She's the beautiful brunette who can rock a blunt bang like nobody else in Hollywood. If that didn't immediately give it away, she also plays Jess in hit TV series New Girl and, in 2003, she starred opposite Will Ferrell in everyone's favorite Christmas movie, Elf. Yep, you guessed it! Of course, we are talking about the gorgeous Zooey Deschanel.

Born 36 years ago today, Deschanel first emerged on the acting scene in 1999 when she made her film debut in Mumford. From there, the actress's career took off and she was soon known for her comedic ability onscreen. Soon, she was cast in a string of movies, such as The Good Girl (2002), The New Guy (2002), The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005), Failure to Launch (2006), Yes Man (2008), and (500) Days of Summer (2009).

In addition to her acting ability, Deschanel is known for her musical talents. Not only is she an accomplished singer, having performed in the jazz cabaret act If All the Stars Were Pretty Babies with fellow actress Samantha Shelton, but she also plays the keyboard, percussion, banjo, and ukulele. In 2008, Deschanel put out her first album, Volume One, with bandmate, M. Ward. Together, the musical duo calls themselves She & Him and have put out five studio albums, including a Christmas album in 2011.
