Zooey Deschnel admits it is not her 'ambition' to start a family like big sister Emily.
Zooey Deschanel admits it is not her ''ambition'' to have children.
The 'New Girl' star - whose big sister and 'Bones' actress Emily welcomed baby Henry with husband David Hornsby in September - says that while she loves her nephew, she has no plans to start a family of her own.
She said: ''That's never been my focus. My sister was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff.
''I like kids, and I like being around kids, but it was never an ambition - something, like, I need. I like working. That's what I like doing. I like to work.''
She said: ''Honestly, I'm just going through a divorce, so I don't really think [dating] is something I want to get into now. I don't have time to date. I literally don't have time.''
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old actress' growing fame means she has started finding it difficult to go about her day-to-day life.
In an interview with Marie Claire magazine, she explained: ''It's harder to do normal things. I think that if you haven't been to the grocery store in a really long time, it's really easy to get very out of touch.''
