Zooey and Gordon, who starred together in 500 Days of Summer, released a cute NYE song this week. But is anyone else in full-fledged speculation mode about them? Or am I just crazy?
I mean… there’s no way these two aren’t holding hands and sharing chaste kisses over homemade cupcakes, is there? Zooey recently announced her divorce from Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard, and while the couple declared that “there was no third party involved,” the video sort of makes me wonder. But while I can speculate all I want, the video’s description from Zooey is sweetly vague:
I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years. We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since. When we did 500 Days of Summer 8 years later, we spent every lunch hour dancing to Marvin Gaye in the hair and make up trailer; we had loads of fun. I hope to do a thousand more movies with him because he’s simply the best. But in the meantime, we made a little New Year’s duet for all of you! [via YouTube]
In the end I suppose it doesn’t really matter, plus I’ve always been a defender of the “boys and girls can just be friends!” mentality. But when private, interesting celebrities have some some gossip fodder, I can’t help but be a bit curious, especially when it comes to seemingly-prefect Zooey.
Do you think Zooey and Joseph are just friends? Can guys and girls just be pals?
