There is nothing more exciting than budding, exciting love. More often than not, Hollywood over-glamorizes love or the appearance of it, setting up unrealistic expectations for all those watching. Other times, though, the love between two celebrities is so real, magnetic, and “aww!”-inspiring that you can’t help but gush with excitement for the couple.
That very thing happened when news broke in 2016 that 29-year-old American actress, Brie Larson, best known for her role in Avengers: Endgame and Room, and 39-year-old American musician and lead singer for Phantom Planet, Alex Greenwald, finally announced their engagement.
The couple had dated for several years before Greenwald officially popped the question. From the looks of things online, the two were a match made in Hollywood heaven. Larson’s personal Instagram account was littered with lovey-dovey images and quotes about her beau, showing just how genuine their relationship truly was.
While Larson has been one to keep quiet about her personal life, in a rare interview before the split, she couldn’t help but divulge her truest feelings about Greenwald. “Oh man, I mean, he’s the other half of the equation - how can you explain support? I mean, it goes beyond anything. He’s just my person, he’s my best friend.”
Sadly, fans of the couple were hit with the startling news that, after a three-year engagement, Larson and Greenwald have called it quits. According to sources: “They have taken a step back from their engagement for the time being, but they remain close.”
As of now, no news has been released as to the cause of the broken engagement. Keeping to their typical, low-key ways, they’ve yet to slip the details - and I don’t blame them one bit.
While we may never know the truth, we do hope that, however it may turn out in the end for the duo, we wish them a lifetime of happiness.
