Zooey Deschanel on Body Image & Guilty Pleasures

It's nice to see that 32-year-old actress and musician, Zooey Deschanel, has a healthy philosophy on food and body image. 

Zooey covers Allure magazine and opens up about everything from her diet to body image:
While Deschanel watches her weight by sticking to a diet of vegetables, grains, and proteins, she isn't obsessed. "Some people around me, they're like 89 pounds," she says. "I'm not going to say I'm a big girl. I'm a very small person, but I'm a healthy weight. That might be a little weird for Hollywood."
Zooey talked more about her philosophy on food last year....and we have a guilty pleasure in common -- cookies:
"Actually, there’s a bakery called BabyCakes in New York, and one in L.A. now. They make amazing gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. I like to keep things like that in my freezer, just so I know it’s there, but I almost never touch it. It’s weird. The knowledge that it’s there is enough, it’s almost more satisfying to me. Once it’s gone, then you don’t have the option anymore. I like having the option."
Who could go for a gluten-free cookie right about now?!
