Ginnifer Goodwin splits from her fiancé Joey Kern


It was just this past week that Ginnifer Goodwin’s co-interview with Kate Hudson came out in the new issue of Marie Claire. Ginnifer talked mostly about dieting and body image, but she also talked about her fiancé Joey Kern, saying that she “wants a life full of little Joeys” and that the only thing keeping her from getting pregnant right away was her desire to have a pretty wedding dress: “I’m only holding off until after my wedding for vanity purposes. I just want to be able to fit into whatever dress I pick out.” Well, sad news. Apparently, Ginnifer and Joey broke off their engagement “a few weeks ago.”

After a brief engagement, Something Borrowed’s Ginnifer Goodwin has split from Super Troopers actor Joey Kern, a source tells PEOPLE.

The former Big Love star, 32, and Kern, 34, “broke up a few weeks ago,” says the source, adding that the pair intend to remain friends.

The actors were engaged last December after they were set up by a mutual friend.

That’s sad. And considering that Ginnifer was still talking glowingly about Joey during magazine interviews just a few months ago, something must have happened, in my opinion. Something beyond the “we just grew apart” line. When they announced their engagement, I’ll admit that I found Joey a little bit… odd. He just looks like some kind of predator to me. He’s got serial killer eyes. Maybe he’s a nice guy and Ginnifer cheated on him, or maybe I should just mind my own business. But if I had to guess, I’d think that he did something and Ginnifer didn’t feel like putting up with it.



Over the weekend, after her split announcement came out, Ginnifer went to Disneyland with friends. That’s a weird place to go after a breakup, IMO.

    I still love her hair short. And it gives her a unique look. In the land of fake.

    It is nice to see a female in LA without the 10 pounds of hair extensions. Or a face full of fillers and botox.

    Geez dare I say, she looks naturally cute!

  2. lisa says:

    Well yet another break up the gossips and rags missed.

    maybe they should expand their thinking..They keep missing all the other celebrity gossip..(even the B,C and Dlisters)

  3. Kaboom says:

    He looks like he might enjoy a bit of crystal meth, imho.

  4. tripmom says:

    Why not go to Disneyland after a breakup? Sounds like the perfect way to get out, have some fun, and take your mind off your troubles. Good for her for moving on with her life.

  5. PrettyTarheel says:

    He looks like James Haven and Billy Bob Thornton had a DNA cross. Not the prettiest of men, but perhaps he was a decent guy.
    I like her quite a bit, and I love the black and red dress. I also think Disney is a reasonable place to go after a breakup-it’s a nice escape from reality for a while, and good that her crew went with her. We usually just drank a few bottles of wine, but that was cheap and convenient.

  6. heb says:

    I went home and read my Marie Claire again after reading this too. He probably cheated on her.

  7. Monie says:

    @ Kaboom: I agree. He looks like he takes a hit of that shiznit on the daily!

    She is pretty (even with the coffee mug-handle ears), very different from the manufactured Hollywood heffas out there. I swear there must be a starlet mold where they create those chicks. Only customization allowed is the size of their breast implants.

  8. the original bellaluna says:

    When will interviewees learn? Never EVER discuss a relationship in an interview. It seems like it almost always backfires.

    I love Disneyland. I’d go to Disneyland for any reason, any time. (Except Christmastime, because it’s a mass of people at Christmastime – my daughter used to dance in their Christmas parade.)

  9. brin says:

    I don’t know anything about him but at least they had the good sense to end it before getting married.

  10. kasper says:

    I hope she sleeps with a gun under her pillow. That dude looks like a serial killer.

  11. Isa says:

    I guess I’m the only one, but I hate her hair.

    Maybe, he just decided he didn’t want to marry her? I feel bad for couples when this happens but at least that’s one less divorce/annulment.

  12. KLO says:

    Maybe they just had always felt the pressure to make it work because they were set up by a friend. Maybe their relationship was just good theoretically, but not in reality. That’s my guess, at least.
    Ginnifer and her hair are gorgeous. :)

  13. DreamyK says:

    Not a fan of her hair, either. She looks elvish.

