Zooey Deschanel: 'I’ve Always Felt Like An Outsider'
Here’s what the 32-year-old New Girl actress had to share with the mag:
On feeling like an outsider: “I’ve always felt like an outsider and I still do when I go to fancy events. I still sit there and think, ‘I don’t belong here.’ I feel like a kid at the adults’ table – like I’m an outsider who got let inside somehow. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just that I see everything differently. I take all the glitz and glamor of this business with a large grain of salt. I feel very removed from it. Not in a bad way – it’s cool – I just don’t feel a part of it.”
On being comfortable with who she is: “I’m not shy. I have a strange sort of combination of awkwardness and confidence. I’m actually OK with awkward moments. But it’s not because I think I’m so great. I’m confident in things other than, like, my ‘swagger’. I’m confident in my sense of humor. I’m comfortable in my skin.”
On her personal style: “I don’t really have any rules but I do believe in wearing stuff that flatters my shape. I have an old-fashioned body because I’m small, and I have a little waist but I have hips – I’m not like straight up and down. Things with shape look best on me; that’s why I love vintage dresses… I don’t like to limit myself. Anything that I would love to wear, I wear!”
