The dress was created by Luigi Massi of Versace, but look closely: both the dress itself and the veil are adorned with drawings by Jolie’s six little ones.

Maddox and Pax also walked their mom down the aisle, while Zaharah and Vivienne served as flower girls. Shiloh and Knox? They were ring bearers.

Insiders confirm that the kids also helped their parents write their vows… and Pax baked the cake!

“It was important to use that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” Pitt and Jolie tell People. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”

Pitt simply donned a suit from his collection and jeweler Robert Procop designed the couple’s wedding bands.

Cheryl Cole & Jean-Bernard Fernandez Versini Relax in Provence

Posted by tom_walsh on: September 2nd, 2014 | General

Enjoying the newlywed life, Cheryl Cole and Jean-Bernard Fernandez Versini took a relaxing vacation in Provence, France over the weekend.

The darling couple kept it simple in casual attire as Jean celebrated his birthday with his new wife and took time to introduce her to his family.

In related news, there’s been a heated battle going on between Miss Cole and her former X-Factor co-judge Simon Cowell. After Simon made some pretty nasty comments about Cheryl’s weight, she was quick to fire back.

“I heard this rumor and I think a gentleman should never speak about a woman’s age or weight but that’s only if you’re educated on how to treat a woman” she told Yahoo.

“So, unlucky for him. And who listens to Simon Cowell these days anyway? Does anybody? I don’t listen to him anymore.”

“Foxcatcher” Drops New Teaser Trailer: Watch Here!

Posted by tom_walsh on: September 1st, 2014 | General

We’re used to seeing him as the lovable-yet-annoying paper manager in “The Office,” but Steve Carell shows his true range in the forthcoming flick “Foxcatcher.”

In the newly-released trailer, the “Incredible Burt Wonderstone” stud plays overzealous Olympic wrestling benefactor John Eleuthere du Pont, and he’s downright creepy.

Carell’s character explains, “Athletes need role models — like anyone, they need people to look up to. I want more than anything to win a gold medal, and we have someone who could do that, but there are some psychological issues that we need to take care of.”

“I am leading men. I am training them, I am teaching them, I am giving them a dream, and I am giving America hope,” he adds.

Check the trailer, which also stars Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Sienna Miller, and get excited because “Foxcatcher” is slated to hit theaters on November 14th.

Posted by tom_walsh on: September 1st, 2014 | General

With so many different blogs and other websites dedicated to health and wellness these days, it’s no wonder Gwyneth Paltrow accidentally snatched the moniker for her Goop column from another author.

According to a new lawsuit, Hunter College professor Charles Platkin was “grievously injured” when the “Shakespeare in Love” lady stole his trademarked name “The Diet Detective” and used it for her own e-commerce domain.

And though he reached out to Paltrow’s people over the phone and through email, they’re still using The Diet Detective in their weekly web newsletters.

Platkin claims he would have originally settled for an apology, but now that they’re giving him the runaround, he’s out for justice!
