Clairedaneshughdancy Former "My So-Called Life" TV star Claire Danes and British actor Hugh Dancy are engaged and getting married, People reports.

Yawn. Does anyone care?

People notes that Danes, 29, and Dancy, 33, met while filming the romantic drama "Evening" in Newport, R.I. They have dated for more than a year.

Gosh, a whole year? Has it been that long?

And despite what you may think, it’s only a happy coincidence that the cute couple announced their intent to marry — and thus make headlines — a few days before Dancy’s new romantic comedy "Confessions of a Shopaholic" opens.

"Shopaholic" officially opens on Feb. 13, the day before the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day.

Hmmm. You don’t think they timed this, do ya?


Hey, if she hyphenates, she’ll be Claire Danes-Dancy.

Next up for Danes? She’ll star in "Me and Orson Welles" with Ben Chaplin and Zac Efron.

Zac Efron? Now that’s exciting news!
