Catch up on holiday hitches
Witherspoon engaged to agent: Reese Witherspoon hasn’t had much luck in her failed relationships with actors (see Phillippe, Ryan, and Gyllenhaal, Jake). Maybe she’ll do better with a man who works behind the scenes in Hollywood. Witherspoon and Hollywood agent Jim Toth are engaged, according to her publicist. “The couple is extremely happy,” the rep told E! News. There’s no word on a wedding date for the Oscar winner. The two have been dating since January, mostly keeping out of the spotlight.
Lily Allen engaged: British pop singer Lily Allen deserves something nice to happen to her, after suffering miscarriages in 2008 and again just two months ago. So we’re happy to report that she’s engaged to her boyfriend of a year and a half, Sam Cooper. The Sun and Daily Mail both reported that Cooper popped the question during a Christmas vacation in Bali, with one source telling the Mail that Allen “burst into tears” after the proposal.
‘Thor’ a married man: You don’t know who Chris Hemsworth is now, so you may not care that he married his longtime girlfriend, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, over the Christmas holiday. But you’ll know Hemsworth’s name soon enough, as he’s playing Thor in the upcoming superhero movies Thor and The Avengers. No other details about the wedding were available, according to UPI. Let’s just hope Hemsworth insisted on a prenup for that hammer.
