The 'Big Love' actress, whose real name is Jennifer Goodwin, reportedly files documents in Los Angeles County Superior Court to make her professional name official.
Ginnifer Goodwin is legalizing her stage name. The "He's Just Not That Into You" actress has allegedly filed documents in Los Angeles County Superior Court to modify her real name on Thursday, March 17.
Born Jennifer Goodwin, the Margene Heffman of "Big Love" used the moniker "Ginnifer" when she started to gain fame. The 32-year-old actress has recently requested the court to legalize her professional name, according to TMZ. Yet, she needs to wait a few months before the request can be made into realization.
Goodwin, in the meantime, has opened up about her last episodes in the hit TV series. Speaking in a recent interview for New York Magazine, the "Walk the Line" beauty admitted she was "devastated" to end the show. She said, "I am only comforted by the knowledge that if we had ended things vaguely, in order to set ourselves up for another possible season, we would not have been able to go out with such a bang."
