Brad & Angelina finally tied the knot… but why did they bother?
I once met Brad not too long ago and was in awe. It wasn’t because he was Brad Pitt. It was because he was a humble man who was just plain kind. Like everyone else, I wish him and Angelina a lifetime of love and happiness following their recent nuptials. To them, though, it’s probably anti-climactic. Let’s not forget Brad’s interview years ago when he confessed his heart was yearning for a house full of kids. But he already had that … happiness, lots of kids, a woman he admired and adored, and the committment he desired. So, what prompted him to finally get married?
When Brad and Angelina started living together, they believed a little piece of paper wasn’t needed to prove to the world they were happy and going to be together forever. However, many children and one serious health scare later, now the couple is married. They also stated publicly that they would not marry until everyone else in our country could also legally do so, throwing their mega-watt star power behind the national campaign for LGBT marriage rights. But now they’ve walked down the aisle anyway. So, what happened?
Well, Brad has stated in interviews that little people in their lives (a.k.a. their kids) were laying on the pressure and questioning their state of matrimony. Brad and Angelina decided to make their love legal and, impressively, even managed to keep it a secret for a few days. Though the couple initially believed that a piece of paper had no real value in regard to the strength of their love, it turns out that their kids feel that piece of paper means something more. To children, that piece of paper symbols a lifetime of commitment and security for them to have a married mom and dad. However naive and romantic that might seem to us adults.
So, are Brad and Angelina more committed now that they are married? I believe so, for the following reasons:

According to the Associated Press, Brat Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally tied the knot after years of the press wondering if and when they would.
According to a spokesman for the couple, they wed on Saturday in Correns in France in a private ceremony. The wedding was attended by family and friends in a small chapel at the Chateau Miraval, which is a wine chateau that the couple own. Before the wedding, they obtained a marriage license in California from a judge who flew to France to conduct the ceremony.
According to the AP, the couple’s children had roles in the wedding. Jolie walked down the aisle with her sons Maddox and Pax, while Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers. The couple were engaged back in 2012, and often said that they wouldn’t get married until gay marriage was legal. But after the engagement news broke, Pitt said they were doing it for their kids.
“We’d actually like to [get married] and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment. I’m not going to go any further. But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”
This is the third marriage for Jolie, who was married to actor Jonny Lee Miller (actor from the show “Elementary”) in the late ’90s and actor Billy Bob Thornton for three years before divorcing in 2003. This is the second marriage for Pitt, who we all know was married to Jennifer Aniston from 2000 to 2005. Pitt met Jolie while still married to Aniston when they came together to film Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
Congratulations to the couple and their family!
These celebrities made a lot of money entertaining masses but before they had millions in the bank, they found employment at a fast food eatery.
As the “Desperate Housewives’” Gabby Solis, Eva Longoria played a former model turned homemaker who wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anything off of the racks. But before she headed to Hollywood, Longoria worked for six years at a Wendy’s restaurant in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. She used part of her hard-earned money to pay for her own quinceañara and to help cover some of the cost of cheerleading in high school.
Some stars have a reputation of being a tight wad when it comes to money even though they have more than enough of it. But these stars are quite to opposite and don’t mind sharing the wealth when it comes to leaving a tip. Check out this list of celebs who tip well… very well.

There’s nothing sexier than a man taking care of his children and in honor of Father’s Day, we take a look at some of the sexiest celebrity dads in Hollywood.
We fell in love with him even though he played the cold-blooded killer and drug kingpin Stringer Bell in the widely popular HBO series “The Wire.” But the role forced him to hide his accent and once fans found out that Idris Elba was really an English actor, he became even sexier. After starring in a few moves, Elba went back to his television roots and starred in the BBC One series “Luther.” Elba will be celebrating his first Father’s Day this year. A few months ago he and his girlfriend Niayana Garth welcomed their first child, Winston.

Perhaps best known as magneto in the blockbuster franchise X-Men, Michael Fassbender knew he wanted to be an actor since he was 17 years old.

There’s cheating and then there’s cheating. While it’s always wrong to dip out on a spouse or partner, these celebrity cheaters were especially wrong for betraying women who gave them their hearts and in some cases other vital organs!
Viewers watched a romance blossom between shop owner Ceaser and his tattoo artist Dutchess on VH1’s “Black Ink.” By the end of the first season, they were officially a couple, but then viewers also watched their union fracture and by the time the third season rolled around, Cease was dipping out on Dutchess, who revealed during season two that she suffered from a serious heart condition. Duchess found out about her man’s infidelity when the other woman left her an email. Dutchess called her and the two were on the phone together for over five hours. Cease was ceremoniously kicked out of their apartment.

Today People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, Adam Levine, turns the big 3-5, and we don’t know about you, but that was a big shock to us. The Maroon 5 singer honestly doesn’t look a day over 30, which got us to thinking about all the other white men debunking the myth that only black doesn’t crack. Are you shocked at how old some of the following stars are?
Thirty five years ago, Fred and Patsy Levine gave birth to the singing sensation known as Adam Levine. We’d say he owes them a big thank you for passing down those youthful genes.
While most people look at unibrows and think, Where is some wax when you need it?, for others, including in a few different countries, unibrows are deemed sexually attractive, especially on women. Seriously! They’re so fabulous that women without unibrows find themselves drawing them on with a liner. These people are not alone. When it comes to the unibrow, or the monobrow for the following famous folks, it’s something that comes with no stigma and that they’ve rocked or been known for at one time or another.
J. Cole has never been one to care too much about what people think about his appearance (“Crooked Smile” anyone?). So while other rappers might want to wax away or pluck out a unibrow they think might not help them get the ladies, Cole has no problems with keeping it confidently bushy.
