Actor Jokes Engagement Is Because of His Dog

Michael Vartan says his fiancée’s dog fell in love with his Lab.

Michael Vartan has his Labrador Retriever to thank for his recent engagement to fiancée Lauren Skaar — sort of.

“She has a dog that fell in love with my dog,” the former “Alias” actor joked to E! News. “It’s the only reason I proposed!”

Vartan also confirmed that he met Skaar in a Whole Foods parking lot.

“We did indeed!” the actor, who was once romantically linked to Ben Affleck’s wife Jennifer Garner, told E!, adding that he approached Skaar. “I guess it’s better than some bar or nightclub.”

So how long before the big day? “Ten years,” Vartan laughed. “No, I’m kidding. There’s no rules. We’ll play it by ear, but maybe a year. Enjoy the engagement, then see what happens.”

Vartan starred in “Hawthorne” with Jada Pinkett Smith on TNT, and played Drew Barrymore’s crush in 1999’s “Never Been Kissed.” It will be the first marriage for both Vartan and Skaar.

I once read an interview where he was asked about his new house, to which he responded, "it's Millie's house, she just lets me live there". Yeah, I love him too!
