Zooey Deschanel files for divorce

Zooey Deschanel files for divorce

Sad news bears! HLN confirms that “New Girl” actress Zooey Deschanel has filed for divorce from “Death Cab for Cutie” front man Ben Gibbard after two years of marriage. And just two days after Christmas, too!

The actress sought to make the split official on December 27, 2011, although the couple announced their separation back in November. Could that be why she sang about wanting to spend her New Year’s with “500 Days of Summer” co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a recent vid that went viral?

The two haven’t released any statements, but Deschanel’s rep tells USA Today that she (like many other Hollywood couples) cited irreconcilable differences as the  reason for divorce. In an interview with People Magazine, Deschanel only said “We're friendly. It's all fine."

It does seem like the former duo might be occupied enough with work to keep their minds off their personal lives. Deschanel is currently nominated for a few awards, including a Golden Globe, for her role in the Fox Comedy, “New Girl.” And Gibbard’s still promoting his band’s 2011 album, “Codes and Keys.”
