Russell Brand, Katy Perry to marry on a Hump Day

You would think a celebrity like Russell Brand would want to keep the date of his impending marriage under wraps, but in fact, he has no problem revealing when he and Katy Perry plan on tying the knot.

"Sometime this year," he told "Showbiz Tonight's" Brooke Anderson during her interview with the English comedian. "Hopefully, Wednesdays."

Heigl: 'Killers' is a twist on rom-com formula

Even if you haven’t put a ring on it yet, all you have to do is take a look at recent news headlines to figure out that marriage ain’t easy. But imagine how difficult it would be if you and your spouse also have to deal with assassins out to kill you.

That's the plot line of the new romantic comedy “The Killers,” opening nationwide Friday, and lead actress Katherine Heigl calls it “a new twist” on nuptials and romance.

“I love the idea of exploring marriage in this big, broad, sort of farce way," Heigl told CNN. “I like the idea...of doing something that’s still romantic, still a comedy, but has a little bit of a twist on the formula.”

'Twilight' stars to ditch UK 'Eclipse' premiere

Three major stars won't be on view at "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" premiere in London on July 1: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have all opted out.

While the Daily Mail reports that neither Stewart nor Lautner gave an explanation as to why they can't attend what would certainly be a screamfest, Pattinson, at least, has a good excuse: The teen idol is busy filming "Water for Elephants," a circus-themed love story in which Pattinson makes Reese Witherspoon's heart go pitter-patter.

The Brit-born actor was spotted on location in L.A. yesterday, sharing a laugh and cigarettes with cast and crew.
