London, Feb 11 (ANI): Zooey Deschanel has revealed that she was horrified after accidentally entering a beauty pageant when she was a teenager.
The 32-year-old actress thought that she had signed up for a talent showcase but was left scandalized after understanding the nature of the competition.
"At 14 I accidentally entered a beauty pageant. It was basically all the trappings of a beauty pageant, without the swimsuit round!" the News Express quoted her as telling Company magazine.
"You had to do a big musical opening number and answer the sort of questions they ask in beauty pageants, about charity. I was horrified when I realised what it was. I thought I was entering a talent contest - a pageant was not cool," she said.
Despite not wanting to win the crown, Deschanel refused to bow out of the running.
"I'm not a quitter, so I stuck it out, and my mum and sister laughed at me the entire time. I didn't win. A girl who played the viola did," she added. (ANI)
