THE FLY star Jeff Goldblum is celebrating after becoming engaged to his actress girlfriend CATHERINE WREFORD.

The 51-year-old actor and Canadian Wreford, 23, embarked on a romance last year (03), and quickly decided they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.

Goldblum says, " We met about seven months ago and she just got nominated in the last couple of days for a HELEN HAYES AWARD as one of the best five actresses on stage this last year."

But while they plan to share many years together, Goldblum admits he doesn't share the former hockey player's passion for the sport.

He adds, "I've never gotten into hockey. When I see them fighting as part of the show it doesn't make my stomach feel good. I don't like it. Maybe somebody needs to explain it to me. But I know in other sports they break it up right away. I know it's a long argument, but I don't get it and it turns me off."
