(LOS ANGELES) — Elisha Cuthbert, former star of 24 and now part of the ensemble of ABC’s hit comedy Happy Endings, has happy feelings about Christmas. Cuthbert, who plays the spacey sister Alex on her current show, says she’s relishing her last Christmas as an unmarried woman — she’s engaged to Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf — and says once they walk down the aisle, they’ll be hosting the festivities.
Cuthbert says, “I’m going to embrace it and enjoy it, and then force the family to come see us every year.”
Marriage changed the holidays for The Office star Ellie Kemper. She says now that she’s married, she and her man, TV writer Michael Korman, won’t have to be split up.
Kemper, who plays Erin on The Office, says, “We did not sleep in the same room until we were married, which I think is totally appropriate and I agree with it.” She adds, “So my future kids, listen to what I just said. Because that’s going to be the same thing for you.”
