What feels like just moments after Kim Kardashian split from Kris Humphries, Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard have followed suit with a separation of their own. Deschanel rep confirmed the decision to US Weekly, adding that it was “mutual and amicable” and that “there was no third party involved.”

The quirky 31-year-old actress broke geek hearts everywhere when she married Gibbard, the frontman for the indie band Death Cab for Cutie, in 2009. Gibbard, 35, gushed about Deschanel as recently as September’s New York Magazine cover story on her, recounting when they first met, and saying he was “awestruck” that she was even talking to him.

In addition to acting in ‘New Girl,’ Deschanel is one half of the indie pop band ‘She and Him.’

I (Faith Martin) was  sorry to hear the two are divorcing. Because divorce is ALWAYS hard no matter who you are or what the circumstance. But,  aside from that, I watched “The New Girl” last night and I found myself laughing my head off!  She’s an excellent actress that is captivating and fun to watch ! I’m sure I have to investigate the band “She and Him” just to see what that is like. And, I wish them both the best for their futures!
