It was proved by Selberg's in the 1940's that the typical values of the logarithm of the Riemann zeta function on the critical line is distributed like a complex Gaussian random variable. In this talk, I will present recent work with Emma Bailey that extends the Gaussian behavior for the real part to the large deviation regime. This gives a new proof of unconditional upper bounds of the $2k$-moments of zeta for $0\leq k\leq 2$, and lower bounds for $k>0$. I will also discuss the connections with random matrix theory and with the Moments Conjecture of Keating & Snaith.
