Three years ago, Zooey Deschanel was bothered by always being mistaken for Katy Perry. "It's a little bit annoying, to be totally blunt,” she told MTV. “I'm happy that she's famous enough now that she's not going out and being mistaken for me." But now Deschanel’s made peace with it. Asked by Allure recently if she still minds the comparison, she gushed: 'No, she's really pretty!” And in a strange twist, OK! magazine recently reported that Perry’s ex, Russell Brand, is now interested in making the New Girl his new girl. "Russell has had his eye on Zooey for a long time," a friend told the magazine. "And he's been sending funny, flirty texts to see if they can get together."
