Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard Call it Quits


Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and New Girl star Zooey Deschanel have split up after a two-year marriage. (We’re still trying to ignore news about that other breakup.) The separation comes not long after Deschanel’s cover story in New York Magazine where hubby repeatedly gushed over the She and Him singer and how amazing she was. “I’d seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful,” he expressed. The couple were introduced by their mutual music manager, and the experience floored the indie bandman. “I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me,” he shared. According to Deschanel, it was hard being apart from Gibbard on tour, but he was ” … really good at calling.” As one astute commenter on Rolling Stone’s website points out, there’s a silver lining in all this: “This means only one thing: the next DCfC album is going to be amazing.” Do you agree?
