Marisa Tomei, 48, got engaged to 36-year-old hottie Logan Marshall Green

Whenever I see Marisa Tomei on talk shows, she always seems like such a cool woman with a great attitude about life. After winning her Oscar for My Cousin Vinny, I think people expected her to never live up to that early success, but she stayed in New York, worked constantly on a variety of different projects, aged gracefully, got nominated for another Oscar and… I don’t know, she just seems to have a great life. Well, I didn’t even know she was dating the young hottie and Tom Hardy look-alike Logan Marshall Green, but they’ve been together for a while, and now he’s proposed! So Marisa is going to get married for the first time at the age of 48. Mazel tov!

She was waiting for that special someone. And now Marisa Tomei is set to walk down the aisle for the very first time after accepting her boyfriend’s proposal. The Wrestler star’s groom-to-be is actor Logan Marshall Green, star of the summer blockbuster Prometheus.

The Oscar winning star, 48, and Logan spent a festive holiday season together and that’s when the 36-year-old actor popped the question.

‘He popped the question over the holidays,’ a source told In Touch. ‘She is very happy about the engagement.’

The couple has been dating on and off since 2008 after meeting while working on a New York theater project together. Marisa has previously insisted she saw no real good reason to get married or have children.

‘I’m not that big a fan of marriage as an institution, and I don’t know why women need to have children to be seen as complete human beings,’ Marisa told Manhattan Magazine in 2009.

Obviously, she just couldn’t resist Logan’s proposal.

Yay! Should we talk about the age difference? I don’t really care about it in this case – they’re both old enough to know the score, you know? It doesn’t feel like anyone is being misled or inexperienced or anything. It doesn’t feel like Marisa is some prowling cougar either – my impression is that she probably never thought she’d get married because the institution wasn’t for her. She only changed her mind when she met her Forever Dong. Praise it!

UPDATE: Oh, so Marisa’s rep denied this! Still, I want it to be true.

    always liked her, good on her-he’s a hottie!!

    • Chatcat says:

      He is a nice looking guy and him and Fassy together in that one pic has now made my Friday!

      I don’t think there is a thing wrong with this relationship/age difference. They look like a content couple and they have been together for almost 5 years apparently. If I had any concerns it would be that she was so adamant NO MARRIAGE and now she is acquiescing…I hope it’s real feelings and not mid-life crisis talking. Other than that…congrats to both.

  2. T.C. says:

    Didn’t see this coming. Had no idea they were dating. See Hollywood you can keep your love life secret if you don’t want to whore it for the cameras. Congrats to them.

  3. yellowlala says:

    Good for her, luv her…she waited till the right one came along, everything changes then

  4. annabelle says:

    I love her! And he is a doll, good for them both.

  5. brin says:

    Love her and he’s hot! She doesn’t even look 48…go Marisa!!

  6. bagladey says:

    I too always liked her so congratulations to the couple.

  7. kaligula says:

    Congrats to both of them! Just as long as she keeps doing movies…. Wonderful actress.

  8. Ms Kay says:

    Wow he is pretty! He kinda looks like a Tom Hardy on them pics. They look good together.

    Congrats!!!

    And grizzly beard Fassbender… Hello there :3

  9. Elle says:

    Good for him, recognizing the hotness of Tomei! Aging naturally (I think) and she still looks better at 48 than many of the younger surgery faces we see these days. Also, she’s talented, so there’s that as well. Basically, I love her and I like him even more now.

  10. cs says:

    Marissa has never been on my radar but I have to admit she looks really good for her age. She could pass for her 30′s. Her fiance is Hawt.

  11. virginia5 says:

    he kinda looks like tom hardy.

  12. Samigirl says:

    Daddy is going to be devistated. He’s loved her since MCV.

    Also, damn he’s hot!

  13. Ann says:

    She looks so great! There’s no need to talk about the “age difference”, it’s minor compared to the father/child bride pairings we so often see.

  14. carrie says:

    Congrats! And he is Tom Hardy’s poor man

  15. Kat says:

    Really nice couple. And the age difference is not really visible – she doesn’t look much older than him. The best thing, though, about this pairing is that there’s still hope for ladies in their 40′s!

  16. keats says:

    But Logan Marshall Green isn’t quirky or bald!

  17. eileen says:

    Whoa he’s HOTTTT! Get your Marisa! Love her!

  18. andrea says:

    Very happy for both of them, they’ve been together a long time. I remember looking him up when I saw that she brought him to one of the awards shows a few years ago because (like a few others here commented) I thought he was Tom Hardy. The resemblance was much stronger back then when they were both playing soldier boy-type roles.

  19. Adrien says:

    Congrats to the couple. I feel sorry for Logan, he’ll always be known as the American Tom Hardy no matter how talented he is.

  20. fabgrrl says:

    She is lovely. Good for them.

  21. Tanah says:

    LOVED LOVED LOVED her in Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing and Charm School. She just has this whole aura of being a wonderful, likable person. Congratulations to them both!

