Zooey Deschanel: Don’t Call Me Katy Perry!

By: Celebuzz / April 3, 2009

Zooey Deschanel has an identity crisis.

Apparently, the musician/actress is constantly being mistaken for “I Kissed a Girl” singer Katy Perry, and she tells MTV.com that she’s had quite enough of it.

“It’s a little bit annoying, to be totally blunt. The only similarity that we have is that we look a little bit alike,” Deschanel grouses. “I used to get, ‘I heard you were out at such-and-such club drinking whiskey!’ [when] I was at home watching TV. I think we lead very different lives.”

Personally, we don’t see the resemblance at all, but our friends at Buzznet have thoughtfully compiled a massive photo gallery of the two to help shed more light on the subject.

Readers, have your say in the comments section: Were Katy Perry and Zoey Deschanel separated at birth, or is Zooey making too much of a passing resemblance?
