Acclaimed actor Stanley Tucci has stunned fans by announcing he is engaged to marry his partner Felicity, the sister of British actress Emily Blunt. Tucci and his bride-to-be, a London literary agent, were set up by Emily after the acting pair starred together in The Devil Wears Prada, according to US Weekly Magazine.
The actor, who recently starred in drama Margin Call, has been making frequent visits to London to be with Felicity. It will be the second marriage for Tucci, who sadly lost his first wife Kate to cancer in April 2009 having had three children together. A source said, "Stanley is very happy with her.Emily loved Stanley on the set of Devil, and just thought they would hit it off, so she set them up". The couple stepped out together on Tuesday evening (1st November 2011) for the after party of the movie Rampart, held at the Mondrian Soho in downtown New York City, with Blunt showing off her diamond engagement ring. Stanley proudly introduced his bride-to-be to stars such as Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor and Grace Gummer, with one observer noting, "They looked completely content together".
The 50-year-old recently wrapped up filming the Coen Brothers penned comedy 'Gambit', about an art curator who enlists the services of a Texas steer roper to con a wealthy collector into buying a phony Monet painting. The movie, set for release in 2012, also stars Cameron Diaz and ALAN RICKMAN.
