It’s been a year and a half since the New Girl hipster chic actress Zooey Deschanel announced her split from husband and Death Cab For Cutie musician Ben Gibbard. Now it looks like one of America’s most sought after women is off the market yet again.
According to sources, Deschanel has found new love with her boyfriend and screenwriter, Jamie Linden. The two were spotted hitting the Magic Mike after party on Sunday hand in hand. Linden, like his girlfriend Zooey, has experienced some success in Hollywood–penning scripts like 10 Years, Dear John, and We Are Marshall.
It looks like Jamie Linden might be the perfect match for the usually perky Zooey Deschanel. According to sources, “Jamie’s a really nice guy.” Another source adds that he might be a perfect match for Deschanel, 32, mostly because “He’s funny, and a little geeky…he’s into her!” According to onlookers at the party, Linden’s enthusiasm for Deschanel showed. The pair was seen holding hands, hooking their arms together, just all around inseparable, as they spoke with mutual friends. At the party Deschanel was said to be in a hyper “dance-y” mood.
Earlier in the year, when asked about her love life, Deschanel spoke with Marie Claire, opening up about her troubles of the heart, saying, “Honestly, I’m just going through a divorce, so I don’t really think [dating] is something I want to get into now. . . I don’t have time to date. I literally don’t have time.”
However, if you’re looking for a confirmation about Zooey’s new love, don’t hold your breath. Deschanel’s representative had the typical no comment response when asked about the relationship.
Do you think someone who isn’t in the public eye as much is a good match for Zooey Deschanel?
