Zooey Deschanel Explains What Happens When She Films on the Same Lot as Her Sister Emily

Zooey Deschanel and her sister Emily Deschanel are very close for Hollywood siblings. In fact, quite literally. The actress-singer appeared on Late Night on Thursday, where she revealed that not only is the New Girl set and the Bones set on the same lot, but sometimes they get the same fashionwire.com/celebrity-fashion” target=”_self”>celebrity visitors.

Deschanel—who looked lovely as always, in her signature style—shared a story with host Seth Meyers in which basketball great Kobe Bryant stopped by the New Girl set, much to her surprise. “It was kinda weird, because I wouldn’t have guessed that he would be our audience,” she said. But, as it turned out, Bryant was visiting a few sets that day, including the Bones set, where her sister films nearby.

While Meyers cracked that Bryan initially got the “wrong” Deschanel during his trip to the lot, the actress had a different theory about why the athlete visited both of them: “I like these Deschanels so much, I’m going to visit the other set … it’s one convenient location!”

Kyra Sedgwick Explains Why She Wouldn’t Let Husband Kevin Bacon Teach Her the Ukulele


October 9, 2014 @ 9:45 am

Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon have one of the longest marriages in all of Hollywood (26 years and counting!), which must make everyone ask, “How do they do it?” During a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, Sedgwick may have given a vital clue as to what makes a healthy marriage work so well for so long: knowing which things you shouldn’t engage in together.

Sedgwick told host Jimmy Kimmel that Bacon recently bought her a ukulele as a present, but she opted to be self-taught rather than have her musician husband teach her how to play. The actress—who is currently appearing as a guest star on the comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine—explained that in the beginning of their marriage Bacon attempted to teach her how to drive stick shift and it did not go well. “He was really mean,” she lovingly reminisced, “He was just a really tough teacher!” Lesson learned!
