Queen of the DayHappy Birthday, Zooey!HelloGiggles Team

We would like to wish our co-founder, style hero, musical crackerjack and comedic inspiration, Miss Zooey Deschanel, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! The birthday girl has dazzled us in many ways, one of which being her candor. Zooey isn’t afraid to share her thoughts and opinions, and we adore her for that.

On this very special day, we’d like to share some of the best quotes from our fearless leader.

“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?” -February Issue of Glamour Magazine

“I had a party at the American Girl store — recently.” -Us Weekly

“People do think I’m weird. I don’t know why.” -May 2012 issue of Marie Claire

“I don’t know why femininity should be associated with weakness. Women should be free to express who they are without thinking, I need to act like a man, or I need to tone it down to be successful. That’s a very good way to keep women down.” -February 2012 Issue of Allure

“Somebody asked me, “How did you start doing comedy?” and I was like, “By being unintentionally funny.” I think making a movie or a record, the best things happen by accident—and those end up being the magic. Every time I’ve followed my gut it’s been better than when I’ve tried to do what I was supposed to do.” -February Issue of Glamour Magazine

“I hate papaya. I love coffee. I mean, I really love coffee.” -Us Weekly

We love you, Zooey!

    This is my favorite! I’m a little late but happy birthday! I often argue with many woman of the beauty of being a woman. While there are many things woman can do that a man can do, but why would you want to equivalent yourself to a man? You are dismissing your essence as a woman and comparing yourself to a man. Essentially you are saying you are a man and not embracing the feminine qualities which are oh so beautiful…. I could write this much more clearer or elaborate but I have to get to school!

    Hope your bday was swell and have great day everyone!
