Wow, Stacy Keibler managed to achieve what has eluded so many of George Clooney’s ex-girlfriends: she actually got married. Not only did Stacy marry her first post-Clooney boyfriend, she did it within a year of her Clooney breakup! And the guy isn’t a loser either. Stacy Keibler married her boyfriend of about seven months yesterday in Mexico. The guy is Jared Pobre, and he’s being described as a “millionaire entrepreneur” (we talked about them when they first began dating last year). So, he’s not famous but he’s wealthy and they actually seem very happy together! So, congrats on the wedding!
Surprise! Stacy Keibler married tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre in an intimate sunset ceremony on a beach in Mexico on Saturday, PEOPLE has exclusively learned.
“My happiness is indescribable!” Keibler, 34, tells PEOPLE. “Marriage is the ultimate bond of love and friendship. It means putting all your faith and trust into a person that you can’t help but believe is your soul mate. Someone who has all of your best interests at heart; someone handpicked for you, to help you grow and be the best person that you can be. Jared is all of this for me.”
Although the small wedding was a joyful surprise for family members vacationing with the couple, Keibler and Pobre have been quietly planning the low-key celebration for several months.
“We both felt strongly that our ‘love day’ should be intimately special, and that’s exactly what it was,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “It was a blend of romance, tranquility, natural beauty, bonding and overwhelming love.”
Keibler, who amicably split from George Clooney early last summer, began dating Pobre, 39, in the fall. However, the two had been friends for over five years. An Orange County native, Pobre is the CEO of Future Ads, a private interactive firm he started in 2001. By 2009, it was one of the fastest-growing interactive companies in the country. This is the first marriage for both.
Jared is apparently 39 years old, just five years older than Stacy, which makes this one of the more age-appropriate relationships that I’ve heard about in a while. Two single, never-been-married people in their 30s who met, fell in love and got married within a year? And both have their own money? Sure, it’s a non-event, but it’s still pleasantly surprising. The statement Stacy released to People is kind of funny though – I mean, she seems like she’s in a love-haze, so bless her heart. My cynicism is showing, I know.
But I am sort of proud of Stacy… she’s a woman with completely reasonable life goals who doesn’t overreach. Remember when Sarah Larsen thought she could be a high-fashion model? Remember when Elisabetta Canalis thought she could be a legit Hollywood actress? Stacy never bought into the hype. She aimed for a career in reality/competitive TV, and that’s what she got. She wanted to get married and she didn’t wait for Clooney to come around, nor did she wait for someone famous to ask her. Stacy might end up to be the most accomplished of all of Clooney’s ex-girlfriends.

YES. THIS IS HAPPENING.
Your eyes are not playing tricks on you. This is not a hallucination. It’s game time, people! Benedict Cumberbatch covers this season’s issue of the New York Times’ T Style Magazine. The photoshoot is by Karim Sadli, and I swear Benedict looks like he’s 25 years old here. Is it just the hair? Is it airbrushing? Or is he just getting more beautiful year after year? Sigh… my love burns brightly for The Batch. I shall not lie about it, or play it cool. I would tear him up. Anyway, you can read the full NYT piece here, and here are some highlights:
He’s tired of talking about himself: “Why does anyone want to know my opinions? I’m not interested in reading my opinions.”
His looks: He says he looks like “Sid from ‘Ice Age’ ” and although he once declared that “I always seem to be cast as slightly wan, ethereal, troubled intellectuals or physically ambivalent bad lovers,” there are numerous websites devoted to the subject of his romantic prowess, e.g., “Benedict Cumberbatch — Fantastic Lover,” a compendium of clips set to Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On,” that has been viewed more than 490,000 times on YouTube.
His Time Magazine cover: “It’s one of the more bizarre levels of success,” he said. At first he thought it was fake. “Someone sent me a photograph of it and I thought, ‘Some fan has got hold of a photo and done one of those neat apps where they impose your head on something,’ ” he said.
After playing geniuses like Sherlock & Alan Turing, he says: “I am so ready to play a really dumb character.”
People obsessed with Sherlock: “I always make it clear that people who become obsessed with him or the idea of him — he’d destroy you,” Cumberbatch said cheerfully. “He is an absolute bastard.”
Holding up political signs while filming Sherlock: “These are very complex questions and very difficult arguments to be very clear about, so to ask the questions is to stimulate the debate,” he explained. He has not done it since, though, he said, “I felt really strongly about it at the time.”
Why he was in NYC: In New York he was visiting his friend Zachary Quinto, who acted alongside him in “Star Trek,” seeing some movies, going to some museums and trying to keep a low profile. He is currently unattached, and is gearing up for his next batch of work.
He didn’t like how his Star Trek character ended up: “That was a stupid thing to do,” Cumberbatch said, referring to Starfleet Command. “They should have just blown me up.”
Dealing with crowds and his fandom: “If you pick a point far behind them they perceive you as not seeing them, and you’re the obstacle they have to get around.” For a moment, he sounded positively Sherlockian. “There is a way of just shadowing through,” he continued. “The higher the walls, the more dark the windows, the bigger the sunglasses — the more people are going to look. The greatest disguise is learning how to be invisible in plain sight.”

