thegoshdarnbatgirl-deactivated2 asked: Zooey Deschanel is manic pixie dream girl in real life.

Yes. Oh God yes. For those wondering what manic pixie dream girl means:

The Manic Pixie Dream Girl exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures. The Manic Pixie Dream Girl is an all-or-nothing-proposition. Audiences either want to marry her instantly (despite The Manic Pixie Dream Girl being, you know, a fictional character) or they want to commit grievous bodily harm against them and their immediate family.

- Nathan Rabin, "The Bataan Death March of Whimsy Case File #1: Elizabethtown
