25 Stars You Had No Idea Got Married In Secret

It’s the great irony of weddings. Though technically, the betrothed couple is entitled to get married their way, it’s hard to keep others from asserting themselves into the big day. It goes double for celebrities who can’t even go to a restaurant without someone bothering them.

Unfortunately, it’s the intimate moments that make for paparazzi gold. If the star is big enough, their celebrity wedding is practically a national holiday. Every so often, a star will manage to keep their wedding on the DL. It requires strategy and careful planning, and it doesn’t stay secret for long. But if a Hollywood power couple can score a few hours of scrutiny-free matrimony, more power to them.

The stars on this list all did the impossible. Keeping the paparazzi away wasn’t the only motivation for some of these celebrity couples to get married on the sly. In some cases, they didn’t want their parents there either. Others just wanted to sign the paperwork without a big to-do. Stars who have been divorced often go smaller-scale for their second wedding. It’s quite an accomplishment when a star manages to announce their marriage on their own terms (which usually means a cheeky Instagram post).

15 Shocking Things You Didn’t Know About X-Men: The Last Stand

x-men-the-last-standThe X-Men franchise revolutionized the superhero film. Before the beloved Marvel characters came to the big screen, there wasn’t much in the way of pathos in superhero films. That all changed when director Bryan Singer took a shine to the civil rights analogies inherent in the X-Men universe.

Singer took the story deeper into the xenophobia realm with X-2, dealing with Stryker and Magneto’s genocidal absolutism vs. Xavier’s desire to find the middle ground. At the time, the complex social commentary was unparalleled in the genre. The studio clamored for a third installment of the series with Singer at the helm. But when Singer got a better offer to cross the cinematic aisle to a DC film, X-Men: The Last Stand was left without a director.

Eventually, the studio hired Rush Hour director, Brett Ratner. Fox has since produced plenty of successful reboots since and the franchise is still going strong over a decade later, but X-Men: The Last Stand remains a blight on the franchise.

The entire production process was fraught with strife and drama. In the end, it was an awful lot of trouble for a film that would be forgettable if it weren’t so memorably awful.
