Zooey Deschanel hates 'beige' Thanksgiving food


Zooey Deschanel hates 'beige' Thanksgiving food

By Cassie Alsup. CREATED Nov 12, 2013

The number of people who don't like Thanksgiving food has just risen to one.

Zooey Deschanel is a Thanksgiving food hater! On Monday night's episode of  "Jimmy Kimmel Live" she told the host that she loves the holiday and spending time with her family, but it's the food that turns her off.

What doesn't she like about the culinary delicacies of America's favorite holiday to chow down? The color.

Deschanel says most of the food is "beige" or "grey" and that's just not appetizing.....turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, even pumpkin pie: all shades of beige/gray.

"Stuffing is just basically salty, wet bread" she scoffs. "I'd rather have regular bread."

After discussing better poultry options than turkey (duck or chicken), she concedes a tiny bit by saying that "smoked" or "fried" turkey are actually acceptable.

Deschanel, while your antics on Fox's "New Girl" never cease to amuse us, you're on your own this time. Excuse us while we prepare for a turkey-induced coma!
