Julia Stiles' eventful holiday weekend? Let's just call it "10 Things I Love About You." And in love, she is. The 34-year-old actress announced her engagement to boyfriend Preston J. Cook Monday, posting an Instagram photo of her sparkly solitaire-diamond ring with the caption, "Best Christmas Ever."
It was definitely a great Christmas, that's for sure. Stiles' new fiancé, Preston — formerly her camera assistant — is now doubling as her main squeeze. The lovebirds got engaged while vacationing at a Colombian villa on December 24th, according to E! Online, after meeting while Julia was filming the 2015 movie Go With Me.

The actress has a slew of movie roles coming up; she worked most recently on The Revenant, and is making a cameo next year in the latest installment of the Bourne franchise — as well as appearing with Al Pacino in Misconduct, which will be released next month.
Stiles' dating history has been linked to Joshua Jackson, Josh Hartnett, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and most recently, she was said to be dating 41-year-old actor David Harbour, who stars as Elliot in The Newsroom. Julia's new hubby-to-be has been in the picture since July, when Julia announced to the Guardian that they were an item. In the interview, she referenced the "best kiss of her life" as the one she received that morning, from Preston, breaking the news about their dating. After a short summer-to-fall love affair, the two are happily engaged — this being the first marriage for them both.
In the above Instagram, you can see the actress' beautiful gold engagement ring sitting pretty on her left hand, which is interlocked with her hubby-to-be's. Hopefully we'll get more peeks into their #engagedlife together soon.
