Zooey Deschanel’s finances were put on blast back in 2012 when she divorced Death Cab for Cutie lead singer, Ben Gibbard, and her entire income and expense report became public knowledge. Given that information and Deschanel’s current endeavors compared to her average living expenses,
It was revealed through the 2012 court documents that Deschanel earns a whopping $95,000 per month for starring in the Fox show, New Girl. Given that there are nine months to a season, and four seasons will give a total of 36 months, Deschanel has earned approximately $3,420,000 from the show alone.
The finance report also detailed Deschanel’s monthly expenses, going so far as to detail how much she spends on eating out and how much she donates to charity ($500 and $1,500, respectively). All in all, Deschanel claimed to spend an average of $22,500 per month. Add that up for three years time, and Deschanel has roughly spent $810,000 since the report on her monthly living expenses. And considering she had over $1,000,000 in stocks and bonds back in 2012, that number has undoubtedly grown, only adding handsomely to the million she had in her bank account back then. Her personal property was valued at nearly $700,000 back in 2012, and has inevitably increased since.
After all is said and done, Deschanel as accrued a net worth of over $15 million since her divorce in 2012. Aside from New Girl, she has several other projects coming up in 2018, so be on the look out for her.
