One of the biggest stories coming out of the Oscars on Sunday night was the pair of rings that Natalie Portman and her beau Benjamin Millepied were wearing all night. Their jeweler, Jamie Wolf, confirmed that in fact the pair commissioned him to create their wedding bands, according to an Us Weekly report. Wolf said, "I designed the rings worn by Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman. They were made with recycled platinum and conflict free diamonds."
The Academy Award winning "Black Swan" actress and her choreographer husband welcomed their son Aleph Portman-Millepied in June of last year. The pair actually met and fell in love on the set of the ballet-centered film that got Portman her Best Actress Oscar last year. In their typically private fashion, no announcement was made prior to the pair stepping out on the red carpet. It was sleuth-eyed photographers and reporters that noticed the rings, and speculation started before Wolf confirmed that indeed they were wedding rings.
Though they live in a world where most things are not private some stars to manage to sneak off together to get hitched, and we thought we'd take a look at a few of the more notable instances.
David Schwimmer - The former "Friends" star didn't make a big ruckus when he and his wife, Zoe Buckman were married in 2010. In fact, there was no ruckus at all, just a quiet announcement that the couple, who met while Zoe was waitressing in London, had gotten married.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green - When the "Transformers" star and the star of "Beverly Hills: 90210" started dating, no one knew how long it would last. But in June of 2010, the pair said their vows to one another in a secret ceremony. The pair had been engaged before but their separation proved to be temporary when they got back together and ultimately married in Hawaii.
Jessica Alba - Alba and her husband Cash Warren went super-low profile for their wedding in 2008. The guest list only included the judge who married them, and whoever happened to be in the courtroom at the time. The pair have two children together.
Renée Zellweger and Kenny Chesney - Maybe they should have had a huge wedding ceremony and a quiet annulment, but it didn't quite work out that way. Renée and Kenny were married in a quiet and private ceremony in May of 2005, and by December of the same year the bloom was off the rose. The pair called it quits for real, having the marriage wiped off the books when it was annulled.