Is this the best Cumberinterview ever? No, it’s not. They didn’t even ask him about all the times he’s nearly died, nor did they ask him about his beloved mother Wanda. NYT FAIL. Still, it’s nice to see him photographed beautifully and on the cover of a fashion-y magazine. Lovely, lovely Batch. One day, sir. One day you will be mine.

This story is a little bit dated, but many outlets are circulating it now, so we may as well join them. Most of you are aware that Jennifer Lawrence took a tumble on the Oscar red carpet. This was an unintended follow-up to last year’s cake-walk fall. Jennifer clearly tripped over a cone while waving to fans. She was not Katniss-ing us with an “aw shucks” media routine. JLaw was laying as low as possible this awards season. She was thrilled to lose the Best Supporting Actress category because she’s wary of the backlash that threatens to topple her “It Girl” status.
Jared Leto decided to make things a little harder for Jennifer. She had already been criticized (by many of you) for breaking script onstage while presenting the Best Actor award. Leto revealed to Access Hollywood that he and his family were the ones laughing at JLaw as she walked onstage. She should have ignored these heckling antics, but it was childish of Jared to behave that way. He was probably riding high on his win and decided it was safe to act douchey. He also “jokingly” told Access Hollywood that JLaw fell on purpose earlier that evening. Joke or not, I think it’s rude of him to feed a burgeoning backlash. Do you agree?
Jennifer Lawrence did not fail in being very Jennifer Lawrence-y at Sunday’s Oscars – and Jared Leto broke it all down for Access Hollywood.
When the actress hit the stage to present the Best Actor award, she went off script, looking into the crowd, saying, “Why are you laughing? What, is this funny? I’m still watching you!”
It turns out, the actress was talking to fellow Oscar winner Jared Leto, who was in the audience laughing with his family.
“She said, ‘What are you laughing at?’ But what she didn’t know was that Ellen was on the side…making, pantomiming [motions like], ‘Don’t fall, don’t fall,’ and my mom and my brother are all cracking up,” he explained.
“I guess we don’t have any manners,” he joked. “You can take them out of Louisiana but you can’t take Louisiana out of them, right?”
Jared also weighed in on Jennifer’s red carpet trip earlier on the Oscars red carpet, her second consecutive fall at the Oscars.
“You know, I’m starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act,” he joked with Billy Bush about the actress’ less-than-graceful red carpet moment.

Jared needs to count his blessings (and his scarves) and be very careful. He's not immune to backlash either. Now that Jared's an official Oscar darling, his own skeletons are bursting from the closet in the form of tabloid stories. Would it be rude of me to ask whether Jared's brilliant Oscar campaign was "a bit of an act" too? It's completely possible.
While we're talking about Jennifer, you should read this column that JLaw's civilian BFF, Laura Simpson, wrote after she attended the Oscars. She was the one whom Jennifer clutched as she ate red carpet. Bill Murray wanted to dance with Laura! I'm so jealous.

I’ve read most of the tabloids this week, and the Oscars gossip has been pretty dull. Miranda Kerr bitched about the porto-potty situation and Chelsea Handler cut in front of a line. Taylor Swift cuddled up to Jamie King at the VF party and Khloe Kardashian was in a terrible mood at the Elton John party. Jennifer Lawrence was carrying a Slim Jim and a protein bar in her clutch because of course she was. And that’s about it. Except that on Monday, when I was covering the party photos, I mentioned that the Sienna Miller photos were making me laugh because Sienna had that old-school look in her eye – part boredom, part liquor, part famewhore. It just seemed like she regretted partying with her boyfriend Tom Sturridge and she wished she could be a single girl, mixing it up with all the men. Star Magazine says she was pretty hammered all weekend too:
Sienna Miller did not take it slow on Oscars weekend. First, Star spotted a drunken Sienna devouring a stack of cucumber slices (they were supposed to be the garnish!) at the bar of the Weinstein party. The next night, Sienna clumsily cozied up to boyfriend Tom Sturridge at the Vanity Fair Oscars bash.
[From Star Magazine, print edition]
Bless her. Sienna always saves the party from being boring. You can always count on Sienna to, at the very least, get sh-tfaced and eat all of the cucumber garnish. Slow-clap.
Here are some photos of Sienna yesterday in Brentwood, going to the Country Mart on Thursday. You know who else goes there? Jennifer Garner. I’ve often thought that Sienna was trying to do the whole Organic Mother thing when she had baby Marlowe, but I don’t believe it stuck. The Old Sienna keeps coming back to get drunk at Oscar parties and gobble all the cucumbers. It’s who you are, Sienna! Embrace it!

