(Newser) – Christina Ricci is engaged to co-star Owen Benjamin, People reports. She met the comedian on the set of their film All’s Faire in Love last year, and they’ve been dating publicly since October. The former child star has had her eye on settling down: In 2007 she told a UK mag, “I just want to be married, or just engaged. Basically, I just want a ring. And the tax break.”
