Los Angeles - Zooey Deschanel has no desire to be "super skinny".

The New Girl actress, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, insists she won't be flaunting a trim figure in a bikini shortly after giving birth.

The 35-year-old star said: "Haven't we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person. I've always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny."

The brunette beauty enjoys taking care of her body, but refuses to be pressured to look like a model.

She told the June issue of Cosmopolitan magazine: "I like a healthy look. I don't buy into that skinny-is-better mentality. I just eat healthy and work out and don't worry about my weight too much. Actresses aren't models, and most of them never wanted to be."

Zooey is still "very focused" on her career, but claims she doesn't care "what people think of it".

She said: "I work all the time, but I do what I love and I don't care what people think of it. You don't become successful by trying to be 'a success.' You become successful by doing things that give you pleasure. That's a hallmark of mine."
