Zooey Deschanel: Don't Call Me Katy Perry!

Zooey Deschanel: Don't Call Me Katy Perry!-photo

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?

    I saw Zoey on TinMan and I thought she was Katy Perry, I swear it. They're twins. Without too much make up, Katy looks like Zoey and I'm still confused until today.

    Zooey is a boss. Katy is awesome to but they have way different personalities and I have never mistaken one for another. I think they look alike in the pic above but with all the crazy ish Katy keeps doing they look nothing alike. They just happen to have the same eye color and hair color and sometimes the same hair cut but if you look at their faces next to each other they don't look alike at all.

    Uhhhhhh they are not GUYS..retard, they are girls!

  • cat

    I thought Zooey was Katey in 500 days of summer and hitchhikers ... I hadnt heard of her before and they look identical, so I just assumed, until I was corrected by the credits!

  • kelsey

    Zooey is not insulting Katy Perry.. being constantly mistaken for and compared to someone else is always annoying, no matter who that person is.

  • all8768

    pffff!!!!!!!!!! zoey is more beautiful than katy....

  • Laura

    Umm Zooey is absolutely beautiful and classic and totally unique and Katy Perry is an ugly fakee btch who definitely tries to hard to be like Zooey. Check out pictures of the REAL "Katy Perry" by typing her actual name Katy Hudson on google.

  • Sarah

    I think they look similar but not JUST ALIKE. I know what it feels like to always be told you look like someone you're not, but she is being kinda harsh. At least she isn't getting told she looks like Marilyn Manson, or someone like that.

Zooey is a wonderful girl,she's beautiful and charming,doesn't she? she can sing ,can write songs,and also a actress. on the other hand,in my viewpoint,I think Zooey doesn't like Katy Perry at all!!! zooey is much more better than she in my mind! zooey~you are the best !!

  • annie

    We love you, Katy! :) I don't really know who that Zooey is. She should be thankful for being the lead actress in 500 days of Summer. Anyy, thumbs up still to both of them. BUT I LIKE KATY MORE AND MORE! Talented and VERY GORGEOUS! :)

    I knew about Zooey way before Katy. And I noticed the similarities particularly in their eyes. However, aside from the physical similarities and the fact that they dress up in a not-so-usual way, they're really actually very different. :) IMO

  • Elmer

    Geez, you really could not get any closer. They REALLY look alike, maybe one was cloned from the other....

  • abby

    they look a little alike, but Zooey is classic beauty and Katy is cute with make up

  • Vampress

    There are similarities but you can see differences. They look like they could be sisters but not twins.

  • ThisOneChick.

    Look at the eyes people. Katy has green eyes, Zooey has blue eyes and of course the face shape. I think these are the only ways to understand who's who... at least for me.

  • ZooeyRulz

    Zooey is just way better looking and way more cute. She also sings way better. Maybe they look a little alike, but it's just the hair.

  • its_the_hair

    Katy has an angular face with sharp features whereas Zooey's is soft and more rounded, If they both picked up 50 pounds Katy would just fall apart- but Zooey would only get better :)

  • do

    they really look a like.., i'm even confuse right now.

  • mandii

    I gotta say tht they wer separated at biirth..srry Zooey n lyke i wuz watchiinq tv n the cotton commercial got on n i totally thought tht Zooey wuz Katy buh den i saw the name at the bottom i think they both are equally talented...buh i lyke katy more my opinion

  • jen

    zooey is cute. katy perry looks like a tranny. it's a subtle difference--but it's there! plus--zooey is way more talented!

  • Alwin

    The first time I saw Katy Perry out of the corner of my eye on a TV, I thought she was Zooey. I've never thought the other way around because the first time I saw Zooey was in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (awesome). When I looked closely at the TV, I slapped myself upside the head because it was an insult to Zooey. So there!

  • Halle

    Sorry, Zooey... Katy is almost the exact spitting image of you. Even if you don't want it to be true. She's also getting a lot more publicity than you these days, haha... maybe you should just take what you can get and try not to complain. :P
