for nuance.

Cinemaphiles have long known Deschanel for her breakout performance in Cameron Crowe's ensemble film "Almost Famous," opposite Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson and Frances McDormand, and "All the Real Girls," for which she received a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead. Indie film buffs often cite Deschanel's depth in films like "The Good Girl," with Jennifer Aniston, and "Eulogy," with Debra Winger and Ray Romano, and kids of all ages fell in love with her memorable theatrical and vocal performances in the Jon Favreau Christmas classic "Elf," opposite Will Ferrell.

In 1999, Deschanel made her feature-film debut in Lawrence Kasdan's ensemble drama "Mumford." She played the loveable sidekick Kit in "Failure to Launch," with Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker, and starred in the box-office hit "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," with Sam Rockwell, Mos Def and John Malkovich.

Deschanel was seen in the Walt Disney film "Bridge to Terabithia," based on the Newbery award-winning children's novel, and she provided the voice of a surfing penguin, alongside Shia LaBeouf and Jeff Bridges, in the animated hit movie "Surf's Up." She also co-starred in the Warner Bros. film "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," opposite Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck, in addition to the independent films "Live Free or Die," with Aaron Stanford; "Gigantic," with Paul Dano; "Flakes," with Aaron Stanford; "The Go-Getter," with Lou Taylor Pucci; "The Good Life," for writer/director Stephen Berra; and Adam Rapp's "Winter Passing," opposite Will Ferrell and Ed Harris.

She starred, with Mark Wahlberg, in the 20th Century Fox thriller "The Happening"; "Abandon," for director Stephen Gaghan; "Big Trouble," for director Barry Sonnenfeld; the period comedy "Your Highness," alongside James Franco, Danny McBride and Natalie Portman; and the hit Syfy channel Emmy Award-nominated miniseries "Tin Man."

In addition to Deschanel's on-screen work, she has also earned rave reviews and popular acclaim for her collaboration with M. Ward on her band She & Him. Pitchfork Media said, "She & Him has given Deschanel her best role yet, one that shows off her charm and intelligence to best effect—one that she is essentially writing for herself." Music has always been a passion for Deschanel, and her band has produced two albums: "She & Him: Volume 1" and "She & Him: Volume 2." The albums boast 21 original songs written by Deschanel and four covers of some of her personal favorites. Additionally, the band has sold out tours in the U.S., the U.K. and Europe. Deschanel's music has only added to her performance tapestry. Her latest album, "She & Him: Volume 2," debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 and was one of the most critically acclaimed albums in 2010. For Disney'’s animated 2011 movie "Winnie the Pooh," Deschanel sang the classic Sherman Brothers theme song and wrote and performed original music. 

Deschanel is the face of Rimmel Cosmetics and has starred in two campaigns for Cotton for which she also lent original music. She is co-creator and a frequent contributor to the website HelloGiggles. Deschanel, who was named for the male character in J. D. Salinger’'s "Franny and Zooey," spent much of her childhood on-location with her actress mother, Mary Jo, and her father Caleb, an Academy Award-nominated cinematographer. She credits her father with instilling in her a keen visual sense and great style.
