A Beautiful Mind Star Josh Lucas is said to be engaged, the actor who was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and who is now forty years old and who stars in NBC’s upcoming drama The Firm, confirmed Friday night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno that he was getting married.
While Lucas is keeping the details quiet at the moment (he won’t reveal his fiancée’s name!) he did say that an encounter with a mountain lion while staying at an “eco retreat” was what made him realize she was “the one.”
“I hear, totally serious, two big breaths, and six feet above me, I see the very slight glint of the eyes of a huge [mountain lion] and I literally proceed to do what I had just read in the instructions,” he explained. “And I started screaming and yelling and literally being as crazy as I could be, it padded off and just slowly went away and I worked my way into the trailer and I got in and I decided at that moment that this woman was the woman for me.”
