Zooey Deschanel Reveals The Secret Behind A Good 'New Girl' Makeout Scene (VIDEO)

Since "New Girl" made its debut in September 2011, fans have been waiting for Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) to get together and they finally got their wish. In January, they kissed, last week, they slept together and in this week's episode, they navigated (or tried to navigate) their newfound more-than-friends relationship.

So what's changed on set now that Nick and Jess have hooked up? "Makeup artists have to carry mints ... all the time," Deschanel admitted on "Live! With Kelly and Michael."

Hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan showed the actress that they keep Altoids on hand too. "In case you want to make out with us, we are ready," Ripa joked. "And I do," Deschanel replied.

Watch "Live! With Kelly and Michael" weekdays on ABC and find out what happens with Nick and Jess when the "New Girl" season finale airs Tuesday, May 14 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
