Kate Bosworth and Justin Long have tied the knot. In the episode of his podcast Life is Short from May 9, Long shared the good news.
Long stated he met the woman who would become his wife on the Bulgarian set of the horror picture Barbarian, and that he began to develop feelings for her during production.
He told guest Kyra Sedgwick-
“I was there while I was like really falling in love with my now-wife. She came to visit, and I had never been comfortable with… set visits. I like to separate the relationship… But, yeah, I loved having her there and we just had the most magical time.”
The 44-year-old added-“It helped me having her there. She’d help me with scenes. It was the best.” During an Amazon Live video with Long on May 15, Bosworth, 40, appeared to confirm the nuptials by revealing what appeared to be a wedding band paired with her engagement ring.
The couple’s representatives have been contacted by ET for comment. A source told ET in March that Long and Bosworth were “thrilled” to be getting married, and that the news of their engagement had been confirmed by mutual excitement.
The source said-
“They are both thrilled, and their loved ones are incredibly happy for them. They make an amazing couple and they’re so excited.”
After she wore a diamond ring on that finger at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, rumors began to circulate that Kate Bosworth and Justin Long were engaged.
In April, Long released an Instagram photo in which she and her partner confirmed the news, writing-
“She said YES… to being a guest on @lifeisshortpodcast! And to other slightly more life-changing questions. My favorite person is now also my favorite guest on my favorite podcast! One day the incredibly talented @katebosworth will be on this podcast and talk about her years of memorable acting performances but on THIS episode we mostly talk about… the events that lead up to her agreeing to spend her life with this very VERY lucky podcast host.”
“It felt like a leap to talk about something so personal so publicly but I’ve found that the scary things become much easier when you commit to the truth… and to a partner as loving and safe as Catherine Ann Bosworth.”
“We named this podcast ‘Life is Short’ because it’s a dumb pun (I love dumb puns) but also because I liked saying it out loud and hearing the reminder to live each day as fully as possible. “
“I feel eternally grateful that I found a partner who makes each day SO full, whose mere presence IS a reminder of the beauty and brevity of life, and who makes me laugh from the minute we wake up til the one I begrudgingly fall asleep.”
“I cherish the days we’ve had and the ones to come Listen to ‘Life is Short’ wherever you listen to podcasts. Or click the link in m’ story. OR go to @lifeisshortpodcast. Thank you for listening and to all the regular listeners for being so sweet and supportive today .”

Bosworth shared a series of photos on Instagram showing off her ring and a sweet message for her fiance when the news broke.
Bosworth wrote while referencing some of her films-
“These things are funny to announce. How to do this right? He’s going the distance? I’ve got a Blue Crush. He’s just THAT into me? I’ve won a date with…??? Ok, you get it.”
“We thought it might be nice to share our joy in a conversation you all can listen to, on my future husband’s @lifeisshortpodcast. So if you would like to be in the room with us (sort of!) & hear our story, the link is in my bio. If life is short, find the one who brings you endless peace and radical wonder. @justinlong I am so grateful it’s you.”

In 2021, while filming House of Darkness, rumors began circulating that Bosworth and Long were an item. The two have chosen to keep their romance under wraps. In April, they were spotted kissing while relaxing on a Hawaiian beach, making the allegations true. Long had bragged over his girlfriend on The Viall Files podcast the previous month, without naming Bosworth specifically, but he did reveal he had found “the one.”
The couple went Instagram public with their relationship in May of last year, following a string of dates and guest appearances on podcasts. Long is a virgin at the altar. After nearly eight years of marriage, Bosworth filed for divorce from their husband Michael Polish in 2022.
