While Golden Globe nominee Zooey Deschanel's career has hit a high note, her personal life is a bit more bittersweet.
The New Girl actress, 31, filed for divorce on Dec. 27 from Death Cab for Cutie front man Ben Gibbard, 35, according to court documents.
The papers list their date of separation as Oct. 31 – Halloween – and cite irreconcilable differences.

The "amicable ... mutual" marital split of The New Girl star Zooey Deschanel and musician Ben Gibbard, announced Tuesday, brings to an end a relationship that began when their manager first introduced them.
"I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me," Gibbard, 35, recalling that initial meeting, said for a September New York magazine cover story on his wife (since 2009, after their 10-month engagement).
"I'd seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful," said the Death Cab for Cutie lead singer, 35.
