There is a fine between asking Zooey Deschanel how she feels about being adorable and asking her opinion of “adorkable,” a word accompanying her image on posters and billboards nationwide.
Or at least I hope there is.
I sat down last week with Deschanel, star of the new FOX comedy “New Girl,” to discuss the development of her free-spirited and zany character, what drew her to the small screen and the sensation of hearing that your face is stories high in Times Square.
Oh and if you’re curious, the “Elf” and “(500) Days of Summer” star doesn’t mind the word “adorkable,” though you’re going to have to watch the interview to find out why not.
“New Girl” premieres on FOX on Tuesday (September 20) at 9 p.m.
Check out my interview (and read Sepinwall’s interview, which is longer, but features less Zooey imagery).
