ShareThis

When Zooey Deschanel split from her husband, Ben Gibbard, earlier this month, she inadvertently revealed the finances of a year in the life of a new starlet, whose big payday will come when her Fox contract for New Girl is renewed (since actors do first seasons more or less on spec).

Two divorce lawyers walk us through the checkbook of a surprisingly frugal star.
