Zooey Deschanel is a three-time Golden Globe nominee and a mother of a one year old. She has been in the film industry since a teenager. The 36 year old actress has learned, that fame and being in the public eye also comes with a downside. It went so far, that she took a break from social media all together. The busy actress is now in the sixth season of New Girl, and can also be heard in the animated film Trolls, next to Justin Timberlake. For this role she even had to learn how to rap.
The beautiful brunette covers the November issue of Cosmopolitan. In the interview she opens up about maternity leave from her TV Show “New Girl”, on taking a break from social media and on humanity.
Here are some highlights of the interview.
On having to record a rap verse for a remix of Diana Ross’s: “I’m Coming Out” for her new animated film, Trolls: “They were like, are you ready to rap? I was like, uhhh… Justin Timberlake was producing it. He was there, and obviously, I have great admiration for the man. I didn’t want to screw it up, but the one thing I can’t do is that. It was really scary, but Justin was a great coach.”
On her maternity leave from New Girl: “We live in a country that doesn’t give paid maternity leave. I felt very lucky to have an employer who was understanding and let me have, like, four months with my baby before I had to go back to work.”
On taking a break from social media: “A lot of very strange, tragic, sad, unfathomable things have happened… to the point where you’re like, no amount of thoughts and prayers can make this better. It makes me more reflective. I took a social-media break because everyone feels the need to comment on everything immediately. Sometimes, we need to be thoughtful about what we say.”
On humanity: “When I was growing up, I always thought the world would get less bigoted, less racist, and people would be more open-minded. For a while, I thought that was happening, but it’s been very scary the last few years. I really, truly believe that people are basically good in nature, and in the end, that prevails.”
