Seann William Scott of "American Pie" fame jokes that he is surprised his fiance, former Victoria's Secret model Lindsay Frimodt, accepted his marriage proposal.
The 35-year-old actor, who plays flirty jokester Steven Stifler in the sex-crazed comedy movie franchise, talked about the engagement on a recent appearance on "Windy City Live," a show produced by WLS Television in Chicago. It is the sister station of KABC Television, OnTheRedCarpet.com's parent company.
"I'm still surprised she said 'Yes,'" Scott said on the program, while pictures of himself and his Frimodt were shown on screen.
Rumors of his engagement began earlier this month after a report in the tabloid Life & Style. Scott confirmed the news at the "American Reunion" premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. He has never been married before. The actor and his fiance have been dating for at least a year.
Frimodt, who is 33, according to public records, was discovered by an agency called ProScout when she was a teenager. She walked the runway at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2002 and in 2003 and has been featured in ads for companies such as Christian Dior, BCBG Max Azria, Emporio Armani, Levi's, Naf Naf, L'Oreal and UGG Australia. She also starred in Justin Timberlake's 2003 music video, "I'm Lovin' It."
Scott appeared on the show with co-star Jason Biggs to promote the fourth big-screen installment of the hit series. The film, "American Reunion," hits theaters on April 6. Scott said on "Windy City Live" that playing Stifler gave him "a career and a life that I never could have imagined," adding: "It's a fun character to be known as, so it could be worse."
The original "American Pie" film was released in 1999. Scott reprised his role in the first three. "American Reunion" sees the characters attending their high school reunion.
It stars other past cast members such as main star Jason Biggs, Tara Reid, Shannon Elizabeth, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Natasha Lyonne, Mena Suvari, Chris Owen, Jennifer Coolidge and Alyson Hannigan. The actress, who is pregnant with her second child, showcased her baby bump in a green mini-dress at the premiere (see photos).
