Ellen Barkin won't be walking down the aisle any time soon.

The actress has called off her engagement to Ben Emmerson, Us Weeklyreports.

The couple, who met at the wedding of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin last September (Emmerson is a colleague of Alamuddin's), got engaged over New Year's and announced their engagement earlier this month.

However, a source tells Us that Barkin, 60, quickly began having "second thoughts about their whirlwind romance" and decided she didn't know Emmerson, a 51-year-old barrister who lives in London, well enough to marry him. Barkin has reportedly given Emmerson's ring back.