  22. The Original Mia says:

    Surprised they are getting married. Thought they’d be one of those committed, but unmarried couples.

    Congratulations to them!

  23. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them!
    I’ve always liked her, and she looks great. I’d never guess she was 48!
    Age difference doesn’t bother me – once you’re in your 30s, 10-15 years doesn’t matter so much, IMO.

  24. Ranunculus says:

    I actually think she is hotter than him.

  25. Huh says:

    Oh, I love this! Marisa is amazing-looking – I’d never really guess an age difference. She’s a cool-seeming woman.

  26. MsAubra says:

    OOOH he cute! Get it “Maggie”

  27. Toot says:

    I think Logan is better looking than Tom Hardy, to me anyway.

    They’ve been together for a while and wish them the best.

  28. Amanda Garrett says:

    They make a HOT couple!

  29. Marty says:

    I hate to bring the party down but her rep told E! that this was just a rumor and not true. Sorry everyone! Who knows, it still could happen eventually.

  30. Jenna says:

    Uhm, no. I just don’t see the look-a-like to my Hardy. Maybe with the fuzz, but without it? Nope. No. Just…no.

    Oh, and congrats and all that jazz. :)

  31. sirsnarksalot says:

    Having seen these two in person years ago I can attest to how utterly stunning they both are. I never would guess her to be 48. And the classy way in which she handled being accosted by some crazy fan on the street left me really impressed. Love her.

  32. Maritza says:

    She is aging very gracefully. In this case their age difference is hardly noticeable. I don’t think she will get married, it’s obvious she doesn’t care to be married or have babies.

  33. bettyrose says:

    she’s gorgeous and seems really cool. I bet she has her pick of younger suitors.

  34. snappyfish says:

    so nice to see a 40-something woman in hollywoood who doesn’t look like she’s injected her face with every substance known to mankind. she looks pretty, healhty, and happy, and i agree she just seems like a nice person.

    yay!

  35. FassDaActor says:

    Alright now. Get it momma. I like her and she looks GREAT!

    And Kaiser, thank you for my bearded Fass fix. I want to feel that beard tickle my mid section ;-) Oh my baby.

  36. Shoegal says:

    This guy is hot & a really good actor. I have mainly seen him as a character actor playing parts on various shows (such as “Law & Order SVU”). However, his acting always makes an impression on me. Good for Marisa…whether they’re engaged or not.

  37. FassDaActor says:

    Saw Marisa at a Tricky concert in NYC years ago. She was mad cool.

  38. Samantha says:

    I can’t believe she’s 48! She looks amazing. So much better than her filler-injected counterparts.

  39. valleymiss says:

    TREY! Watch out, girl…he’ll try to attack you on the beach! (Sorry…that was the “OC” fangirl in me coming out. Anyone remember how he played Ryan’s criminal brother, and then he attacked Marissa Cooper at the beach? That show was *heroin* to me. Lol!)

    Glad I saw that Ms.Aubra upthread remembers Marisa’s first big role, as Maggie on “A Different World”! Lol She had red hair then, and she was one of the girls who lived in the dorms with Lisa Bonet when she left The Cosby Show and went to college. I’ve always loved Marisa. My favorite movie of hers was “Only You,” with Robery Downey Jr. The Rome travelporn in that movie is beautiful!

  40. Paloma says:

    Demi Moore will be after the twin brother.

  41. anti-icon says:

    CONGRATS! I am a firm believer in marriage, not the institution, but monogamy with the one you love!!!!!

    I hope it works out great for these two. Marisa does seem like a good person.

  42. Reece says:

    I see how you snuck Fassbender in there Kaiser. ;)

  43. Shiba says:

    Wasn’t she struggling with alcohol problems since winning her Oscar?

  44. Chelsea's handler says:

    Ha awesome. I just watched that Marisa Tomei episode on Seinfeld again yesterday.

  45. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Hmmmm……I always thought she was gay. Did anyone else think she was lez. too?? If this is true this is a big surprise to me.

  46. Julie says:

    He’s a hottie! All I thought when I read this was: YOU GO GIRL! Love Marisa Tomei – she is such a classy, cool actress.

  47. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Wow, I had no idea they were dating. Love her and the age difference is not a big deal. Both are well into the solid adult stage. They make a really great looking couple. Congrats to both.

  48. pg says:

    Congradulation’s, she looks awesome, wish her the best!

  49. A Fan says:

    Granted she is beautiful to begin with, but this is what happens when a woman ages gracefully (read: no slug lips, plastic face, cutlet cheeks)…they ooze attractiveness, confidence, and sexiness.

  50. Wicked says:

    PROTECT YOUR ASSETS, MARISSA! JUST SAYING…

  51. Carolyn says:

    Saw “Parental Guidance” recently with my daughter. Very distracted at how good Marisa looks. Still can’t act though. Hope the relationship lasts.

  52. Really? says:

    Dude is a hybrid of Tom Hardy and Eddie Cibrian…weeeeeird! But not bad either…

  53. muppet_barbershop says:

    Who cares whether they get married? What a hot couple.
