Jessica Chastain weds Italian count, chides paparazzi for 'intrusion'

Chastain confirmed the union in a tweet that also wagged a finger at the paparazzi for being so invasive and ignoring no-fly zones over the event.

The ceremony was held at the de Preposulo family's 17th-century estate north of Venice, the Los Angeles Times reported. The property has been part of his family's holdings since the 1800s, according to the newspaper. People magazine noted that a homegrown Prosecco di Villa Tiepolo Passi is also created on the premises.

People added that the 40-year-old actress has been dating her 34-year-old beau (who has noble Italian ancestry) since 2012.

Guests at the wedding included friends, family and a lot of Hollywood luminaries, including Chastain's "Interstellar" co-star Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman and "The Huntsman: Winter's War" co-star Emily Blunt.

"The Help" co-star Octavia Spencer sent congratulations along with a photo from the wedding via Instagram:

Congrats @jessicachastain @preposulo. I hate that I missed your big day, but know I couldn't be more thrilled for you!!!!

Chastain kept her relationship with Passi de Preposulo hush-hush for a long time, but she did note to "Extra" in 2013 that she was "very happy" with him. "It's a wonderful thing when a career does so well and your personal life goes so well," she added.

We wish them all the best and look forward to when the new couple releases official photos!