Christian Bale’s wife Sibi was pregnant the whole way through the awards season! And we didn’t even Bump Watch her! My mind has been boggled. First of all… did you know Sibi’s real name is Sandra? I never knew that. Everyone always refers to her as Sibi, she’s always labeled as Sibi in photos and articles, so I guess I’ve never questioned it. Anyway, Sibi and Christian are expecting their second child. They are already parents to nine-year-old daughter Emmeline Bale. I also didn’t know their daughter’s name! Emmeline is barely photographed (even before Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s No Kids Pledge) but Christian does talk about her in interviews and such. You can tell he loves his daughter very much and he seems very involved. So much so that I’ve always kind of wondered why Christian and Sibi didn’t have more kids. Not that it’s any of my business, of course, but I’m glad to see that they’re going for another one:
There’s another baby on the way for Christian Bale and wife Sandra “Sibi” Bale. The couple are expecting their second child, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The notoriously private couple, who have been married for 14 years, are already parents to a daughter, who will turn 9 this month.
Bale’s rep had no comment.
“It’s all about my girls, my wife and my daughter. I carry a picture of them with me all the time,” Bale, 40, said about his two girls in 2009.
Sibi, 43, debuted her baby belly last Sunday on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, where her husband was nominated for Best Actor for American Hustle, which also scored nine other nominations including Best Picture.
Gotta love when People Magazine manages to get a hard confirmation but then they add “Bale’s rep had no comment.” That’s a pretty typical Hollywood move. But I do have to give Christian some credit – he managed to go through the entire awards season in the most low-key way, showing up to every event with his wife but barely doing any press. I even talked about it a few weeks before the Oscars – I was surprised that Bale didn’t seem to be waging any kind of campaign at all, which was particularly weird because he was literally the best part of American Hustle. I mean, if Matthew McConaughey’s wife had been pregnant during the awards season, we would have had interview after interview about it and Matthew would have been working “MAN MAKES BABY, my wife is pregnant! Alright alright alright” into every speech.
Anyway, congrats to Sibi and Christian!

Welcome to this week’s installment of The Most Important People on The Internet which for those of you joining us for the first time after Googling “Jennette McCurdy Nude” (Congratulations, you’ve been disappointed and put in a federal database.), this is where I highlight the comments that somehow managed to make me, a joyless, dead-inside publisher of celebrity tits chuckle. On that note, we have a strong showing this week including The Pope‘s comment below which would get mangled in our gallery setup but demands to be seen. Mostly because it’s blasphemous as shit, but there’s also a butt, so it hits all four quadrants. Enjoy:
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, “You promised me, Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I stopped to check out your ass and masturbate. I can’t do that and walk at the same time.”
Said The Pope on The Crap We Missed – Friday 3.7.14
Welcome to Friday’s The Crap We Missed with a very special Final Five courtesy of Victoria Silvstedt (That pic’s a bonus, because c’mon, really?) who knows that you have to keep the inventory in top shape if you want to move product. From there we get right into Lindsay Lohan in the ultimate blow job caption opportunity, Bruce Willis on the thought of being 91 at his kid’s high school graduation, and Ben Affleck because he’s the hero Golden Corral needs right now.

So remember when Matthew McConaughey was all awesome being badass, atheist detective Rust Cohle on True Detective, and then while winning an award for playing a hard-fucking cowboy he thanked God in his speech? Well, here he is doing a cooking segment for his just keep livin Foundation with Guy Fieri because the universe is a flat circle sphincter that shits all over everything I love. What did Matthew McConaughey ever do to you? Not counting every movie he made between 2001 to 2009. Magic Mike atoned for that. IT ATONED!
It’s been about two hours since the Ireland Baldwin post went up, and for the record, I haven’t been spending that time picking out wedding cakes (That’s tomorrow.) but instead watching my driveway turn into an episode of COPS. So to make up for me cowering in my other neighbor’s house like the manly man I am, here’s Hilary Duff looking hot as shit in leather pants while I get ready to punt a Matthew McConaughey post so I can lay down in my bathtub with a football helmet on for the rest of the weekend. Ladies?
