It's only Monday and already this is quite a whirlwind week for celebrity engagements. This week it was announced that Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger were getting ready to walk down the aisle, but on the less expectant side of things, it was also revealed that Brie Larson and her fiance Alex Greenwald, have called it quits on their engagement. Some love blooms and some romances fall apart. It's the way of the world, the circular nature of romance.
Even though Brie Larson and musician Alex Greenwald are no longer expected to say "I do" to one another, the Academy Award-winning actress and musician are still reportedly "close," according to a source in the know who spoke with People about the celebrity couple. Rather than go forward with the engagement, they are taking a "step back," reportedly.
At this time, there is no reported reason for why Brie Larson and Alex Greenwald are no longer expected to get married. The official details are being kept close to the vest for the couple, and that's certainly understandable. Even when you are a famous celebrity, there are some things still kept private.
In any case, Brie Larson and Alex Greenwald were first engaged in May 2016, and they were dating for several years before they got engaged. Larson and Greenwald were together when Larson won Best Actress at the Oscars for her performance in Room in 2016, and they've remained together even as Larson's profile continues to grow and grow. It's unclear if Larson's constantly ballooning public profile played a part in the fractured engagement, but she will certainly be busy in 2019, what with her forthcoming commitments to Captain Marvel coming up.
Like many celebrities, Brie Larson and Alex Greenwald kept their relationship private, even going so far as to seemingly keep their careers and their private lives separate as much as possible.
On the bright side, Captain Marvel makes its way into theaters on March 8th. It won't be long before Brie Larson is doing promotional rounds for the most high-profile film of her rising career. She will also be appearing in Avengers: Endgame in the summer. And this news comes shortly after there were rumors that Netflix is picking up the star's directorial debut, Unicorn Store, which will likely come out once Larson is even more of a household name than she already is. It is clearly a very, very busy and active time for the actress, who will also soon be filming Charlie Kaufman's anticipated I'm Thinking of Ending Things. Maybe it will help her take her mind off of things.
