Her "quirky, innocent" thing is partly an act I think. She has sued somebody in the past for two million dollars:
I don't know full details and she might've been "justified" in some sense, but it does show that she isn't just the perfect, selfless "sweet girl" she tries to market/is marketed as.
Also, her choice for a husband was big musician Ben Gibbard, hardly someone who actually needs her love. After having looked this up, it turns out they divorced in November 2011 after 2 years of marriage, and perhaps more details of that divorce would reveal the real Zooey Deschanel.
There is no mention of any philanthropy on her wikipedia page either.

Isn't she in Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy as Trillian? Does she basically play herself in that role too? Trillian from the character description in the book doesn't seem exactly like Zooey.

Hmm. I know what you mean, and she does suit that character, and play it well. But I feel a bit cheated even calling her an actor if all she ever seems able to do is play herself. A bit like Hugh Grant in British romcoms
