New Girl Zooey’s new man
Zooey Deschanel is supposedly dating producer Jacob Pechenik.
The New Girl actress was seen on a lunch date with her reported new man in Studio City, California, earlier this week.
According to sources, Zooey and Jacob were “definitely acting like a couple” as they enjoyed a meal together at Café Aroma.
“Jacob was feeding Zooey blueberries and they were holding hands across the table,” a source told E! News.
"She was smiling and laughing at the things he was saying and when they got up to leave, he put his arm around her and they walked out together."
Pictures of the couple outside the restaurant show Zooey with her arms around Jacob as they shared a tender embrace.
They are believed to have met while working on her upcoming film Rock the Kasbah, which he is producing.
Zooey does her best to maintain secrecy about her personal life and relationships, and said in a recent interview that she learned the hard way not to disclose too much.
“You have to be careful what you reveal," she told InStyle magazine. “You invite people in and can't kick them out."
Zooey and former husband Ben Gibbard, of the band Death Cab for Cutie, announced their separation in 2011 after two years of marriage.
She was later romantically linked to screenwriter Jamie Linden.
Zooey has enjoyed something of a career revival thanks to her role as the eccentric Jess on hit television series New Girl.
Her upcoming film Rock the Kasbah also stars Bruce Willis and Kate Hudson.
