Zooey Deschanel looks fierce for fall on the cover of Marie Claire‘s September 2013 issue, on newsstands August 13.
Here is what the 33-year-old New Girl actress had to share with the mag:
On crowds: “I get very overwhelmed by crowds, especially of strangers. [My idea of heaven is] being on a farm, with horses, farm animals, and dogs. Select people, some food, and maybe some music. That sounds really great.”
On her speech patterns: “I became aware that people were criticizing the way I speak, which seems weird to me. I speak the way I speak, and I am an intelligent person. Sometimes I lean into California-speak more for entertainment value. It’s not that I can’t live in a world without the word like.”
On her website, HelloGiggles.com: “I just felt it’s important to teach young girls to be strong people, to not think, I can’t do this because I’m worried about what people will say. There are worse consequences, but online negativity stops people from being creative, part of which is having bad ideas as well as good ideas. When somebody says, ‘That idea’s stupid,’ you stop your flow of ideas. We can’t have the next generation be so afraid because they have been attacked.”
FYI: Zooey is wearing Saint Laurent in both photos.
