Dave Franco and Alison Brie are about to ditch their wedding plans – for something much simpler! The Hollywood pair got engaged just last year and have been very slow to plan anything for their big day, so much so that the fans thought that they might never actually get married.
But now the word is that they might forego the whole wedding shabang and just take off by themselves.
“We keep kinda paring it down—to the point we might elope,” Dave said to E! News at the premiere of Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. “Who knows?”
In February, Alison Brie said a very similar thing.
“I’m just postponing planning,” Alison Brie said according to E! Online. “It’s good. It’s easy to not plan.”
In fact, if you check out her Twitter page, you will see that her tagline is, “Always late…but worth the wait.”
Maybe she is throwing hints at her soon-to-be husband.
But that doesn’t mean that they are totally eschewing all traditional forms of tying the bonds. Dave Franco gave his fiancee the most beautiful engagement ring ever, designed by Irene Neuwirth, which she did not hesitate to show it off on red carpets events and movie premieres.
They also have been incredibly supportive of each other in their careers, now steadily appearing on red carpets together and saying amazing things about each other in interviews.
She lately made a post on her social media account to give a plug for the movie that her fiance is in.
Alison has also been killing in the TV circuit lately, appearing on the cover of magazines.
Dave has been a big help to that. He has been using his connections, aka his big brother James Franco, to get her gigs on movies that they are both starring in.
“Alison Brie, who is Dave Franco’s fiancee, is in negotiations to join the growing cast of New Line’s making-of movie about the 2003 drama The Room,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. “James Franco is directing the movie as well as starring in it with Dave and Seth Rogen. The film began shooting in Los Angeles this week.”
This is a great news for the couple as they get to minimize the amount of time they spend apart, working on different movie projects. This way, they get to actually sit down and think about what their wedding might look like.
They also have a complete and full blessing from James. According to People Magazine, James Franco gave some hints on the couple’s upcoming wedding. He said, “It’s going to be really romantic. They are so in love. They just love each other.”
When Dave and Alison aren’t together, they seem to have always each other on their minds. In an interview she did with People to promote her movie Sleeping with Other People, she said, “I have an incredible fiancé. He’s so wonderful. He’s just the sweetest man I know. And he’s so funny and incredible in every way.”
The Community actress didn’t stop there in praising her fiance.
“He makes me laugh so much. We had the best time shooting this movie together. It was just like a blast. I think I kind of thought that we would get along and then I was excited that we actually did. We have some friends in common so it felt like we should have met ages ago.”
Do you think Nerve actor and Sleeping with Other People actress will actually have a wedding? Or do you think this guise for an elopement is just a gimmick to throw the paparazzi’s scent off? Let me know in the comments below!
