Zooey Deschanel Accidentally Entered a Beauty Pageant When She Was 14

So uncool.

New Girl star Zooey Deschanel (Jess) entered a beauty pageant when she was 14, mistaking it for a talent competition. She spilled to the March issue of Company magazine (via the Belfast Telegraph), "It was basically all the trappings of a beauty pageant, without the swimsuit round! You had to do a big musical opening number and answer the sort of questions they ask in beauty pageants, about charity. I was horrified when I realized what it was. [...] But I'm not a quitter, so I stuck it out, and my mom and sister laughed at me the entire time. I didn't win. A girl who played the viola did."
