Zooey Deschanel is in Self magazine, doing her requisite "I'm so adorable" thing with ironic or equally adorable objects. Believing that Zooey is indeed adorable is not a problem. It just occurs to me that her ability to use adorable as a foundation for a career is going to become more difficult as time goes on. It's working out okay for her now, but after almost a decade of unending cuteness, I think the clock is ticking on that. I mean, how cute is she going to be playing with Hula-Hoops and insects when she's 50? Not so much. If I were Zooey's agent, I'd be urging her to start angling for some meatier parts real quick, and skip the TV shows about insane and annoying people.
