Most celebrities will tell you that they have been asked some interesting questions in the past and some that are just weird. Many of these stars will remember the time, the place and the interviewer of the strangest question that they have ever been asked.
Now, Zooey Deschanel will be able to add her name to that list, after being asked a question that can only be described as weird. Earlier this week, at TCA, Zooey was asked by one reporter to explain her name, which the New Girl actress found very confusing.
She replied, “My name? My first name or my last name?” and the reporter confirmed that they wanted her to explain both. Still confused, Zooey asked, “My name on the show?” to which the reporter responded, “Zooey. Zooey Deschanel.”
Finally Zooey realised that this reporter actually wanted her to explain her own name and cleared up the mystery behind the name Zooey Deschanel, saying, “I was named after Franny and Zooey. My last name is French.” So there you have, Zooey Deschanel will never get asked a more confusing question than that ever again in her life.
