Zooey Deschanel Gets Honest: 'Daisy Dukes Are Not For People Over 30'

Zooey Deschanel is sweet. Zooey Deschanel is adorkable. Zooey Deschanel is sugar and spice and everything nice, so much so she'd never hurt anyone or say anything harsh.

Except, thankfully, it's been discovered that Zooey does have some negative opinions and is capable of expressing them in zinger form. The "New Girl" star is the latest Lucky cover girl, posing in Derek Lam for the March 2014 issue and delivering some refreshingly un-Zooey-like gems inside:

"I hate to say it, but chartreuse is an ugly color -- it just is."

On blousy 1980s cuts: "Not flattering, in my opinion."

"Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30. I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that right now."

Zooey has been criticized for being girlish and "adorable" and seemingly innocent, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have strong opinions.

We just wonder if, say, Jessica Simpson would agree with them. Read more from her Lucky interview at
