Unafraid and unrehearsed, Zoey Deutch is the most down-to-earth rising star born to two ’80s Hollywood powerhouses you’ll ever meet.

Zoey Deutch is stuck in traffic. The Los Angeles native is clearly accustomed to gridlock, because she proceeds to describe it over the phone with the smooth and appraising air of a connoisseur. “I’m not sure if you’re familiar with L.A. traffic, but it is the most fun,” she jokes. “A thrill.” Seconds later, the actress briefly interrupts our conversation to honk at an aggressive driver who has just darted into her lane (I can hear the beep of her horn—it’s quick and direct, as even-tempered and levelheaded as a honk can get). “I’m so sorry this is happening,Deutch apologizes. “Thank you for going with it. You’re so nice.

For the record, Deutch is the nice one. The 23-year-old actress seems genuinely concerned about me, and I’m genuinely concerned about… me. I want to ask Deutch about her latest projects, her meteoric ascent to stardom, but haven’t found an artful way to steer the conversation away from traffic (“Hey, you know what isn’t stuck in the slow lane? Your career!”). And because Deutch is a busy actress with a very busy schedule, I’m keenly aware that every passing moment is a missed opportunity. So I blurt out a question about the Academy Awards, which Deutch recently attended in an eco-conscious couture gown by Elie Saab—a look that was put together by her stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, and roundly praised by the fashion community. “That was so powerful,Deutch says of the Oscars. “I was able to watch all of my heroes celebrate their work. And then I got to mingle and trip over things and desperately search for snacks.

And there it is. Into this static-filled connection, Deutch reveals all of the qualities that make her a rare and compelling figure in Hollywood. She’s a major star without a major ego, a leading lady who can appreciate both high art and snack food. She stays grounded in the glare of the spotlight and seems to have a natural immunity to hype.

The question is: How?

The daughter of actress Lea Thompson (Back to the Future) and director Howard Deutch (Pretty in Pink), Zoey Deutch grew up in the San Fernando Valley “surrounded by cool artists.” I ask Deutch if she thinks her close proximity to the business might account for her pragmatic view of it. “Look, all artists pull from their personal experiences, and anyone who tells you that isn’t the case is out of their mind,” she says. “But growing up in this business definitely gave me a unique perspective on the job. I learned early on to value preparation. I take that seriously.

In other words, Deutch does her homework—and it shows. The young actress has built an impressive catalog of work since her big-screen debut in 2013’s Beautiful Creatures, in which she holds her own alongside the likes of Emma Thompson, Viola Davis and Jeremy Irons. But it’s in the new indie film Flower that Deutch finds a vehicle for her startling versatility and is able to display her deep commitment to her craft. Deutch plays Erica Vandross, a proudly irreverent 17-year-old who uses her sexuality to extort money from older, ostensibly powerful men who take advantage of people. “The character felt so complicated, frustrating and fragile to me,” says Deutch. “My initial thoughts when I read the script were, ‘I can’t believe they’re going to let me make a movie where the central character gets to do this kind of stuff and talk like that.’ I feel like I’ve been sitting on the sidelines watching all my male actor friends get to play parts like this.

To prepare for what she calls a “dream role, Deutch read books on “teenage angst and struggle,” such as Beatrice Sparks’ Go Ask Alice and Mary Pipher’s Reviving Ophelia. She and director Max Winkler researched borderline personality disorder (“I feel strongly that Erica suffers from it”) and attended a therapy session together. “I was half my character and half myself, and the therapist knew I was playing a part in Max’s film. I know it sounds silly, but it was awesome.

While Deutch tapped into her character’s psychology, the film itself taps into the zeitgeist. “We made this movie before the Harvey story broke,Deutch says, referring to the allegations of sexual assault brought against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein that prompted the global #MeToo movement. “It’s not a secret that this business has a very unequal power struggle and that women have been taken advantage of and preyed upon for as long as its inception. And this movie was written as a way to capture that feeling of powerlessness. It’s not like my character handles it in a productive way—she doesn’t. And even though the movie doesn’t provide answers, it reflects how women want to get some kind of control over their lives.

