Zooey Deschanel finalizes divorce

"New Girl" star Zooey Deschanel is officially single.

The 32-year-old actress' divorce from indie rocker Ben Gibbard has been finalized, according to People magazine.

Deschanel filed for divorce last December, a month after Gibbard's rep told CNN that the couple had separated. Their breakup was reported as amicable and mutual.

People reports that the couple divorced on December 12, and that court documents cite "unhappy and irreconcilable differences" as the reason behind an "irremediable breakdown of their marriage." The documents add that there's "no possibility that counseling … or mediation could save the marriage."

Gibbard and Deschanel married near Seattle in 2009.

    I've kind of dug her since The New Guy (Yes, she sung in that one, too). I'm sad her marriage broke up, but I'm glad she's single.

    Never hook up with a chick named ZOOEY. It's bad news.

      Vegans are better than you. I know, it's difficult to accept. Just get back to your monster truck rallies and beating your wife.

    I used to have a huge crush on her before she got all popular but now I find her annoying. And I hate that she tries to sing in everything. She's a horrible singer except when she's singing the old classics from the 30's and 40's. Everything else is complete garbage and she sounds horrible. (Have you heard that cotton commercial?? OMG that's horrible!!I) I don't know who told her she can sing but she should hang up her vocal chords and call it quits.

      She sang wonderfully in that stupid movie ELF. I hated that movie but that was the one she sand beautifully in. However, it was an older song as you noted.

    My type. A little old, no, though still doable, with the lack of her personality out there in performers.

      Well, we know that she gave up on a marriage after only three years. Oh, and that she can't act her way out of a paper bag.

      I dont know whats funnier... Your argument is that somebody doesn't know anything about her, right? I am pretty sure you dont know her either. You are surprised that her marriage didnt work out? She is an actress, and the guy is a rock-n-roll sort. You know these people survive on shallowness and substance.

    Cute but with a narrow range of talent.

    He got out before her career tanks and she blames him for it.

    Good escape.

    Indie music, indie films, indie rocker ex-husband..... Better forget about the marriage thing for a while Miss Zooey and make as much indie cash as you can. At 32, big paydays in front of the camera are fast running out. Don't forget the pre-nup.

    She's like the weird artsy chick you pick up in a bar and go home with and she shows you her pet snake, "Nicodemus" and is into weird s3xual stuff (particularly pain and blood). Then she threatens suicide when you don't answer her 50 calls in a row. Then she texts you something like this:

    "Why aren't you answering? Why won't you call back?"

    "You're an a55hole."

    "I'm sorry, I didn't mean that. Call when you can."

    You can almost see down her blouse. She is a friendly girl. Her hair does look stupid though. Almost like a wig that isn't on straight. That's ok. I'll just keep trying to look down her shirt.
