Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are “definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

We’d like to start by saying that we love our work. We just love pizza, ice cream cakes and those Girl Scout cookies with the coconut a hell of a lot more. And that’s the thing that separates us from the truly great actors. Well, that and a zillion KFC buckets worth of talent! Uber-dedicated movie stars will sometimes go the extra mile and put their bodies through insane physical transformations that make us sore just watching them up there on the big screen. Many hit the gym ruthlessly to purge every excess pound from their body and slim down, while some (occasionally) take a few weeks to pack on the pounds for a role. If it were us we’d choose the pound-packing parts exclusively, but hey!
More recently Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto took the tougher route and each shed an unbelievable amount of weight for their respective roles. Anne famously lost 25 pounds for the part of Fantine in the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables by eating two thin squares of oatmeal paste a day! We imagine that includes no dessert? McConaughey jettisoned his Magic Mike six-pack to play the HIV positive lead in Dallas Buyers Club, and his whopping 40 pound weight loss has lead some to wonder if he’s going too far. It’s got to be rough, but they certainly aren’t the first famous folks to go through such a dramatic body overhaul before going in front of the camera. Head on down to the gallery below for more thespians who took their bodies to crazy town, all in the name of their art. Sit down with a nice bag of chips and enjoy!

Looks like Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries is now official. “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kim said in a statement to E! News. “I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.” Meanwhile, new hubby Kris sounds a lot less thrilled about the announcement, saying in a statement, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” They still had that new marriage smell, too!
While Kim and Kris might be ready to sign those divorce papers only 72 days after their nuptials, they are nowhere near the first celebrity couple to bail out of their wedded bliss just weeks or months after walking down the aisle. From Mario Lopez to Britney Spears, Liz Taylor to Lisa Marie Presley, let’s look back at our favorite shortest Hollywood marriages:

Colin Firth of the sexy open shirt may be a shoo-in for Best Actor at the Oscars this year, but you wouldn’t know it from all the events he attended Monday. Following the traditional Oscar Nominees Luncheon, Firth skipped off to the AARP’s 10th Annual Movies For Grown Ups Awards with his The King’s Speech co-stars and crew. And if that wasn’t enough handshakes for one day, Audi threw a party for the film at the Chateau Marmont, attended by everyone from Mick Jagger and Orlando Bloom to Bridget Jones herself, Renee Zellweger. Why all the hobnobbing when he’s already won just about every trophy leading up to the big event? Because the Weinstein Company thinks they can do even better than Best Actor.
Though The Social Network has long been considered the front-runner for Best Picture, The King’s Speech is now considered the most likely dark horse candidate to steal the prize. Weinstein Company head Harvey Weinstein, a notorious Oscar angler who managed to push Shakespeare In Love past Saving Private Ryan in the ’90s, and he’s basically making the same campaign for The King’s Speech, pushing it as a family-friendly alternative to an ugly bit of zeitgeist—movies about the mean young pricks behind Facebook won’t really fly with the AARP crowd. Do you think they’ve got a shot or will they have to settle for Colin’s wall of Best Actor nods?
Before the stars were stars, they were normal people trying to make a living. Every penny they made was spent on rent and food, not stylists and clothing. That’s why it’s so awesome to see celebrity before-and-after shots: getting a glimpse of what J.Lo looked like with crazy eyebrows or when Alec Baldwin was just a sliver of his current self. We wanted to honor some of our finest actors and performers by going back in time—back to when no one could bother to get their clothes tailored, they were too cheap to use anything but boxed hair color, and the word “stylist” didn’t even exist in Hollywood. Some of these people are a victim of the era from whence they came, but others have no excuse. The important thing to remember: these people had a choice about how to dress, and these are the outfits they chose. The awkward, tragic outfits they chose.

You know what must suck for actors? Not being able to run from a flop. Though the A-Team made less than half as much money in its first week as The Karate Kid (four badasses don’t remotely equal one Jaden Smith, apparently), the film still requires some international promotion, explaining the forced grins of Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel and all the other not-likely-to-see-a-sequel actors by the Eiffel Tower in Paris yesterday (the laughing-or-shrieking Bradley even did a modest reprise of his Hollywood premiere shtick, showing up in a jeep instead of a tank).
Whether The A-Team is really an A-Team, Paris is really Paris, meaning the stars didn’t have a hard time getting their loved ones to come along for the trip. Jessica was spotted at dinner with Justin Timberlake, while Bradley’s girlfriend Renee Zellwegger got her jog on nearby. See photos of all the stars in the gallery below.

Bam Margera must have been off being married to another woman last night, because for once he wasn’t hanging off “just” friend Kat Von D on the red carpet. The tattoo artist/model put on her finest stripes to attend “An Evening With Women: Celebrating Art, Music & Equality,” an event held by the LA Gay & Lesbian Center in Beverly Hills, featuring performances by Pink and Linda Perry. See their wild outfits, as well as Renee Zellweger and AnnaLynne McCord, in the gallery below.
When exactly did Bradley Cooper become an action bad-ass? Ten years ago he was Amy Poehler‘s gay musical partner in Wet Hot American Summer, taking TV roles (Kitchen Confidential) and bit parts in comedies (perhaps you saw The Comebacks?) before stardom came calling with last year’s The Hangover. He lost the part of Green Lantern to Ryan Reynolds, but his heroics in the upcoming A-Team movie must have been impressive enough to snag him the lead in The Dark Fields, a full-blown “techno-thriller” about mind-altering designer drugs co-starring Abbie Cornish and Robert DeNiro.
Shia LaBeouf was originally set to play Eddie, a slacker turned hyper-intelligent speed freak, but now it’s Bradley getting a gun pulled on him by some Statham-esque thug on set. If The Dark Fields—planned for March 2011—and The A-Team are hits, it might be a while before we see Cooper chasing Sandra Bullock in a rom-com like All About Steve again. Let’s hope it doesn’t get to his fake-tanned head!

New York experienced some lovely weather this Easter, but judging from the shrouded trolls at Lend Me A Tenor‘s Broadway opening last night, you’d think it was as chilly as a Tim Burton movie. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen looked positively witchy at the musical’s premiere, with Mary-Kate wearing a massive black coat and both sporting see-through lace gowns and sunglasses. Thankfully, stars like Renee Zellweger, Julianne Moore and Zach Galifianakis kept the shindig from going too goth. Get a closer glimpse at these stars (and more!) in the gallery below and let us know which twin’s look was least impressive in our FABLife poll.
