Zooey Deschanel says having babies not her ambition

April 10, 2012 - Washington

Zooey Deschanel has admitted that it is not her 'ambition' to start a family like elder sister Emily.

The 'New Girl' star, whose elder sister and 'Bones' actress Emily welcomed baby Henry with husband David Hornsby in September has said that while she loves her nephew, she has no plans to start a family of her own.

"That's never been my focus. My sister was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Marie Claire magazine.

"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," she said.

Having split with Death Cab for Cutie front man Ben Gibbard in November after just two years of marriage, Zooey also insists dating is off her agenda for now.

"Honestly, I'm just going through a divorce, so I don't really think [dating] is something I want to get into now. I don't have time to date. I literally don't have time," she said.

Meanwhile, the 32-year-old actress' growing fame means she has started finding it difficult to go about her day-to-day life.

"It's harder to do normal things. I think that if you haven't been to the grocery store in a really long time, it's really easy to get very out of touch," she added.
