Zoey Deutch Can Make Herself Look Like a Real Housewives Cast Member
Zoey Deutch: The New Face
To say that acting is at Zoey Deutch's core is not hyperbole—just look at her family tree.
Father: Howard Deutch, who directed two of John Hughes's classic '80s films,Pretty in PinkandSome Kind of Wonderful.Mother: Lea Thompson, actress and '80s icon herself, who starred as Michael J. Fox's mother in theBack to the Futuretrilogy before going on to play the title character in the '90s sitcomCaroline in the City.
Combine those two gene pools, and show business was more than a no-brainer for Deutch; it wasn't even a question. "I never have a fun answer to the question of how I decided to become an actress," says the 21-year-old. "I never had that 'aha!' moment. It was just always what I wanted to do."
After a childhood of watching her parents at work ("It was definitely a strange experience when I would see my mom making out with various people; it made me question if my parents really loved each other," she jokes), Deutch made her screen debut at age 15. Like many young stars, she began her career at the Disney Channel, playing the love interest of Dylan Sprouse's character onThe Suite Life on Deck.
True, she may not have had the same headline status as fellow House of Mouse graduates Miley, Selena, and Demi, but fast-forward to the present and Deutch has become a leading lady in her own right. Not unlike Jessica Chastain's meteoric rise in the movie industry in 2011, when the then-little-known actress starred in five films over eight months, Deutch is rising through the ranks of Hollywood's most in demand.
So far this year Deutch has been the object of Zac Efron's affection inDirty Grandpa;a rebellious rock chick inVincent N Roxxy;and the female lead inEverybody Wants Some!!,Richard Linklater's acclaimed 1980s-era college flick. "I've said it before and I'll say it again, working with Rick was the most influential experience of my professional life," she says, adding with a laugh, "I was working with 12 guys with full wigs and muttonchops and short shorts."
But wait, there's more. Deutch recently wrappedRebel in the Rye,the highly anticipated J.D. Salinger biopic due out early next year, starring Nicholas Hoult as the notoriously reclusive writer. In the film, Deutch plays Oona O'Neill, the daughter of playwright Eugene O'Neill and briefly a romantic partner of the young Salinger. "She's incredibly complex and a child of a terrible alcoholic, was abandoned at a very young age and surrounded by controversy," Deutch says. "She had a wild life." Also in the works:Why Him?,a romantic comedy costarring James Franco and Bryan Cranston that's slated for a Christmas Day release;Before I Fall,in which she plays a teen who must relive her dying day over and over; andFlower,a coming-of-age drama that began filming in late June.

While Deutch's dramatic range has allowed her to take on an equally diverse range of looks—most notably the impressive feathered hair inEverybody Wants Some!!—her beauty aesthetic offscreen is much more subdued. "I'm pretty minimal with my makeup on a day-to-day basis," she says. "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. I take off my makeup, use Kate Somerville Clarifying Treatment Toner, and moisturize with Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream. And then I have a plethora of weird masks and things."
For her daily makeup routine, Deutch relies on a handful of products—Nars the Multiple cream-to-powder stick, Diorshow mascara, and Tarte matte lip tint in Exposed, among them—to achieve a natural look, leaving the daring looks to the professionals. "On the red carpet you explore more and have more fun." Of her favorite glam moments, Deutch points to the Austin premiere ofEverybody Wants Some!!,when she wore a stained-berry lip, strong brows, and a loose updo with a romantic black lace Rodarte number. "I really love Rodarte, and I thought that dress was so beautifully made. I just loved it."
Deutch works with the mega-stylist Elizabeth Stewart, whose clients include Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, and Chastain, but she says her off-duty style is just as low maintenance as her beauty routine. "My favorite pastime is going to estate sales and finding strange jewelry," she says. "I shop at thrift stores like Goodwill and places like that. Other than that, my go-to stores are Rachel Comey and Opening Ceremony."
Deutch spends most of her time at home in Los Angeles, where she lives with her pit-bull mix, Maybelle. "She's the love of my life," Deutch says, which a quick check of her Instagram confirms. "That's my life outside of work—my dog.
"I feel like I've been working nonstop, and now things are finally starting to come out," she continues. "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.' "
