Zooey Deschanel: I'm too busy to date

Zooey Deschanel says that her career is keeping her too occupied to find love again.

The New Girl star split from her rocker husband Ben Gibbard last November after two years of marriage but maintains that she is not ready to find a new beau.

The quirky actress told the May issue of Marie Claire magazine that she is happy being single.

"Honestly, I'm just going through a divorce, so I don't really think that's something I want to get into now," she told the publication. "I don't have time to date. I literally - don't have time."

The 32-year-old starlet added that she is also not interested in becoming a mother any time soon.

"That's never been my focus," she shared. "My sister [Emily] was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids - but it was never an ambition. I like working. That's what I like doing."

Zooey has been vocal about being bullied as a child and says she still remembers it very vividly.

"I still have the same awareness when I was 12 and chubby and a girl was spitting in my face," she shared. "I can still remember when I was treated differently from the way I'm treated now."
