Zooey Deschanel: 'Girls Spit in My Face'

The "adorkable" Zooey Deschanel is Allure magazine's February cover girl, and in the candid interview, Zooey reveals that she was bullied in the past.
"Girls spit in my face, people were so mean to me, I'd cry every day," she tells Allure.
Of course it's very hard to picture that now, what with the smash success of her hit Fox show New Girl, and her constant labeling as Hollywood's "It" girl -- a label she herself has trouble coming to terms with.
"They keep calling me an 'it' girl, and at this point it makes me laugh, because I've done that so many times: 'You're it'; 'you're not it'. What is 'it'?," she says.
Though that's not to say that negative press in the media doesn't affect her.
"I can't go on Gawker," she admits. "I actually think the writing is really funny, but there is a chance that somebody is undercutting me."
And what about her famous bangs and vintage style, which led to her hipster icon status and being called "the pinup of Williamsburg" (New York's most cliché hipster-filled neighborhood)?
"I've only been to Williamsburg once," she says.
So … maybe we should be calling her "the pinup of Silver Lake?"
