Looks like another match made in moviemaking heaven: Canadian actors Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill are engaged.
Baruchel, who has appeared in Million Dollar Baby
and Tropic Thunder
, popped the question over the holidays, reports ET Canada
. But the proposal wasn't exactly like the ones in the movies.
"I was going to give her a ring, and I wasn't sure," Baruchel, 28, says. "I wasn't ready in my heart to say what it was."
But this ring – a 180-year-old Victorian wedding band – wasn't just any ring.
"When I gave it to her, I just said, basically, 'S--- or get off the pot,' " he says. "I said, 'F--- it, will you marry me?' "
Pill, who's appeared in Milk
and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
, 25, said yes.
The two plan to wed in September 2012.
