My nursery school did a production of 'The Three Little Pigs.' I played the third pig.

'It Girl' is supposed to be something that only lasts a certain amount of time. They keep calling me an 'It Girl,' and at this point it makes me laugh, because I've done that so many times: 'You're it;' 'You're not it.' What is 'it?' more...

You go to something like the Golden Globes, and it's the most glamorous place you could ever be, but then you go home and you're still like, 'Urgh, this dress is too tight, I wanna take off these shoes and put on my pyjamas.'

I'm not going to say I'm a big girl. I'm a very small person, but I'm a healthy weight. That might be a little weird for Hollywood. more...

I listened to a lot of Joni Mitchell in high school. She was sort of an inspiration to me. I think she's a great lyricist, and she makes interesting choices. more...

I've had experiences where I wasn't allowed to change words around at all because you have to say everything, exactly as written on the page. That's not fun for me. For me, part of being an actor is being able to contribute to a character's rhythms. If there's room to explore, you find a happy medium. more...

I've never pursued a role. I always hear stories about actors going after parts and I'm, like, 'How do they do that?' It seems so weird. It seems like a total myth or something. more...

I like acting with no lines because all of a sudden you're able to express things without always worrying about the text. It's great to have a great text, but there's a lot of stuff you can't say in words, and I think there's something really nice about good physical moments. more...

I sort of consider myself a comedic actress, not a comedienne. I think it's different. You know, I'm not a stand-up or anything, but playing into comedic situations is sort of where, I think, my strength lies. more...

I think the best comedic actors don't play it for comedy, they play it for reality. Then you find it funny because it's real. Playing the genre is the worst thing you can do - it's embarrassing. more...

It's very much a piece of myself when I write a song. I don't mean to say it's very personal, like the lyrics mean something personal to me. When I write a song, that's my taste in music - my taste in chord progressions and melodies. more...

There are a lot of actors who will sit here and talk to you about characters - 'He does this, and she's a really interesting character because she does this.' I'm not like that at all. I'm not an actory actor. more...

I have trouble actually describing myself because I'm always suspicious of people who start describing themselves. I'm like, "OK, why are you trying to tell me what you are? more...

For those of you who thought you'd be forgotten, The friends you've made will try their best, to make it so. Think of all the beauty that you left behind you. You can take it if you want it, and then let it go. more...

I want to be a freaking feminist and wear a freaking Peter Pan collar. So freaking what? more...

And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, 'Pregnant and Alone!' Stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me, more...

Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh'ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don't let someone steal your tenderness. Don't allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. more...

I need a coffee to go with my coffee. more...

I brake for birds. I rock a lot of polka dots. I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours. I spend my entire day talking to children.

I wish it had ribbons on it or something just to make it slightly cuter but that doesn't mean I'm not smart and tough and strong. more...

I'm just being myself. There is not an ounce of me that believes any of that crap that they say. We can't be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f-king feminist and wear a f-king Peter Pan collar. So f-king what? more...

That is so personal, and it's my pet peeve when people press you on it. And it's always women who get asked! Is anybody saying that to George Clooney? more...

I'm not doing it to pander to people. I just always knew what I liked versus what I don't like. I never liked things with too many zippers or spikes and stuff. That weirds me out. I like things that are pretty. And I think it's great to be pretty. I like being feminine. I think it's good to be feminine. We don't need to look like men or dress like men or talk like men to be powerful. We can be powerful in our own way, our own feminine way. more...

I think every year I become happier because I become more comfident and more comfortable in my own skin. more...

I like a lot of old films, I like a lot old music, and a lot of it has to do with the fact that I like the idea of knowing what happens before, so that I can understand it. more...

I feel like I can't fully understand what's happening now until I really understand what's happened before. But you do get sort of bogged down a little bit when you're trying to study so many years' worth of music. It can be a little bit overwhelming. more...

My sister and I do to what we love to do and do what we want to do, so that sort of started us off having a sense of 'Do this because you love it' not 'Do this because you want to be famous.' IGN Logo more...

