Looks like life is imitating art for New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel. The actress who has been dating film writer Jamie Linden has decided to call it quits.
That said, don’t think that Deschanel is crying over the end of her two year relationship. It looks like this couple might have been over for a while and the press is just wisening up to it now. The reason? The New Girl star has been spotted with a new man. It looks like Zooey is actually getting on just fine. According to Us Weekly, the sitcom star has been spotted with a new guy on her arm on the set of her new film Rock the Kasbah.
According to E! news the new man in question may just be her new boyfriend, Jacob Pechenik. The couple made their debut as they stepped out a second time for a lunch date. Pechenik is currently the producer on her new film.
So what went wrong with Deschanel and screenwriter boyfriend of two years Jamie Linden? No one really knows just yet and it’s unlikely that Zooey will come forward and speak about the end of her relationship. According to a source Linden was “a really nice guy” who was “funny, and a little geeky.. he’s really into her!” As we know sometimes you can’t keep a relationship alive on those factors alone.
This split is Zooey’s first real break up after her split from her now ex-husband Death Cab for Cutie lead vocalist Ben Gibbard.
Despite that initial break up with Gibbard back in 2013 the actress said that she still believes in true love. Speaking with Cosmopolitan UK the actress said in regards to true love.
“[True love] that lasts forever… yes, I do believe in it. My parents have been married for 40 years and my grandparents were married for 70 years. I come from a long line of true loves.”
Perhaps this is a hint in what she’s looking for. Of her perfect guy, Zooey said:
“I’d be more likely to go for somebody who is like me. Well I like creative people, so whatever that means…Yeah, authentic and creative.”
Looks like she’s been on the right path but just hasn’t found Mr. right yet.
As for her rumored new boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, a source told E! that the two were “definitely acting like a couple” when they hit Studio City for their lunch date. Guess only time will tell before we have more photograph evidence.
