Underneath this 33-year-old’s cute exterior is a sharp business brain and a plan to make women more empowered than ever. What’s not to like about Zooey Deschanel?
Zooey in Cosmo, the mag with the sex tips and go-big-or-go-home mission statement? Oh, yes. Don’t let her retro-girlie fashion sense or cupcake-centric blog posts fool you – Zooey is a badass.
Her New Girl co-star Jake Johnson (who plays her housemate Nick Miller) explains it this way: “Zooey doesn’t f*ck around,” he tells us by phone. “She’s a great businessperson. For some reason, it’s never talked about. They talk about how she’s quirky and sweet, and that is true. But she has a music business, she’s been nominated for awards, she has a profitable website, and she’s the lead in a show she partially owns. I watch and I learn a lot from her.”
