Zooey Deschanel’s divorce has been finalised.

 

The ‘New Girl’ actress’ union with Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard has been officially dissolved, over a year after they officially separated on October 31, 2011.

 

Zooey- who was married to Ben for two years – filed divorce papers in Los Angeles Superior County Court on December 27, 2011, citing "irreconcilable differences" as her reason behind the split.

 

Just months prior to the announcement, Zooey – who is now dating screenwriter Jamie Linden - said she enjoyed being married because it "solidified" the couple's commitment to each other.

 

She explained: "You can't expect to make no effort. You still have to make the effort and be kind and understanding. It sort of just solidifies your commitment."

 

Meanwhile, Ben has previously admitted he was "awestruck" that Zooey even agreed to speak to him in the first place because she was so "beautiful."

 

He revealed: "I'd seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful. [When we were introduced] I was awestruck that she was even talking to me!"

Ben Affleck thinks he has married above him.

 

The 'Argo' star still can't believe he has beautiful wife Jennifer Garner on his arm and says the secret to a successful marriage is choosing someone who is out of your league.

 

He said: "There are two things for a marriage to be good. One is to work hard on it. The other one is to marry above you. And I succeeded at both of those."

 

The actor-and-director admits his wife is "cool" with his hectic schedule and says he appreciates how she stays up late waiting for him to come to bed so they can brainstorm ideas about whatever new film he's working on.

 

He explained: "My wife is very cool. She knows that directing is consuming in that way. She's just happy I come home. Usually, I come home after the kids are in bed anyway. We like to chat for a little bit and l'll talk about the movie and what I'm doing, what I'm thinking or whatever. She's a good sounding board."

 

The Hollywood couple - who have children Violet, seven, Seraphina, three, and nine-month-old Samuel together - have had to adjust their lifestyles to cater for their expanding family, and Ben admits Jennifer has sacrificed her love of travel for the sake of their kids. He said: "My wife would just love to travel, but having three children in a row has meant that I travel more than she does. She wants to travel so much."

Ashley Roberts is ready to love again.

 

The former Pussycat Dolls singer has been largely single for around three years, and though she has been on a few dates, she is only just ready to settle down.

 

She said: "I've dated here and there, but now I finally feel ready to be in a committed relationship. I won't go out searching for it, though.

 

"I'm focusing on myself and my career, but I'm confident that when the time is right, the right guy will come in."

 

Ashley thinks British men have "sexy" accents and she is particularly keen to find someone with a sense of humour to match hers.

 

She added in an interview with Britain's Hello! magazine: "I love the British accent. It's so sexy. "I don't mind what industry my next boyfriend is involved in - love knows no boundaries. But he'd need to be confident, not cocky - there is a difference. "I'm a bit of a goofball - I enjoyed joking around and being silly - so a man who can make me laugh is a serious contender. I'm attracted to men who have a zest for life and what they do."
