Zooey: I like to have guy friends

1. Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel has revealed she finds it easy to have male friends.

The 31-year-old actress stars in new Channel 4 sitcom New Girl as Jess, who moves into a flat with three men after breaking up with her boyfriend.

Zooey revealed: "I've always had both girl and guy friends."

She added: "I think it's important because you get something different form both of them. But I love hanging around with boys - it's fun."

The (500) Days of Summer star - who has been nominated for a Golden Globe award for the part - said she was happy to break from her movie career to take part in the show as it was so good.

Zooey said: "I really just go where the material is and this was such an amazing part. Movie or TV, if I read this part anywhere, I will do whatever it takes to be able to do this part. It was very much within my wheelhouse.

"But also it wasn't a character that I'd played before, but something that I really felt was a completely a great part for me. So that's why I chose to do TV."

But she hasn't ruled out the big screen completely.

She said: "Hopefully on my hiatus I'll be able to shoot a movie. That'd be great. If it doesn't happen it doesn't happen, but I think that ultimately that's the goal is to be able to balance both."

Scorpio:

This is an ideal time to make plans for the future. If you've been thinking about getting a better job, start getting the necessary training. It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
