Actress/singer Zooey Deschanel has reportedly found love with producer Jacob Pechenik after meeting on the set of her new film Rock The Kasbah.

The New Girl star appears to have split from Dear John screenwriter Jamie Linden, who she began dating in the summer of 2012, after she was photographed getting close to Pechenik during a recent lunch date at Los Angeles' Cafe Aroma.

An eyewitness tells, "(They were) definitely acting like a couple. (Pechenik was) feeding her blueberries and they were holding hands across the table.

"She was smiling and laughing at the things he was saying... When they got up to leave, he put his arm around her and they walked out together."

The rumoured new couple was also snapped together during a break from filming Rock The Kasbah in California late last month (Jul14).

Deschanel was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard. They split in 2011 after two years of marriage.
