Actress Kate Bosworth announced via Twitter on Tuesday that she is engaged to Michael Polish, the 41-year-old director she began dating a year ago. "This photo was taken by my husband-to-be!," Bosworth, 29, tweeted in reference to the black-and-white shot above. "Thank you all for the wonderful engagement wishes... We feel truly blessed."

Front and center in the photo is the vintage-inspired engagement ring Bosworth had been sporting on her right hand since calling Polish "my fiance" in a travel blog she penned for Vogue.com-so it's likely that Polish popped the question while they vacationed in Seoul, South Korea. The two met while working together on Polish's forthcoming movie "Big Sur," which tells the story of Beat poet and novelist Jack Kerouac's three brief trips to a cabin in California.
