The Thing and the Invisible Woman, both of the Fantastic Four film franchise, are getting hitched!
Jamie Bell, who played The Thing, and Kate Mara, who played the Invisible Woman, in the 2015 reboot film, are set to be married. This was according to actress’ representative who exclusively confirmed it to E! News on Friday.
The actors have been spotted several times in public events as well as spending time together several times before the announcement. Mara was spotted in New York City wearing a beautiful ring with a large gemstone on her ring finger. She was also seen wearing the same sparkling ring on a Twitter photo posted just this weekend.
The newly-engaged couple has sparked rumors in 2016 about their engagement after Mara was seen with a ring on her ring finger. When E! News asked Bell if they were engaged, he succinctly told the news correspondent, “No”, but the actress just chuckled. Such different reactions further fueled the rumors.
Bell, a 30-year old British actor making a name for himself in Hollywood, and bell met in 2014 on the Fantastic Four set. But it was not until May 2015 when they sparked dating rumors after they were seen holding hands at the Met Gala. They were making their way into a private party.
By September 2015, the pair was making serious PDA on a Malibu beach. In October 2015, they lit up a New York City street corner with their kisses.
Since then, they have attended several celebrity and fashion events together. These included the 2016 Met Gala, the H&M Womenswear Fall/Winter 2016/2017 show during Paris Fashion Week, and the premiere for Man Down, Mara’s latest movie, in November 2016.
This is Mara’s first marriage and the second for Bell. The actor was previously married to Evan Rachel Wood; they split in 2014 after less than two years of marriage and they share a son.
