Zooey Deschanel Reveals Her Hidden Talent (PHOTOS)

Zooey Deschanel has a lot of hobbies aside from acting and performing in She & Him, but one hobby in particular proves that the hips don’t lie!

“I can hula-hoop for hours,” the 500 Days of Summer actress told (and showed) SELF Magazine. In addition to showing off her hoop skills, Zooey offered up some tips for being your best self!

She advises: 

“Most people spend too much time comparing themselves to others. Get to know yourself a little bit better. Stop and ask yourself a few questions, and think about you.”

As for health and exercise, the vegan, glutton-free actress suggests: “A lot of people work out to be skinny. That’s so boring, and it seems like a depressing goal for a modern woman. I work out to be healthy and because I like it. I do sports or classes, things that engage my mind. If you’re active, fitness will follow; and probably a good figure, too.”
