Director/writer/actress Sarah Polley is premiering more than just her latest flick at the Toronto International Film Festival - the Canuck celeb will be debuting a baby bump!
Polley is three-and-a-half months pregnant with her husband, David Sandomierski, a PhD law student she married two weeks ago.
The couple wed in a small ceremony, which was followed by dinner at Haisai, a restaurant near Collingwood, Ont. "It was pretty much the best wedding of all time," said Polley to the Toronto Star. Cute!
But the newlyweds don't have time for a lengthy, relaxing honeymoon before baby is born, as Polley is promoting her new film, "Take This Waltz."
"Take This Waltz" screens Sept. 10 and 11 at TIFF, and - seeing as the flick was mostly shot in the city - is probably a comfortable location for the cast to visit. The flick stars Oscar nominee Michelle Williams as Margot, a married woman who must choose between her husband (Seth Rogen) and her neighbour (Luke Kirby). Comedic talent Sarah Silverman plays Margot's sister-in-law.
"She is amazing," fellow Canuck Seth Rogen told USA Today about Polley. "I couldn't believe she wanted me in the movie. I didn't want to ruin it - that was my goal everyday on set."
Rogen can rest assured that Polley knows what she's doing. The T.O. native last sat in the director's chair for 2006's "Away From Her," which earned Polley a best adapted screenplay nomination at the Academy Awards.
With a new marriage, a baby and film on the way, perhaps another Oscar nom will cinch the deal on Polley's whirlwind year? Either way, it sounds like 2011/2012 will be good for Sarah Polley.
