Coachella is a magical place where retirees expand their horizons and TV stars fall in love.Aaron Paul, the Emmy-winning star of "Breaking Bad," describes how Coachella brought him and his fiancée Lauren Parsekian, 24, together. He told People:

"We'd met at Coachella [the California music festival], became friends. And then a year later, we fell in love at Coachella. We ran off together at Coachella. You know, first kiss on the Ferris wheel sort of thing."

Paul, 32, hasn't set a date for the wedding yet, but he proposed to his fiancée on New Year's Eve (far from Coachella Valley) in Paris.People notes that Paul doesn't casually drop "bitch" into his conversation like the character he portrays on "Breaking Bad" but he can't help but say "yo" all the time.
