The New Girl star has essentially defined our newest portmanteau, adorkable. Deschanel's character Jess — her obliviousness to one-night stands, her awkward tendency to sing everything, her affinity for bows and baking — seems almost too real to be fictionalized. With her quirky sense of style and even quirkier personality, the indie-film veteran and She & Him frontwoman has solidified her role as a dork we can't help but love.
A few of us fell in love with this redhead when she played Jonah Hill's love interest in Superbad, and a few more of us were smitten with her turn as Olive in Easy A, and the world wanted to become her bestie after her star turn in The Help. But with her role as Gwen Stacy in the newest installment of the cult comic classic The Amazing Spiderman, she will surely be tangling the heartstrings of nerd culture everywhere.
