Zooey Deschanel & Jacob Pechenik Split After 4 Years of Marriage

Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik are going their separate ways.

The 39-year-old actress and the 47-year-old film producer have split after over four years of marriage, a rep for the couple confirmed in a statement to Just Jared on Friday (September 6).

“After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners. We remain committed to our business, our values, and most of all, our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time,” the couple said.

The two first got engaged back in January of 2015, and got married in June later that year. They have two children together: Elsie, 4, and Charlie, 2.
