Anya Taylor-Joy and Malcolm McRae: Proposal made at famous film bank

Actress Anya Taylor-Joy has a surprising connection to the hit film “Forrest Gump”. Her husband has a lot to do with it.

How and, above all, where did “The Queen’s Gambit” star Anya Taylor-Joy (28) actually get her marriage proposal from her husband Malcolm McRae (30)? The actress has now revealed this secret publicly – and revealed a truly astonishing location.

Bank application a “complete coincidence”

Because it is related to a very famous film: “Forrest Gump” from 1994, for which Tom Hanks (67) received an Oscar for best actor. To mark the 30th anniversary of the classic’s cinema release, a clip was published on Instagram in which Taylor-Joy gives an interview with her “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” colleague Chris Hemsworth (40).

In it, Hemsworth asks her if anything “special” happened in her life on the iconic bench from the film. The 28-year-old then revealed: “Yes, my husband accidentally proposed to me on the ‘Forrest Gump’ bench in Savannah.” But that was a “complete coincidence.” Nevertheless, there are other parallels to the film: “And he’s a boy from Alabama and I’m blonde, so… it just happened.” The film music also touches her deeply: “I hear this music and cry like a baby.”

The bench plays a central role in the 1994 film, which also starred Sally Field (77) and Robin Wright (58). Most of the story is told in flashbacks, with character Forrest telling strangers his surprisingly exciting life story while waiting for the bus on the bench. The original bench from the film is in the Savannah History Museum in Georgia. The couple probably got engaged on a similar bench at the Chippewa Square bus stop in Savannah, where the scenes were filmed.

Couple celebrated two weddings

The actress and the musician are said to have been in a relationship since May 2021. They secretly married in New Orleans in April 2022 before celebrating a second, big fairytale wedding in Venice in October 2023. The two, who also share a birthday on April 16, regularly post about each other on social media.
