While attending the black-tie BAFTA gala on Saturday with the royal honeymooners, Zooey Deschanel reportedly turned on her 500 Days of Summer locale, suggesting to USA Today that the surroundings of the Belasco Theatre left much to be desired.

Said Deschanel, "I just don't want them to see the worst of L.A." Oooh. The L.A. Times had an opinion-based field day with this one.

UPDATE: Deschanel published a post on her own site today countering the L.A. Times piece.
