Zooey Deschanel is America's indie sweetheart. She acts! She sings! She stares at you with a quirky yet distant gaze! And she co-stars as a less-than-faithful lesbian in this weekend's ensemble comedy 'Our Idiot Brother.' After a memorable but small role in 'Almost Famous,' Deschanel rose to fame co-starring in 'Elf' and the surprisingly polarizing '(500) Days of Summer.' But! Every actor has an origin. Some origins can be embarrassing, some a glimpse of what is yet to come. With that, let's look at seven early performances from Zooey Deschanel – which, inexplicably, includes a music video by The Offspring and sharing a scene with Vanilla Ice.
