Maria Bello, star of The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, is engaged to marry her boyfriend Bryn Mooser, her rep has confirmed.

Bello,41, is the latest Hollywood actress to settle down with a younger man. Mooser, a writer, is just 28. Bello’s hometown newspaper, The Norristown Times Herald, in Norristown, Penn., was quoted as saying the two "fell in love over a sheer passion of politics, Africa and cryptozoology."

The actress recently told the New York Post’s Page Six Magazine that she "was always anti-marriage. I didn’t understand monogamy. I couldn’t figure out how that could last. And then I met Bryn and I started to understand the beauty of constancy and history and change and going on the roller coaster with someone–of having a partner in life."

Bello and Mooser have not set a date yet.
