zooey deschanel 500 Zooey Deschanel's feminist teen rant to Vogue magazineZooey Deschanel is a standout and apparently always has been.

]]>tweeted. “Proud of my feminist teen self.” The letter reads: “Why would you want to limit the spectrum of beauty to an ‘ideal’ when you, as a popular womens magazine, have the opportunity to expand it? I don’t think any woman should have to feel as if she needs to shove herself into an ‘ideal’ to be beautiful. Beauty should be something that is celebrated and something that is enjoyable, not something that people should feel uncomfortable about achieving. Most of the women, and certainly most of the adolescent girls, in the United States do not feel completely secure with themselves, especially with their appearance; is insecurity something you want to advocate? As American women, we don’t need discouragement, but inspiration. Zooey Deschanel

Wow-za! It’s all water under the bridge for Deschanel though, who followed up with, “PS: the vogue letter was published in the magazine! no hard feelings @voguemagazine, love your mag! I was a feisty 17.”