  14. pitd says:

    I agree with tripmom, I think Disney Land is the perfect place to go after a breakup! Think about it, there’s so much going on, it would be hard to feel sad. And -AND You’d get to play in the princess castle. Sucks that I’m halfway across the world. I have to deal with my breakups by getting so drunk, I hallucinate that I’m at Disney Land. *sigh*

  15. zesty says:

    She looks like she’s wearing a giant toupee in the first photos. Not liking the hairdo–she looks like a wee little elf. With a giant toupee. Standing next to a very creepy looking man.

  16. kayls says:

    Why, oh why, did she cut her hair like that?? She looks like a hip teenage boy. :(

  17. carrie says:

    he doesn’t look at ease with her on the red carpets:i guess he was tired to hear her moaning about her weight and her career in Hollywood

  18. HotPockets says:

    I like the hair only when it is slicked back, other than that, it looks like some hipster, emo kid haircut.

    He seems creepy to me, too, but I don’t know him and I am only going off of the fact he has those vacant, dazed psycho eyes.

  19. LunaT says:

    I didn’t think he looked creepy. Just doesn’t look comfortable. And like he smokes cigarettes too much.

    My thing w/her hair—to me, it’s like she’s trying hard to look artsy and edgy. “Look at me. I’ve got a funky haircut. And I don’t smile often in photos. It’s all because I’m so moody and creative.”

  20. serena says:

    What’s wrong with his eyebrows?

  21. Lisa Turtle says:

    I love her casual styled pixie with the big Hepburn-esque sunglasses in that last photograph. I would call that a pretty chic grownup “Montenegro Style” (c) Shiloh Jolie-Pitt 2010.


  22. Kool-Aid Addict says:

    Joey Kerns is actually a really handsome man. Those are unflattering photos of him. I get embarrassed when women (and let’s be honest, it’s always women that gush about being engaged) talk about getting preggers and such and then a month later things don’t work out. I’m sure it sucks, but maybe he woke up and realized he would be marrying that.

  23. Wrangler says:

    Put a pitchfork in front and you got some American Gothic going on up there.

  24. Bubbling says:

    I seriously get depressed when I hear about brake ups, I could know the couple or not. She was talking about little Joeys and in a matter of months they will be strangers. Anyway I hate her hair it’s making her ugly. I agree with the first poster, nice to see someone without extensions but those ears!

  25. ZenB!tch says:

    @Isa I love Ginnifer but I hate her hair too. I hate Carey Mulligan’s hair. I hate Emma Watson’s hair. I don’t like hair that short.

    When were those interviews done? There may be a gap in between.

    I agree with everyone else who says he is creepy looking. I think he has an air of the Governator in him (as well as Cillian Murphy and BBT). Who is he anyway? Is he in the biz or out side of the biz. I’m curious where she found him so I won’t go there.

  26. kasper says:

    Am I wrong to dislike her because she doesn’t know how to spell her own name? I mean, even Jenny from the block knows better and she’s a borderline village idiot.

  27. LunaT says:

    Wasn’t she engaged to the guy Katie Holmes was engaged to?

  28. Rubber Ducky says:

    What the hell is that thing on her head? I take it she realized he’s gay, then.

  29. Isa says:

    Awww I like Emma Watson’s hair!
    I know everyone loves Carey but I feel like she’s just a budget Michelle Williams.
    As for her hair, I feel the same about it as LunaT. That she’s trying too hard to be edgy.

  30. Chris says:

    Never heard of them.

  31. Relli says:

    He cheated. End of story.

  32. CeeCee says:

    I love that her ears are a little big but she still has the guts to cut her hair short. She totally pulls it off with her super cute face. I’m inspired by that!

  33. Renee says:

    I love that he’s known for a movie in which his character is referred to as “College Boy 2,” haha!

  34. coral says:

    I like her hair. She sorta disappeared into the masses of starlets before, and now she stands out. She doesn’t have the most natural face for that haircut, like a halle berry, but I like that she plays with the style and isn’t uptight about looking like a beauty queen. Kudos to her for that.

  35. She totally pulls it off with her super cute face. I’m inspired by that!

  36. really says:

    he could not handle all that southern belle!
