Zooey Deschanel Refutes Russell Brand ‘flirty’ Text Claims, Zooey Deschanel has insisted her and Russell Brand have never sent flirty text messages to each other, The pair were linked last month when rumours spread that Brand, 36, fancied his chances with the US actress and was bombarding her with calls and flirty text messages to try and get a date.
But in a new interview, Zooey, who stars in the US sitcom New Girl, appeared desperate to want to put an end to the gossip surrounding her private life and insisted it had all been made up.
Speaking to The Guardian, she said: ‘That’s complete fabrication! I don’t even know him! I maybe met him once, in passing, four years ago. And he definitely doesn’t have my phone number!
‘That was a story made up by a single website. It’s crazy how that got picked up – I mean how does that even happen?’
The reports emerged just a month after Russell revealed his split from US pop star Katy Perry.

A source told the US OK! magazine: ‘Russell has had his eye on Zooey for a long time. And he’s been sending funny, flirty texts to see if they can get together.
‘He thinks she’s hysterically funny and cute, too. He loves her quirky sense of humor, and thinks they’d be great together both on-and off-screen. There’s a real spark there.’
The 32-year-old actress split from her husband Ben Gibbard in November after two years of marriage.
Deschanel met the Death Cab for Cutie singer Gibbard in 2008 and the pair were married in Seattle the following year.
