Captain Marvel star Brie Larson and fiance Alex Greenwald have reportedly called off their engagement of almost three years. “They have taken a step back from their engagement for the time being but they remain close,” a source told People, who reported the split first. Greenwald has also been absent from Larson’s Instagram. The last photo that Larson posted of the two on Instagram was in November last year. “‘Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.’ #CharlotteBrontë,” she captioned the Polaroid pic.
For the unversed, Larson and Greenwald started dating in 2013 and got engaged in the year 2016. Greenwald popped the question to Larson during their trip to Tokyo in March 2016. The couple kept the news a secret until Larson was spotted with her engagement ring on SNL two months later. Larson kept her love life private, but she gushed about him during an interview with Entertainment Tonight in January 2016. When asked about her then-boyfriend, Larson said, “Oh man, I mean, he’s the other half of the equation—how can you explain support? I mean, it goes beyond anything. He’s just my person, he’s my best friend.”
While she was accepting her Oscar award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for Room, Alex was seen mouthing the words, “I love you, too” to his lady love. Talking about her upcoming MCU movie, Captain Marvel is all set to release on March 8, 2019 and is one of the highly anticipated movies of the year.
