Welcome to the List…


So I’ve been thinking about this for awhile and it’s time I made an official proclamation. Today I am adding Zooey Deschanel to my list of celebrity crushes. I am hoping that all of you will pass this along to Ms. Deschanel the next time you see her.

I didn’t realize how much I liked Zooey until a few days ago when I finally realized who she was. As it turns out, I’ve been unwittingly admiring her for years. She’s in like a bajillion different movies and every time I’ve seen her, I’ve thought to myself “wow, she’s really cute…and often…quite hilarious as well.” If you’re wondering, yes…my thoughts—much like my writing—contain multiple ellipses.

The best part is, not only is she quite foxy and a funny gal, but she’s also in a bunch of movies that I outright love and some that I’m ashamed to love. For example she was in “The Good Girl,” “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” “Elf,” and “The New Guy.” She’s also starring opposite one of my longtime faves, Jim Carrey, in what looks to be a hit-or-miss comedy “Yes Man.”

I also wanted to make sure I gave Zooey a little public recognition because she is all too often overshadowed by her sister, Emily, who plays the title character on FOX’s “Bones.” This is not to say that Emily isn’t also a talented actress, but come on…she’s a one-trick pony. She is ‘Bones’ much the same way that Matt LeBlanc will forever be ‘Joey’ and Kelsey Grammar will always be ‘Fraiser.’ Zooey, on the other hand, is a chameleon, albeit a relatively unknown chameleon.

So it is with great pride that I officially add Zooey Deschanel to my list of celebrity crushes. You’re in good company Zooey. Keep making good movies and don’t pull a Britney and go all bat-shit crazy and you’ll be around for a long time!



  1. I had NO idea that Zooey was related to Bones. I really can’t see it. I have a girl crush on Zooey Deschanel, so I completely approve. Though I’m not sure about her recent foray into music recording. I think she should stick to acting.

    Oh, and you should watch Weeds (if you haven’t already). She shows up in the 3rd (?) season as a crazy ex-girlfriend.


  2. Sure Zooey is cute, but she’s no Juno!
