About Zooey Deschanel (1980 – )
Zooey Deschanel is the child of actress Mary Jo Deschanel, star of Twin Peaks, and Caleb Deschanel, cinematographer (The Passion of the Christ) and was born and raised in L.A. She is the sister of television producer and actress Emily Deschanel (Bones, 2007-2011). She has been married to "Death Cab for Cutie" lead singer Ben Gibbard since 2009.

Her breakout film was Almost Famous (2000) in which she played the troubled older sister of the main character. She became known as a "type" - the deadpan, sardonic best friend of the lead character, in spite of the fact that she says she just "stayed home all the time" in high school. Deschanel was also in Elf (2003), Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005) and Failure to Launch (2006).

She played lead of Allison, an eccentric musician and the love interest, in the box office success, Yes Man (2008). Zooey Deschanel also starred in critical and financial success, 500 Days of Summer (2009), an examination of a failed relationship, as the girl things didn't work out with.

Zooey Deschanel is also a singer/songwriter and plays piano, ukulele and banjo. With M. Ward, she made the debut album Volume One in 2008, followed by Volume Two in 2010.
