Know About Justin Long’s Proposal To Kate Bosworth
Kate Bosworth and Justin Long had been dating for quite some time when Long proposed. According to Bosworth, the proposal was “the most romantic and honest and loving proposal.” She said that it felt very organic and connected to something deeply personal that they were going through at that moment.
Long had planned something special around Bosworth’s 40th birthday, but as things changed drastically without any warning, the proposal happened differently. They were both in a therapy session when Bosworth asked Long what he needed, and he replied that he wanted to spend his life with her.
Long and Bosworth first met in 2020 while working on the film “Barbarian,” in which they both starred. The couple kept their relationship relatively private, but rumors of their engagement began to circulate in early 2023. Bosworth confirmed the news on an episode of Dax Shepard’s “Life is Short” podcast in April of that year.
