Zooey Deschanel still believes in true love.
Although the 'New Girl' actress split from Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard in 2011 before divorcing a year later, she insists it hasn't put her off the idea of finding lasting love.
She told Cosmopolitan Australia: ''Absolutely! I truly believe in it. I'm not saying it's not ephemeral...I'm saying true love may be out of the box. My parents have been married for 40 years and my grandparents were hitched for 70 years. I come from a long line of true loves. I'd be likely to go for somebody who is like me. I do like creative people, so whatever that means. Yeah, authentic and creative.''
Zooey - who is now dating screenwriter Jamie Linden - also admitted she was insecure growing up but has now come to be happy with herself and wants to help others.
She added: ''People really teased me. It was bad. Nothing could be as hard as middle school. There were insecurities that I think I would've worked through a lot faster if I'd had certain tools and could have connected with certain people earlier.
''We started up [the website] Hello Giggles for fun. But now I feel as though I'm on a mission to make it a thing that helps other women. If there had been a place like that for me when I was 13, I would have felt so much less alone.''
