tabloid says Justin and Kelly plan to get married; Kelly was in an indie film.
On the set of their upcoming film From Justin To Kelly, which American Idol‘s winner and runner-up fell in love and plan to get married with a $1 million wedding, according to The Star. A source tells the tabloid that FOX and show producers are thrilled and “are talking about footing the bill for a $1 million wedding if Kelly and Justin agree to have it filmed for a two-hour TV special.” Meanwhile, the film won’t be Kelly’s first acting roll; last year, she appeared briefly in an independent gay-themed movie that’s currently being shown at festivals. The director of Issues 101 tells, “We were looking for actresses who didn’t mind being in a gay-themed film, and Kelly’s generous spirit fit perfectly in our 90-minute project.” A two-minute preview of the movie, which includes Kelly’s cameo and some adult content, is available here.
