As you may know by now, princess of commodified quirk Zooey Deschanel has just gotten around to filing for divorce from her estranged husband Ben Gibbard, which has somehow resulted in an account of her personal finances getting released to the public. They’re fairly boring, all things considered. Apparently, Deschanel makes $95,000/month and spends a fraction of that (~$22,000) living incredibly well; according to the document, she spends $1,000 on groceries and household supplies, $500 on eating out, $800 on utilities (turn out the damn lights!), $300 for “her various phones and email accounts” (isn’t email free?), $600 on laundry and cleaning and $2,000 on clothes.
Or does she? Maybe this balance sheet is but a smokescreen for what Zooey’s actually spending her money on: items fantastical and fine. Here’s where I think the money is actually going.
