Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill have reportedly called off their engagement.

The Canadian stars, who were engaged for two years, are thought to have split as the 27-year-old actress attended the 30th annual PaleyFest with her engagement ring noticeably absent, reported Us Weekly.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice actor previously hinted about the break-up in a now-deleted tweet in February: "Alone again, naturally. Heartbroken. I won't be on twitter for awhile gang. Getting dumped rules."

The couple got engaged in December 2010 after meeting on the set of hockey movie Goon, and had plans to marry in Quebec last September.

"We're getting married at an ice wine vineyard. Me and the groomsmen will all be wearing kilts! We'll be welcomed in by Irish pipers. It will be a very small, 70 person wedding, just friends and family," the Tropic Thunder actor said in February 2012.

But earlier this year, the 30-year-old admitted: "Unfortunately, we're two busy people who are intrinsically lazy. So in our free time, the last thing we want to do is book flights and organise hotel rooms for people. But it'll happen at some point."

Alison, who appeared in Woody Allen's To Rome With Love and Midnight In Paris, currently stars in HBO drama The Newsroom as News Night producer Maggie Jordan. Jay has been filming RoboCop and will reprise his voice role in How To Train Your Dragon 2.
