Actor Josh Lucas is a married man after secretly exchanging vows with his fiancée.

The Sweet Home Alabama star wed his longtime girlfriend Jessica on Friday.

Few details about the ceremony were available as WENN went to press, but the actor's representative has since confirmed the news to TooFab.com.

Lucas, who was previously linked to actresses Rachel McAdams and Salma Hayek, has remained notoriously mum about his private life, only revealing news of the couple's engagement during a TV appearance on The Tonight Show back in January.

My 10 Celebrity Valentines For 2012

Valentine's Day is almost upon us. I don't have a valentine this year, but I'd like to give a few out to 10 celebs whose work I have particular affection for.

1. Adam Levine

My favorite The Voice coach is someone I'll always admire, and deservedly so: he has more hardware than a Home Depot. This past year alone, he and Maroon 5 scored their first American Music Award, a People's Choice Award and a Grammy nomination. I totally concur with my friend Jesse Blaze Snider, who referred to them as a band "with three near-perfect albums." (And a fourth on the way, reportedly due in June.)

Josh Lucas Felt
Sweet Home Alabama star Josh Lucas has been left scarred by sex scenes in his new movie after spending a day with nine naked women he'd never met. The actor had to simulate sex for montage footage at the beginning of Death In Love and admits the seedy scenes left him feeling dirty and "strange".

Lucas, who plays a con man who craves crazy sex in the film, tells WENN, "One of the weirdest days of my life was the day my character put an ad on CraigsList for 20 women from the ages of 19-65 for the sex montage scene. I filmed nine very hardcore sex simulation scenes with women I never met wi...

Sister Spotlight: Elle And Dakota Fanning

January 21st, 2009 12:36pm EST
Fanning Sisters
The Fanning family is lucky. They have two pretty young girls, both are established or establishing themselves as respected actresses in an age when tween sexpots sell, and have managed to stay out of the unflattering light of Hollywood - thus far. Two talented daughters, bound to make large amounts of money due to their talent, must deal with the downfalls of normal child stardom. For those who are only familiar with Dakota Fanning, she has a younger sister, Elle, who is fast becoming just as well known as her sister. Let's investigate this perfect storm of child actors done right, and wha...

The Best & Worst Reese Witherspoon Films

Reese Witherspoon
Even Oscar winning actresses like Reese Witherspoon have made a few films that aren't worth seeing. Reese is adorable, bubbly and likeable as an actress and as a person. She's probably best known for her role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde because no one could have played that part better than she did. However, there were a few stale moments in her career where her movies failed to leave a mark in Hollywood.


Just Like Heaven- This 2005 film co-starring Mark Ruffalo was so far fetched it was even hard to believe as a movie. Reese played a doctor who went into a coma afte...

Actor Ethan Embry has agreed to pay a hefty settlement to a model he left scarred after a motorcycle accident in 2005. Glamour girl Angelina Roudeva sued the Sweet Home Alabama star last year after he allegedly left her by the side of the road after she was thrown from his motorcycle.

Roudeva, who now appears on hit gameshow "Deal Or No Deal," claimed Embry refused to call for medical help immediately after the accident and instead attempted to 'treat' her in his bathtub with cold water and alcohol.

The actor agreed to settle on Wednesday, the same day the case was set to go to ...

Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon purged her wardrobe and turned over a new fashion leaf after ending her marriage to Ryan Phillippe last year.

The 30-year-old decided to get rid of anything that wasn't working in her for her and had a massive closet cleaning session.

In her first interview since the split, Witherspoon told Harper's Bazaar magazine, "I recently put a big pile of clothes on the floor of my closet and I looked at a lot of the stuff and thought, 'That's not me at all. What was I thinking?' I went through a pink phase (for Legally Blonde) like you wouldn't believe. Then ...

Sweet Home Alabama star Ethan Embry's Studio City, Los Angeles, home became the scene of a crime on Sunday night when the actor and a friend were mugged at gunpoint in his driveway.

Movie Star Josh Lucas hopes he never has to film another adventure movie like Poseidon because the shoot left him injured and in immense pain.

The Sweet Home Alabama star felt sure the experience of filming with director Wolfgang Petersen would be a challenge, but he had no idea what he'd be expected to do in the deep sea disaster remake.

Lucas tore a muscle in his hand during one stunt and had to wear a splint to ease the pain - and that was just the start of his troubles.

He recalls, "The muscle actually rolled back up into my thumb and they had to put in two inch slits on ...
