Adrien Brody and his actress girlfriend Elsa Pataky, apparently, are taking their love relationship one notch higher. The couple, according to friends, are about to exchange wedding vows in Spain in 2009.
Brody and Elsa have been dating since 2006 and they even share a New York home. However, it was not until recently that wedding talks started to surface as the Spanish actress was snapped sporting a gold ring on her engagement finger last week.
"Elsa said it was a promise ring from Adrien and that they were going to get married next year in Spain," Star magazine quoted a source as saying. No exact date and venue have been confirmed though.
Romance aside, Brody received widespread recognition for the lead role in Roman Polanski's "The Pianist" (2002). The role won him a Best Actor Academy Award and Best Actor Cesar Award as well.
Elsa, elsewhere, appeared in a supporting role in the 2006 action-thriller "Snakes on a Plane" alongside Samuel L. Jackson. She, according to reports, is currently receiving good reviews for her work in the Spanish film "Ninette".
