I had a chance to chat with singer/songwriter/actress Zooey Deschanel yesterday in preview of her set with She & Him at the 5th Avenue Theatre next week. Naturally, when chatting with the wife of Bremerton son/Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, the conversation takes a ferry ride across the water. Maybe I'm just reading between the lines here, but it sounds to me like Bremerton's about to get some new neighbors. Here's what happened:
Have you been out to Bremerton yet to see [Gibbard's] hometown?
Deschanel: Yeah, it's really nice, very cute, very pretty. I like it. I haven't really spent any time in the town of Bremerton. I've only been basically to Ben's parents' house, which is very pretty. It's a nice area.
Ever consider making the move? I think the publicity of a Deschanel/Gibbard house in Bremerton would do more for the town than any stimulus package could.
Well, I think we're going to stay in LA.
You know, Quincy Jones is also from Bremerton. Maybe he could produce the Ben Gibbard/Zooey Deschanel record.
(Laughs) We're not going to make a record.
Well, no, because we're married. You wouldn't want your personal life to get in the way of your professional life, or your professional life to get in the way of your personal life.
