Her film roles often fall into the category of the “MPDG” (manic pixie dreamgirl), a cinematic trope defined by the Onion AV Club as “that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.”

oh hey a listicle http://www.avclub.com/articles/wild-things-16-films-featuring-manic-pixie-dream-g,2407/

that listicle was some real OTM stuff (ie, Bringing Up Baby) and a bunch of other movies they kind of wrote around when they couldn't find enough to fill a list (ie, Annie Hall)

around "almost famous" + "all the real girls" era i found zooey deschanel really charming and an enjoyable actress, but after the third person told me that she's their 'celebrity crush' i've started to find her much more annoying. it seems kinda unfair, because it's not her fault, but an actress wonderful in small doses can quickly become really tedious on centerstage. she's cute, i guess, but i don't find her particularly compelling.

It's her eyes.

I don't know anything about her, haven't really seen any of her movies I don't think (except for Elf?), haven't heard her sing. I just thing she's purdy is all.

also, she has a doppleganger who once kissed a girl + liked it.

i think there's something inherently annoying about her beauty, but she is undoubtedly beautiful.

janice (surm), Monday, 5 July 2010 15:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

… haven't heard her sing.

Oh, except in Elf, I guess. That film was really a gamechanger for me

lil' (Z S), Monday, 5 July 2010 15:35 (4 years ago) Permalink

I decided to be more pragmatic and have an interest in her sister, instead. I mean, she's no pixie but she has some acting chops, a major network tv series, and can sing.

Love her sister!

Mordy, Monday, 5 July 2010 15:55 (4 years ago) Permalink

her best role to date was in The Good Girl. I forgot she was even in Almost Famous. She needs to make a horror film or something.

Wouldn't Hot Tub Time Machine qualify as a horror show?

I kno, it's a heartbreaker to find out teh indie chick u love looks exactly like the popular girl u hate

Mordy, Monday, 5 July 2010 17:57 (4 years ago) Permalink

actually, she doesn't, even tho there is a strong resemblance. perry's face is all sorts of fucked with regard to proportion, it's like her eyes are 2 close together or her features are scrunched or something. not cute, and her style is even stupider

janice (surm), Monday, 5 July 2010 18:01 (4 years ago) Permalink

i dunno if zooey gets to be indie in a meaningful way after starring in 'the happening'

she is prettier than katy perry tho

j/k lol simmons (history mayne), Monday, 5 July 2010 18:03 (4 years ago) Permalink

some serious narcissism of small differences to say that Perry is substantively different in either looks or style from zooey

not really. zooey's fey and trendy shtick strikes me as quite different from perry's over-effort in the vein of bold fashion, and the proportion of perry's features is much more out of whack than zooey's.

and i don't even like zooey deschanel, just sayin!

how had I not noticed that our Zooey looks scarily similar to Sean Young in Blade Runner, when Sean Young in Blade Runner was my #1 girl when I was about 15 and Zooey is there or thereabouts now?

I prefer Selma Blair's face over Zooey's

I think it comes down to fox eyes vs. doe eyes

Selma Blair is incredible looking. Zooey is alright.

Selma Blair looks like a young Kris Kardashian in that pic, ha.

ey take it to the Selma Blair thread you lot. Oh that's right, there isn't one becuz she's no Zooey.

That's the worst photo of her I've ever seen.

SRSLY, she looks like Margot Kidder or something there.

craziness! I will agree that the pic at the top of the thread is somewhat unrepresentative, but still totes flattering. plus I kind of like that it looks different from normal zooey; every time this thread gets bumped, I come in here all fired up to talk shit abt her quirkycutes, and instead I'm just like WOAH

I must admit, the crush was so on after first seeing her as the counter girl in the Good Girl. Great role.

I wouldn't drop acid w/ her tho b/c her eyes would probably go all 'Precious Moments' & that would be hard to deal with.

It took me so far into that promo to realize that they're really selling a sitcom about a girl who is so awkward and ridiculous that she repulses men and is coached by a group of male friends. It's worked with the gender roles the other way around for years, but I have no idea why they think this is a good idea.

mh, Thursday, 19 May 2011 16:44 (3 years ago) Permalink

a premise too terrible for a horrible romantic comedy flick, so they made a whole show out of it?

Dunno what you expect really. As cute as she is, she's a terrible actress
