Michael Vartan: Engaged to Lauren Skaar!

Michael Vartan is engaged to his girlfriend Lauren Skaar, his rep confirms to People.

The 41-year-old former Alias star proposed to Lauren, 29, two weeks ago in New York. The couple met last year in the parking lot of a Whole Foods supermarket in Los Angeles.

Michael dated his Alias co-star Jennifer Garner in 2003 before she wound up marrying Ben Affleck.

Lauren is a 2006 graduate of U.C. Santa Barbara, where she earned a B.A. in psychology. She currently works in real estate.

Congrats to the happy couple!

    I was just going to mention the 16 year age difference. Hmm.. I would like to find someone with a 16 year age difference…

    Yes it is a big age difference but compatability is more important than age, if they share the same values, future goals that’s what matters not age. I think they have as much a chance of making it work as anyone else. They make a nice couple, she’s pretty. Good luck to them.

    Wow, she is only 25. I feel badly saying but 25? They’ve been dating for a year and they are waiting another year to marry? Weird.

    wow! a 16 year age gap is fine when you are in your 30s and 40s but a 40-something with a 20-something is just wrong.

    Happy for him! He’s always said he wouldn’t get married but kudos to him!

    Eggy Says:

    LINDLEY: He never said he wouldn’t get married, he’s always said he wanted to get married. I want to be happy for them but man when I was 25 I thought 41 yr olds were gross!

    BeReal Says:

    Compatibility? Lets talk about that when he’s 55, retirement age and she hasn’t even hit 40 yet???

    Hmmm, you’ll see…Age does matter whether you like it or not…

    He will give false hope to countless men over 40 searching for a 25 year old. Just the way Satan wants it.

    Congratulations to Lauren and Michael. What an attractive couple they make.

    To those who have written negative comments -give them a break and let them enjoy this happy time. Imagine how hurtful it would be to hear people bagging out your relationship. Give Michael some credit.

    Why wouldn’t that gorgeous girl look smug – IMO she just bagged the most eligible bachelor in the world so she has earned the right to feel good.

    16 years is a longish age gap, but my husband and I have nearly an 11 years age gap and we have been together for nearly 14 years and married for 11 years. As Kierkegaard said “Love is not about two people looking at each other, but looking in the same direction”

    May they continue to look in that same direction and have a wonderful and long marriage.

    All the best to the happy couple.

    Michael Vartan wouldn’t be caught dead with a woman 16 years older. That blows your theory out of the water with your quote of “Love is not about two people looking at each other, but looking in the same direction”

    I am extremely happy for Michael and Lauren. I am glad he has not gone for an actress (most of them in hollywood are so shallow) but then I didn’t think he would. I always thought he deserved someone who was intelligent and pretty and this is what he has got. Age is irrelevant I know people who are extremely happy and they have 20 and 15 year age differences. All the best Michael (of course my heart is now broken but then I would never have had a chance).

    brightside Says:

    Oh, this relationship is doomed. 16 years age difference; well that might not seem so much of a problem at the beginning when love is fresh and rosy but try 6 years down the line when she wakes up in the morning wondering why she married the miserable old ****. It happens because because while age may seem irrelevant at first, it becomes one big issue later on.

    Star Says:

    This relationship is no more doomed than a relationship where the boyfriend is pressured to marry his girlfriend after dating her only 6 months because she is knocked up.
