Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are officially married. The couple started dating eight months ago, and the news of their engagement was announced on December 19th. Some of the guests at this star-studded wedding included Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Samantha Ronson, and Pussycat Dolls choreographer Robin Antin. Madden’s twin brother, Joel Madden, and his wife Nicole Richie were also in attendance. Joel and Nicole’s son, Sparrow, was the ring bearer. Diaz’s bridesmaids were Drew Barrymore, Nicole Richie, her sister Chimene, and her assistant Jesse Lutz. The ceremony took place at Diaz’s Beverly Hills home on Monday.
During an interview in 2010, the actress had a pretty strong opinion about romance and marriage, “I am a romantic. I love romance. I’m not afraid of commitment. I commit to everything I’m doing and I am hopelessly loyal. But I hate predicting the future, I really do, because you just don’t know. I can’t even make up my mind what I’m going to do this weekend. The mystique and the romance of a big wedding are lost on me. I don’t think that I could ever do something that extravagant. I am not much of a planner. I would probably make the phone call twenty minutes before the bus leaves for the chapel and ask if anyone is available to come. That’s probably how my wedding is going to end up.” Diaz definitely did not have a big wedding, but I’m sure she didn’t call her wedding guests twenty minutes before the ceremony.
Could children be next for the actress and Good Charlotte rocker? In the past, Diaz did say she does want children one day, whether it’s through adoption or some other way. Cameron Diaz is 42, and her husband, Benji, is 35 years old. The Annie star credited timing as the secret to her happy relationship, “You have to find someone in the same place as you are. Timing is everything. If you get into a relationship where you want something the guy doesn’t want, it’s never going to work.” This is the first marriage for both stars. In the past, Diaz famously dated Justin Timberlake, Alex Rodriguez, Jared Leto, and Matt Dillion. Madden was romantically linked to Paris Hilton, Sophie Monk, Holly Madison, and Eliza Doolitte.
