Did you explode from the cuteness or roll your eyes from the hipster overdose? I suspect it’s about 50/50. (Ha! I didn’t even mean that when it first came out!)

Those of you who loved (500) Days Of Summer are no doubt going into 2012 with high hopes of a Zooey Deschanel Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie life to real life romance after watching the video she posted of the two of them on Hello Giggles singing about New Year’s Eve. Here’s how Zooey explained it:

“I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years.  We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since.  When we did 500 Days of Summer 8 years later, we spent every lunch hour dancing to Marvin Gaye in the hair and make up trailer; we had loads of fun. I hope to do a thousand more movies with him because he’s simply the best. But in the meantime, we made a little New Year’s duet for all of you! The original by Nancy Wilson. ENJOY! Don’t forget to check out Joe’s website.”

I LOVE her voice.

A lot can happen over 12 years. And lasting love rarely begins at the beginning anyway. Rather, if you can stay friends through your 20s, and see each other through tragedy and divorce, I wonder if that doesn’t make you better suited to come together, finally, in your 30s. I’m not saying this is what’s happened; there’s no evidence of it either way. Thing is, they might even know it yet. Can that be a movie, or at least another YouTube, when they figure it out?
