Congratulations are in order for Marvel star Tom Hiddleston and actress Zawe Ashton, who are officially engaged.
After sparking engagement speculations following their appearance at the 2022 British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) on Sunday, CNN revealed on Friday that the British couple is planning to walk down the aisle.
Ashton accentuated her draped blush pink gown with an oval diamond ring on her wedding finger, while Hiddleston looked dashing in a black tuxedo.
The announcement of their engagement comes three years after Hiddleston and Ashton acted opposite each other in Harold Pinter’s play “Betrayal” on Broadway, in which they played a married couple.
Hiddleston, best known for playing antihero Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, also showed off his acting chops in films including “Crimson Peak” and “Kong: Skull Island.”
In addition to her stage work, Ashton’s acting credits include the films “Velvet Buzzsaw” and “Nocturnal Animals.” She will star in the upcoming “Captain Marvel” sequel “The Marvels,” set to premiere next year.
Hiddleston, who notably dated pop star Taylor Swift, has previously stated that he prefers to keep his personal life apart from his public persona, telling the Telegraph newspaper in the United Kingdom in 2017: “Everyone is entitled to a private life.”
He added at the time: “I love what I do, and I dedicate myself with an absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind, I don’t conflict the two. My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate.”
