Poor Zooey Deschanel… her new show is getting some pretty decent ratings and reviews, she has a new Christmas album out (which is faring less well …) and she seemed to be finally getting that mainstream success. But now she’s getting a divorce from her husband, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard. Us Weekly reports:
Just two years after tying the knot, Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard have separated, Deschanel’s rep confirms to Us Weekly. “It was mutual and amicable,” a source adds. “There was no third party involved.” The New Girl actress, 31, and Death Cab for Cutie frontman, 35, got married near Seattle, Wash. in late September 2009.
Sorry hipsters; pour a little out of your PBRs, and doff those stupid animal hood things that people seem to have a raging nerd boner for. But on the plus side, Zooey is back on the market! So if you don’t mind having to call a woman “adorkable” in bed once every three minutes (it’s part of her contract with Fox) then you may just have a shot in hell.
