Divorce gives rare look at celeb's finances

Hollywood stars are known for their spendthrift ways. Tinseltown is littered with celebrities who spent first and saved later (or not at all). Occasionally, though, somebody bucks the trend -- somebody like Zooey Deschanel.

Zooey Deschanel
The actress/singer recently split from her husband, Death Cab for Cutie lead singer Ben Gibbard. Deschanel's lawyer filed her financial information with the courts. And we have to say, Deschanel may be the most sensible celebrity ever. Credit card debt? Zero. Investments? Substantial. Charitable donations? Generous.

Here's a rough look at how the finances break out:

Salary from TV show "New Girl" -- $95,000 per month
Dining-out expenses -- $500 per month
Clothing expenses -- $2,000 per month
Laundry/cleaning expenses -- $600 per month
Cell phone and email expenses --- $300 per month
Charitable donations -- $1,500 per month
Credit card debt -- $0

OK, so she's not exactly living like a pauper. Anybody who spends $2,000 a month on clothes clearly isn't afraid to skip the sale rack. And how does one drop $600 per month on dry cleaning? But, on the whole, Deschanel is a pretty smart cookie, financially speaking. She has over $1.5 million in the bank, and about $1.6 million in stocks and other investments. She also owns property worth close to $700,000.

Sorry about the marriage, Zooey. But at least you're saving your cash. Remember when the divorce papers from Britney Spears leaked back in 2007? Monthly salary: $737,000. Amount saved per month: Zero.

People like her get wined & dined alot. One of the perks of the trade. They also get plenty of free items such as cell phones, perfume, clothes, cosmetics, purses etc.

This makes me want to stop watching TV altogether. That's ridiculously overpaid.
