Hollywood couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively celebrated their first wedding anniversary over the weekend (07-08Sep13) by returning to South Carolina, where they wed last year (12), for a mini-vacation. The Green Lantern co-stars exchanged vows in Mount Pleasant on 9 September, 2012, and the New York-based couple headed back down south for a little relaxation in nearby Charleston this weekend.
As part of their trip, Reynolds and Lively also visited Savannah, Georgia, where they enjoyed an all-you-can-eat lunch at historic eatery Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room on Monday (09Sep13) to mark their first 12 months as man and wife.
Owner Marcia Thompson tells People.com, "They were absolutely darling. I asked them what they were doing in Savannah, and she said it was their anniversary and they had never been able to get in the restaurant before. The line wasn't too terribly long."
However, the couple's lunch date wasn't very intimate - they were seated at a table with six other diners for the family-style meal.
Thompson adds, "Nobody made a fuss over them. I know the other people sitting at the table knew who they were, but they didn't say anything to them about who they were and that was nice. I thanked (the other diners) for that...
"I am honoured that they came here on their anniversary. I hope they enjoyed it."
With all the talk about superhero movies lately it only seems appropriate to have a quick discussion about a superhero social network. Do heroes need their own social network? Should we just share ours?
A true superhero usually has a cape, a couple special powers and a big fan base. If Thor were to join Facebook right now he would immediately acquire too many friend requests and many fans would be denied. He would then have to set up a business page and manage two different accounts which can become very cumbersome when traveling between planetary dimensions and such. Maybe Thor wants to fly under the radar and prefers the anonymity?If Loki added Thor to his family list would Thor ever confirm it?
Since superheroes are always on the move it makes it difficult for them to keep in touch with their friends. It's also sometimes difficult to show off some of the great many achievements they make in daily life. So why wouldn't superheroes want a Facebook for themselves?The mashup above uses footage from Green Lantern, X-Men First Class and The Social Network. Basically it appears Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds) stole the Facebook idea from the X-Men gang. The X-Men and Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) are not going to sit back and let the Green Lantern take it from them and instead pose an all out war.The moral of the story is Superheroes do need a social outlet to talk about who they saved or who they killed. They need to find Groupon deals for costumes and need an outlet to share memes when the Hulk acts up or just so Spider-man can click that "Like" button when Batman posts a cool shot of Gotham from the Bell Tower.

Scarlett Johansson's imminent second trip down the aisle has been confirmed after she sparked engagement rumours at the Venice International Film Festival in Italy earlier this week (beg02Sep13) The Lost In Translation beauty's sparkling diamond ring sent gossips into a spin at the red carpet premiere of her new film Under the Skin on Tuesday (03Sep13).
Her publicist has now announced the speculation she is to marry journalist Romain Dauriac is correct.
The rep says, "I can confirm that Scarlett and Romain are engaged. They haven't chosen a date for the wedding."
The union will be Johansson's second marriage - she exchanged vows with Ryan Reynolds in 2008, but it lasted less than three years. Reynolds is now married to actress Blake Lively.
Scarlett Johansson is heading down the aisle again - the actress is engaged to marry journalist Romain Dauriac, according to U.S. reports. Sources tell People.com that Frenchman Dauriac proposed earlier this summer (13) with a vintage Art Deco diamond ring, which the 28 year old was spotted wearing at the Venice International Film Festival in Italy earlier this week (beg02Sep13). Johansson is in Europe promoting her new sci-fi film Under the Skin.
The actress' publicist has offered no comment about the engagement story.
The Lost in Translation star has been married once before - she wed Ryan Reynolds in 2008, but the union lasted less than three years. Reynolds is now married to actress Blake Lively.
Lady Gaga is in talks to cement her comeback by hosting and performing on U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live. The Born This Way hitmaker will reportedly make her third appearance on the popular show later this year (13), according to TVLine.com.
Gaga previously appeared on the show in 2009 and 2011.
During both episodes she was featured on, she also acted in several skits alongside Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake.
The pop superstar made her first appearance following hip surgery at the MTV Video Music Awards last month (Sep13) and she has since hit the stage for a full set at London's iTunes Festival on Sunday (01Sep13).
Newlywed actress Kate Bosworth and her director beau Michael Polish have shared their first photo as husband and wife, a day after exchanging vows atop a mountain in Montana. The Hollywood couple wed at sunset at the picturesque Ranch at Rock Creek in Philipsburg on Saturday (31Aug13), and photographers from lifestyle queen Martha Stewart's wedding magazine were there to capture exclusive images for a special December (13) issue.
A teaser shot featuring the stars kissing on their big day was released online on Sunday (01Sep13), with the Superman Returns beauty wearing a custom-made white Oscar de la Renta dress, while her new husband suited up in a Brooks Brothers outfit.
Pictures from Bosworth and Polish's wedding album will feature in the winter (13) edition of Martha Stewart Weddings, a year after Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds shared snaps from their 2012 nuptials in the same publication.

