New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is dishing about a wardrobe malfunction that happened behind the scenes at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards.
Right before she was set to walk out on to the stage to present with The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons, Deschanel told E! News that she and her publicist had to go into overdrive mode to fix a slight problem with her Emmys ensemble, a Reem Acra gown.
Deschanel explained they "had to cut my bra off because it was showing. We just had to cut part of it. It was before I went on. It was after the red carpet."
However, she wasn’t the slightest bit frazzled about it. “I don't even care really because it's all fun,” she said. “This is just supposed to be for fun. If you're not having fun, what are you doing?"
Meanwhile, Deschanel was surely having fun with her new boyfriend, Jaime Linden, Us Magazine reports.
While the winner for her category was being announced, (Julia Louis-Dreyfus won for her category) Deschanel clutched on to screenwriter Linden.
The couple went public with their relationship in June at a Magic Mike after party. Deschanel was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie front man Ben Gibbard for two years before splitting in 2011.
