The 37 year old planned on proposing to the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star a few weeks after the holidays in 2010 – but he got swept up in the moment and couldn’t wait.
During an appearance on U.S. chat show The View on Thursday (26Jul12), he revealed, “I had planned a very romantic way to do it – the restaurant that I first told her I loved her at – and so I thought, ‘Oh, I’ll go back there and do it right.’ That was gonna happen a couple (of) weeks after Christmas.
“But then Christmas Day we had such a beautiful day together, and we were laying in bed, and I thought, ‘I’m gonna try to fabricate this feeling in two weeks at this restaurant or I can just do it right now.’
“But I was not clothed at that moment. I was bare naked. And I walked to the bedroom, where I had been hiding it in a coat pocket, and on my way there it had occurred to her.”
