Zooey Deschanel for Marie Claire US September 2013

On her childhood: "A lot of people I knew who didn't struggle, who maybe came from a lot of money or were really pretty - those people actually have a harder time as adults in a way. They didn't even understand what it's like to not be pretty... I'm not saying it's good, I don't think people should be mean to each other, [but] I think it made me stronger."

On her marriage and divorce lesson: "I will say this: Whether you're married or not, if you're in a relationship, if you have to wake up every day and say, 'I want to stay with this person.' You have to take the commitment every day and every second and every minute."
On having children:
"I'm not going to answer that question. I'm not mad at you for asking that question, but I've said it before: I don't think people ask men those questions."

On crowds: “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.”

On her speech patterns: “I became aware that people were criticizing the way I speak, which seems weird to me. I speak the way I speak, and I am an intelligent person. Sometimes I lean into California-speak more for entertainment value. It’s not that I can’t live in a world without the word like.”

On her website, HelloGiggles.com: “I just felt it’s important to teach young girls to be strong people, to not think, I can’t do this because I’m worried about what people will say. There are worse consequences, but online negativity stops people from being creative, part of which is having bad ideas as well as good ideas. When somebody says, ‘That idea’s stupid,’ you stop your flow of ideas. We can’t have the next generation be so afraid because they have been attacked.”
