Is Zooey Deschanel Scared Of Being Skinny?

Zooey Deschanel is exactly the type of girl to have in a circle of close friends. The 33-year-old New Girl actress is talented, funny, down to earth and has a realistic and healthy approach to maintaining her (pretty much perfect) figure.

In the February issue of Glamour magazine, Zooey opened up about Hollywood and the scary skinny lengths girls will go to to “make it” in the spotlight. She admitted it’s a little frightening!

“There are a lot of actresses who are unhealthy-skinny—much, much too skinny,” she said. “You can’t Pilates to that. I’m a very small person, and if I lost 15 pounds, I’d look like them; it’s scary.”

Zooey also shared a message she hopes all young girls aspiring to be in the spotlight will listen to. 

“The range of what’s acceptable is larger than what people believe. Women I admired growing up—Debra WingerDiane KeatonMeryl Streep —were all beautiful and thin, but not too thin.”  she said. “You do not need to look or be anorexic to be successful in Hollywood.”

Couldn’t. Agree. More.
