Looks like New Girl star Zooey Deschanel has a new guy.
The sitcom star was photographed locking lips with rumored boyfriend Jacob Pechenik on Saturday while going for a hike in Los Angeles. Perhaps the photograph changes the status of their relationship from rumored to a done deal.
The 34-year-old actress recently broke up with her former boyfriend of two years, Jamie Linden, and she is obviously not sitting at home pining away for her old flame.
News of the former couple’s breakup came earlier this month after several weeks of canoodling with the producer of her next film, Rock the Kasbah, at Café Aroma in Studio City, California.

They were “definitely acting like a couple,” an eyewitness told E! News. “She was smiling and laughing at the things he was saying” and “when they got up to leave, he put his arm around her and they walked out together.”

The pair looked like they were completely into each other during Saturday’s hike and a post-hike brunch at Sweetsalt Food Shop in Toluca Lake, where the two walked back to the car holding hands before they culminated their morning date with a passionate kiss.
Deschanel divorced Death Cab for Cutie vocalist Ben Gibbard in 2012 and began dating her screenwriter boyfriend, Linden, not long after.
Wonder if Pechenik will accompany the former Emmy nominee on the red carpet at tonight’s show?

Well, at least we know where the songstress will be seated tonight. She was warned by Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler on Twitter to refrain from kicking the back of his seat.
