No, not to Pamela Anderson, unfortunately.

Sacha Baron Cohen has finally tied the knot with his sweetheart Isla Fisher. The two have been together for quite some time now — about 10 years — and, apparently, things are going well for them.

As reported on Indyposted.com, they got hitched in a very secretive, small ceremony in Paris. It better have been worth it for Fisher. She spent the better part of three years converting to Judaism so that she would gain the approval of Cohen’s parents. How traditional…and sweet.

Of course, Cohen has been in movies like Borat, Ali G Indahouse, and the latest screen gem, Bruno. (That last part was sarcasm, if you didn’t pick up on it.) You might know Fisher from movies like Confessions of a Shopaholic and Wedding Crashers.

It’s hard for me to picture these two together, but you know what they say…opposites attract. The fact that they’ve been together so long says worlds about their strong relationship. Congrats!

We all know who Kevin Smith is, right? He’s the hilarious completion of Jay and Silent Bob (he’s Silent Bob) and also a very talented director who has sparked much interest in the entertainment industry. He should be treated with respect and dignity, not thrown off an airplane.

Smith was asked to leave a Southwest Airlines flight because he didn’t fit comfortably in one seat (i.e. because he is fat). The actor acknowledges that he is overweight, but not that overweight. According to the Associated Press, Smith said, “I’m way fat, but I’m not there just yet,” and “If you look like me, you may be ejected from Southwest Air.”

The airline has a ‘customer of size’ policy that requires the customer to be able to fit in one seat. In many cases, airlines will accept a large customer’s purchase of two seats so that they can fit properly.

Smith, of course, was outraged at this. He made a big to-do about the incident on his twitter page, posted pictures of himself making fat faces, and was joined by tons of enraged fans. In this case, being a movie star helped his cause. The airline issued a heartfelt apology and even offered him vouchers for another flight.

Good for you, Kevin. To listen to Smith’s smodcast about the incident, entitled ‘Go fuck yourself, Southwest Airlines,’ visit his smodcast page. You have to admit, it has a catchy title.