You can't know if someone's really your best friend. I think the measure of that is you could not see each other for six months and then when you see each other you laugh the same way you did when you were a little kid. more...

There's nothing like having a great friends when you see them, you get that joy - that you can't really compare it with anything else. more...

That people equate being girlie with being nonthreatening ... I mean, I can't think of a more blatant example of playing into exactly the thing that we're trying to fight against. I can't be girlie? I think the fact that people are associating being girlie with weakness, that needs to be examined. I don't think that it undermines my power at all. more...

Most of my music theory knowledge is based on piano. But I write on guitar a lot, too. I'm not a great guitar player by any means. I'm not a great instrumentalist. I play piano on stage. I don't play guitar on stage, but I use it to write quite a lot. more...

I think comedy's just about being interested in comedy and what makes people laugh and experimenting. more...

One of the privileges of doing television is the ability to evaluate my own performance and try to improve upon it. I know what's working and what's not working. more...

It's really fun to say no sometimes. I just don't want to discount how fun it is to say no and exercise your right to say no, and - as a girl - it's important to know how to say no... and that no means no! more...

I think that it's our responsibility to create a world in which girls can grow up and not have to limit their dreams or possibilities. more...

Proving people wrong is probably my favorite thing to do. more...

Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it's a song, a stranger, a mountain, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep -feel it all. Look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love. more...

I don't like plain nails. I get sad. more...

Everyone has the heartbreak that shapes them in a way that they could never go back to the innocence that they had before. more...

Love is individual to each person and I don't think you can define it before experiencing it because it isn't going to be the same for everybody. more...

I think good actors tend to be really funny. more...

I'm a big fan of the '80s fantasy genre that I grew up watching, movies like "Krull" and "Clash of the Titans" and "Time Bandits" and all that stuff. more...

I think that if you're serving yourself before you're serving a story then that's where you end up being not funny. It's not about being funny, it's about telling a story and then the comedy comes out of the situation, I think. more...

I'm not cynical about love at all. I'm very practical. I think love takes up a lot of time. more...

I love downtown L.A.and I relish any opportunity to spend time there. more...

Love is individual to each person and I do' think you can define it before experiencing it because it is' going to be the same for everybody. more...

I'm not playing a comedy. I want to be playing the truth of the moment, and then have the comedy come out. more...

I've always had a really great time being in movies and writing music when I get home. The more creative I am, the more it feeds into other creative aspects of my life. more...

I have a music career as well, so I was going to either be an actress or a musician. Then, I did both. But, I was always going to do something creative. more...

I don't think I'm very much like anyone else, really. I'm sure there are aspects of other actors that I share, but I don't see anybody else and go, Damn, they stole my thing. I'm me, and I like that there are people who have an appreciation for that. more...

I have trouble actually describing myself because I'm always suspicious of people who start describing themselves. I'm like, OK, why are you trying to tell me what you are? more...

O-o-old habits die hard when you got, when you got a sentimental heart Piece of the puzzle, you're my missing part Oh what can you do with a sentimental heart? more...

Why don't you sit right down and stay awhile? We like the same things and I like your style Its not a secret; why do you keep it? I'm just sitting on the shelf more...

I got to get your presence Let's make it known I think you're just so pleasant I would like you for my own more...

For those of you who tried, but didn't make it, Settle down - it's never what you think. The summit doesn't differ from the deep, dark valley, And the valley doesn't differ from the kitchen sink. more...

For those of you who thought you'd be forgotten, The friends you've made will try their best, to make it so. Think of all the beauty that you left behind you. You can take it if you want it, and then let it go. more...

For those of us who try to keep remembering, Try to do our better than our best. Think of all the children in the drifts of snow. Winners never quit, but winters never rest. more...

I was never no, never no, never enough, But I can try, I can try to toughen up. more...

Change is hard, I should know. I should know. more...

I somehow see what's beautiful In things that are ephemeral I'm my only friend of mine And love is just a piece of time in the world in the world. And I couldn't help but fall in love again. more...

Take it back Oh, take it back I don't want your lovin', anymore Let me live Oh, let me live It's not you who I sing for more...

