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!
It’s a question that has perplexed humankind since the dawn of time (or at least the last five years): Who is the hottest Canadian Ryan of All? The top two contenders are obviously Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds. But like Highlander, there can be only one. Everyone has their favorite choice, but seeing as how it’s Ryan Reynold’s 36th birthday today, we’ll give him the leg up above Mickey Mouse’s old flunky Gosling. Don’t believe us? Well, our crack team of pop culture experts have put the two Ryans to the test, measuring them against all sorts of important criteria. And the results were pretty telling. See for yourself!
Soapbox time, folks. Today’s New York Post has a “spy” quoted as saying Blake Lively is “glowing” now that she’s back on the Gossip Girl set, following her surprise (to us) wedding to Ryan Reynolds earlier this month. And everyone is on “bump-watch.” You know why they’re on bump watch? Because Blake is usually really careful about what she eats, but since her wedding, she seems to be eating a lot more.”
Hold on a second. Could she also be “glowing” because she just got back from a honeymoon? Could she be eating more because she’s no longer under the stress of planning a wedding, which tends to zap many a bride-to-be’s appetite? Sorry, since getting married almost 10 years ago, I’ve been hounded by people’s jokes that I’m pregnant literally every time I get sick. And once I did finally decide to have a kid, no one guessed it at all. People love to pretend they know everything that’s going on in another lady’s womb, don’t they? If she is pregnant, great for her! She’s all set with a new hubby and a house in the suburbs. But how’s about we let Blake enjoy a meal or two before we start with this stuff.
So by now the world has collectively gasped about Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s secret wedding, and we’re all jonesing for it to become not-so-secret. As in, details, please! We were asking the universe and the Dress Gods yesterday to apprise us of her wedding gown, ’cause we all know what a hard-core fashionista and designer darling Blake is. Luckily, the universe, or in this case, People, complied. The details that were released yesterday related that the nuptials took place in Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, just outside of Charleston, South Carolina, that the cake was driven down from Virginia and that Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine performed three songs at the reception.
The new information released is that Martha Stewart’s team was involved along with wedding planner Tara Guérard and they created an “intimate, personalized party” in a rustic barn, which Martha Stewart Weddings describes as, “From the heartfelt ceremony to the fun-filled carnival hour and elegant reception, it was a truly enchanting celebration.” Right, so it was schmancy. The location was picked because, “Ryan, who has been a long-time fan of Charleston, chose to mark this special occasion in one of his favorite towns.” Now check out what Blake wore. While we don’t have photographs, we certainly have a mental picture. People says it was a “one-of-a-kind Marchesa couture bridal ball gown with a hand-draped silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery,” while the bridesmaids wore blush-colored, crystal embroidered, chiffon Marchesa gowns, and everyone wore Christian Louboutin heels! And if you think Ryan was left behind, you’d be dead wrong. He, along with the groomsmen, wore Burberry suits and custom-made leather suspenders designed by Ryan’s pal Christopher Bailey aka Chief Creative Officer responsible for all Burberry’s designs. The rings were by Lorraine Schwartz, FYI. Now we really want to see photographs! Congratulations once again to the newlyweds!
What the … that impossibly good looking couple, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are married? Way to foil everyone, guys. We were looking forward to seeing a dress. A big, fancy, dripping-in-couture dress. But then these two upped and got hitched last night at something called the Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, just outside of Charleston in South Carolina. Okay — we’re back on, people. There must’ve been a dress. This wasn’t an elopement! How do we know that? The source who has gived out all the wedding news also reports that Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, who is pals with Blake, performed a three-song set for the couple, followed by a DJ, at the white tent festooned reception. Apparently, the cake was driven down from Virginia. That must’ve been some pretty special cake. We’e also guessing that the home in Bedford, New York, is where Blake and Ryan are going to nest for good, if the neighbors take it down a notch, that is. Woo! Sneaky marriage, FTW! You know who else Ryan sneakily married, right? Scarlett Johansson. But we won’t speak of past marriages on this happy occasion. We’re going to wish Blake and Ryan all the health and happiness. Their babies will have the best of the human gene pool, thanks to them (we hear snarky voices saying “if they make it that long” but we’re going to ignore them.) Now — that dress, Blake? Pictures, please?
