Zoey Deutch is on her way to becoming young Hollywood's newest It girl.
Donning a colorful Burberry shirt and a pretty pink pout, the 21-year-old actress glows on the cover of harper by Harper's Bazaar magazine's September beauty issue, which she also guest edited. In her accompanying interview with the glossy, Zoey gets candid on her famous family (her mom is actress Lea Thompson and her dad is Howard Deutch, director of Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful), growing up in the spotlight and entering the acting world.
WHA?! My cover for the September issue of #harperbyharpersbazaar! Thank you to the bestest ever(est) @laurabrown99. And thank you so much to @monakuhnstudio @mollyrstern @mrchrismcmillan @jessicaderuiter @mccarthylauren @aidenmatthewcohen @teamid @harpersbazaarus. I can't begin to explain how excited I am about this!
Zoey admits that seeing her mom -- who starred in films like Back to the Future, All the Right Moves and the aforementioned Some Kind of Wonderful -- "making out with various people" was "definitely a strange experience."
"It made me question if my parents really loved each other," the blond beauty explains.
But that didn't stop her from following in her parents' footsteps. She says entering show business has always been her dream. "I never have a fun answer to the question of how I decided to become an actress," she dishes. "I never had that 'aha!' moment. It was just always what I wanted to do."
Zoey got her start on the Disney Channel, appearing as Maya Bennett on The Suite Life on Deck when she was 15 years old. She later made appearances in movies like Beautiful Creatures, Vampire Academy, Everybody Wants Some!! and Dirty Grandpa. Now, she's starring in a number of upcoming films, including Why Him? alongside James Franco and Bryan Cranston, Before I Fall, the Ry Russo-Young-directed adaptation of the 2010 YA novel by Lauren Oliver of the same name, and the J.D. Salinger biopic, Rebel in the Rye.
"I feel like I've been working nonstop, and now things are finally starting to come out," Zoey gushes. "It's funny because in the past few years people in my life have questioned whether I was lying to them about filming in Baton Rouge or Atlanta or Vancouver or wherever in order to ditch them. Now that everything's starting to trickle out, they're like, 'Oh, that's what you were doing. You weren't lying.' And I'm like, 'Thanks for doubting me, great friends.'"
Despite her recent success, Zoey confesses she still prefers shopping at vintage stores over splurging on high-end brands. "Going to estate sales and finding strange jewelry [is one of my favorite pastime activities]," the fashionista reveals. "I shop at thrift stores like Goodwill and places like that. Other than that, my go-to stores are Rachel Comey and Opening Ceremony."
And the secret to her seemingly flawless skin? She swears by Kate Somerville's Clarifying Treatment Toner and Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream.
"I'm pretty minimal with my makeup on a day-to-day basis," Zoey adds. "At this point in my life, I try to wear less makeup and focus on repairing damaged skin. I spend so much time on my skin, it's crazy."
