Zooey Deschanel Doesn't Buy Into the 'Skinny-is-Better' Mentality

Zooey Deschanel shows off her amazing blue eyes on the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s June 2015 issue, on newsstands May 12.

Here’s what the 35-year-old pregnant actress had to share with the mag:

On worrying about her post-baby body: “Haven’t we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person. I’ve always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny. I like a healthy look. I don’t buy into that skinny-is-better mentality. I just eat healthy and work out and don’t worry about my weight too much. Actresses aren’t models, and most of them never wanted to be.”

On women in TV: “It’s a good time for women on TV. We can be funny in our own way…and funny doesn’t mean just one thing. Funny isn’t just one-liners. It’s big personalities and individualism.”

On wanting to be asked more than “what are you wearing?”: “I’m all for people asking actresses more intelligent questions. Just because you’re wearing a nice dress doesn’t mean you don’t have any ideas. It’s a shame to reduce smart, talented women to clothes models. But you can be a feminist and femmy. I don’t see how those things contradict each other.”

'New Girl' Renewed for Season 5 By Fox!

Zooey Deschanel‘s Fox comedy The New Girl just got a fifth season renewal from the network!

In fact, the cast has already begun shooting the fifth season due to Zooey‘s pregnancy. They decided to shoot a bunch of episodes while Zooey is still able to work before the baby comes. Then the cast will get a bit of a hiatus, E! News reports.

“I have been having a lot of fun in the writers’ room this year putting some of the relationship drama aside and just focusing on making the stories as funny as possible,” creator Liz Meriwether told the publication. “Surprisingly, telling stories about smaller events in the characters’ lives has actually deepened the relationships on the show. It turns out the best way to tell a story about a relationship is to not tell a story about a relationship. I’m going to get that quote tattooed to my lower back later.”

There’s an all new New Girl on tonight!
