Reason to love Anne Hathaway No. 743: She married Adam Shulman in September, and is now selling her wedding photos and donating the profits to Freedom to Marry (a pro-gay marriage campaign) and other non-profit organisations. Yes, she is awesome.
This from Opposing Views:
Hathaway is a strong supporter of the LGBT community, and she made that clear in 2008 when she received an award from the Human Rights Campaign. In her acceptance speech, she explained that being gay wasn’t a big deal growing up in her household. “When my brother came out, we hugged him, said we loved him, and that was that,” Hathaway explained.
So, it makes sense that she would use the inevitable profits from her own wedding to support the marriages of same-sex couples. However, her generosity doesn’t end there. She will also be donating profits to the American Cancer Society, The Girl Effect, and St. Jude Children’s Research.
No word just yet on who will be the highest bidder for the wedding photos – but we’ll keep an eye out for you.
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek plus other recent celeb weddings you may have missed:
Rachael Finch married Michael Miziner
Fergie is the latest celebrity to sit down for an Oprah confession. The Black Eyed Peas singer talked about her 9 year relationship with actor Josh Duhamel and how they survived his alleged infidelity.
“It was difficult. When you go through difficult times, it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership. It does for us, anyways. Our love today is a deeper love, definitely. We’re stronger today definitely because of anything difficult that’s happened with us. We deal with it, we communicate; communicating’s the most important thing.”
You can see the video of Fergie talking to Oprah here.
Britney Spears has decided to splurge on a new home in Los Angeles and it cost her a mere US $8.5mil. We’ve got the pics of the house right here because who doesn’t love a little real estate porn.

Getaway presenter and SCA radio host, Jules Lund, has accounced that he is leaving Channel Nine, hinting at a move to rival, Seven.
This from Mumbrella:
Remaining as a presenter on Southern Cross Austereo’s Today Network with Fifi Box, Lund said: “It’s exciting to think for the first time ever I can pick and choose television projects on any network.”
“I’ve also got the freedom to explore opportunities with Fifi Box outside of radio. We’ve formed an unbreakable bond, and up until now, our network contracts have restricted appearing on TV together, so that excites me,” he said.
Box is a Seven talent with an entertainment editor role on Sunrise.
It’s been a big month for Jules, who also announced the birth of his baby girl last week – check out that story here.
Dear Fashion: Please stop being ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. We will not be adding nose jewellery to our wardrobes anytime soon.
DON’T MOCK. A nose guard is very useful for when you fall on your face while walking down the runway.
At the other end of the fashion spectrum: THIS. If your dressing up options consist of one black dress that gets dragged out of the back of your closet every time you have to go somewhere after dark, it’s time to treat yourself to this season’s surprising new basic: the little red dress.
Everyone from the fair-skinned Michelle Williams to the spray-tanned Kim Kardashian is wearing the LRD because it’s a universally flattering colour. Believe it. We’ve found this awesome version for you – and, better yet, it’s on sale for $49.95 until tomorrow.
Change from $50? Winning.
Strategic ruching across the hips and waist make it suitable for all sizes and the minimalist design means you can reinvent it over and over again. A black clutch and sparkly earrings for cocktail hour, ankle boots and a black jacket for lunch dates, a statement necklace and nude coloured heels for a night out… your styling options are endless. Did we mention winning?
