Justin Timberlake reportedly proposed to girlfriend Jessica Biel at a luxury resort in Wyoming on December 19.
 
According to sources, the pair are staying at a five star skiing resort in Jackson called the Amangani, and that's where the singer-turned-actor is believed to have got down on his knee to ask the 29-year-old actress to marry him.
 
Apparently, an art gallery in Jackson heard the news and took to Twitter to post about the couple's engagement.
 
'Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night,' they wrote.
 
Timberlake and Biel were together for four years, before hitting a rough patch at the beginning of last year.
 
The two had not been seen together for a while, with break-up rumours finally being confirmed in March.
 
After a few months apart, the Friends With Benefits star was snapped visiting Biel on set in Toronto, Canada, over the summer, the Mirror reported.

The pair was then spotted spending time together in New York a few times in August, and by September things seemed to be back on track.

Dutch magazine editor resigns over racial slur against Rihanna

The editor-in-chief of a Dutch magazine resigned over a racial slur over singer Rihanna.

Though earlier Eva Hoeke had insisted that the phrase was meant as a 'joke', but in her resignation statement, she has acknowledged that following the scandal her 'credibility has been hurt'.

'The term came from America and we solely used it to describe a style of dress. Because of the enormous pressure through social media I was tempted to promise amendment regarding the language in future issues of Jackie,' the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

'Apart from that I also offered a rectification. I have now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution.

'Through the course of events, me and the publisher have concluded that because my credibility is now affected, it is better for all parties if I quit my function as editor-in-chief effective immediately.

'After putting my heart and soul into for Jackie for eight years, I realise that these errors -- although not intended maliciously -- are enough reason for leaving.'

Hoeke revealed that Rihanna, who had taken to her Twitter page to blast the magazine for their statement, would get an opportunity to comment on the story in the next issue of the magazine.

'I should have counted to ten before taking unnuanced stands through social media channels. Through this my credibility has been hurt and that neither fits the role of an editor-in-chief, nor Jackie Magazine,' she said.

Due to the outrage that ensued following the publication's description of Rihanna, Hoeke had come forward to insist that there was no racist motive behind the words. Hoeke explained that the title of the article meant no harm on the magazine's Facebook page.

'While the author meant no harm -- the title of the article was intended as a joke -- it was a bad joke, to say the least,' she wrote on Facebook. 'And that slipped through my, the editor-in-chief's, fingers. Stupid, painful and sucks for all concerned,' she added.

James Franco is in talks to portray the role of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner of the early 1970s, in an upcoming biopic about porn legend Linda Lovelace.

Jennifer's Body actress Amanda Seyfried has replaced Kate Hudson to portray Lovelace in the project, opposite Peter Sarsgaard, who will portray the role of the porn star's husband Chuck Traynor, Contactmusic reported.

Franco was previously linked to the role of Traynor, but now he's being touted to take on a smaller part as the Playboy magazine founder, reports trade paper Daily Variety.

Hank Azaria has also joined the cast as Jerry Damiano, who was the director of hit porn film Deep Throat.
