Mark Wahlberg Married Rhea Durham over the weekend

Congratulations to Mark Wahlberg who wed his long-term girlfriend, Rhea Durham, the pair finally tied the knot this weekend in an intimate ceremony in Beverly Hills. The eternal bachelor, whose bad-boy antics inspired hit TV show Entourage, of which he is executive producer, finally said ‘I do’ to the mother of his three children, with 5-year-old Ella Rae, three-year-old Michael, and 10-month-old Brendan Joseph, as well as just 12 close family members and friends, in attendance. The bride wore a strapless Marchesa gown, while Mark was dressed in a dark suit and lavender tie.

Meanwhile, closer to home, Rachel Stevens yesterday married boyfriend Alex Bourne in a glitzy ceremony at London’s Claridge’s hotel. ‘I’m going all out, a meringue dress. I’m so excited,’ she told reporters before the event.

Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno

Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno

Enough already Sacha Baron Cohen! Not content with his Bruno antics we hear he will play a spoof European pop star in his next movie. The actor is set to portray a singer who enters the Eurovision Song Contest. Cohen originally planned to resurrect the character from his current hit film ‘Bruno’ – in which he plays a gay Austrian fashion of the same name – but he and his writing partner Dan Mazer decided against it.

A source said: “He and Dan thought it would be better if Sacha dreamt up another character, and the scope for another oddball creation is huge.” The movie is expected to be another fake documentary in the style of ‘Bruno’ and ‘Borat…’ The script is ready and the as-yet untitled film is expected to be released in 2011. Meanwhile, Cohen has agreed to play Spanish twins in new movie ‘Downsizing’. The 37-year-old actor will portray two brothers who are identical apart from their height in the film, which also stars Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep. According to reports, Cohen - who is engaged to Australian actress Isla Fisher, with whom he has a 22-month-old daughter Olive – is being paid around $7 million for the movie.
