If you didn't already love Zooey Deschanel, her interview in the August 2014 issue of InStyle just might help you get with the program. Turns out the actress isn't merely "adorkable" — she's also outspoken, especially when it comes to the subject of motherhood.

"Like every woman is dying to give birth," the New Girl star told the magazine. "I don’t think so. Nobody asks guys that. And, you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, ‘Pregnant and Alone!’ Stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me."
Preach, woman! When she's not calling out gender stereotypes, the 34-year-old brunette is juggling a TV show, films, rocking out with She & Him, and overseeing HelloGiggles. And, yet, she still comes across as refreshingly grounded.
“I’ve seen a lot of people turn — sometimes it unlocks who they really are," Deschanel said of fame. "They turn into celebrities who are separate from themselves. That’s OK, but I just don’t want to be like that. I have to be normal. My mother wouldn’t let me be any other way.”
For more Deschanel goodness, pick up the August issue, on newsstands from July 11. (InStyle)
