It's Officially Over - Zooey Deschanel Files For Divorce from Ben Gibbard

Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard announced that they separated back in November, but TMZ is reporting that Zooey has now filed for divorce, and marked the official date of separation as October 31 aka Halloween. Spooky.

Zooey filed for divorce in LA on December 27, not exactly how you want to end the year, but what are you gonna do? I guess she took a cue from her celeb doppleganger Katy Perry and was like, "omigod, is this what I have to do to?" and then she looked into the mirror and Katy Perry looked back at her and was like "Yes, prettier version of me, you must also be divorced if I am too, because us celebrity look-a-likes gotta stick together!"

Anyways, Deschanel and her rocker husband Ben Gibbard (frontman for the band Death Cab for Cutie) were married in 2009 and blamed the split on the ever-popular "irreconcilable differences."

Now that Deschanel has filed for divorce, at least that frees her up to date Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Hey, I'm just trying to look on the bright side of things, also those two are obviously in love, have you see that New Years Eve song they put on youtube? It is so achingly cute, I can't handle it.

In the meantime, she's just focused on her film career and her starring role on "New Girl."

"Hopefully on my hiatus I'll be able to shoot a movie. That'd be great. If it doesn't happen it doesn't happen, but I think that ultimately that's the goal is to be able to balance both," Deschanel recently told the Associated Press.