The announcement that Ben Affleck would play Batman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie sent shockwaves around the Internet. Twitter, Facebook, and comic book forums lit up as millions of geeks expressed their opinion that Affleck was seriously miscast. While we haven’t yet seen Affleck don the armor of the Dark Knight, we have seen past failures when superstar and superhero don’t quite merge harmoniously.
George Clooney as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Batman & Robin (1997)One could fill an entire list of miscasts from this movie alone, but the worst decision was to cast George Clooney as Batman. The debonair Clooney certainly is a talented actor, but none of that talent surfaced during this two-hour campfest.
Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, Green Lantern (2009)There’s nothing inherently wrong with infusing lightheartedness into a film adaptation of a comic book, but there has to be some sort of plausibility to it. Casting Ryan Reynolds as a man without fear is simply laughable. The man lacks a serious bone in his body, and we’re to believe he can stand up to the embodiment of evil?
Brandon Routh as Superman/Clark Kent, Superman Returns (2006)He may have looked and sounded like Christopher Reeve, but he was certainly no Superman. More of a Superboy, Brandon Routh just didn’t have the gravitas, charisma or machismo to play the Man of Steel.

Halle Berry as Catwoman, Catwoman (2004)Halle Berry’s Catwoman may not be the Selina Kyle most people associate with the famed comic cat burglar, but even the re-imagined sexy alternative didn’t suit the Academy Award winning actress. Her acting was simply so abysmal that some critics thought she should return her Oscar for Monster's Ball as a penalty for pitiful performance.
Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Spider-Man TrilogySam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 were two of the best superhero movies of all time (the less we talk about Spider-Man 3, the better), but Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man really didn’t conform to his comic book counterpart. Lean, wiry and with a smart-ass personality, Spider-Man was not the lovesick puppy dog that Tobey Maguire portrayed, who resembled more like Clark Kent than Peter Parker.
Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, The Incredible Hulk (2009)Another capable actor who just didn’t seem like a right fit for the role, Edward Norton was grossly miscast as Bruce Banner. In real life, Norton’s a very intelligent man, but he could never exude the genius-level intellect of Bruce Banner. But most importantly, Norton just doesn’t possess the inner rage that would manifest itself into an unstoppable, hulking green force.
Shaquille O’Neal as Steel/John Henry Irons, Steel (1997)Where to begin? For starters, Shaquille O’Neal is a basketball player with no acting skills, despite having appeared in several films by now. Second, while Shaq may possess more inches than required to reach the imposing height of John Henry Irons, he doesn’t have the chiseled physique nor the hardened look to strike fear into criminals.

College Humor recently posted a list of eight fictional girls from movies and TV who we're really supposed to like but, at heart, actually suck. Girls like Mary Elizabeth Winstead's Ramona Flowers in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World or Andie MacDowell's Rita in Groundhog Day. Or Jennifer Love Hewitt in Can't Hardly Wait or Tiffani Thiessen in Saved by the Bell. And don't even get them started on the creepy awfulness of Robin Wright's sexually predatory Jenny in Forrest Gump.
We here at Hollywood.com have decided to respond in kind, but with a little gender equality. What about Movie & TV guys who really suck? They are a-plenty. Take note of the following eight guys who we're supposed to think are charming or likable but are really just schmucks. Starting with...
1. Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Okay, the only reason anyone likes this character is because his abs "look like they're photoshopped" and because we're all just encouraged to think that Ryan Gosling can do no wrong. As any character. But his Jacob Palmer in the 2011 rom-com is a sociopath. He's taken his broken heart over a bad relationship and has decided to star in his own revenge film in which he derives emotional satisfaction from breaking the hearts of all of womankind. He is to women what Dirty Harry is to punks, and we're not buying it. Of course, he's also a phony because he can't even commit to his sociopathy. All he needs is the love of Emma Stone to heal his psychic wounds. See also: a similar sociopathy on display as the nameless driver in Drive, with some additional paternalistic overtones.
2. Matthew Morrison's Mr. Schuester on Glee
Try hanging out with some people your own age for once, perv.
3. Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man
I know, I know, Sam Raimi really wanted to play up Spider-Man's essential "everyman appeal," but Tobey Maguire comes across more like a lovesick puppydog than a daring webslinger. However, all that aw-shucks pining for Mary Jane masks his true contempt for her when he punches her in the face after sporting Emo bangs.
4. Shia LaBeouf in Transformers 1, 2, & 3
I choose to believe that the whole cars-turning-into-robots thing is just an elaborate fantasy in his mind — which explains why he's always dating porn-chic women in cut-off jeans and bosom-flaunting tank tops — and that he's rocking himself back and forth in a straight-jacket somewhere.
5. Alex Pettyfer in Magic Mike
Sure, wannabe stripper Adam's shirtless presence may result in female strip club patrons having wallets as empty as his head. But isn't charisma more than skin deep? Even if so much of the movie is about Adam's rise and fall, there's a reason Channing Tatum's Magic Mike is the title character.
6. Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal
Really, dude? You not only leave behind a home of palatial splendor in Alaska — and a Granny in Betty White — to earn pennies as the assistant of an icy editrix who barely knows your name, you want to marry her to secure her U.S. residency? Out of some vague notion that it might lead to you getting a promotion? Right. And I bet you can see Russia from your house too, huh?
7. Michael Cera in Juno
Admittedly, this is a tricky one because the backlash against Cera post-Juno has been so extreme that we almost forget there actually was a time we did like him. But fans of the Diablo Cody flick still love Cera's Paulie Bleeker...even though he's a pathetic tool who insists upon wearing head- and wristbands like he's a refugee from a 1985 episode of Miami Vice. He should not be fathering anything. Ever.
8. Orlando Bloom in The Pirates of the Caribbean, Elizabethtown, s**t, Everything.
He is the male Andie MacDowell.
