Are Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger close to getting engaged? The 36-year-old actress and the 35-year-old Pacey have never seemed to feel any need to tie the knot, though they’ve been dating for seven years. But now the longtime couple is considering making it official, according to Us Weekly. Jackson is reportedly planning to propose this summer, and they would get married soon after.

“Josh and Diane are very close to getting engaged,” a source close to the couple said. “They decided they’re ready for the next step. They’re excited!”

Me too! They seem like an unusually normal celebrity couple. Not to sound like my mom, but it would be nice to see them make it permanent. They’re adorable and they’ve been together forever. After all, they don’t wanna wait for their lives to be over, right? (Sorry. “Dawson’s Creek” is a big deal.)

Jackson’s “Creek” costar Michelle Williams says she couldn’t compete with drag performers when it came to impersonating Marilyn Monroe.

“While I was making [“My Week With Marilyn”] I saw this drag performance of Marilyn on YouTube, and I had to shut it down within 10 seconds because I was like, ‘That motherf—er is better than me. That motherf—er! I will never match what he’s able to do.’ He was just recreating all of her famous numbers to a T,” she told Metro.
