New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel is one of those multi talented stars, who seem to be able to pick up anything and be great at it. As well as being a very talented actress, Zooey Deschanel is also a talented singer, songwriter and musician. Zooey is one half of the act She & Him, along with M Ward, and she has spoken about their songwriting inspirations.
Deschanel told The AP, "That is not what I do. I think that lovelorn is a more interesting emotion; I tend to be interested in that emotion more than I tend to be interested in the emotion of happy content love, so my big influences have always been a lot of different things."
She added, "I find things that are interesting, moving, maybe people I know or their emotions or movies or other songs, even just a thought or a feeling. Not that there is anything wrong with confessional songwriting, there are plenty of people that do that I admire. I think it is great, it just isn't how I do things."
It is never easy finding a balance between an acting career and a music career, as both are very demanding, but Zooey Deschanel certainly seems to be doing a good job. She & Him released their latest album Volume 3 earlier this year, which gave us the hit track Never Wanted Your Love.
