Actor Jude Law has become engaged to actress Sienna Miller after proposing to her on Christmas Day.

The 32-year-old actor met Miller, 23, on the set of last year's movie remake of Alfie. No wedding date has been set.

Law earned Academy Award nominations for his roles in The Talented Mr Ripley and Cold Mountain, and stars in new romantic drama Closer.

He has three young children by his ex-wife, British fashion designer and actress Sadie Frost.

'Top achiever'

Frost was granted a divorce from Law in October 2003 after six years of marriage, citing "unreasonable behaviour" on his part.

Law proposed to Miller as they spent Christmas together in England, their spokesperson confirmed.

British actress Miller played Nikki in Alfie, who was charmed by Law's title character. She also appeared in last year's gangster movie Layer Cake and TV series Keen Eddie in 2003.

Last week Law was entered into the 2005 edition of Debrett's People of Today, which lists Britain's top achievers, and he was named "sexiest man alive" by US magazine People.

The Mike Nichols-directed Closer, in which Law stars alongside Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen, has earned five Golden Globe nominations.
