We just really liked the name Elsie and then we both love otters — they’re very sweet and they’re also smart. They use tools … they hold hands while they sleep, there’s so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.

Deschanel appears on the cover of June 2015 issue of Cosmopolitan. She talks about achieving success and not posing for a ‘body after baby’ tabloid photo shoot.

Haven’t we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person. I’ve always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny. I like a healthy look. I don’t buy into that skinny-is-better mentality.

Magazine Cover

Deschanel appears on the cover of the March 2014 issue of Lucky magazine. She talks about fashion and her personal style.

I like what I like, It has nothing to do with trends or being a slave to fashion. Sometimes things will be in style and they’re classic and look great, and sometimes … I think it’s important to recognize when fashion has gone to a place that isn’t cute.

Zooey Deschanel interview

Interview

Elle Magazine interviews Deschanel about what music provides her that acting does not.

When I sit at the piano and come up with melodies and arrangements that I like, it’s a very joyful thing for me. It also gives me something different, because writing music is very solitary, but with a TV show there’s, like, 150 people on the crew.

Magazine Cover

Deschanel appears on the cover of the November 2013 issue of Marie Claire UK magazine. She talks about online negativity.

Even I get slammed and overwhelmed by how negative the internet can get, and I’m an adult. I don’t pay any mind to it, but it’s pretty shocking how when you give people anonymity – it’s like the worst of human nature.

Deschanel appears on the cover of the September 2013 issue of Marie Claire magazine. She talks about crowds, speech patterns, and her website.

I get very overwhelmed by crowds, especially of strangers. [My idea of heaven is] being on a farm, with horses, farm animals, and dogs. Select people, some food, and maybe some music. That sounds really great.

Absolutely! I truly believe in it. I’m not saying it’s not ephemeral…I’m saying true love may be out of the box. My parents have been married for 40 years and my grandparents were hitched for 70 years. I come from a long line of true loves. I’d be likely to go for somebody who is like me. I do like creative people, so whatever that means. Yeah, authentic and creative.

Magazine Cover

Deschanel appears on the cover of the April 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan UK magazine. She talks about wanting to be a role model and about her website.

I was so tired of every site having these comment sections that were pure, pure toxic energy. I put myself out there; it’s part of my job, and I get it: people will attack me. At first I was thrown off, but now I have a pretty thick skin about it. But if someone were to do that to one of our 13-year-old bloggers, I would kill them!

People are more affected by how I look and dress myself than I think anyone would care to admit. I guess I’ll just have to start wearing power suits.

I did go through this period where girls would be mean and I had a lot of guy friends, but I’ve found as an adult the importance of having female and male friends.

Deschanel, Gibbard divorce

Divorce

Deschanel finalizes divorce from Ben Gibbard after roughly three years of marriage. The divorce papers were filed by the actress in December 2011 in a Los Angeles court, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the cause of the dissolution. On relationships:

[True love] that lasts forever… yes, I do believe in it. My parents have been married for 40 years and my grandparents were married for 70 years. I come from a long line of true loves. I’d be more likely to go for somebody who is like me. Well, I like creative people, so whatever that means… Yeah, authentic and creative.

On people’s speculations on the divorce:

Well, with all due respect, I’ve never read it. I don’t see any of the websites that covered it. I don’t read pop-culture sites, I don’t read gossip magazines, I don’t read this shit. And that’s exactly how you deal with it. You just don’t read them.
