ZOOEY Deschanel looks stunning as she carves out a career as a cover girl. The New Girl star posed for Cosmopolitan Magazine this month after wowing in a shoot for US magazine Glamour in February.

Wearing a tasteful black dress and boots, the 33-year-old beauty appeared far removed from on-screen character Jess. And as well as spending her time posing for photo shoots, the actress revealed she is on a mission to become a role model for other women.

Speaking about her Hello Giggles website, she said she has made it her aim to combat online trolls. She said: “I was so tired of every site having these comment sections that were pure toxic energy. I have a pretty thick skin about it. But if someone were to do that to one of our 13-year-old bloggers, I would kill them.”

Newly-single Deschanel - who finalised her divorce from hubby Ben Gibbard in December - also revealed the split has not dented her belief in true love. She said: “My parents have been married for 40 years and my grandparents were married for 70 years. I come from a long line of true loves.” –TS
