"Deschanel 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, a private preparatory school in Santa Monica, California, where she befriended future co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Kate Hudson." [posted on the Gyllenhaals and the Hudsons in the past (Zooey lookalike Katy Perry's surname used to be Hudson btw)]
She has a music career (with M. Ward), above she sings "Dream a Little Dream" (and those eyes, wow). And another MK themed song below with "Hello Dolly" [these are mostly for entertainment, she's done other MK themed songs like Nina Simone's "I Put A Spell On You" too]
This image of Zooey with her kitten I posted comparing her with ultra-Kitten Katy Perry a while back, it's insane how much they look alike (due to various potential reasons which you can speculate on; tbh there are some pretty clear differences anyway). I'd also put Emily Blunt in that category as she looks a little similar, who like Zooey guest-starred on The Simpsons. I'll just include a few comparison images (wearing same sunglasses also) and a recent Katy Perry image, in kitten Daisy Lowe's trademark leopard leotard. Every time Katy does anything these days she's wearing some kind of kitten suggestive clothing, it's a little ridiculous and I can't keep up; images stockpiled for future posts though.
Zo and Em... [Oz and M(+lily and Emily/Miley anagram)]
... who also has pretty creepy eyes (click for full size).
Two Kittens, Zooey + Emily in leopard-print [heh @ Animal Planet].
Welcome to Stage 23.
Remember the kitten photo and such, her movie roles are certainly not coincidental and seem to be obviously related to her kitten programming; in Flakes she plays, 'Miss Pussy Katz' and she has played a disproportionate amount of Kate's Katie's Kit's Kat's etc (just look at the list! with lots of other things worth noting, she played ALMA [if you've played FEAR you may get this significance] in the aforementioned Happening, another Dorothy in Jesse James, an Allison [Alice] in Yes Man etc).
These large crayon ones are from a photo shoot called 'Perfectly Purple', below she's in a purple tutu.
The above two (cain + magician's rabbit out of a tophat trick) are by Ellen Von Unwerth also; check out this random (not Zooey) vid made by Ellen for more (pink, man size) rabbits.
Started work on a Disney + Alice in Wonderland (the above image of Zooey comes from an event called "Disney's Alice In Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party" in 2005) post which may take me a few days to finish btw (then I'm doing a Natasha Richardson post), probably do some quick posts to fill the gap in the mean time though.
