No need to buy a gift just yet for 24 star Elisha Cuthbert and Trace Ayala, Justin Timberlake’s business partner, who got engaged last year.

The actress, 23, has been spotted sans her engagement ring – and her fianc . At a recent Hollywood party, the two barely spoke.

“Neither one of us is in a hurry to get married,” Ayala, 25, told PEOPLE at the launch of William Rast (his clothing line with partner Timberlake). “We’ve both got so much going on right now. I love her to death, so whatever happens, happens.”

Cuthbert’s rep declined comment.
