Zooey Deschanel: Older Sis Emily Used to Terrify Me!

Zooey Deschanel: Older Sis Emily Used to Terrify Me!

Zooey Deschanel makes an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday (March 26) in Hollywood.

The 32-year-old New Girl star shared more about a funny story her older sis, Emily, told when she was previously on the show.

“She basically just used the plot of Invasion of the Body Snatchers to terrify me [when we were kids] and a very over-the-top performance might I add. The Neptunians had killed my real sister and replaced her with a facsimile who looked just like her, talked just like her,” Zooey explained.

“But when my parents weren’t in the room, [she] made crazy faces at me, talked like Vickie from Small Wonder,” she added. “This was terrifying! I was terrified. She would make me cry … and then she would laugh.”

    She is absolutely adorable. She can sing, act, has a hilarious sense of humor (have you seen The New Girl?!) Talent, like those listed, is what makes someone attractive. So I would say hot. ;)

    aw, I love zooey. at first glance it’s easy to dismiss her as kind of a silly, girly thing but if you actually watch an interview, or watch her acting, she’s just a hilarious, sincere, and talented person.
