Given the wedding-happy atmosphere in Hollywood recently — from Mariah Carey‘s surprise wedding to Nick Cannon, to Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds‘ engagement — it didn’t come as a shock this week when rumors began to circulate that Kate Hudson and her back-on-again beau Owen Wilson were beginning to make wedding plans.

The reports of a Hudson/Wilson engagement are based almost solely on a photo showing the actress sporting a sizeable sparkler on her left ring finger. And anywhere but Tinseltown that would be a pretty certain sign that wedding bells were in the near future.

However, a rep for Kate tells OK! that the ring in question isn’t a token of Owen’s love for his gal-pal, but rather a little bit of movie magic.

"She’s filming a movie called Bride Wars!” the rep explains to OK!. "She is not engaged."

Kate, who was previously married to Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson, began dating Owen while filming the 2007 comedy You, Me & Dupree. The couple originally split last summer, shortly before the Shanghai Noon star’s attempted suicide in August.

After several months apart, the couple reunited earlier this year, with Kate making trips to visit Owen on the Miami set of his upcoming Jen Aniston co-starring film Marley & Me.
