It’s no surprise that when Jay Baruchel proposes, the moment would be awkward, hilarious, adorable and aggressively Canadian. The Apatow apprentice revealed to ET Canada—figures!—that he got engaged to girlfriend Alison Pill, a fellow Canuck, over Christmas. “I was going to give her a ring, and I wasn’t sure,” told the show. “I wasn’t ready in my heart to say what it was…When I gave it to her, I just said, basically, ‘S— or get off the pot.’ I said, ‘F— it, will you marry me?’” Whether he told Alison or himself to ‘s— or get off the pot,’ that story is completely awesome.
While not a star yet, Pill, 25, should be recognizable to anyone who saw her steal scenes as a lesbian campaign worker in Milk and as the grumpy drummer in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (she was also in Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen, LiLo fans!). Now if only they’d get out of Canada and show up on the red carpet together—we need some PDAs!