I don't wanna' wonder whether you love me I don't wanna' wonder whether you care more...

When I saw you smile I saw a dream come true more...

I won't be waitin' any more cause I know Baby, baby I was made for you more...

My eyes are so bleary I guess I'm young but I feel so weary I've tried to express it But I think its all a bore Its at the heart of me, A very part of me more...

It's nowhere in here And its everywhere else that I don't wanna be, But I'm stuck here getting misty over you I'm alone on a bicycle for two. more...

Saw your face, My hand you took Just like in a story book, And you got me Yeah, you've got me more...

I can feel your heartbeat, Where I lay my head 'Cause you've got me Yeah you've got me more...

When I was a little bit younger The strain I was under could make me cry. Now I'm a little bit older, A little bit bolder, Never so shy more...

Sweet darlin', come hold me, Just a little bit longer now more...

There's thieves among us Painting the walls All kinds of lies, and lies I never told it all more...

What's in my pocket? You never knew You didn't know me well So well, as I knew you more...

And I know, and you know too That a love, like ours Is terrible news But that wont stop me crying No, that wont stop me crying over you more...

It's hard to be ignored When I look at you, you look so bored My baby, my darling, I've been taking a beating... Well alright (well alright) It's okay (it's okay) We all get the slip sometimes every day I'll just keep it to myself in the sun In the sun more...

Orpheus melted the heart of Persephone, but I never had yours I followed you back to the end of the path, but I never found the door more...

I like to learn things slow I like learning alot I like to get it all again and in the end You know you get what you got more...

California is a great big nation of one They never knew what they wanted 'til it was already gone more...

Why don't we just sit and stare and do nothing? Nothing at all for a while I like the way you smile I could be your state and I could be your nation It doesn't get better than home, now does it? more...

I want to be where your heart is home I want to see you with the light in the morning There's never been such a beautiful warning to me, to me more...

I had some brand new shoes They were all red but they gave me the blues And they're runnin' away, they left me a letter It's just like you told me it'd be It's nothin' nothin' nothin' nothin' at all more...

Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it's a song, a stranger, a mountain, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep -feel it all. Look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love. more...

It's strange because a lot of people are like, 'You can't change human nature-people are inherently negative.' I don't think that's true. If you expect the best from people, they'll step up. more...

And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, "Pregnant and Alone!" Stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me, more...

I'm just being myself. There is not an ounce of me that believes any of that crap that they say. We ca' be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f-king feminist and wear a f-king Peter Pan collar. So f-king what? more...

That is so personal, and it's my pet peeve when people press you on it. And it's always women who get asked! Is anybody saying that to George Clooney? more...

My mom told me when I get compliments to cover my ears. more...

I work almost completely year-round, since I was 18 or 19. It's nine months a year, and then you're out of town, (there are) crazy hours and all of the things that go with filmmaking, which is a pretty all-consuming business, although I'm very blessed to be a part of it. more...

I was writing tons of music in my spare time. I might be on location somewhere, and I'd go home and I'd have my guitar and my little keyboard or something and write music. Or if I was at home, on my piano. I've always been a late bloomer with a lot of things, just in general, so I think this was something that needed to come to fruition in this particular way. more...

I've been writing music since I was about eight. I would write sporadically. I wrote a lot of music in high school. I guess the oldest song on the record ("I Thought I Saw Your Face") is about eight years old. It's the old "I had my whole life to write my first album and six months to write the second one." I did, to some degree, but actually, a lot of the songs that ended up on the record, I wrote really recently. So it varies. more...

Yeah, well, we were looking for something sort of anonymous. It suggests what it is, but I like that it's modest. I feel like that's an underrated virtue. It's modest and it's kind of anonymous, which I liked, because it reminds me of my own ideas about why music should be played, which is not to be a star. That was never my intention. more...

I would say I know nothing about the music business, in a nice sort of way. I totally forgot I was in that music video. That's so funny. more...

I love to play music, and this is fun, and let's record this stuff in a way that we both like. That was exciting enough, so we just recorded it. There was no business in it until the very last minute, really. It was really as much of an extension of me writing the songs in my bedroom as it could possibly be. more...

