Zooey in Marie Claire

zooey-deschanel-drawn-lashes-golden-globes-close-w724“..Whether you’re married or not, if you’re in a relationship, you have to wake up every day and say, ‘I want to stay with this person.’ You have to make the commitment every day and every second and every minute.”

mcx-september-2013-zooey-6-mdn“My theory is that people in this day and age want to dismiss things. So they want to be able to dismiss you,” Deschanel says. “They say, ‘You don’t belong, you don’t deserve this because here’s why, and let me find an intellectual argument for why you wearing pink or cuff sleeves or a bow makes you not worthy of your accomplishments. Everything you’ve done doesn’t matter because you wore the wrong thing or you speak in a way that’s feminine or you identify yourself as feminine.’ And I just think that’s bullshit. And smart people are doing it, and that’s surprising to me. I’ll give them being smart, but they’re being very shortsighted.”

“I just felt it’s important to teach young girls to be strong people, to not think, I can’t do this because I’m worried about what people will say. There are worse consequences, but online negativity stops people from being creative, part of which is having bad ideas as well as good ideas. When somebody says, ‘That idea’s stupid,’ you stop your flow of ideas. We can’t have the next generation be so afraid because they have been attacked.”

  1. I like the third quote the most. That’s important message, to do things without worrying what people will say. Especially must be difficult for a celebrity to take creative risks, because every move they make is analyzed, and a bad movie can change how people perceive them.

    1. Yes, I like her because of not pretending. I think it’s because she have a family who are used to showbiz and therefore still sticking to their roots even when they are famous.
