English actress Felicity Jones and her longtime boyfriend, Charles Guard, are engaged! The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story leading lady (in which she played Jane Eyrso) and Guard, a British director, are making their relationship official after two years of dating, a source reveals to Us Weekly. Jones has kept their romance ultra private, even walking the red carpet solo at the annual Met Gala at the Metropolitan Musem of Art in New York City earlier this month.
Jones opened up about her view on love in December 2014. "I am definitely romantic and I love romantic stories — that's why I keep making romantic movies," the actress told The Telegraph. "It's funny how seeing a love story never gets boring because it's the dream isn't it? It's the dream to have a true connection with another human being."
Before dating Guard, Jones was in a long-term relationship with ex-boyfriend, Ed Fornieles, according to the NY Daily News. While that romance didn't work out, Jones is clearly very happy and in love with her new fiancé. We can't wait to hear more details about the upcoming celebration. Congratulations to these two on their engagement!
