Ginnifer Goodwin Reveals Her Ketuba Went Missing on Day of Wedding (VIDEO)
Actress Ginnifer Goodwin revealed on Wednesday that her Jewish wedding contract went missing on the day she was to wed her Once Upon a Time co-star Josh Dallas.
“We hired a wedding planner to help us … and she called me crying on the morning of our wedding,” Goodwin, who is Jewish, said during a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “She said, ‘My car has been robbed.'”
“And she’s saying, ‘I’ve been on the phone with people in Israel,’ and I’m like, ‘OK, the rabbi was not kidnapped,'” the heavily pregnant 35-year-old continued.
The wedding planner then informed the actress that the couple’s ketubah was stolen. Goodwin was scheduled to get married later that day, April 12.
Goodwin, who said she was otherwise having the “most stress-free, relaxing, beautiful day,” said she remained calm and told the wedding planner, “The rabbi’s at a hotel, I’m sure there’s stationery there. We’ll be fine. This is not a big deal.”
The saga ended when an unsuspecting couple discovered the wedding contract lying on a street in Hollywood. The pair tracked down contact information for Goodwin’s reps online and arranged to return the precious document.
“By the time we get off the phone, I have messages from my representatives who say, this sounds like a joke, ‘Two Jews were walking down the street in Hollywood, found a piece of paper in the middle of the street, read Hebrew, knew that the 13th of Nissan was, like, the 12th of April, and that it therefore might be important that we get this piece of paper back with my name on it,” Goodwin told Kimmel.
Goodwin said she then sent the couple flowers saying, “You’re a mensch.”
