Oh those cruel TV critics! Fox’s The New Girl star Zooey Deschanel barely survived her encounter with the hard-nosed media at their press tour in Beverly Hills, where she was asked: “When did you first realize you were adorable?”
Deschanel blushes and covers her ears.
“My mom told me when I get compliments to cover my ears,” she says.
Dammit! She pulled that adorable thing again.
“Thank you for saying that,” she said. “I don’t know if I’m adorable. No, really. I’m flustered. I don’t think of myself that way but I will take the compliment.”
Another critic asked about the similarities between her character in 500 Days of Summer and her Fox sitcom character. “They look alike,” she quipped… adorably.
