Reese Witherspoon realized her best years were already five behind her. Us Weekly had the details:
Reese Witherspoon married Jim Toth early Saturday evening at her 6-acre ranch in Ojai, Calif., UsMagazine.com has confirmed.
Wearing a custom-designed Monique Lhuillier gown, the actress, 35, exchanged vows with CAA agent Toth, 40, in front of 120 family members and friends (including Renee Zellweger, and Alyssa Milano, and Tobey Maguire) in the front courtyard of the Ojai house.
Reese and Jim dated for about a year before they got engaged.
Sources close to the newlyweds tell Us they’re the perfect match. Says one pal of Toth, who’s bonded with her kids: “He’s a very confident guy who takes care of her.” “[Reese] really wants to be married and have that security with someone,” another insider says. “They feel like they’ve hit the jackpot in this relationship!”
It’s early and it’s an aging Tracy Flick. This is supposed to be a huge deal, but at best, I almost care. I’m just a little peeved that her chin is probably going to be on magazine covers this week.

Lindsay Lohan is dropping her last name because she hates her dad. And because she can. From PopEater:
Diddy did it. So did Madonna and Prince, and now you can add Lindsay Lohan to the list of celebrities who are opting for a single moniker, with the troubled star’s mom, Dina, confirming to me that Lindsay plans to remove “Lohan” from her official name.
“Lindsay is dropping the Lohan and just going by Lindsay,”
Dina tells me, exclusively. “Plus, me and [younger daughter] Ali will be officially changing our last names back to my maiden name, Sullivan.” Lindsay had been thinking about dropping her surname for some time but at first thought no one would know who she was. It was only after the infamous Super Bowl E-trade advertisement referring to a baby as “that milkaholic Lindsay,” that the actress knew she no longer needed it.
“So many of the greatest people in showbiz are known by just their first name. Look at Oprah and Beyonce. Now you can add Lindsay to that list,” a family friend tells me. “And it’s a way for them all to start over. No one in the family want anything to do with Lindsay’s father [Michael Lohan] anymore and that includes sharing a last name.”
Of course, Michael Lohan denied everything.
Michael responded with a clear denial later Friday during a visit to Jane Velez-Mitchell’s hit HLN show. “I don’t think it’s true at all,” he said. “I would never imagine any of my kids changing their name, especially Lindsay.”
While I admit it makes sense for Dina Lohan to change her last name (she’s been divorced for years), I don’t see this working out. Despite releasing some shitty albums before getting dropped from her label, Lindsay isn’t known for being a pop star, and this isn’t a smart move for a would-be film star. Beyonce, Prince, Diddy, and Madonna are known for their talent, their longevity, and their brands. Lindsay is known for her addictions to Captain, coke, cock, and cuffs. She may want to focus on getting work before worrying about how many Ls are in the marquee.
This has nothing to do with ratings. E! Online reports:
ABC didn’t plan on filing a complaint against recent Good Morning America guest Chris Brown when he destroyed part of his dressing room this week. Quite the opposite: After host Robin Roberts’ questions about Rihanna and Brown’s legal woes infuriated the star so much that he threw a chair through a plate-glass window, GMA extended him another invitation to come back on the show!
Indeed, sources at ABC have confirmed to me that producers want to “milk this event for everything its worth,” high moral news standards (and, one assumes, laws, especially those involving convicted felons and their subsequent behavior) be damned. And not only was Brown’s upcoming Dancing With the Stars appearance next week not canceled, as we predicted, guess what other media deal ABC wants to build with bad-boy Brown?
A reality show, perhaps?
“No, that would never happen here,” said a top-level ABC insider, who knows the current situation regarding Brown very well. “What’s far more likely is orchestrating Chris Brown talking to Rihanna for the first time.”
I’m assured that’s a top get to get at the network right now—especially now that all things Brown have electrified the media so much.
Reuniting Chris Brown with Rihanna is such an awesome idea that everyone can get behind. He’s demonstrated that he’s learned his lesson and can successfully manage his anger. Plus, what he did wasn’t so bad. I mean, look–she still has all of her teeth. And c’mon guys, he got a certificate. You have to earn those. Just like I did for making the best brownies at the bake sale. I’m not sure what Chris Brown’s secret to success is, but I know mine. For a fudgier consistency, use one less egg.
Here’s Vanessa Hudgens at a Suckerpunch premiere. It seemed to fit.
Michaels has filed a lawsuit against Tony Award Productions, CBS and others … blaming producers for not instructing him on how to safely exit the stage after his performance was over … because while he tried to exit, he was “smacked” in the face by a piece of the set.
In the suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Michaels claims he had to be hospitalized for a broken nose and a cut lip.
Six months after the awards, Bret nearly died from a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage — and the rocker insists it was NO coincidence.
In his suit, Michaels claims, “One of the most common causes of this type of hemorrhage is head trauma — exactly like the one Michaels suffered at the hands of the Tony Awards.”
Michaels notes, “Through his sheer will to live, to see his children grow up, [he] was able to survive this trauma.”
Bret says producers have “failed and refused” to remedy the situation … and even blamed him for the mishap at the Tony Awards, claiming he “missed his mark.”
Michaels is suing for unspecified damages. A rep for the Tonys had no comment.
Bret Michaels is suing the producers of the Tony Awards because he’s awkward, fumbling, and never learned how to duck. Does this mean I can get damages for when I got it in my eye once? Yeah, I probably could’ve moved, but he never warned me. You know what that does to contact lenses?
Charlie Sheen’s got an A-list project to launch his comeback since being fired from Two And A Half Men. Oh, wait. From Radar Online:
Charlie Sheen filmed a small cameo for the movie She Wants Me, starring Hilary Duff, and RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that he’s also taken on the role of executive producer!
