How close is New Girl's Zooey Deschanel to her sister Emily Deschanel, star of another FOX show, Bones? Pretty close!

“I worship her,” said Zooey while appearing on a comedy panel today at the Television Critics Association winter meeting in Pasadena. She clarified: “But not in a weird way.” According to Zooey, Emily is ”so nurturing, so nice and motherly" and offers “great practical advice.”

One questioner wanted to know what the Deschanel girls ate for breakfast as children. “Fox cereal,” said Zooey, “Seriously, little foxes.”

Adorable much?
