Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Got Married But Her Dad Wasn't There
BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE pulled a fast one on the media and pretty much EVERYONE by getting married last Saturday in France. Their rep made the announcement yesterday.
It's amazing that they were able to keep it under wraps . . . especially considering how obsessed the media is with their status . . . so now everyone is playing catch-up. Here's what we know:
It happened at an estate Brad and Angelina own in Correns, France, which is probably the main reason they were able to keep it so secret. And it was a short "nondenominational civil ceremony conducted by a California judge."
There were only about 22 friends and family members there . . . although Angelina's father JON VOIGHT was NOT there. He gets to see the kids from time to time, but he's been trying to be a bigger part of Angelina's life. Clearly that's not working out.
He only found out yesterday after the news hit the Internet. He said, "It seems like it was very nice . . . and with all of the kids involved, it must have been a lot of fun and very beautiful. I'm happy for them."
He told a British tabloid that he's on his way to Europe to spend time with Angelina, Brad and the kids. As for missing the wedding, he chalked it up to a timing issue, since he had to be in the States for Monday's "Emmys".
Brad and Angelina read handwritten vows, and all six of their kids were involved in the ceremony. Angelina walked down the aisle with Maddox and Pax, Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.
Angelina wore a plain white floor-length antique lace and silk wedding dress with a veil . . . Brad wore a cream linen suit . . . the boys wore matching cream suits . . . and apparently the girls each had a dress made to match their individual style.
Brad and Angelina got engaged in 2012. This is Brad's second marriage, obviously. He married Jennifer Aniston in 2000, then dumped her in 2005 for Angelina.
This is Angelina's THIRD marriage. She was married to Jonny Lee Miller from "Elementary" from 1996 to 1999 . . . and then to Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003. So this is her first marriage to someone who only goes by two names.
It doesn't sound like they'll enjoy much of a honeymoon . . . apparently they've gone right to work on "By the Sea", the movie they're doing together in Malta.

Joan Rivers is in Critical Condition After She Stopped Breathing During Surgery on Her Vocal Cords
JOAN RIVERS is in critical but stable condition at a New York City hospital after she stopped breathing during surgery on her vocal cords, and went into cardiac arrest.
It happened at an outpatient clinic while doctors were putting a scope down her throat. She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital.
She was sedated at the time, and it's not clear what drugs were used. Now she's been placed in a medically-induced coma, and they're going to take her out of it this weekend to assess the damage.
Her daughter MELISSA issued a statement saying, quote, "I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers."
Joan had just performed in New York the night before, and witnesses say she didn't show signs of any health problems . . . although she did joke about her age.
She said, quote, "I'm 81 . . . I could go at any moment. I could fall over right here and you all could say, 'I was there!'"
Blake Lively Got Attacked by Bees the Day Before Her Birthday
BLAKE LIVELY turned 27 on Monday, and she celebrated by nursing MULTIPLE BEE STINGS. Blake got SWARMED during a photo shoot on Sunday, and wrote about it on her website.
She said, quote, "I felt an electric shock of energy . . . was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? [My butt] hurt like hell . . . then my neck, back, legs and forehead.
"And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting."
"Now, I was a Monty Python sketch; running at top speed in no particular direction, whipping my arms and hands around like I'd just discovered they were growing out of my shoulders without my previous knowledge . . .
"I was shaken. I was swollen. I had to stop what I was doing to recuperate and / or shrink."
