Zooey Deschanel : biography

17 March 1980 –

Since 2007 Zooey Deschanel became one of the most needed and popular Hollywood young American actresses. She played in films “The Good Life”, “The Assassination of Jesse James by Coward Robert Ford”, “Weeds”, “Bridge to Terabithia”. in the film “Bridge to Terabithia”, made by director Gabor Csupo, Zooey proved one more time, that she could play in fairy-tales, which are interesting not only for children, but for adults too. Incidentally, in that year another fantastic film was made – “Tin Man” by Nick Willing. Many cinema critics reproached this film for a very strong similarity with a famous fairy-tale about the Emerald City. Practically all characters were really adopted from “The Wizard of Oz”, but viewers liked this film.

2007 year was finished with another two films for Zooey – “Delirious” and “The Go-Getter”. The next year was also successful for the actress – she played in a thriller “The Happening” with Mark Wahlberg and created a serious and deep image. And then she at once changed the mask in a comedy “Yes Man”, made by Peyton Reed. In this film Zooey Deschanel played with such stars, as Jim Carrey and Terence Stamp.

And in 2009 Zooey played in a melodrama “500 Days of Summer” of Mark Webb. America cinema critics called this film one of the main discoveries in the cinema world. In the vortex of events Zooey Deschanel found time to announce about the wedding with Benjamin Gibbard, a soloist of the groups “Death Cab for Cutie” and “Thje Postal Service”. The wedding took place on the 19th of September in 2009.

Zooey Deschanel doesn agree to play in a film at once, before her positive answer she made a big work. She read scripts, getting accustomed to the image, and it should be noticed that, according to Zooey’s words, it concerns all film – no matter if it is a comedy or a thriller. Such a serious and captious attitude to her future roles cause a legend in Hollywood, that many directors would refuse to make a film, if Zooey didn’t agree to play.

In 2010 Zooey Deschanel took part in a big project – shooting of a film “Your Highness” (director David Green) – the next fantasy film about wonderful adventures in magic worlds, struggles with monsters, warlike princesses and very different princes.

It is curious, that when Zooey Deschanel plays in famous commercial films, she also finds time to work in so-called “independent” cinema, in which she started her career, and today she had a name “Indie-Queen”. Even during her studying she got musical experience. The actress composed music to some of her films, and a musician M. Ward helped her to release a disc “Volume One”. She was also a designer and a photo model. Zooey likes to astonish everybody, appearing on the high-society events in “mad” dresses. She can wear a dress of the style of 60-s and cowboy’s boots for a glamorous party. They say, her wardrobe is full of such dresses, and she has more than hundred pairs of many-coloured tights.

Zooey Deschanel thinks that her main task is not only cinema art, but, as far as possible, good mood of people, who surround her.
