On her shine bright way to be a A-class Hollywood actress, Zoey Deutch is noted not only by her performance but also by her exquisite taste for fashion.
On Instagram, Zoey Deutch describes herself as “a simple girl who knows the difference between a manatee and a dugong”. At the end of this interview, I checked, and she did, in all the detail you’d expect from a zoologist.

At 22, Zoey is already one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood, yet she has the smiling, slightly dizzy look of a girl from another planet, who lives with her sister in a “farmhouse” in Los Angeles breeding chickens, and who would gladly run away from any gala evening to go home and hug her dog Maybelle.

She likes to describe herself as “kind and ambitious, because we shouldn’t fear ambition, and we should never abandon kindness”. She’s already worked with a maestro of independent cinema such as Richard Linklater ( Everybody Wants Some!! ), and she’s shared a set with veterans such as Robert De Niro ( Dirty Grandpa ) and Bryan Cranston ( Why Him? ).
This year, Zoey also won the Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award®, in recognition not only of her talent on the set, but also for her clear ideas of it: “Max Mara does a marvelous job of creating and maintaining dialogue on the role of women in the cinema, because we need strong, courageous, powerful, well-known female role models”. Her mantra chimes in with modern feminism: “Women’s rights are human rights”.

When I ask who her own female role models are, she mentions women who are very different from one another, complex personalities that are difficult to boil down to a stereotype of any kind: Lena Dunham, the creator of the TV series Girls , a legend like Meryl Streep, the English actress Emily Blunt, and above all her mother, Lea Thompson, who was the mother of Marty McFly in Back to the Future .

At the last Sundance Film Festival, the mecca of American talent, Zoey was in two films: Rebel in the Rye , a biopic of the writer J.D. Salinger (she plays the woman who broke his heart) and the touching Before I Fall , based on the novel by Lauren
Oliver. “You know when the viewer gets so emotional they grab the hand of the person next to them? That’s what makes me want to work in the movies: that emotion, that grip”.

When she talks about her love of acting, Zoey gets almost as excited as she does when she talks about dogs or dugongs: “I want to work in the theatre, I want to do a western, I want to play a real bad girl role, I want to work with my favorite directors, David O. Russell and Xavier Dolan: an artist can’t plan when they’ll be inspired, or when the right film will come along, but they can work and dream, without ever giving up”.
