rant about Zooey Deschanel. The only useful thing I got out of it was that I now know how to pronounce Deschanel. (That and having some more nonsense to blog about.)
I know that Charles is somewhat taken with Ms. Deschanel because he’s always posting pictures of her but I had no idea she was the current “It Girl”. Of course I don’t really keep up with those things. There’s always some Girl Next Door type, though, that everyone simply loves and she’s always fairly cute but at the same time has a common look that makes everyone think, “What a nice, ordinary girl, not like most of those snooty Hollywood types.” Face it, we all like attractive people. As Kristi Harrison says:
Because at the end of the day an obese one-eyed hunchback isn’t going to win your affection for sing-talking through her day, no matter how vintage her dresses are. She’s just another one-eyed hunchback in an old dress singing jazz standards and making you wish you didn’t have to ride public transportation.
Personally, I don’t have much opinion about Zooey Deschanel, just a vague feeling that I might find her annoying if I ever watched her show, and maybe that’s because I’m always wanting to slap the character he sister Emily plays in Bones. Zooey’s guest appearance on that show was the only time I’ve ever seen her act in anything. I can’t remember if she was annoying in that; I was too busy being annoyed by her sister.
By the way, if you look at Kristi Harrison’s profile page, you’ll see she has no reason to envy a pseudo-dorky-girl-next-door Hollywood starlet.
