Some celebrities are like chameleons in that they always look different, but others are known for having a certain look, and when they change it, people are shocked. Whether it’s a famous brunette suddenly going blonde, a freshly shaved head, or something as simple as a new haircut, these changes can be too much for fans to handle at times.
Zooey Deschanel is best known for her leading role in the TV show “New Girl.” We’ve all taken some bad photos in our lives.
Of course, you probably also know her from movies like 500 Days of Summer, Yes Man, or Elf. Even though her work is well-known, it’s not nearly as well-known as her signature style, which consisted of a lot of sundresses, floral patterns, and, most importantly, her chic, blunt bangs that defined an era.
When Zooey gets rid of her bangs, fans are always shocked
Sometimes you’re caught off guard, or you blink in the middle of a shot, or you’re just having a bad hair day.
“Without your bangs, you are completely unrecognizable,” one Instagram commenter wrote, while another asked, “Who is this girl? Why is her picture on your Instagram feed? I don’t believe that is you…”
I can’t say I blame them—having her hair parted in the middle is almost a foolproof disguise!
Zooey has now talked about how people think she is a totally different person without her bangs
When Buzzfeed asked Zooey if the reaction was something she expected, she said, “None at all! Well, and a lot of the time I just have my hair out of my face, so that’s what’s funny.”
But usually, taking an unflattering photo doesn’t make us look like a brand new person, which is what fans seem to think happened to Zooey Deschanel in a new photo she posted to her Instagram.
Zooey Deschanel is a familiar face
The actress, who is best known for playing the cute Jess on New Girl and the dream girl in 500 Days of Summer, has pretty consistently worn a heavy bang and dark hair throughout her career.
When she changes her look, she’s almost unrecognizable.
In fact, because Zooey Deschanel looks so different from the blonde, bangless Jovie who falls in love with Buddy in Elf, you may not have even noticed that she was played by Zooey Deschanel.
Even if a person has dark hair, not having bangs can make fans confused.
Who is that girl, indeed?
It makes sense because we’re so used to seeing her with blunt bangs that anything else feels very strange. It also seems like Zooey might just have one of those faces that sometimes looks really different.
In a new Instagram post, even keeping her usual look has some fans confused.
Zooey posted this photo of her and her boyfriend, Property Brother Jonathan Scott, with the caption “We Voted!” But many fans were not thinking about politics at the time.
“Um… you look like a totally different person in this picture,” a fan said.
“That doesn’t look like Zooey,” another fan wrote.
“I know everyone is saying it, but… who IS that? Is she a paid actress trying to be Zooey Deschanel?” A fan asked on Twitter. Many fans also talked about the theme song Zooey sang on New Girl and asked, “Who’s that girl?” I’m really trying to figure out if this is just what Zooey looks like without a tonne of eye makeup,” one fan said.
“Did we get a new zooey?” one fan asked
“I’m so confused, this doesn’t look like Zooey Deschanel at all,” said another fan, while another said she looked like a “white Rashida Jones.”
Fans also noticed that Zooey looked different in a photo her boyfriend posted.
“She looks kind of different here, Jonathan,” one fan said. Another said, “Why did they edit her so harshly? She looks like a totally different person now!” Maybe these fans are right and both pictures are a result of too much editing.
Fans noticed in a recent Halloween photo that Zooey looked more like herself
“What a relief that Zooey is back! “Don’t know who that other girl was,” one fan joked, while another wrote, in reference to their Harry Potter costumes, “Maybe she was drinking Polyjuice potion.”
Are people overreacting, or does that picture really show a whole new person? Could that be makeup or Photoshop?
