Emily Deschanel is an alien?

If you ask her sister Zooey... maybe. Zooey Deschanel's movie 500 days of Summer is premiering in the UK and the DailyMail has a very quirky (or is that just Zooey herself) interview with the actress.

I grew up believing my sister was from the planet Neptune and had been sent down to Earth to kill me.

I believed this because my sister Emily convinced me of it when I was a toddler. I think she'd seen Invasion Of The Body Snatchers and her imagination ran away with her. There's a part of me that still believes it. I have moments when I think, 'Hmm, could that be true?' Occasionally I ask my sister about it and she responds by pulling an alien face, which only confuses matters.

I believe this is true (and so freakin' hilarious of course) since Emily has mentioned it in one of her interviews; it's somewhere on youtube.

Yeah Leeloo you're right. When she was a little girl, Emily told her sister that the alines had killed the real Emily and replaced her with one of them. There's a home movie (I don't know if it is the right english word...) of their father with an histerical-crying Zooey yelling that the aliens would kill her and a (very cruel) Emily reading a book and with nonchalance saying "I don't know what is she talking about...".
That's the dark side of Emily I like! Very hilarious.

Yes I remember that interview too-it was on Jimmy Kimmel,some time around Season 2,Emily mentioned it herself!And I remember she said something about things older sisters/brothers do to the younger ones,sometimes:"You have to torture them a little bit",lol!

I think it's still on Youtube...

HA! I love this! I loved the story when Emily told it on Jimmy Kimmel (and was secretly disappointed that I had never thought of something so inventive to do to my own little sister,) but the fact that Zooey still wonders if its true just makes it even better, haha. I'd love to know what Emily's "alien face" looks like. She's hilarious.

I finally got to see the movie and was rewarded with not only a great movie, but also a glimpse of Caroline (well the actress anyway)!
