TV is full of douche bags. (We're looking at you, Andy Bernard!) But Zooey Deschanel is taking a stand right here and now in an effort to get the message out that her character on Fox's The New Girl is anything but a douche.

The question came up when we chatted with her on the Fox TCA Winner's Walk carpet, and we only asked because in the episode, her male roommates have a "douche bag" jar. Did you say or do something douche-like? Put a dollar in the jar. We asked if Zooey's character, Jess, would ever have to use said jar, and her answer was...

A resounding hell no! "One thing Jess is not is douche bag-y," she laughs.

Man, we're using the word douche a lot in this article.

Anyway, Zooey also talked about one of the funniest/saddest scenes in the pilot, where she is serenaded by her new guy friends after being stood up. It's a hilarious moment, but Zooey felt anything but while filming it. "It's the saddest feeling to be left somewhere, and I really genuinely felt sad," she tells us.

Check out the full interview below with one of the most adorable human beings on the planet, and then head down to the comments to tell us which TV characters need to put a dollar in the "douche bag" jar.
