Why we all have a crush on Zooey

22 Nov

Zooey Deschanel is a champion for my generation. Ok, maybe not a champion, but guys want to date her and women want to be her. Myself included. But why?

When guys talk about Megan Fox I don’t get it. I mean, yeah, she’s pretty, but trashy. I get Zooey.

She was in Elf and 500 Days of Summer. She looks like Katy Perry. She is the creator of one of my favorite websites Hello Giggles. She is half of a band called She and Him. She is also in one of my new favorites: The New Girl. Most of her characters are pretty similar, so we feel like we know her (we probably don’t). We at least know and love her character, so that’s what I’ll write about.

She’s very pretty, but not super exotic looking. You really love her for her personality and quirky charm. Zooey comes across as nerdy. She wears ugly glasses a lot to fool you into thinking she’s not pretty. She also dresses a little oddly, so you know she doesn’t think she’s pretty. She’s just one of us!

It’s like one of those movies (see She’s All That, The Princess Diaries, Mean Girls, etc.) where there’s a really hot girl who knows how pretty and popular she is. The above average-looking guy is in to her, as is the rest of the school. After the plot works itself out, the pretty girl takes advantage of the normal looking girl (usually in glasses and less-than-cute clothes). Eventually the above average-looking guy sees the normal girl for her inner beauty, great personality and spunky charm. They get together, but only after she gets a makeover and contact lenses.

Yes, this sends a bad message to girls that they can only get above average guys AFTER a makeover. But doesn’t it also give women hope that some guy, sometime will see them for their spunky personality. Yes, yes it does. Zooey does too. Because she has it all and is relatively normal, I can too!

I guess the real problem is she’s not normal. Her parents are semi-famous and she’s actually quite stunning. She still chooses to play normal girls, so I still love her. And she has a nice, raspy voice.

    I appreciate that you love “The New Girl” as well. I think she is a character based on my life 🙂 -Kate
