What are you doing on New Year's Eve? Whatever it is, it's probably not as cool as hanging out with offscreen BFFs Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. The "(500) Days of Summer" stars teamed up and recorded a new duet for Zooey's website, HelloGiggles, and it's basically the most adorable thing we've seen all week.
The duo covered Nancy Wilson's classic "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" in a low-production video posted to YouTube. Ever since JGL joined ZD in She & Him's "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here" music video, we've been obsessing about their mutual exploits off screen as well as on. We've been crossing our fingers for them to team up again onthe big screen, but the closest we've gotten is their hilarious Cinemash of "Sid and Nancy."
As Zooey explains in her short blog post accompanying the video, she and Joe have been friends since they first met in 2000 while filming the movie "Manic." They went on to star in the 2009 rom-com "(500) Days of Summer," and have just generally been endearing to us all ever since.
"We bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone, and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since," Zooey wrote. "When we did '500 Days of Summer' eight years later, we spent every lunch hour dancing to Marvin Gaye in the hair and makeup trailer. We had loads of fun. I hope to do a thousand more movies with him, because he’s simply the best."
Can we consider that your New Year's resolution, Zooey? Because we certainly are willing to sign on to watching everything you two collaborate on in the future.
