Halle Berry has reportedly tied the knot with Olivier Martinez in France on Saturday.

The church close to where they were staying in the country has helped the couple to have a peaceful low profile ceremony with their pals and family.

Australian actor Hugh Jackman addressed the press in Seoul, in a promotional event for his upcoming film The Wolverine.

The actor, who had visited hot springs in Japan during a break in shooting for the  film, reportedly upset fellow bathers by failing to cover up his manhood.

The 44-year-old was all nude during his time at the hot springs and it took him almost an hour to understand that the hand towel he had been given at the entrance was to cover his private parts, reported.

Jackman told the publication that the place is separated for male and female and they hand you a towel, a small washcloth.

He said that there are eight different types of tubs with heats of different temperatures.

The Australian actor asserted that he got so hot that he used the towel to dip into the cold water and put it on his head, but he was getting very strange looks from everybody.

The Wolverine releases July 24.

The singer's latest album, The Art of Letting Go, which she was due to release this month, might be her last with Island Def Jam, it has been revealed.

The singer has decided to take this step after delays and a lack of promotion and support by the recording label, the New York Post reported.

Music insiders told the publication that the album’s first single, ‘hash Beautiful,’ was not heavily promoted by IDJ, and Carey was disappointed by the label’s efforts.

Some insiders also blame the lack of attention to Carey on the fact that label execs were busy focusing on Kanye West’s album Yeezus.

Meanwhile, a rep for IDJ told the publication that they love Carey and her music and have fully supported her every step of the way here at Island Def Jam.
