She is undoubtedly a very well-known face on television, but you have to admit that she is so much more. The actress has presented us with her outstanding performances, and now it’s time for us to have a look at her. So today it’s all about the height, weight and body measurements of Zooey Deschanel, but before we start, here are some interesting facts about the actress herself.
She was born Zooey Claire Deschanel on 17 January 1980 in Los Angeles, California.
Show business could just as well be a family business for the Deschanel’s because her father is cameraman and director Caleb Deschanel, her mother is actress Mary Jo Deschanel (née Weir and her older sister, Emily Deschanel is also an actress.
When she was in high school, she had to sew her clothes because she had very little pocket money and was not allowed to go to the mall until she was 17.
The star’s talents are not limited to acting, she is also a good singer and songwriter.
Zooey doesn’t look a day older than 20, but in reality, the star is 37 years old, talk about the strange case of Zooey Deschanel.
She attended Crossroads Preparatory School in Santa Monica, California, the same high school as another famous actress, Kate Hudson, and actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
As far as dreams and desires go, we all had crazy dreams when we were kids, in Zooey’s case she wanted to grow up and become a princess.
In case you wonder about the logic behind her name, she was named after the male character in J.D. Salinger’s “Franny and Zooey”.
Unlike her ‘New Girl’ character, who doesn’t mind the occasional drug abuse, Zoe doesn’t drink, smoke or take drugs… at all. She’s just such a good actress.
In reality, she has a very short attention span and is easily distracted by things around her, she actually has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), so she can’t maintain eye contact, she is also a bit impulsive.
Well, let’s end with that remark: She beat Amanda Bynes for the part of Jess in New Girl.
Zooey Deschanel’s Height
It’s quite obvious that Zooey is no Shaq when it comes to her size, but do we want her to be like that? What makes the star so cute is her physique, and even with her height of 1.5 m 15 cm, she is still an inch taller than the average height of American women of 1.5 m 15 cm. The truth is that she looks very petite on and maybe even outside the canvas.
So it is understandable that one doubts that she is slightly above the average, but still, the naysayers will say no. You also already know that we are only standing by the heights listed here. Let’s take a look at some other well-known personalities in this sense, who are as high as the star.
Jennifer Lopez, Megan Fox, Jessica Alba, Meryl Streep, and Penelope Cruz all share the heights of Zooey Deschanel.
Zooey Deschanel’s Weight
For someone who has had two babies (yes, she is a new mommy), you have to admit that she knows how to keep her weight under control. She weighed 55 kilograms before the baby, so we’ll just settle for that today because we can’t possibly know her weight immediately after the baby.
Nevertheless, Zooey is not one of those women who is obsessed with her height, she just tries her best to be healthy. She does this by following a diet of vegetables, grains, and proteins. She looks like a “real” woman because she doesn’t go overboard to fulfill the usual Hollywood stereotypes we see out there every time we turn on our TVs.
Despite the “norm” in her immediate environment, she has managed to keep it real and keep a good body in the good old way.