It’s come to our attention recently that there are quite a few hot Ryans roaming the earth, with their abs and their grills and their Hey Girls and their father-son soccer games and their cute dates with Blake Lively. You know the ones: Lochte, Reynolds, Phillippe, Gosling…and yet there are more who deserve our love! Lesser-known Ryans, Ryans of decades past, Ryans with the last name of Seacrest – how can so many famous men fit under one two-syllable moniker?
We have chosen our favorites for The 10 Hottest Ryans of All Time (hand-picked by VH1-er and Ryan Expert, Kate Spencer) for your viewing pleasure below. They are in order from 10-1 because if there’s one thing these Ryans deserve, it is to be ranked! Onward.
Can’t Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds just find some peace in the suburbs? It seems the town of Bedford, New York, may not be the answer to these A-list stars’ attempt to live normal, private lives. Since purchasing a $2.3 million home the Westchester town in April, the couple has been apparently treated more like the celebrities they are and less like the Bedford citizens they are trying to be. Not only have they dealt with noisy neighbors and photographers, but Blake and Ryan were allegedly followed by another vehicle. After Reynolds called the police, the pursuer was identified as a photographer. Maybe this couple is being a tad over-dramatic and paranoid about maintaining their privacy, but let’s be honest, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that the people of Bedford would want to get in on this beautiful romance. But in the interest of respecting Blake and Ryan’s wishes, we’d like to propose some more, er, productive ways to spend your time in town:

Seeing as how The Avengersmade more money than the human mind can conceive (a $600 domestic box office, to be exact), it looks like we’ll be treated to even more superhero films in the coming forever. Ryan Reynolds is officially confirmed for the lead in the reboot of the 1986 action flick Highlander; Ryan will portray Conner MacLeod, “one of a dwindling group of immortals who wander the earth and kill each other in combat for the final ‘Prize’ – mortality.” Reynold’s other superhero flick Green Lantern wasn’t exactly a critical success last year (it currently has a 27% on Rotten Tomatoes), but considering the movie still raked in $219 million world wide, we’re betting movie goers will still turn out to see Highlander. If nothing else, people love decapitation! That’s really the only reason to watch the original version, if you haven’t seen it already…
Meanwhile, Romeo Miller (formerly Lil’) has the latest deets about a potential Black Panther movie. “I remember that before Jumping the Broom got released, there were some producers were talking about shopping the script to some people and I was one of the people they contacted and was asked if it was something I would be interested in,” Miller told BlackFilm while discussing his role in Madea’s Witness Protection. “You never know. I definitely want to take in and be the next big action hero. That may be something that’s cool.” Uh, yeah, that would be very, very cool. We are all about getting more superheroes of color on the big screen. Now if only we can get that Black Widow movie into production, we’ll never have to see a non-superhero movie ever again…
We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge andRobert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
2011 was a hard year for Scarlett Johansson: everyone saw her butt in those leaked photos, she had to get that unflattering red bob to film The Avengers, and oh right, she got divorced from Ryan Reynolds. “I don’t feel on the other side of it completely, but it gets better,” ScarJo reveals about the split in her new Vogue interview. “It’s still there. More than anything, it’s just that not having your buddy around all the time is weird.” Aw, the use of the word “buddy” just breaks our hearts! No wonder Johansson tried to drown her sorrows in a little Sean Penn. “We spent time together, yeah,” the actress says of the Academy Award winner. “I never put a title on it, really, but we were seeing each other.” You do whatever you need to do, girl! Or whom!
Luckily, Scarlett is currently seeing Nate Naylor, New York ad exec and seemingly normal human being. “It’s totally bizarre. It’s an adjustment—-I mean, it’s got to be an adjustment for him way more than it was for me at nineteen,” she says of the media scrutiny Naylor’s received. “But he’s really remarkably good about it.” As Johansson says about her recent obstacles, “From that comes a lot of really amazing things. I think it will be an interesting year.” Awwww! Just keep your pants on while using your phone, girl, and 2012 is all yours!
