LOS ANGELES (AP) - Scarlett Johansson and her boyfriend, Ryan Reynolds, are engaged. The 23-year-old actress and the 31-year-old actor have not set a wedding date, Johansson's publicist, Marcel Pariseau, said Monday.
Johansson's recent credits include "The Other Boleyn Girl" and "The Nanny Diaries." Reynolds recently starred in "Definitely, Maybe." He was previously engaged to Alanis Morissette.
Scarlett Johansson, daughter of Danish-born architect Karsten Johansson and Melanie Sloan, a producer from the Bronx of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage, has accepted Ryan Reynolds's hand in marriage. The groom-to-be hails from Vancouver, Canada, the son of Tammy Reynolds, a salesperson and career student, and Jim Reynolds, a food wholesaler and former semi-professional boxer.
Ms. Johansson, 23, is a BAFTA-winning and four-time Golden Globe-nominated actress and singer, who first rose to prominence playing a severely traumatized teenage girl in The Horse Whisperer. She later went on to receive critical acclaim for her starring turns in movies like Ghost World, Lost in Translation, and the Woody Allen-helmed Match Point, the last of which would mark the start of a long personal and creative relationship with the legendary director. Most recently, Ms. Johansson has branched out into recording arts as well, releasing an album of Tom Waits songs entitled "Anywhere I Lay My Head." It features a duet with rock icon David Bowie.
The 31-year-old Mr. Reynolds, meanwhile, has earned his own share of success as a leading man of the screen, starring in movies as diverse as The In-Laws, Blade:Trinity, and The Amityville Horror. He is frequently seen shirtless, showing off an athletic physique.
Mr. Reynolds proposed to Ms. Johansson after approximately one year of courtship. While no date has yet been set, a representative for the couple has relayed that they are "both thrilled."
This will be the second engagement for each: Mr. Reynolds was previously engaged to Canadian recording star Alanis Morrissette, while Ms. Johansson announced to shocked reporters last January that she and Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama were also to be wed. Neither engagement produced a marriage.
