Well, everybody, it finally happened. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went and got themselves hitched — according to noted scandal sheet the Associated Press — and they did it at their chateau in the South of France. Kudos to whichever tabloid reported at some point over the past nine years that they'd be getting married there. Of course, there have been reports that they'd be getting married pretty much everywhere on earth — and possibly in space — so someone had to be right at some point. According to the AP, Pitt and Jolie put a lot of work into making sure all of the Jolie-Pitt clan could take part. Elder sons Maddox and Pax walked Jolie down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne served as flower girls and Shiloh and Knox were ring-bearers. Local orphans looking to get in on the action showed up and tried to usher, hoping to land a more permanent position in the family, but were sadly turned away.
To celebrate this long-awaited joyous news, I'm trotting out an old standby from the early days of their relationship: the Aniston rejoinder. Here you go: Brad and Angelina tie the knot — and Jen is furious! Also, fun fact: that idyllic French property where they wed is also where they produce a line of rosé that's received some pretty decent reviews. So maybe they can write off the whole wedding as a business expense?
Clooney not having the best wedding prep experience
In less joyful matrimony news, Pitt pal George Clooney is reportedly having a heck of a tough time planning his own wedding with fiancée Amal Alamuddin. Among the chief sticking points, according to the National Enquirer? Worries over the guest list, a standoff on the prenup and their wedding planner just up and quitting. About that guest list: Apparently the unholy trinity of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston is causing headaches once again. Pitt was planning to attend solo, and Aniston has reportedly said she's coming, but now so is Jolie. "At first she was on the fence about going," a source says of Jolie. "But she quickly changed her mind after George told her that President Obama RSVP'd yes. George is extremely concerned that by inviting both these women, they'll undoubtedly try to upstage each other and in doing so take the spotlight off the bride."
Cox ready to be a mom again — with a little help
Courteney Cox is apparently cool with being a mom again, but with a few conditions, as the "Cougar Town" star and her fiancé, Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid, are reportedly on the search for a surrogate mother to carry a child for them, according to Star magazine. "They're already looking for someone who can do it," a source says. "At first he didn't want kids, but Johnny has spent so much time with [Cox's 10-year-old daughter] Coco that he's realized a massive part of him wants a child of his own." Not to put too fine a point on it, but the source also says that both Cox and McDaid "are obsessed with the idea."
Tom Hanks' rapper son
Well, this is embarrassing. Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson are reportedly mortified over the online antics of their 24-year-old son, Chester, and his rapper persona Chet Haze, according to Radar Online. "Chet's out of control on the Internet, and it's a huge embarrassment to Tom and Rita," a source says. "He talks tough street talk and raps about skipping classes to smoke pot. But behind his back people are laughing because they know he was raised in Brentwood with mega-wealthy parents." Chet, who reportedly doesn't have a steady job and still lives at home, recently posted an inflammatory video in which he berates women for getting "naked on Instagram" and "f---ing around" before blurting out, "I'm already drunk."
