A softer, gentler Alanis
« on: June 16, 2004, 11:11:00 am »
Alanis Morissette, Ryan Reynolds Engaged
 Jun 15, 4:23 PM EST
 
 The Associated Press
 
 Isn't it ironic? Alanis Morissette, who made her name with poignant, angry songs about wrecked relationships, is engaged.
 
 The 30-year-old singer says her boyfriend, actor Ryan Reynolds, has asked her to marry him, according to Us Weekly magazine. The couple hasn't set a date yet.
 
 Morissette and the star of the movie "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" started dating by e-mail two years ago.
 
 "I knew early on that he was someone I could spend the rest of my life with," she told the magazine for its June 28 issue.
 
 "I just feel like we're family and we're on this journey of evolving together. He's courageous, he'll talk about anything, he takes responsibility, he's just unbelievable."
 
 Reynolds, 27, flew to Ottawa to ask Morissette's parents for permission to propose to her ?? which the singer didn't know about. He also helped design her 2.5 carat emerald-cut platinum ring, and got down on one knee to give it to her.
 
 "We were at home," she said. "It was very simple, pure and sweet ?? and shocking!"
 
 Morissette, whose songs include "Ironic" and "You Oughta Know," has won several Grammys, including album of the year for 1995's "Jagged Little Pill."

 Biography
 
 Handsome comic actor Ryan Reynolds may be best known to television viewers for his role in the popular Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, though if it weren't for his close friend Chris Martin, Reynolds' star may have not risen quite as smoothly as it did. Born in October of 1976, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, to a food wholesaler father and a retail store saleswoman, Reynolds harbored an affection for acting from his early youth, and was undeterred after failing a drama class at the age of 12. Making his television debut two years later on the Nickelodeon show Fifteen, the aspiring youngster crossed the border and relocated to Florida for the taping of the show, moving back to Vancouver soon after production ceased in 1991. Turning up in numerous television series such as Sabrina the Teenage Witch and made-for-TV movies in the following years, Reynolds soon grew despondent that his career was not moving along as smoothly as he wished. Recognizing his friends' frustrations, friend and fellow actor Martin suggested that the two pick up and head for the Hollywood hills. Crashing in a cheap hotel and having his jeep stripped and rolled down a hill did little to raise Reynolds' spirits, though the determined actor carried on, landing his role on Two Guys in 1997. The only actor to read for the role of Berg, Reynolds won the favor of the producers and was soon on his way to success in the States. Following with roles in the teen horror-comedy Boltneck (1998) and later Dick (1999) and Finder's Fee (2000), Reynolds soon began assuming his position among the hot young actors of the early millennium, taking the lead in 2001 for Van Wilder. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
