FOR years, fans of Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry have been convinced that the actress and singer are related.
The pair’s dark hair, pale skin, and blue eyes are almost identical to one another.
Are Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry related?
Despite their uncanny similar features, Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry are not related, although they have some things in common.
Both are California girls – Katy Perry was born October 25th, 1984 in Santa Barbara and Zooey in Los Angeles on January 17th, 1980.
Katy’s parents are both Christian pastors and Zooey’s mom was an actress and her father a director.
On Instagram live in December 2020, the pair once addressed the lookalike chatter.
Katy once admitted that she used to pretend to be Zooey to get into clubs.
“I have to admit something, Zooey,” she said. “When I came to LA I was pretty much a nobody and you were like just getting so huge at that time. It was like Zooey Deschanel ran the world at that particular moment.”
“But I have to admit something to you,” she continued. “When I first got to L.A., I went to the club a lot. And I wanted to get into the club and I had no money, I had no clout, I had nothing, and sometimes I would pose as you to get into the club.”
As it turns out, Zooey already knew what Katy was doing at that time.
“People would be like, ‘I saw you!’ “the ELF actor recalled, laughing.
“But I’m such a Goody Two-shoes and people kept going, ‘I saw you out! I made eye contact with you!’ And I was like, ‘No!’ And then everybody kept telling me about this girl Katy, Katy, who looks just like you,’ and I’m like, ‘Who is this Katy?’”
