UPDATE (11:38pm): Full update on Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron’s secret engagement here. Also worth noting: Gossip Cop is calling BS on these reports, as is Just Jared.
Who knows, it could be both! What we do know is this: US Magazine and People are both reporting tonight that I Am Number Four co-stars Alex Pettyfer, 20, and Dianna Agron, 24, are engaged to be married. Perhaps coincidentally, we also know that there are fifteen precious days before their Sexy Aliens Are The New Sexy Vampires™ film opens on February 18.
While only time will tell if the young couple — who met just under a year ago on the set of I Am Number Four — will live happily ever after, we can safely assure you that you’re going to be reading both of their names a lot over the next few weeks. Agron’s hit television show, Glee, is expected to be watched by tens of millions of people on Sunday night thanks to some prime Super Bowl promotion (and this is her second big tabloid story in less than six months). Pettyfer’s star is equally hot; in addition to this film, he’s also starring in Beastly, a modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
So, what say you guys? Are these two soul mates or are they just doing their part to promote their new movie? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter over at @thefablife.
Update (11:28pm): Hollywood Life is now reporting that Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron have been secretly engaged for months. Their (anonymous) source tells them that “Alex and Dianna got engaged months ago. He got her a ring, but she doesn’t wear it. They wanted to keep it under wraps. It’s better for both of their careers if they’re hot and single, rather than taken.” If this is true, it lends a bit of credence to our theory that there is PR value to this story; why, if they have kept this secret for “months,” did the story suddenly break tonight, just over two weeks before their movie opens? #conspiracytheories
Update #2 (11:37pm): For whatever this is worth, Gossip Cop is reporting that Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron are NOT engaged.
