God! As if any of us needed any more reasons to envy Zooey Deschanel.

Salamandyr said...

Poor girl, couldn't she have found a rocker who looks good in leather pants?

Methadras said...

It's love? He must have a really large bank account or a huge crank.

traditionalguy said...

Is she now called Zoo Gibbard? That name needs a little work.

I guess the professor always did have a little crush on Ben Gibbard.

Who can help but admire the man who wrote and performs “I Will Follow You into the Dark?”

Bissage said...

The bunnies are what brings it all together, of course.

OMG Ann. Really? Zoey Deschanel is the latest installment of the sexiest girl next door type in hollywood. That is a pretigious post formerly held by the likes of Goldie Hawn, Meg Ryan and Sandra Bullock. Ben Gibbard is a mal adujusted dork with the one of the most overrated bands in the last 30 years that also happens to have the gayest name ever given to a pop band. Talk about marrying down.

I saw Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days Of Summer and she was too taken with herself. It's one thing for a beautiful woman to know she's beautiful. That's practically a given. But for a beautiful girl to broadcast her awareness of the effect of her beauty on all the lesser beings around her is repellent.

zooey is a gross name.

maybe zooooey can help ben find his lips.

RicPic,

I haven't seen that one. That is sad to hear. Zoey was lovely in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. She is not really beautiful. She is very cute and wildly sexy. But, I wouldn't consider her beautiful in the way a Natalie Portman or Selma Hayak is.

Her husband looks like a reject character from the old David Letterman show. What a dork

He's seriously over-chicked.

That was acting. I don't think it was Zooey who had problems, but the movie.

What a dork

So Althouse is now going to become a haven of dork discriminators?

What next? Nerd bigotry?

I have such a girl-crush on Zooey Deschanel. She's adorable.

The fact that he is a dork might be forgivable if his band didn't suck.

miller said...

Zooey is a beautiful captivating lady. Why bother with the other half?

She's cute & sassy.

I speak as someone who has been called a nerd, dork, geek, and a few other aspersions that I can't repeat here. That guy is abusing the privilege of dork-i-tude. I've never appreciated the emo trend of wallowing in bad clothes, bad hair, and bad hygeine. Rock is supposed to be an angry snarl, not a whiny imprecation.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

I'll be generous and give the marriage six months to a year.

Holly said...

I adore Zooey Deschanel. She's adorable and quirky and talented and, yes, sexy. I'm secure enough in my sexuality to admit that.

Tibore said...

And with that, you have neatly summed up my complaint about the path rock has taken for the past decade-plus. I point to this unfortunately fictional parody from the Onion on what I wish would indeed happen to the genre.

Word Verification: diallik... I really don't know if I should go where this is leading...

Second word verification on an edit: dedriene. What Adriene named her derriere. :D

Zooey Deschanel is one of those stars who has never made a first rate movie. I remember her, but I can't remember any of her movies. I'm not sure, but I think this is a demonstration of her star quality....Her spousal choice will give any number of dorky men unrealistic expectations.

Oh come on man, she was in ELF. That was an awesome movie.

She made a great, subtle, heartbreaking, quiet independent movie called All The Real Girls. Directed by David Gordon Greene, who might be the most underappreciated director out there (he's doing that show Eastbound & Down now, the star of that was in ATRG as well -- plus Paul Schneider from "Parks & Rec")...

Anyway, since pretty much no one on this thread has said a single nice thing, let me say that I think they are a lovely couple, both very talented, and I wish them well. :)

I'm not even sure who either of these people are but it does further my theory that even the ugliest rocker can get a hot chick. A 3 carat diamond also helps.

Need examples - Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova, Kid Rock and whomever, etc.
