Zoey looks absolutely gorgeous in this new photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine.
“I’ve had this strange experience where every summer of my life, I’ve been going to this same small town with the same people. There are no cars. It’s all boardwalks. You ride your bike everywhere. No one wears shoes. It’s the most bizarre and interesting experience for me because I get to see these people—it used to be for two months in the summer, but now it’s for two weeks because I’m working most of the summer. I don’t see them or speak to them for ten months out of the year. When we were younger, it didn’t really affect us that much, but when you start hitting thirteen and fourteen, you are completely different humans. Fifteen, we are very different. Sixteen, even more different. The friend group starts to change. Who you relate to is completely different from one day to the next. That’s my summer thing.”
Zoey Deutch pauses to gracefully thank the server at a café in Studio City for her vanilla latte. The foam, in accordance with the themes of our conversation, bears the countenance of a teddy bear.
Deutch is a more recent debutante on the floor of Hollywood royalty (her lineage, most immediately, is that of father Howard Deutch, the director known for films such as Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, and actress Lea Thompson, who, before becoming Mrs. Deutch, was more widely known as the mother of one Marty McFly in Back to the Future). The young Deutch, after a handful of films and TV shows as a teenager (Ringer, Beautiful Creatures, and most recently, Vampire Academy) has been on a tear, racing through characters and narratives over the last year with becoming gusto. The results of this season of grindstone will be viewable starting later this year—in Richard Linklater’s upcoming Everybody Wants Some, Chris McCoy’s Good Kids, Gary Michael Schultz’s Vincent-N-Roxxy, and by February of next year, Dirty Grandpa, directed by Dan Mazer.
