Beanie Feldstein is ENGAGED! Booksmart actress set to marry girlfriend Bonnie Chance Roberts… who pops the question in romantic proposal party attended by star’s brother Jonah Hill
Beanie Feldstein has announced she’s engaged to be married to producer Bonnie Chance Roberts after a three year romance.
On Thursday, the Booksmart actress posted snaps from the romantic proposal with Bonnie getting down on one knee, with Beanie’s brother Jonah Hill in attendance.
Beanie’s girlfriend Bonnie, 31, was dressed smartly in black trousers and a grey patterned jacket as she popped the question in front of their family and friends.
The 28-year-old actress – who recently starred as Fanny Brice in a revival of Funny Girl on Broadway – wore a pink and white gingham dress and sandals, as she looked visibly overwhelmed in the pictures.

Beanie is said to have met Bonnie while working on the 2019 film How to Build a Girl, where Bonnie was a producer.
While the film – based on a novel by Caitlin Moran – received mixed reviews and failed to bring in any profit at the box office, it was clearly a personal success for lead star Beanie.
In an interview with Teen Vogue, Beanie said Bonnie’s gender and being in a same-sex romance wasn’t an issue because, ‘I was in love with her and all of her.’
Bonnie is from Liverpool, England and a graduate of Birmingham University.

The couple made things official when Beanie shared a snap of them together in October 2018 with the caption: ‘She made it across the pond.’
A year later, Beanie spoke to PEOPLE Magazine about how the label ‘queer’ doesn’t define her, saying: ‘For me in my life, it is a part of who I am but it is not at all my defining feature.’
In a very gushing birthday tribute to the film producer, Beanie wrote in a 2020 Instagram post: ‘happy 30th birthday to the most remarkable human ever to exist. @bonnie_chance – i’m pretty convinced you’re actually made of magic.’
Adding: ‘the girl with the warmest heart, the most expansive imagination and the most exceptional brain. i love you so much. happy birthday, bubba!!!’
Cause for celebration: The happy couple were surrounded by a large group of family and friends for the occasion