The message resonates with Deutch, who is an ardent supporter of women’s rights and the Time’s Up campaign against gender discrimination. I ask her if she feels a certain responsibility as a young woman actor to keep the momentum going, and to push hard for change both inside and outside her industry. Her answer is startling—and heartening. “A responsibility? Maybe. But I think what’s even more powerful is that I feel inspired and encouraged to be a strong, independent person. It’s not that I’m being forced to take a stand. I’m excited for the future.

The future may be fixed in her gaze, but Deutch is still committed to realizing longtime goals. Her upcoming project,Set It Up on Netflix, is the result of a pact she and her Everybody Wants Some!! co-star Glen Powell formed a few years ago. “Glen and I vowed that we would find a smart, funny romantic comedy and then we would make it. And we freaking did it.” In the film, Deutch and Powell play overworked, undervalued assistants who coax (read: trap) their bosses into a romantic relationship in order to score a little free time for themselves. The story is lighthearted, playful and easy to digest, but it still manages to unravel stubborn stereotypes, most notably, the cliché of the one-note female love interest. “I feel like it’s a truly feminist version of a romantic comedy,” says Deutch, whose character, Harper, provides the comedic and dramatic substance of the story. “I’ve played a one-dimensional female character in a male-driven comedy before, and that is a very difficult thing to do well,” she says. “You know that famous line about how there are no small parts, only small actors? I think that’s bullshit. As an actor, you really are at the mercy of the words you’re given to say. I will try to follow the well-written word. But I won’t try to manipulate a path for my career. I want to have the opportunity to play different people and keep mixing it up. That’s important to me.

One thing’s for certain: Whichever path or direction Deutch decides to take, the actress will most definitely be in the driver’s seat. Don’t try cutting her off.

The Last Magazine – If most teen movies are concerned with a loss of innocence, then Max Winkler’s new film Flower, out this week and starring Zoey Deutch, is not your typical teen movie. In Flower, the 23-year-old Deutch plays Erica Vandross, a seventeen-year-old whose sexual confidence far outstrips her certainty in other parts of life. Her modus operandi is to offer blow jobs to men she can extort for money, saving up so that she can bail her father out of jail. The film starts with her giving one of these blow jobs to a policeman (“Where’d you learn to give head like that?” he gasps. “Middle school,” she says impassively) and ends with a visit to prison. In between, there’s a crusade to bring down a male teacher that her stepbrother Luke, played by Joey Morgan, has accused of molestation as well as a Thelma and Louise-esque escape attempt, with Luke and Erica speeding across a Joshua tree-punctuated landscape in a stolen Saab convertible and dressed in clothes seemingly inspired by Floridian retirees—Erica in particular has a penchant for flamingo-colored sunglasses and palm-tree prints. The showdown, when it comes, is emotional, not physical, and involves a seemingly innocuous moment that causes Erica to break down in Luke’s arms.

I think that ultimately most movies portray vulnerability as a loss of innocence, but by the end of this movie, it’s the opposite direction,” says Deutch, who in real life speaks with the same breakneck cadence as her character. Though the plot is driven largely by some decisions of dubious morality on Erica’s part, the audience feels at least empathetic, if not quite sympathetic, toward her—a fact that speaks volumes about Deutch’s ability to tap into the subtleties of being human and, more specifically, a teenager who’s desperately trying to cover her fear of abandonment. “You have to believe that beyond all of Erica’s bravado there’s this fragile girl,” points out Deutch. “A movie like Flower is about the regaining of innocence and about the learning process of allowing yourself to be vulnerable.

Deutch has Hollywood running through her veins—her parents are director Howard Deutch and actress/director Lea Thompson, while her sister, Madelyn, is also an actress—and may have dabbled briefly in competitive jazz dance growing up (Thompson also briefly flirted with a career in dancing before turning to acting), but she always knew she wanted to act. At the prestigious Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, she majored in both performance and visual arts. “I have an immense amount of gratitude for being surrounded by so many people who do similar, like-minded things,” she says. She started acting nearly ten years ago, with her first part on the Disney Channel’s The Suite Life on Deck, but more recent roles have included the love interest and only female in the main cast of Richard Linklater’s Eighties frat-house film Everybody Wants Some!!, a redeemed bully in the teen drama Before I Fall, and the socialite Oona O’Neill, girlfriend of Nicholas Hoult’s JD Salinger, in the biopic Rebel in the Rye. Later this year, she will appear in The Year of Spectacular Men alongside her sister, who also wrote the script and score. The film was directed by her mother. (“Everybody always wants some kind of dirty detail—I would too, a mother and two sisters made a movie!—but the truth is, we got along really well and respected each other throughout the entire process,” she has previously said.)

