Zooey Deschanel Dishes on Dating: 'I'm Going Through a Divorce, I Don't Have Time'
With the first season of her show New Girl helmed as a huge hit, Zooey Deschanel is having a tremendous year professionally, and seems to be keeping her head in her work instead of her personal life.
The actress opened up to Marie Claire magazine about everything from her love life (or lack thereof) to her thoughts on having a family to being bullied as a child.
Earlier this year, Zooey, 32, split from husband Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, and she told the publication that she doesn't intend on dating anytime soon
"Honestly, I’m just going through a divorce, so I don’t really think that’s something I want to get into now. I don’t have time to date. I literally – don’t-have-time.”
With such a busy schedule, it's easy to understand how dating would be on the back burner, but does Zooey see any children in her future? “That’s never been my focus. My sister [Emily Deschanel] was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids – but it was never an ambition, something, like, I need…I like working. That’s what I like doing. I like to work.”
