Margaret Qualley And Jack Antonoff Are Engaged
Big exciting news for fans of actors with famous parents, and guys who look like a Gen Z Seymour from Little Shop of Horrors. There’s a new celebrity couple engagement in town, and a source is telling People magazine that the future union is between 27-year-old Margaret Qualley (aka Andie MacDowell’s kid) and 38-year-old musician Jack Antonoff.
If you feel like you are having an aggressive case of déjà-vu right now, I’m here to tell you that it would be fitting, considering Andie’s mom was in Groundhog Day, but also that your brain is playing tricks on you. Because this couple isn’t that other famous daughter of a famous actress who got engaged to a decade older famous brown-haired Jewish musician-slash-super producer (that would be Meryl’s kid and Mark Ronson, who are now married). Margaret and Jack were first seen together last summer, and now they’re engaged. This was made evident by an engagement-looking ring that Margaret was wearing on her left hand during a trip to the Cannes Film Festival last week. via People magazine:
The couple is engaged, a source confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. Reps for each have not commented.
The actress had fans wondering if the Bleachers musician may have proposed when she was spotted wearing a diamond sparkler at the Cannes Film Festival last Wednesday. Qualley was in France for the premiere of her latest film, Stars at Noon, in which she stars alongside Joe Alwyn. The movie tied for the Grand Prix at the festival.
Margaret Qualley has notably dated both Pete Davidson and Shia LaBeouf. And Jack Antonoff you may know from dating Lena Dunham, or those cheating rumors ft. Lorde, or working with Taylor Swift. And as People pointed out, Margaret just starred in a movie with Taylor’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn. So that wedding RSVP list is going to be packed with stars! And based on that list of exes, it also seems like an increased chance of wedding day ceremony crasher messiness. But currently, Pete, Lena, and Shia are all in committed relationships. So the only true “I object!!! I thought I was the only one for you??” might come from the person who makes Jack’s goofy glasses.
Not long after People revealed their rumored engagement, Margaret pretty much confirmed the news herself, by throwing up a gallery of pictures featuring herself, Jack, and that diamond, along with a comment about being in love.
Frankly, I’m shocked that Margaret would announce her engagement in such a, dare I say, basic way. That’s some classic Sears Portrait Studio engagement shoot posting. The standard arms-over-shoulders thing while standing out in nature is so old and overdone, it might be considered public domain at this point. And the ring is in full display, with not a shred of vague mystery about what it all means. I was under the impression that Margaret was an artsy weirdo! Maybe this isn’t what it seems. Yeah, that’s it – it’s all an ironic commentary on the wedding industrial complex. I bet that standard diamond ring will be replaced with a piece of black electrical tape just as soon as I’m done typing this sentence.
