Halle Berry marries Olivier Martinez in France

 

Halle Berry married her fiancé, French actor Olivier Martinez, in a weekend ceremony in a village church where princes are buried in France’s Burgundy region.

The owner of the Chateau de Vallery, where the couple stayed with their 60 guests, said on Sunday that the betrothal a day earlier ended with a dinner and an unusual fireworks display — of water, fire and snow — in the chateau gardens. A wedding cake followed.

Patrice Vansteenberghe said the actress — 46 and pregnant — and her 47-year-old husband “were very beautiful and very happy.”

More vows

Jimmy Kimmel’s days of bedtime canoodling with Ben Affleck may be over — the late night, 45, host wed Molly McNearney, 35, on Saturday in Ojai, Calif., his rep told People.

A host of the couple’s famous friends attended the weekend festivities, including Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski, Matt Damon and wife Luciana, Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux, and Howard Stern.

McNearney, a co-head writer on Jimmy Kimmel Live, wore a strapless white gown while Kimmel sported a traditional black tuxedo and bowtie.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
