It's no surprise that director Stephen Ringer's proposal to actress Aly Michalka was straight out of a movie. After planning a trip with her mom and sister to show them the couple's favorite spots in Big Sur, California, the Two and a Half Men actress says her now fiancé used the opportunity to set the scene to pop the big question. "He planned that we were going to go on a hike in the morning, which didn't seem weird at all to me because we do that every time we go to Big Sur," Michalka, 25, told People at Matt Leinart »

Aly Michalka managed to keep her engagement a secret for more than a week! Director Stephen Ringer proposed to the Two and a Half Men star under Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, Calif., on July 8, the 78Violet singer's rep tells E! News, adding, "They are planning for a late 2015 wedding." Aly first flashed her ring at Just Jared's Summer Fiesta over the weekend, but her new bling went undetected.

Well, who could say no to that?! Certainly not Aly Michalka! The Two and a Half Men star announced her engagement to boyfriend of nearly two years Stephen Ringer via Instagram Tuesday. And thanks to her crystal clear (or should we say diamond clear?) snapshot jewelry expert Zaven Ghanimian was easily able to break down all the details. "This is a vintage-style engagement ring with a 2-3.5 Princess cut center stone," shares Ghanimian, CEO of Simon G Jewelry. He estimates the platinum ring costs between $20,000 and $30,000. No doubt, the 25-year-old is very happy with her gorgeous sparkler and more importantly thrilled to soon say "I do" to her director-beau. Earlier in the day she even shared »

It’s a suggestion every filmmaker dreads reading while perusing notes from a producer: “Can’t you make your protagonist more likable?” But in the case of “Sequoia,” such a recommendation might have been well heeded. As Riley, an angry young woman bent on beating the reaper before she’s felled by cancer, Aly Michalka is much too convincing in her fingernails-on-chalkboard abrasiveness, making it difficult to develop a rooting interest in her character’s fate until the three-quarters mark of helmer Andy Landen’s road-movie dramedy. Long before that point, unfortunately, many if not most viewers will have switched off this VOD-bound indie.
To be fair, Michalka appears to be playing the role as it’s written by scripter Andrew Rothschild, who doesn’t stint on doling out annoying qualities to the supporting characters as well. But Landen and Michalka might have made the long journey more involving had »

Riley (Aly Michalka) has been diagnosed with sarcoma carcinoma (a.k.a. mouth cancer). Her chances of survival are slim at best and it is more than likely that her lower jaw will need to be removed in the not-so-distant future. Being that the 23-year-old would rather choose how, when and where she dies, she heads to Sequoia National Park to commit suicide. Along the way to Sequoia, Riley meets-cute with Ogden (Dustin Milligan), an earnest young man with a banjo who is on his way to meet up with a bunch of his Christian cohorts. Ogden sees a beautiful young woman in need, so he turns on his Christian charm and attempts to help her. Once he finds out that Riley is on a one-way path to suicide, Ogden is left in a very precarious position. Does he help Riley achieve her goal or fight to change her mind? »

An uneven, but still strangely appealing, look at mortality, second chances and family dysfunction, the SXSW indie "Sequoia" may resemble a less joyful, arguably more honest version of the "Little Miss Sunshine" narrative, but it still has its own charms despite having many disagreeable characters. Reilly is one of them (Aly Michalka, perhaps best remembered as Emma Stone’s squeaky best friend in "Easy A"). A young, beautiful 23-year-old, she should have her whole life ahead of her. But she’s moody, sarcastic and cynical for good reason: mortally debilitating obstacles rest heavy on Reilly’s soul. She’s reached a stage three level of sarcoma carcinoma mouth cancer. And so, with the situation looking bleak (the removal of her lower jaw being an option if she reaches stage four), she decides to pack it all in with one last trip to Sequoia National Park. But Reilly’s planned suicide isn’t going very well. »

Suicide can be a pretty tough subject to tackle in film. Nine times out of ten, a "will they/won't they" drama suffers from the major flaw of deflated stakes as the audience is smart enough to figure out the filmmaker isn't very likely to kill his or her protagonist. So it is actually rather refreshing when Sequoia's protagonist Riley (Aly Michalka) swallows a lethal cocktail of prescription pills in the film's first act. Yep. She's going to go through with it. The drugs are going to take some eight hours to take effect, giving Riley the time to say goodbye to her sister at their predetermined farewell spot in Sequoia National Park. That is, until her sister calls to let her know she wrecked...

Nearing its premiere at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival, director Andy Landen's romantic comedy-drama "Sequoia" releases its first official trailer. The film, set to premiere at the festival on March 9, stars Aly Michalka (CW's "Hellcats," "Easy A"), Dustin Milligan ("Beverly Hills 90210") and Joey Lauren Adams ("Chasing Amy," "Dazed and Confused," "Big Daddy," and "The Break-Up"). "Sequioa" follows the troubled journey of a terminally ill young woman who plans to end her trek to California's Sequoia National Forest with her own suicide. What she doesn't plan for, however, is the intervention of her dysfunctional family and the unexpected romance that blossoms with the shy musician who takes her to her destination, which may possibly renew her appreciation for life. The trailer presents the film as both sweet and morbid, with Michalka's character running away from her life with a complete stranger (Milligan) who accompanies her along the way to the forest as her family frantically. »
