Las Vegas is best known for welcoming wild times, and that includes weddings! Thanks to Nevada's easy marriage laws and the city's abundance of "quickie" chapels, it's been a hot spot for celebrity nuptials. While some marriages — like Angelina Jolie's elopement with Billy Bob Thorton and Cindy Crawford's union to Richard Gere — have come and gone, others, like Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos's marriage, have weathered the test of time. Click through to see all the stars who have gotten hitched in Vegas, and don't forget to check out all of POPSUGAR's wedding season coverage!
Edward and Bella's honeymoon is one scene we'd like to get extended now that Breaking Dawn is officially being broken into two parts, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz show off some fancy soccer footwork, and Jane Lynch honeymoons in Monte Carlo!

And then there were three. Back in May I asked you all who you would choose to play Frank Sinatra in the upcoming biopic, and Martin Scorsese reportedly has narrowed it down to Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, and George Clooney. Apparently Scorsese's first choice is his muse DiCaprio, while Universal Pictures would like to see Depp in the role.
As for Clooney — he's the top pick for Tina Sinatra, who would like the movie to focus more on the more charming side of her father's personality rather than the more gritty aspects of his life. Rest assured that whoever snags the role won't have to sing — the music will feature Sinatra's original voice. So between these three guys, tell me — who should play Frank Sinatra in Martin Scorsese's biopic?
Buzz In: Who Should Play Frank Sinatra in Scorsese's Biopic? Who better to direct a biopic about the famous blue-eyed Italian-American entertainer Frank Sinatra than Martin Scorsese? This is the kind of movie news that's so "just right" it makes me wonder why it hasn't happened before.
Who better to direct a biopic about the famous blue-eyed Italian-American entertainer Frank Sinatra than Martin Scorsese? This is the kind of movie news that's so "just right" it makes me wonder why it hasn't happened before. Here's more on the project, titled simply, Sinatra:
The deal comes after years of negotiations with Frank Sinatra Enterprises, a joint venture of the crooner's estate and Warner Music Group. One major obstacle was the internal politics of the estate, where family members had to come to consensus on how to tell the story and, more importantly, just how much of the story to tell.
Raised during the Depression, [Sinatra] built a singing career that weathered many changes in popular culture, all while he racked up 31 gold records and countless other honors. He also had a successful career as an actor, proving naysayers wrong by earning an Oscar for From Here to Eternity. His personal life was just as eventful. He suffered from depression and a bipolar disorder, was alleged to have connections to organized crime and was married four times, including to actresses Ava Gardner and Mia Farrow.
Now the big question remains: What modern-day actor can appropriately portray Sinatra, one of America's most famous singers? Who's got the charm and presence, a bit of an edge at times, and most of all, those mesmerizing eyes? Who would you cast?
Listening to a new Fiona Apple song feels like getting a drop of water after a long time in the desert. I so enjoy her unique voice and I miss it during the long breaks she tends to take between albums. That's why I was so excited to come across a recording of her singing the Cy Coleman song "Why Try to Change Me Now?"
I've heard Frank Sinatra's whimsical version of this old jazz standard, and it's great. Not surprisingly, Apple's take on the song is more melancholy than Sinatra's and completely lovely. I'd like to add this single to my MP3 collection, but it's not available on iTunes just yet (it will be included on a CD titled Then Was Then and Now Is Now: A Tribute to Cy Coleman).
I'll keep my eye out for when this single is available to purchase, and in the meantime you can take a listen if you read more
Welcome to another one of my Buzz Gift Guides for all the entertainment lovers in your life. Yesterday I tackled gifts for moms and today I've got some ideas for the original special fellow in your life: Dad.
I know a lot of dads (not just my own) who were sad to see HBO's mobster hit The Sopranos end, so I was delighted to find a whole collection of wines inspired by the show. You can choose from an old school Chianti called "Uncle Junior's Wine" and a Pinot Grigio inspired by Carmella ("light but tasty enough for a strong woman"), among others. If your dad's a fan of the show he'll probably get a kick out of these.
If your dad's a music lover he might enjoy this CD and DVD box set of Frank Sinatra singin' his hits in Vegas, a collection of Louis Armstrong's Christmas tunes, or Martin Scorsese's rock doc chronicling two Rolling Stones concerts, Shine a Light.
Of course, many dads would be thrilled to get this humongous set of James Bond films on DVD. And finally, while it's not exactly my favorite series, my dad really does think Two and a Half Men is one of the funniest shows on TV, so I'll be picking up the fourth season on DVD for his collection this year.
