Despite reports to the contrary, Leonardo DiCaprio did not miss the surprise wedding of longtime BFF Tobey Maguire. The top-secret ceremony between Spidey and his baby-mama Jennifer Meyer took place on Sept. 4 in Hawaii. The new Mrs. Maguire, who also happens to be daughter of Universal Studios head Ron Meyer) gave birth to their daughter Ruby nine months previous.
According to In Touch, Leo is tied up with his latest film “Body of Lies.” But he wasn’t too busy to attend Tobey and Jenn’s auspicious event. And an insider reveals that Leo may have even picked up some kicky new outfits for the occasion — spies caught him purchasing a car coat, hoodies, cargo pants, cords and more at a Melrose boutique in Hollywood.
Maybe Leo needed a little retail therapy — after all, this does mark the end of an era. Back in the day, young tomcats Tobey and Leo were inseparable — prowling Hollywood with their club-hopping compatriots, actor Lukas Haas, magician David Blaine, rapper Q-Tip, and onetime indie movie It-Boy, Harmony Korine. Goofy pranks, rampaging drug-crazed parties, womanizing and lousy tipping were allegedly some of this informal club’s credo. But with Tobey’s marriage and baby, the party is obviously long over. Can Leo’s Titanic commitment to some lovely lady be long off? Women want to know!
Brangelina play it up for the papsAngelina Jolie and Brad Pitt took a baby talk break on Monday to make an appearance at the 33rd American Film Festival in Deauville, France. But Us Weekly reports that their ultra-chic sashay into the Hotel Royal Barriere was really just a fancy do-over.
“They, in fact, got to the hotel hours earlier and had a rest before faking their grand entrance much later for the cameras,” according to Us Weekly’s unnamed source.
Apparently the power couple wanted to get ready for their close-up before facing the crowd of photogs. “When they had changed and smartened up they returned to a waiting car, which went round the block and then drove them back to the hotel, so that they could act as if they had just arrived,” the source told the magazine.
Right … as if they’re both not annoyingly attractive even when they don’t spiff up for the flashbulbs.
Paris 2.0 has same bugs as the early modelAfter her stint in the Pokey, Miss Hilton promised to show the world a whole new Paris. Not so, says National Enquirer’s Mike Walker. When the heirhead recently tried to schmooze up to former “O.C.” pal Mischa Barton, her old catty ways came back to the surface.
Walker’s source claims that Paris called Mischa to reunite over some dish. Paris “went into a rant about the mess Nicole Richie’s made of her life, how Britney Spears snubbed her — and that Lindsay Lohan’s white trash and destined to be dead soon.”
For her part, Mischa refrained from sharpening her own claws on her troubled peers and hung up on Paris, according to the N.E. story. That move earned her a top spot on Paris’s new bash list.

Actor/comedian Eddie Griffin is known for surprising crowds with his no holds bared stage act, but the tables turned last weekend at a Black Enterprise event. TMZ reveals that Griffin’s performance was cut short after magazine owner Earl Graves showed the not-so-funnyman the door due to his frequent use of the N-word. "We ... will not allow our culture to go backwards ... We will pay Mr. Griffin all that we owe him but we will not allow him to finish the show if that's the way he's going to talk," Graves announced. … Ryan Seacrest wasn’t the only celeb in the running to host this year’s Emmys. Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil reports Hugh Laurie, of grinchy “House” fame, almost spared viewers from yet another Seacrest gig. Ultimately the suits at Fox decided against Laurie, as “Seacrest would draw a larger TV audience and because viewers might be confused seeing Laurie in an unfamiliar role.” He’s British, you know.
