New Girl star Zooey Deschanel has split from screenwriter boyfriend Jamie Linden after two years. Deschanel recently discussed the possibility of having children, however, multiple US Weekly sources have confirmed that Deschanel and Linden, who contributed to the screenplays of We Are Marshall and Dear John, have called off their two-year relationship. Deschanel was recently seen snuggling up at Café Aroma in Studio City with Jacob Pechenik, who is one of the producers on her upcoming film, Rock the Kasbash. A spectator later revealed the duo was “definitely acting like a couple.” “She was smiling and laughing at the things he was saying,” a source told E! News. “When they got up to leave, he put his arm around her and they walked out together.” Rock the Kabash will be released this year, starring Bruce Willis (The Sixth Sense), Kate Hudson (Almost Famous), Bill Murray (Groundhog Day), Danny McBride (Your Highness), and Scott Caan (Hawaii Five-0).
