Zooey Deschanel is known for her unique fashion sense and quirky persona. The star has appeared in movies like (500) Days of Summer, Yes Man, Almost Famous and Our Idiot Brother. Now, she’s catching attention for her hit TV series, New Girl. Zooey was on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night and filled him in on her new nephew, the lie her sister told her when she was little that terrified her!
Most people who watch the TV series Bones know that Zooey’s sister Emily Deschanel was incredibly pregnant! Just six months ago, they welcomed baby Henry into the family and Zooey can’t get enough of him! Working on the same lot as Emily, Zooey is able to get her fair share of baby time in during breaks by stopping by her sister’s trailer. This sounds like a great sisterly relationship, but apparently Emily terrorized Zooey when she was little.
“She pretended she was from Neptune,” Zooey explained. “…She basically just used the plot from Invasion of the Body Snatchers to terrify me, and a very over the top performance I might add.”
Poor Zooey grew up thinking that the Neptunians had killed her real sister and replaced her with a facsimile. Talk about a living nightmare for a 3-year-old! Check out the full interview with Jimmy Kimmel for all the details and catch Zooey on New Girl every Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Fox.
