Zooey Deschanel is continually getting mistaken for Katy Perry and she has had it! “It’s a little bit annoying, to be totally blunt. The only similarity that we have is that we look a little bit alike. I have met her before. She seems like a nice person. I’m happy that she’s famous enough now that she’s not going out and being mistaken for me.”
Although that quote sounds rather harsh, maybe she was joking. Rhetorical question. She wasn’t joking. “I used to get, ‘I heard you were out at such-and-such club drinking whiskey!’ [when] I was at home watching TV. I think we lead very different lives. At some point I feel like this will stop being a thing. I like the way my life goes. It’s sort of strange to be associated with someone that’s doing such different stuff than me. It’s weird.”
She also doesn’t like whoever is pretending to be her fiance Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard on Twitter. “There was a fake Twitterer of Ben. It was so silly because it was like all stuff like, ‘I can’t sleep!’ I was like, ‘Really? You can’t think of anything better to do than to pretend to be someone else on Twitter and say you can’t sleep? Come on, guy!’ Ben doesn’t do social networking things. Someone e-mailed him and asked him, ‘Is this you?’ It’s one thing if they’re harmless saying, ‘I can’t sleep,’ but it’s another if they’re like, ‘Hey, ladies! Who’s around?’ ”
Deschanel’s upcoming film Gigantic, with Paul Dano, and her sophomore She and Him album will both be released soon.
