Zooey Deschanel: 'I'm Not Mature at All'

Actress/singer Zooey Deschanel stopped by The Grove to chat with "Extra's" Mario Lopez about her new hit FOX show, "New Girl, dancing like a chicken, and being an aunt.


Deschanel described her character, Jess, as being a little bit like her. "I think she's the 13-year-old me," she laughed. "I'm not mature at all. I'm more like 15."

Zooey was excited about Tuesday's episode. "Nick, one of the characters, his girlfriend just dumped him six months ago. We are going to a wedding and I have to pretend to be his girlfriend to make his ex jealous."

The quirky star did say there might be some dancing, such as the Chicken Dance. "Maybe! I don't want to give it away... I'm a passable dancer, but I love to dance."

On her sister, "Bones" actress Emily Deschanel's new son, Zooey gushed, "He's so cute. He's 2 weeks old, doesn't do much yet. He touches his face a lot. Hey, he didn't know he had a face! I'd touch my face a lot if I just found out I had a face two weeks ago!"

The singer also said her folk duo She & Him -- which she described as "Arena Folk" ("Folk music you can listen to in an arena") -- will release a Christmas album in October. "I know it's early, but it's to get people ready for the holidays."

Tune-in to "New Girl," Tuesdays on FOX!
