Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel is often referred to as "adorkable" because she's cute and dorky at the same time. But every now and then she'll bust out her sexy side like she did at the Fox upfront presentation in New York City yesterday.

The "New Girl" star wore a white blouse that revealed some cleavage along with a short black skirt, tights and black pumps.

Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel was mortified after accidentally entering a beauty pageant when she was a teenager.

The "New Girl" star thought she had signed up for a talent showcase but was "horrified" after misunderstanding the nature of the competition.

She tells Britain's Company magazine, "At 14 I accidentally entered a beauty pageant. It was basically all the trappings of a beauty pageant, without the swimsuit round! You had to do a big musical opening number and answer the sort of questions they ask in beauty pageants, about charity. I was horrified when I realized what it was. I thought I was en...

Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel has withdrawn her lawsuit against a shoe company.

The star launched a legal battle against executives at Steve Madden back in December, 2010 alleging bosses at the firm had used her name and likeness in a number of adverts but had failed to pay her her $2 million fee for the endorsement deal.

However, Deschanel has since decided to drop the case and last week filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A reason for the lawsuit's withdrawal has not been revealed.

Zooey Deschanel: 'Girls Spit In My Face'

Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel ran home from school in a fit of tears every day because her mean-spirited classmates spat on her. The "New Girl" star, who now counts a slew of celebrity pals among her roster of friends, was cruelly bullied in high school.

She tells Allure magazine, "Girls spit in my face. People were so mean to me. I'd cry every day."

Deschanel wasn't deterred and she went on to study at Northwestern University in Illinois - however her experience wasn't much better.

She continues, "I went to Northwestern because I had gone to a really non-traditional high school. I was like, 'It'd be ...

2012 Golden Globes Fashion: Who Rocked The Red Carpet & Who Didn't?

2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

Not In The Holiday Spirit Yet? Give 'Elf' With Will Ferrell A Watch

December 21st, 2011 1:20pm EST
elf 1
Whether it’s Will Ferrell’s loveable smile, the yellow tights, or the fact that you can laugh and be a kid again while watching the film- we can all agree that Elf is the greatest holiday movie since National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation or A Christmas Story. For those of you who live under a rock and have not seen Elf, it is a classic holiday movie starring Will Ferrell, who plays Buddy the elf and directed by Jon Favreau. When Buddy was a baby in an orphanage, he snuck into Santa’s sack and ended up in the North Pole with the rest of the elves. As he grew up, much taller and more manly th...

Interview: 'Our Idiot Brother' Director Jesse Peretz On Paul Rudd, Emotional Truths And What He Loves Doing Most

December 5th, 2011 11:30am EST
Our Idiot Brother
When one thinks of actor Paul Rudd these days, comedy definitely comes to mind. But in the new Rudd outing "Our Idiot Brother" (out now on DVD/Blu-ray from The Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay Entertainment), thanks to Director Jesse Peretz there is also a definite dramatic sweetness that adds a unique touch to the surprisingly endearing film. The movie tells the story of joyful idealist Ned (played by Rudd) who ends up newly involved in the lives of his three very different but equally uptight sisters, played by Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emil Mortimer. Add to that a supportin...

Fall TV: The So-So, The Bad And The Ugly

October 28th, 2011 11:00am EDT
The X Factor
Thanksgiving is a few short weeks away, and before you slice into those turkeys, let’s take a look back at the new TV shows that are thriving and those that don’t have a Thanksgiving prayer. We’ll break it down by category.

Modest Hits

(We would have had a full-on “Hits” category, but there are certainly no runaways so far.) FOX’s ‘New Girl’ can be deemed a first-season success. The Zooey Deschanel comedy was the first fall series to earn a full season pickup, and for good reason: Its ratings are better than lead-in ‘Glee’ and it’s frequently tops on Tuesdays in 18-49. To date it’s ave...

Spotlight On The Cute And Quirky Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel
If you haven’t heard of Zooey Deschanel, you are most likely living under a rock. She’s the cute and quirky girl from Elf, 500 Days of Summer and the one of the only new fall shows that seem to be thriving, New Girl. We love her for a few different reasons. She is married to Death Cab for Cutie front man, Ben Gibbard (I’m sure they make the sweetest music together), she is not afraid to be a big dork (see New Girl) and her character in Failure to Launch (the only good thing about that movie).

The thirty one year old was born in Los Angeles into an entertainment family, hence her and her si...

Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not because of everything from, lattes to cakes, is pumpkin-flavored and stores are stuffed with caramel apples. It’s because there is a fresh, shiny crop of new and returning shows to devour. Most shows are at least three episodes in, so it’s time to grade 10 new and returning shows to gauge their progress in this burgeoning season.

Actress Zooey Deschanel's dreams of playing rock legend Janis Joplin on the big screen have been dashed - the project has been shelved.

The Yes Man star, who is tasting TV success as the leading lady in hit new comedy New Girl, has revealed The Gospel According to Janis is no longer in development - and she's upset because she has spent years preparing for the Penelope Spheeris film.

Deschanel tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I've been working on her scratchy voice with a vocal coach for three years and now we've found out it just isn't going to happen. That's a lot of time to spend preppin...

Is 'New Girl' With Zooey Deschanel Worth Watching?

Zooey Deschanel is the New Girl
Zooey Deschanel is the “New Girl” Jess in FOX’s most anticipated new sitcom of the fall. The show officially premieres Tuesday (tonight) at 9/8c, but the pilot has been leaked all over the internet and I got a chance to check it out. I have to say there’s a lot of promise for this show, but there are also some things to worry about.

The story follows Jess as she enters a new chapter in her life after moving out of her ex-boyfriend’s place. She finds Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.) on Craig’s list and decides to move in with them.

Worst Dressed Stars At The 2011 Emmy Awards

We love great gowns, but we really live for the fashion fails on the red carpet. Check out the stars who really missed the mark at this year's Emmy Awards:

First up - Gwyneth Paltrow. Two pieces equal double trouble for Gwenny. Her hair and make-up look flawless and her body is amazing, but the black lace midriff-baring Gucci gown pushed the envelop (and not in a good way.)

Next - Julianna Margulies. The white Armani Prive with the space age bustier looks like something even Judy Jetson wouldn't want in her closet.

Then there's Zooey Deschanel who chose a gown in a an interesting shade -...

Zooey Deschanel Talks Her Show 'New Girl,' Becoming An Aunt & More

New Girl
Zooey Deschanel charmed the Television Critics Association this summer when she presented her new show, New Girl. The indie movie sweetheart was already a favorite from roles in (500) Days of Summer and Almost Famous, but seeing her be goofy in clips from the show and in person could not have been more endearing.

On New Girl, Deschanel plays Jess, a girl who moves into an apartment with three men after catching her boyfriend cheating. She copes with rejection and dating again by dancing, singing her own theme song and crying to the DVD of Dirty Dancing. New Girl premieres Sept. 20 on Fox.
