Ricci breaks engagement with Owen BenjaminJune 5th, 2009 - 1:51 am ICT by GD
Just two months after their engagement with Owen Benjamin, Christina Ricci 29, has called it off. The “All’s Faire in Love” co- stars had only just celebrated their ‘we are together’ status in the month of March.
According to sources (E! News), both the actors have been extremely cordial to each other and fast friends even after the break up. The couple had began dating in 2008, during the shooting of the movie “All’s Faire in Love”.They had even gone on record to say how much affection they reserved for each other and how it all came about while shooting together for the movie. The couple had made their first in public appearance together in October 2008.
Things were smooth till last Sunday when the couple had celebrated Owen’s birthday. It was after that occasion that they got into a quarrel, which cast things in a different light for the two, according to reports in People magazine. They decided not to rush into things and head fastidiously but rather to sit back to evaluate every aspect before making a big commitment. The engagement was therefore called off. The two are on regular talking terms.
In recent years Christina Ricci has been a part of such acclaimed movies as “Monster” (where she starred in a supporting role) by Charlize Theron. “Speed Racer” saw her in a leading role. Other big movies in her career are “Sleepy Hollow”, “Now and Then”, “The Adam’s Family” and more. She has been nominated for an Emmy Award in her career too. Owen Benjamin is a comedian and actor.
As of now, representatives from both the actors are not commenting on the status of the couple’s engagement.
