MTV — Zoey Deutch hates the word “quirky.” I discovered this within a minute of meeting her at the Tribeca Film Festival last month, when I used the word and she made a face that was a cross between “I just ate an entire lemon” and pure disgust.

“You’ve found my trigger word,” she said with a grimace.

To be fair, I hadn’t used the word to describe Deutch. “Quirky” doesn’t begin to encapsulate the 22-year-old — born into Hollywood as the daughter of actress Lea Thompson and director Howard Deutch, she got her first breakout role in Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!, which earned her Hollywood acclaim after a handful of roles in failed YA franchises. She followed that with Why Him?, opposite Bryan Cranston and James Franco, and her first lead role in Ry Russo-Young’s grim, affecting Before I Fall, a part that earned her the designation of It girl — another title that Deutch openly detests.

But I was simply referring to the way indie teen heroines are often carelessly written off as “quirky,” regardless of their emotional depth and complexities. After all, the word is seldom used to describe young male characters. To be quirky is to be whimsical at best and powerless at worst. This is what makes Deutch’s performance in Max Winkler’s dark comedy Flower so refreshing.

In Flower, she plays Erica Vandross, a smart-mouthed teen who’s allergic to things like responsibility and feelings. She spends her days riding around the San Bernardino Valley in her Adidas slides, stopping to give random middle-aged men blow jobs — and then busting them with her two best friends for cash. Erica is part scammer, part vigilante. She’s also kind of an asshole.

“The movie is never at any point about this young woman learning how to be nice. I’m so sick of seeing that story,” Deutch insisted.

Erica has few inhibitions; she’s brash and deeply flawed. The film opens with Erica giving a police officer a blow job in his parked car. In his orgasmic haze, the uniformed cop asks where she learned to be so good. “Middle school,” Deutch says wryly.

There is no denial that year 2017 is THE YEAR OF ZOEY DEUTCH. Women In Film has announced honoreed for this year’s Crystal + Lucy Awards and Zoey is one of the ladies to be honored! You can read the report bellow, and i think it’s fair to say that we’re all happy and proud of Zoey!

DEADLINE — Women In Film has announced honorees for this year’s Crystal + Lucy Awards, its annual fundraising dinner that supports the Los Angeles organization’s educational and philanthropic programs and its advocacy for gender parity in the industry.

At the June 13 gala at the Beverly Hilton, actor-director-producer Elizabeth Banks will receive The Crystal Award for Excellence in Film, Black-ish star Tracee Ellis will get The Lucy Award for Excellence in Television, actress Zoey Deutch will receive The Women In Film Face of the Future Award; and director Mira Nair will receive the The Dorothy Arzner Directors Award.

Also getting honors: newsman Dan Rather will receive The Norma Zarky Humanitarian Award and The Women In Film Beacon Award wil go to Sony Pictures Classics co-heads Michael Barker and Tom Bernard.

The gala will be hosted by Jessica Williams.

“Throughout the last five years, Women In Film has focused its efforts on research, raising awareness, and sustainable solutions for gender parity in media,” WIF president Cathy Schulman said. “The theme of this year’s Crystal + Lucy Awards gala is ‘Evolve,’ reflecting the advocacy work we’ve done, the pressing demand for systemic change, and the promise of an inclusive future.”

BROADLY — “Turn that off,” Zoey Deutch says pointing to the recording device on my iPhone. “This is the most boring shit in the world.” I laugh her comment off and keep the recorder running, somehow sensing that “boring” is the wrong word for what’s about to come. Zoey then launches into an impassioned recap of what she learned at the Amsterdam Tulip Museum, becoming visibly excited when she gets to the part about how the price of flowers related to the price of Manhattan when the Dutch bought it in the early 17th century. “One tulip bulb cost three times as much as what they bought New York for,” she says, leaning toward me with contagious enthusiasm. “That’s how much flowers meant to them, which is so crazy! We don’t think about flowers that way nowadays because it’s so easy to transport seeds and flowers and bulbs. Isn’t that crazy?” She looks at me expectantly, and then undercuts the whole thing. “Wait ’til you fact check that and you’re like ‘no, Zoey was like on crack.'”

Zoey is right about one thing: Manhattan was purchased for a collection of trinkets, beads, and buttons that likely were valued less than some tulip bulbs (tulips were having a moment). But she was wrong about something else: Zoey is filled with such ebullient charm and innate animation that absolutely nothing she says is “boring shit.”

Though many movie-goers first got to know her in the 2014 comedy Vampire Academy, Zoey is now in the middle of the type of year that people in the business call a breakout. So far this year, she’s been the cover star of magazines like Marie Claire and C, and sat front-row at fashion weeks from Paris to Milan. Just last month, the Dallas Film Festival gave her the Shining Star Award, a trophy presented to those “prepared to accept the mantle of leading the next generation of filmmakers.”

W — On Monday night, in a suite at The Pierre in New York, up-and-coming actress Zoey Deutch was getting ready for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. This year’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” — and Deutch wanted to be dressed appropriately. “I really wanted to stay on theme,” she said, admiring her dress. “That was the one thing I was really interested in.”

Her white, floor-length gown, a custom creation by the designer Tory Burch, is a nod to Kawakubo’s signatures: it has a sleek silhouette and oversized sleeves, but comes in a Burch-approved organza tulle. To complement the look, Deutch wore her hair in a low bun, and kept her makeup minimal, with just a flash of peachy, coral color across each eyelid and her luminous skin.

“Who needs to get married?” laughed the 22-year-old starlet. “I will have been to the Met Ball twice now! I could just get married in my pajamas and I wouldn’t care.”

The first time she attended the Met Gala, Deutch didn’t quite know what to expect. “I didn’t really know that many people last year so I was nervous, but then I walked in and ran into one of my best friends, Chloe Grace Moretz, like immediately,” she said. This time around, she’s fresh off the big debut of her latest film at The Tribeca Film Festival, Flower, with several other new projects in the works, including Rebel in the Rye and a new Netflix project with Glen Powell titled Set It Up. The chances are high that she will see more than a few familiar faces at this year’s fete. “I know more people now!”

As she talked, a crowd of people arrived to steam her dress once more and make all the last-minute adjustments. Meanwhile, her glam squad was finalizing Deutch’s accessories with Tory Burch’s team, looking through an edit of box clutches and various statement earrings. “I am still deciding about the accessories,” she said as tried Fred Leighton pearl earrings and then swapped back to the big, white circular earrings (by Tory Burch) she had been keen on earlier. As she slipped on black Dries van Noten heels, she said, “Aren’t they great? I picked the out yesterday at like 6 p.m.”

Here, she talks to W exclusively about how her final look came together, wearing Comme des Garçons at age 11, her obsession with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and more.