But despite this show reel, Deutch says that Flower’s Erica was her “dream role. “The character felt so complicated and frustrating and vulnerable, and I’d watched so many of my male friends get these types of roles,” she says. “I think there’s a lot of strength in vulnerability.”

The movie was shot over only seventeen days, a short amount of time to ask actors to form any sort of bond together, but a lot of the work was done beforehand. Deutch cites texts such as Go Ask Alice, about a fifteen-year-old teenage runaway who develops a drug habit, and Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls, a 1994 analysis by therapist Mary Pipher of the depression, eating disorders, and low self-esteem she saw in her young female clients, as being key to helping her understand what she saw as Erica’s personality disorder. “How I interpreted it was that Erica is somebody who makes serious efforts to avoid abandonment and she has this distorted sense of self,” she says. “She has patterns of unstable relationships in her life.” With Winkler’s approval, she attended therapy, answering questions as if she were Erica. The therapist, she says, knew that her name was Zoey and that she would play the role of Erica in Flower but didn’t know that Deutch was attempting to actually personify Erica during their sessions. “We wanted her opinion firsthand on what she thought if I was Erica.”

That Deutch embodies the fragile world of her character so completely and so easily is the result of an environment where she didn’t feel intimidated to do what needed to be done. It was also the first time she’d worked with a female cinematographer, Carolina Costa, who was responsible for the hazy, sun-bleached visual direction of the film. “Not only did she make me feel safe, she made me feel supported, and I loved the freedom that she gave me to move around,Deutch says.

Overall, according to Deutch, the writers and Winkler were collaborative and open, and she never felt like she couldn’t voice an opinion, particularly if she thought her character would do or say something different. Prior to shooting, she was encouraged to spend a lot of time with Maya Eshet and Dylan Gelula, who play her best friends Claudine and Kala in the film. The trio would go to the mall “and get milkshakes together” and scour vintage stores to find clothes they thought their characters would wear. “Max was really adamant that he wanted every fiber of my DNA to go into this,Deutch says. The actress also helped design Erica’s bedroom, working with the designers and artists who created it. “Ultimately, whether we realized it or not, this allowed us to feel very comfortable in a really organic way.”

For Deutch, the research has always been part of the appeal. For the role of Oona O’Neill (daughter of Eugene) in Rebel in the Rye, she delighted in delving into a world that was so well documented and threw herself into learning about elite New York society in the Forties. “Here’s this person, O’Neill, and she was taking voice lessons, she had this affected Atlantic accent, she took these etiquette classes, she would drink a martini and smoke a cigarette,” she says. “It was a very interesting world. It was the first time I’d played a real person, and there was that pressure that goes with playing a real person—it becomes a part of their history, and you want to do justice to that.

Doing justice to her characters is a theme throughout Deutch’s performances. There’s a clear line of empathy that runs through her roles as she brings them to life and injects them with depth. Growing up, she admired the 1937 Katharine Hepburn film Stage Door for the intensity of its characters. Like real humans, none of the women in the film are objectively good or bad people, but rather, inhibit a world of nuance. Deutch knows, too, that Erica is not perfect, “but being able to live with her and being really able to understand why she does what she does was really important to me,” she says. “Nothing Erica does in the movie is ever spontaneous.

Flower is out Friday.

Zoey Deutch paid a visit to ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ on March 27, 2018.

During the interview , Zoey was asked about her new tattoo, a portrait of her dog inked on her ankle, and the group wonders if it’s a bit much.

It is my dog. Can I ask a serious question? Is it awww or is it truly psycho that I got a portrait of my dog on a very exposed part of my body?,” Zoey questioned.

Her name is Mabel and she’s also named Daniel. I have two water bowls so she can decide if she wants to be Mabel or Daniel depending on the day,” Zoey continued.

The actress was clad in a Self-Portrait Resort 2018 ensemble.