It's great, because we've had some really great people playing with us who really have studied the record and been able to recreate a lot of what was done. But I would need a choir of eight, probably, to do all of the backup vocals. more...

In a sense, I like to think of the live performance as something different than the record, not necessarily looking to exactly recreate the record. Sometimes Matt and I just do duets folk-style. Part of the fun of seeing a live show is having it be different from the way that you hear it in your bedroom or wherever you listen to music. more...

I mean, the idea that it might help somebody out or help somebody make the decision to become a stewardess or otherwise... No, that's one of the nice things about making music or making movies, is that art does have the power to affect people. I feel really privileged to be a part of that. more...

Blossoming and unfolding are basically the same thing, but blossoming is more romantiC. more...

I finally figured out how to read origami directions. more...

After staring at origami directions long enough, you sort of become one with them and start understanding them from the inside. more...

There are a million examples of not feeling the jazz, but using the jazz. more...

I've been watching a lot of Joni Mitchell YouTube clips and I can't believe her transformation from this folk singer in Canada. more...

I'll have these internal moments where I'm empathizing with someone else or feeling something myself, but I'm like, "How can I see the best in this situation?" Sometimes those are the moments where you can have the most clarity. more...

I'll write and make chords with my voice sometimes if I don't have an instrument even though it takes a million times longer. more...

I don't like to plan harmonies too much, because there's something fun that happens when you just sing a pass, then sing another pass, and layer them on top of each other. more...

I always have loved music, ever since I was really little. I just loved to sing. I can't really explain it, except maybe - and this is going to sound really stupid - when I would listen to a song it would make me more excited than anything else could. more...

When I got a little bit older I wanted to play piano - that's all I wanted to do. I remember learning how to play a blues progression on the xylophone in music class and thinking "This is the greatest thing I've ever learned." more...

Writing music is really personal, and it's a really exciting thing to participate in because represents the full creative process: It feels like something is coming from nothing. more...

In making a record there are so fewer people involved - at least in our case. There were no more than three or four people in the studio at once. So I really feel like I can stand by everything on the record and say this is something that I personally endorse. more...

In making a movie, you're part of a big machine. Even in a small movie there are still so many people involved in the process, and it costs so much money to make. more...

I love movies and I love to watch movies and being a part of the whole film experience. Being a filmgoer is a unique experience, and it can affect you on so many levels. But being an actor in movies you often have a very narrow palette for expressing yourself. more...

I feel like making music because - and this has much to do with the way I was able to make this record - there's more of myself in it. more...

I'm always interested in hearing how other people read and react to my songs. I hadn't thought of it in just that way. more...

One of the things I love about doing things that are creative is that I feel like it's my right as an artist not to be affected by the reactions of those people that are going to hear my songs. more...

I also feel like it's the right of the people hearing them to have their own interpretations of what these songs mean. Sometimes people will see things that I don't see. more...

I love telling stories. I think of myself as a storyteller, and I don't feel bound by being just a singer or an actress. First, I'm a storyteller, and history is stories - the most compelling stories. There is a lot you can find out about yourself through knowing about history. I have always been attracted to things that are old. I have just always found such things interesting and compelling. more...

I'm not really that interested in pandering to an audience of people that are going to judge me before they hear me. If they hear it and don't like it, that's totally fine. more...

There are lots of things that everyone else likes that I hate. So I feel that audience rights are very important. I just want people to hear it and decide if they like it or don't like it as they would with anything else. more...

I already have the weird experience of having a name for myself personally that's connected to someone that's in the public eye. So you have me, Zooey Deschanel, and then there's Zooey Deschanel's public persona. more...

I try to be authentic - but at the same time I don't really want people prying into my personal life. more...

It can make you a little crazy when you are too connected to a product. more...

I actually did a lot of improvised movies or movies that were partially improvised. more...

I don't thrive in a word-perfect environment. more...

Oh, me? I'm not 80% water. I'm 80% coffee, and a little bit of sass. more...