According to a source, Sheen initially agreed to a part in the movie because he’s good friends with one of the producers, Mark Holder, and eventually he progressed into an executive producer title.
“Charlie is one of the executive producers on the film, which is a new addition to the small role he has,” director Rob Margolies’ rep told RadarOnline.com.
“They filmed last fall and are currently editing the movie which should be ready for a June release.” In addition to Duff, the movie also features Love and Other Drugs star Josh Gad, who is a neurotic writer working on a screenplay who ends up in a sticky situation when an A-list actress shows interest in a role that he was hoping his girlfriend would get.
If you’re looking for a comeback vehicle, you should probably look elsewhere than a project where Hilary Duff is the marquee name. Charlie Sheen has a better shot at resurrecting his career doing dinner theater in North Dakota. Or, you know, by drinking chocolate milk and not doing drugs.
In one of the most overrated movies and performances of last year, Natalie Portman won the Oscar for Best Actress for her role as a crazy ballerina in Black Swan. Oscar voters were told how she diligently trained for months to transform herself into a ballerina. When in reality, Darren Aronofsy turned her into a ballerina by CGI-ing her head on an actual ballerina’s body. And, yes. CGI-ing is a word. I just made it up. Haha, suck it Webster! E! Online reports:
In her acceptance speech, Natalie graciously thanked her trainer, former New York City Ballet dancer, Mary Helen Bowers, her fiancé and costar, Benjamin Millepied, as well as a handful of other contributors. Someone whom Portman forgot to mention? Her dancing double, Sarah Lane, whose name has only surfaced after the Oscar win. In an interview with Dance Magazine, Lane claims that she had been asked by a Fox Searchlight producer to stop giving interviews until after the Oscars. “They were trying to create this facade that she had become a ballerina in a year and a half. So I knew they didn’t want to publicize anything about me.” Indeed, the cinematic genius showing just how Portman’s body was fused with dancing powerhouse Lane is well documented in the upcoming Black Swan DVD, due out next week. Another diss? Lane’s name also appears in the credits as an extra, not a dancing double. But why the need for a facade? If Natalie totally worked her butt off for the role (which everyone says she did), is it really necessary to make us believe that she mastered in a year what most ballerinas can’t even master after 10? She completely transformed herself, broken rib and all. For Sarah, this aspect was most disappointing, and she comments “how unfortunate it is that, as professional dancers, we work so hard, but people can actually believe that it’s easy enough to do it in a year. That’s the thing that bothered me the most.”
So, I’m not saying that Natalie Portman is an egotistical prima donna who would perpetuate a lie just so she could win and Oscar, but…oh, wait. Yes I am! Sorry about that.
Blake Lively was on set of Gossip Girl in Santa Monica yesterday, and since I don’t watch shows about pretty white people with problems, I’d like to point out that I beat The Superficial writer to these. Normally when Blake Lively pictures hit, an alarm goes off in his house and he slides down a pole to his laptop. I have the same pole in my house for Ashley Greene. True story.
Tammy Brook, Chris Brown’s publicist, must be some sort of atheist and racist who works undercover for the biased, evil media, because she felt the need to quit. Page Six reports:
Chris Brown lost his marbles on “GMA,” and now the hot-headed singer has lost his publicist. We hear that Brown’s spokeswoman, Tammy Brook, will no longer be representing him after the star trashed his GMA dressing room, smashed a window and left without his shirt from the morning talk show earlier this week. Sources close to the star tell us she and Brown have decided to end their relationship following his meltdown on “GMA.” Brook couldn’t be reached last night.
Man, a woman who would rather get unemployment than be around a psychotic woman beater. I think we can all agree that’s what just happened. I mean, she’d be better off representing an empty Coke can right now. At least the Coke can won’t punch her in the mouth when the maid doesn’t fold his socks in the special way he likes.
Jay Smooth has been one of my heroes for a while. This is one of the reasons why:
With Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner officially cast in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Superman: Man Of Steel, there is a possibility they might now shift their focus to casting someone who can act. Deadline reports:
….Legendary Pictures and director Zack Snyder are working on a villain for Superman: Man of Steel. I’m told there’s interest in Michael Shannon. Shannon is coming off a memorable first season in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, and he turned in a strong performance in Take Shelter, which Sony Pictures Classics acquired at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Neither the studio nor Shannon’s reps were helpful.
Michael Shannon is my favorite actor and kicks so much ass in everything that he is in, it’s hard to understand why is isn’t cast in everything. He could star in a movie called Michael Shannon Goes To Starbucks Then Turns Around And Goes Back Home Because He Forgot His Wallet, and I’d at least put it at the top of my Netflix queue.
How Michael Shannon wasn’t even nominated for an Oscar for Shotgun Stories (one of my favorite movies) is a tragedy worse than Japan. Mostly because Michael Shannon is playing me in a documentary about my life. You know, if I was white and had two brothers and lived on a farm. What, you think that means I’m jealous of my half-sister and half-brother? Well, one just recently had a baby. She takes it with her to go dress shopping for her junior prom. And I think the other one would eat a car if they put hot sauce on it. So, to answer your question, of course I am!
I still have no idea what this Red Nose thing is and how it’s supposed to help poor people, but that’s really beside the point because it gives Rosie Jones an excuse to do this. Katy Perry gets marks for originality (OMG, she put the red nose ON her nose! Can you even believe it?!), but Rosie Jones has better tits. And that’s pretty much all that matters to me. Oh, and who will win American Idol. Could it be that one dude with that one story? Or that one chick with that one thing that happened in her life? Or the minority who sings well? The suspense is too much!
