Does Zooey Deschanel have a new guy in her life?!

The Emmy-nominated actress was recently spotted getting cozy at lunch with Jacob Pechenik, one of the producers of her next film, Rock the Kasbah.

An eyewitness tells us that the two grabbed a bite to eat at Café Aroma in Studio City and were "definitely acting like a couple."

Of course, the duo could be just close pals after working on their film project together, but our source says they Pechenik was "feeding her blueberries and they were holding hands across the table."

Sounds pretty friendly to us!

"She was smiling and laughing at the things he was saying" and "when they got up to leave, he put his arm around her and they walked out together."

The New Girl actress is extremely private about her relationships and most recently addressed her love life in InStyle's August 2014 issue.

"You have to be careful what you reveal," she explained to the magazine. "You invite people in and can't kick them out."

Deschanel was most recently linked to screenwriter Jamie Linden, who she began dating shortly after her divorce to singer Ben Gibbard was finalized.

She split from the Death Cab for Cutie musician back in 2011, after the two had been married for a little over two years.

The two tied the knot in September 2009 and was the first marriage for both.
