‘New Gir’ Star Zooey Deschanel And Ben Gibbard Split


America’s most famous indie couple has called it quits. Just two years after getting hitched, Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard have separated. A rep for the couple confirmed the news yesterday.

“It was mutual and amicable,” a source told Us Weekly. “There was no third party involved.”

In Deschanel’s September cover story in New York magazine, Gibbard gushed about meeting and pursuing the star, who also fronts the band She and Him. “I’d seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful,” Gibbard explained.

When their mutual music manager finally introduced them three years ago, “I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me.”

Deschanel told iVillage that it was “definitely hard” being apart from her indie rocker guy when he was away on tour. “He’s really good at calling. He’s probably better than I am. He’s a very conscientious person.”

What surprised her most about marriage life? “You can’t expect to make no effort. You still have to make the effort and be kind and understanding. It sort of just solidifies your commitment.”

The New Girl actress, 31, and Death Cab for Cutie frontman, 35, got married near Seattle, Wash. in late September 2009.
