A wide eyed Zooey Deschanel graces the cover of Allure magazine's February issue
When she wasn't pursing her cherry red lips for the camera, the New Girl chatted with the mag about style and being considered an 'it' girl.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On her hairstyle:
"I'm bangs and eyes. It's who I am. There have been periods when I've grown my bangs out, but I always cut them back, so it's like, why go through the trouble?"
On being labeled "overly girlish":
"If you feel like dressing like a girl, there's nothing wrong with that. I don't know why femininity should be associated with weakness. Women should be free to express who they are without thinking, I need to act like a man, or I need to tone it down to be successful. That's a very good way to keep women down."
On her weight:
"Some people around me, they're like 89 pounds. I'm not going to say I'm a big girl. I'm a very small person, but I'm a healthy weight. That might be a little weird for Hollywood."
On her 'It Girl' status:
"'It' girl is supposed to be something that only lasts a certain amount of time. They keep calling me an 'It' girl, and at this point it makes me laugh, because they've done that so many times: 'You're it'; 'you're not it.' What is 'it'?"
This is probably the most interesting cover Allure's done in a while. We likey!
