We had our suspicions: When you’re marrying a billionaire, would you really be satisfied with a quick service in City Hall? Nah. And Salma Hayek‘s proved that her official wedding ceremony to super-super-super-rich Francois-Henri Pinault in February was only a taster for the real deal.
Celebrities like Bono, Charlize Theron, Penelope Cruz, Stella McCartney and Ashley Judd all descended on Venice this past weekend for an elegantly glamorous celebration. The couple and guests donned masks for a ball on Friday night and renewed their vows at the river city’s La Fenice opera house the next day. She may have claimed she wasn’t going to spend the cash on a “ridiculous” wedding ceremony only a few days ago, but after looking at the photos from these super-exclusive nuptials, we think Mrs Pinault may have been feeding the media a bit of a line. Cheeky! But congratulations (again). [Photo: Splash News Online]
Oh no, Charlize Theron, oh no! We hadn’t seen the South African beauty hit up the red carpet for a little while, and it seems like she’d been saving this monstrosity dress up for maximum impact. We know the Eighties are back, but surely this is a bad-taste experiment too far? At the Paris premiere of her latest movie The Burning Plain, Charlize turned up in a dress that, um, defies convention.
There’s a reason zips were invented, Charlize, and that’s so you don’t have to tie your dress fabric across your shoulder to keep it on. And we’re sure we last saw that reflective material when wrapping up tired runners at the end of the marathon. Blee!
What to do if your movie is on fire at the box office? If your Kristen Stewart, you celebrate by lighting up the peace pipe on your front porch (see the incriminating photo at BuzzFeed). This gorgeous ganga lover got us thinking that there is a whole list of Hollywood hotties who love to indulge in smoking the Mary Jane. Check out our gallery of Hollywood’s Hottest Stoner Chicks.

Well, it wasn’t a coincidence that saw Robert de Niro, Denzel Washington, Wesley Snipes, Ben Affleck, Lily Allen, Charlize Theron, Michael Jordan, Mischa Barton, Mary-Kate Olsen and Lindsay Lohan (plus SamRo, natch) all turn up in Dubai last night. They were all (plus lots more hangers-on) attending the launch of the $1.5 billion Atlantis resort on the man-made Palm Jumeirah island. If you’re feeling financially embarrassed by the credit squeeze at the moment, you might not want to know that the launch party cost $22 million, and celebrities enjoyed eating tons of lobster, smoked salmon, oysters and champagne, while watching Kylie Minogue perform a set in front of the world’s biggest fireworks display. Oh, and they were all flown out there for free, and got to stay in suites worth tens of thousands of dollars a night.
Next time you hear someone complain about “loss of privacy” or “paparazzi intrusion”, just look at their happy little faces last night. Honestly, it’s totally worth it. [Photo: Getty Images]
Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron are about to star in a new movie together – as a married couple! These two hotties will co-star in the film, The Danish Girl, which tells the story of husband and wife Einar and Greta Wegener. The male Einar, to be played by Nicole, posed as a woman for the female painter Greta, played by Charlize. The portraits became quite the rage in Copenhagen and in 1931, Einar went the extra mile and underwent a sex change operation. Taking on these challenging roles is why Nicole and Charlize are added to our list of Hollywood’s Hottest Celesbians. Check out our gallery of reigning celesbians! [Source: People; Photo: Getty]
French actress Eva Green, who starred as Vesper Lynd in the last Bond film Casino Royale, has got sultry looks and a rocking model figure. And doesn’t she know it. Speaking to You magazine about how she copes with her boyfriend, New Zealand Marton Csokas doing sex scenes, she explained why it’s not a problem – even when he’s getting hot with Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux.
“He did [a love scene] himself with Charlize Theron but it didn’t worry me because I’m better looking than she is.”
O-kay. Well, that’s one way of dealing with jealousy. But is she really fitter than Charlize? In Monster, no problem. Elsewhere…well, we’ll leave it up to you to make that choice.

It’s flesh-colored beards vs. method eyebrows! Based on unglamorous roles in movies like Monster and In The Valley Of Elah, we know Charlize Theron must take “reality” very seriously. This devotion to facial grit helps explain why The Hills bothers her so much—not to mention why she approves of the running mascara. The Oscar winner went off on the show recently in an interview with MTV:
So I watched a couple episodes. I was doing a world tour at the time, so I watched them in a couple languages. I realized that this f—ing show is huge. Now I’m going to ask you a question: Why?
…Why is it so big? It’s about nothing! This is a free country. Freedom of speech! You can tell me right now to my face that Reindeer Games was a piece of shit. That’s totally fine. But The Hills is about nothing. I think the girls are beautiful and when they cry their mascara runs and that’s real, but I don’t get it!
I am a nana. I’ll just take it. I am a nana. Maybe I need to watch the shows some more.
With her “nana” caveats and willingness to admit that the 2000 Ben Affleck “thriller” Reindeer Games was less than stellar (she shows her boobies in it, though!), it should be hard for anyone to mind that Theron fails to see the je ne sais qua that has made the show such a massive success. Except Spencer. He’ll be pissed.
Every so often we’ll rattle off five things that happen to be on our minds. Things we love, things we hate, things we love to hate. And whatever else is bothering us. Enjoy!
1. Shiny Leggings
Oh, the legging. We thought they were left for dead in the ’80s, but recently they’ve made quite the comeback! Today they are more adventurous – superhero adventurous. Enter the shiny rubber/leather/pleather legging sometimes complete with knee-pads. Cause you never know when you’ll need to, um, get down on your knees? Lohan, away! [Photos: Shiny leggings]
2. The Summer Scarf
While we can see a need for the summer scarf in places like hmmmm… Napakiak, Alaska, this summer fad is mostly the colorful creator of unnecessary neck sweat. [Photos: Summer Scarves]
