Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney are married



Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Maroney!

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney tied the knot in front of family and friends on Saturday at the Belcourt of Newport in Newport, Rhode Island, People has confirmed. The outlet also reported that Lawrence wore a Dior wedding dress.

The glitzy guest list included Adele, Ashley Olsen, Emma Stone, Kris Jenner, and Amy Schumer, according to People, and at Friday’s rehearsal dinner, stars like Cameron Diaz and Nicole Ritchie enjoyed a clambake.

The historic mansion was inspired by Louis XIII’s hunting lodge at Versailles. TMZ reported the pair hired wedding planner Mark Seed for the affair with 150 people reportedly in attendance. Guests were treated to an extravagant menu, including wood-roasted fish with herbs and lemon-infused butter or five-week-aged leg of beef with forager’s sauce for their entree. As for dessert, house-made marshmallow s’mores were reportedly on the menu.

Lawrence’s wedding venue was rumored to be haunted at one point with ghost and murder mystery tours being offered years ago. The chateau was purchased in 2012 by Alex and Ani founder Carolyn Rafaelian who renovated and cleansed the property. “There were energies and entities, some not pleasant. I had a shaman perform ceremonies. We did a major cleansing, energy-wise. There was a lot of heaviness, but we took care of that. Now the house has a different vibration,” she told the New York Times in 2013.

The nuptials come one month after the Oscar-winning actress, 29, and her art dealer beau, 34, were spotted at New York City’s marriage bureau. It’s unclear if Lawrence and Maroney, who had famed photographer Mark Seliger in tow, legally wed during the September outing or simply obtained their marriage license. Page Six reported the couple’s entourage also included two security guards and a friend. Regardless, it was always Lawrence’s plan to have a large wedding celebration.

During a chat on the Naked with Catt Sadler podcast a few months ago, the Silver Linings Playbook star said she was pretty relaxed about planning her wedding. “I’ve been in a good place. I haven’t been neurotic about it. I’m, like, too lazy to be neurotic,” Lawrence quipped. “I saw a dress I liked, I was like, ‘That’s the dress.’ I saw a venue, I was like, ‘Cool, we got the venue.'”

Lawrence and Maroney, who were first linked in June 2018, got engaged at the beginning of the year. “He’s the greatest human being I’ve ever met,” Lawrence gushed to Sadler. “He really is, and he gets better.”

“I don’t know, I started with the basics,” Lawrence replied when asked why she chose to marry him. “‘How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?’ It’s just — this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he’s just, he’s — you know. He’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney.”

She added, “I definitely wasn’t at a place where I was like, ‘I’m ready to get married.’ I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other. We wanted to commit fully.”

Lawrence said she plans to legally change her name.

“He’s my best friend, so I want to legally bind him to me forever. And fortunately, the paperwork exists for such a thing! It’s the greatest. You find your favorite person on the planet and you’re like, ‘You can’t leave,'” she laughed. “So I wanted to take up on that offer.”

This is the first marriage for both Lawrence and Maroney.

Eva Longoria Opens Up About Increased ‘Amount Of Anxiety’ Since Becoming A Mom



After giving birth, a lot of women are eager to get back into the gym, but Eva Longoria was just focused on giving back!

While chatting with reporters at the Eva Longoria Foundation Gala on Friday, the Desperate Housewives alum revealed how her mindset has shifted since welcoming her son Santiago last June with husband José Bastón.

Per Us Weekly, the 44-year-old shared:

“The one thing I did not expect when Santi was born was the amount of anxiety I was going to have about the world. Like, everything affects me now: the news, articles and climate change. Everything scares me, and my anxiety has just gone through the roof going, ‘Oh, my God, I have a better place!’ So, it’s made my philanthropic work more intense.”

She continued:

“It brought an insane intensity. I’m like, ‘We have to save the world! Oh, my God!’ I didn’t expect that. Of course, I do charity work and I do philanthropies, but now it just means so much more.”

Longoria shut down the idea that this new mindset is “debilitating,” and noting that it has been “healing” for her. She admitted (below):

“Sometimes the world’s issues are so big you feel paralyzed. But I think that’s the misconception is that you have to be rich and famous to do something. And for me, every single person can do something. Like recycling or doing a charity event like this. There’s many levels of helping and doing, and so yeah, it’s sometimes overwhelming and paralyzing at the thought, but once you start doing, it’s easy.”

In 2012, the Dora and the Lost City Of Gold star established her foundation to empower the Latino community through entrepreneurship and education resources. While the actress has been focused on her philanthropic efforts in recent years, something she wasn’t too focused on in the past was becoming a mother. Shortly after the news broke of her pregnancy, a source shared with People:

“She loves kids, but it’s not something she focused on.”

But what made Eva change her mind? The confidant elaborated:

“Meeting Pepe and becoming a stepmom made her more open to the idea… She loves his kids and now they’re really excited to be expanding the family.”

And we’re so glad she became open to the idea! Her little boy is the sweetest!!

Prince Andrew talks Jeffrey Epstein friendship in BBC interview



After denying that he had a relationship with one of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged “sex slaves” when she was 17, Britain’s Prince Andrew sat down with the BBC to share his memory – or lack thereof – of meeting accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

During the taped interview that aired Saturday, the royal said he has “no recollection” of the photo of him and Giuffre being taken. The picture shows Andrew with his arm around Giuffre at the London home of Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s alleged “recruiter,” who is seen in the background.  

Shocking headlines – and pictures – popped up in January 2015 when Giuffre, 35, alleged in court documents that she was groomed by Epstein and his associates to sexually service Epstein’s powerful friends when she was a teenager. 

She asserted she was compelled to have sex with Andrew three times, in New York, the U.S. Virgin Islands and in London, starting when she was 17. At the time, Buckingham Palace issued multiple emphatic statements denying Andrew had any relationship or sexual contact with Giuffre.

“I take very, very few photographs. I am not one to, as it were, hug, and public displays of affection are not something that I do,” Andrew told BBC reporter Emily Maitlis. “So that’s the best explanation I can give you and I’m afraid to say that I don’t believe that photograph was taken in the way that has been suggested.”

Later in 2015, a federal judge in Florida called Giuffre’s claims “immaterial” and irrelevant to the case at issue and threw them out. But when Epstein was arrested this summer and charged with new sex crimes, Giuffre’s allegations surged back into headlines. And the palace again issued statements rejecting her claims. 

During the interview, Andrew maintained his denial of having sex with Giuffre. He also denied dining and dancing with her in March 2001, saying he was instead at home with his children. 

“I was at home, I was with the children and I’d taken Beatrice to a Pizza Express in Woking for a party at I suppose sort of 4 or 5 in the afternoon,” he said. “And then because the Duchess was away, we have a simple rule in the family that when one is away the other one is there.”
