Can we adopt Zooey Deschanel as our official Culch.ie celebrity crush?

She’s just so wonderfully lovely. We should hold her aloft as a beacon of all that is perfect in the world. Ahem…

Edit: it seems she has a rival, so… [poll id=”4″]

If not her, then who?

  1. Lottie says:

    I vote for Scarlet.

  2. Kitty Cat says:

    Zooey every time!

  3. Lottie says:

    I think we need a ballot.

  4. Darren Byrne says:

    @Lottie Sit down there and don’t hurt yourself, dear. Zooey ftw. 😀

  5. travors says:

    Zooey always wins my vote, what a lady.

    I get my daily dose of Zooey here:

  6. Darren Byrne says:

    @Travors My new favourite site.

  7. Lottie says:

    Zooey is adorable, there’s no denying it. But Scarlett won out with this.

    You all know I’m right.

  8. Sinead says:

    Have you guys seen this yet??? It’s fabulous… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipltnicWff0

  9. Zooey or Scarlett?
    Daddy or Chips?

  10. NaRocRoc says:

    Zooey is cute but not gorgeous. She’s alluring yes, but not remarkable. She is vaguely sexy yes, but but but….

    … she’s no Scarlett. Those hips, those lips. That husky voice. Those come hither eyes. Those scenes with Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The sex appeal. She gets my vote every time.

  11. Sinead says:

    Has Scarlett taken Angelina Jolie’s crown as the number 1 straight-girl-crush?

  12. Annie says:

    Zoey is adorable but Scarlett is pure sexy. Yum yum.

    Hence my vote goes to Scarlett.

  13. Rick says:

    Had this discussion over vino last night. Amanda interviewed Zooey at a junket, says she’s stunning loking but a bit blank.

    I vote for an actual poll…

    And I’m in charge.

  14. Niamh says:

    Can’t we have a mancrush…on like, a man? 🙂

  15. Lottie says:

    @Rick – careful now. Darren cheats at polls. *cough* Paper Mache *cough*

    @Niamh – But boys just aren’t as pretty as Scarlett. Except John Duhamel of course but that goes without saying.

  16. Niamh says:

    This is true. Still, I’m sure we could find some droolworthy guys… 😛

  17. Lottie says:

    @Niamh – I’m sure there are enough able bodied culch.ie men by now. Should we take a vote? 🙂

  18. Niamh says:

    LOL, I think I know how that vote would go…

  19. Sinead says:

    There may be trouble ahead…

  20. Rick says:

    … but while there’s music and moonlight and love and romance…

  21. Darren Byrne says:

    @Lottie Is John Duhamel Josh’s brother?

  22. Maxi Cane says:


    Game over.

  23. Lottie says:

    @Smart Arse – Yes. He has an identical twin brother. I’ll take two please. 🙂

  24. Sinead says:

    Let’s face the music, and daaaaaaance.

  25. Darren Byrne says:

    Fine!! You want a poll – I give you a poll.

  26. TheChrisD says:

    I have to say Scarlet – because I have no idea who the other one is.

  27. Anthony McG says:

    “Other one”. :0

  28. Lottie says:

    Chris. Slowly pick up your coat and leave. No swift movements.

  29. Eoin Purcell says:

    Eoin says Zooey!

    Under rated and lovely!

  30. Annie says:

    Lads should we not have a delicious picture of Scarlett up there as well…..

    Ya know just to be fair and/or to perve on 🙂

  31. Phew.. I cast my vote, and am surprised at the results so far.

  32. Rick says:

    I second Annie…

  33. darraghdoyle says:

    Anto, I also voted for other one just to have Darren voted as a fool.

    I should probably ask this now and get it out of the way… who is this Zooey Deschanel person? I’ve not heard of her before.

  34. Darren Byrne says:

    @Darragh ARE YOU SERIOUS????

  35. @Oprah says:

    I’d rather have Scarlett on my couch anyday.

  36. darraghdoyle says:

    Darren, yep. I’ve just wiki’d her and still, nope, not ringing any “ahh so that’s who she is” bells. Vaguely remember her from Yes Man trailer.

    Top 5 reasons I should know her? I mean I could name 10 for Scarlett…

    2. She and Him (an album I gave you!!!)
    3. She’s gorgeous
    4. She’s lovely (in a sit down and have a chat kind of way)
    5. She can act (Almost Famous; Elf; The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

    Also, she may be playing Janis Joplin in the story of her life

  38. Lottie says:

    @Darragh – I am very confused and have no idea anmore which side I’m playing for but

    6. She has the sexiest voice in the world.
    7. She’s has lovely hair
    8. She was born on 17th January. That’s like the BEST day.
    9. She can play the piano, percussion, xylophone, banjo and ukulele.
    10. Just cos!

  39. Allan says:

    Scarlett outhots anyone.

  40. darraghdoyle says:

    @ Darren

    1. I’ve only seen Elf once. I don’t remember her in it.
    2. I don’t have that album – sure it was me
    3. Agreed
    4. Okay
    5. *whispers* I’ve never seen Almost Famous. I *did* see HG2G though – so that’s who she is!


    6. Natasha Khan, Bat for Lashes? Even Camille O Sullivan?
    7. She does that
    8. Really, I wasn’t told!
    9. That is impressive
    10. Ahh so that’s why!!

  41. Lottie says:

    @Darragh – as speaking voices go – Zooey wins…no Scarlett . Screw you guys, I;m going home. My head hurts.

  42. Oohhh THAT’S who she is!! I thought I recognized her…I adore Almost Famous..

  43. Zooey dammit Zooey!! Why is Scarlett ahead??

  44. Phreak says:

    ha! i voted and i’ve made a difference for all of 3 seconds. there are millions of Zooey lookalikes around but there is only one Scarlett.

  45. Zooey is a quite simply the most amazing woman… ever!!


  46. NiallOK says:

    Sorry Rick, but my vote went to Zooey…

  47. David says:

    How could you not vote for the future Ex-Mrs Scarlett Maybury??

    Shame on you. Shame on you all.

  48. well the advantage of going with Zooey is that you have Katy Perry to act as ztunt double for any kind of dangerous high-jinks…

  49. looks like my vote put her back on top (mmmmm) plus there’s this awesome trailer http://www.foxsearchlight.com/500daysofsummer/

  50. Darren Byrne says:

    @Stewart You’re my new hero. 🙂

  51. Paddy says:
