Emily Deschanel chatted with ET about losing the baby weight and rumors of her show ending. The actress, who gave birth to her first child named Henry Hornsby in September 2011, tells Entertainment Tonight:
“My character was pregnant she’s the normal woman. She can take the time that it takes to lose the weight and I’m doing that myself. Yeah I haven’t lost all my weight yet hopefully I will eventually.”
The actress maintained a vegan diet throughout her pregnancy and has done so for 19 years. On being a new mom Deschanel says, “I love seeing his personality blossom.”
Emily says the rumors about her show not coming back are false. She says filming begins in July. “Our show was picked up months ago so it is coming back for the 8th season in September,” she revealed.

Emily Deschanel doesn’t just play an animal lover on Bones — in real life she’s devoted herself to a vegan lifestyle (and defends herself against criticism), speaks out against animal cruelty, and raises awareness about the realities of factory farming. On June 2nd, Mercy for Animals, an organization dedicated to preventing farmed animal cruelty through education and awareness, will honor Emily for her continued hard work as a high-profile animal advocate.
The Justice for All: A Night for Creatures Big & Small event will honor Emily for “her farmed animal advocacy leadership and accomplishments.” No doubt, making her personal animal rights mission an integral part of her character in Dr. Temperance Brennan is a large part of how she’s reached so many people with her message.
Last year, Emily was the official spokesperson for the Walk for Farm Animals, an annual event to raise funds and awareness about farm animal abuse. Given her continued advocacy efforts, it’s so deserved that Emily will be recognized for her work on animal rights. (Source)
With a three year difference between them, it’s understandable to think of sisters and actresses Emily Deschanel and Zooey Deschanel as very close. But on Jimmy Kimmel Live (Weeknights, 12 a.m. ET on ABC), Zooey spoke of a long-running trick that her big sister Emily played on her.
“She basically just used the plot of ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ to terrify me,” Zooey said. She went on to explain that Emily told her that she’d been replaced by an alien from Neptune. “the Neptunians had killed my real sister and replaced her with a facsimile who looked just like her, talked just like her, but when my parents weren’t in the room, made crazy faces at me.”
Emily apparently also tormented her by talking in a monotone voice like V.I.C.I. from Small Wonder. Zooey didn’t indicate how long Emily carried on the ruse, but it was clearly over an extended period of time, and it positively terrified the young Zooey.
“She would make me cry and then she would laugh,” Zooey said. Of course, Zooey preceded this story by saying that Emily “came on here and humiliated me in front of millions of people.”
Could this have been a bit of sisterly revenge, making her big sister look bad? If so, it should be interesting to hear what Emily has to say the next time she’s on Kimmel’s show.
Zooey Deschanel can be seen Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on New Girl, while Emily Deschanel stars in Bones, Mondays at 8 p.m. ET, both on Fox. (Source)
