‘The Holiday’ actor Rufus Sewell, 56, engaged to girlfriend Vivian Benitez, 26

“The Holiday” star Rufus Sewell is engaged to his girlfriend, Vivian Benitez, who is thirty years his junior.

Benitez shared the news by posting two photos of her wearing a circular sparkler on her left ring finger.

In the first photo, Benitez showed off her hand with the new rock as it laid on her herringbone jacket.

Meanwhile, the second snap was a selfie of Benitez, 26, smiling from ear-to-ear with Sewell, 56, kissing her on the cheek.

“till death (or him continuing to walk on bathmats with his outside shoes) do us part,” she captioned the two photos on Tuesday.

Benitez didn’t share details about the proposal, but she posted a photo of herself from Rome one day prior.
