Zooey Deschanel: ‘I’m a Great Flatmate’

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

ZOOEY Deschanel says she’s a great flatmate.

The actress-and-singer believes she is a good person to live with as she’s always in a happy mood and doesn’t cause much mess.

“I think I’m a fun flatmate,” she said. “I’m always cheerful. I go on tour with my band so it’s 12 people on one bus and I feel like I’m the one who’s happy in the morning. I’m not a chaotic person, but I might slack off on doing the dishes from time to time.”

However, if anyone was to share a house with Zooey, she would rarely be there as she’s too busy producing and starring in upcoming TV show New Girl.

“This show is my life. And most of my free time is preparing for the show and working on next week’s script, thinking about what we’re doing in the future, making sure that everything feels right, memorizing lines and working on my character. I haven’t been to the grocery store in months,” she said.

“But it’s been wonderful. I love getting to help shape the show and be a part of the decisions that are made on set.”
