Reese Witherspoon Ties the Knot
Reese Witherspoon has walked down the aisle for the second time. The Academy Award winner married entertainment agent Jim Toth on Saturday at her home in Ojai Valley, California. The event started with pre-wedding cocktails and was followed by a 20-minute ceremony. Witherspoon two children attended, as did Renée Zellweger, Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr., Isla Fisher, Sacha Baron Cohen, Alyssa Milano, and Matthew McConaughey. Toth and Witherspoon have been dating for over a year and got engaged three months ago. [People]
Super Glue Inventor Dies
The man who gave the world a quick and easy way to glue any two items together has passed away. Dr. Harry Coover invented the powerful adhesive Super Glue in 1951. The invention was a happy accident, the result of Coover “experimenting with acrylates for use in clear plastic gun-sights during World War II.” At the time Coover was working at Eastman Kodak’s laboratory in Tennessee testing compounds to use as “a temperature-resistant coating for jet cockpits.” One such compound caused his equipment to fuse together. Coover tinkered with the compound, known as a cyanoacrylate, and seven years later launched Super Glue. Strangely, Super Glue did not make Coover a rich man as it was not a commercial success until after his patent expired. Coover held 460 patents by the end of his life and died of congestive heart failure at his home in Tennessee. He was 94. [New York Times]
Rick Ross Gets Arrested
According to reports, Miami rapper Rick Ross was arrested in Louisiana late Friday on a marijuana possession charge. A police spokesman stated that Ross was issued a misdemeanor summons and instantly released after the arrest. The rapper was apparently arrested after police responded to a complaint about the smell of marijuana at a Hilton Hotel. Police confiscated 1 gram of what investigators believed to be marijuana. I’m sure this recent Ross road tale will make for a snazzy new hip-hop tune. [TMZ]
New Scarface Limited Edition Blu-ray Will Cost Fans $999.99. Seriously.
On Sept. 6, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will release a limited edition version of the cocaine classic Scarface for almost $1,000. Yes, $1,000. The insanely-priced package will include a documentary on the film’s effect on pop culture, a scorecard feature that keeps track of the number of F-bombs and bullets spit out, a digital copy of the movie, a copy of the original 1932 black and white classic, and a new edition of Scarface that comes with a hand-painted humidor crafted out of untreated Spanish cedar. Unfortunately, no cocaine will be making its way into the set. Only 1,000 copies have been made, so act fast if you wanna get your paws on it, people. [THR]
