Zooey Deschanel reminds us that celebrities are people too

Zooey Deschanel has recently shared a makeup-free selfie that turned our world upside-down. Mostly, because she looks like a totally normal person. How did that happen?

We’ve always suspected or, rather, hoped that celebrities are indeed real human beings. And we may actually have been right all along.

The always-gorgeous Zooey Deschanel posted an adorable makeup-free mirror selfie on Saturday via Instagram, wearing a simple long-sleeved shirt and her hair tossed up in a messy bun. Check it out!

Good morning! #nomakeup #nofilter

While she is still mind-blowingly beautiful (cruel world!), we can’t help but notice that Deschanel very nearly resembles a regular person. We — obviously — roll out of bed on Saturdays in some very questionable pyjamas, a greased over mane poorly held together by a dilapidating hair tie and a half-melted facial expression that resembles the gunk at the bottom of a kettle. We kind of thought that celebrities are not afflicted with such normalcy.

Who’s the better Pantene spokesmodel: Gisele, Eva, Zooey or Queen Latifah? >>

In our heads, famous people are awoken by exotic birds at midday, slip into their silk robes and drink freshly squeezed juice on the terrace whilst getting a massage. We feel as if Deschanel’s selfie has just shaken our entire understanding of reality. What if — and this is pure conjecture — celebrities are people too?

Just kidding! They’re obviously demi-gods.

We leave you to ponder life’s great questions. Tell us, what is your Saturday morning routine and are you surprised by Zooey Deschanel’s makeup-free selfie?
