Zooey Deschanel 'romancing screenwriter Jamie Linden'

June 26, 2012 - Washington

Zooey Deschanel has moved on from her failed marriage and has reportedly started dating 'Dear John' screenwriter Jamie Linden.

The New Girl star split from Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard in October (11) and she filed for divorce in December (11), citing "irreconcilable differences" for ending her two-year marriage.

But Deschanel's love life is now looking up as she stepped out with Linden for the first time on Sunday for attending a Hollywood afterparty for Channing Tatum and Matthew MCConaughey's new movie 'Magic Mike'.

"Jamie's a really nice guy. He's funny, and a little geeky... He's into her," a source told

While talking to Marie Claire magazine earlier in 2012, the actress admitted that she wasn't ready to step back into the dating game.

"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," she had said.
