Avatar star Giovanni Ribisi and supermodel Agness Deyn tied the knot in a surprise ceremony in Los Angeles, Calif. last Friday, his publicist confirmed to Celebuzz.
“Agyness Deyn and Giovanni Ribisi quietly married in Los Angeles over the weekend,” the rep said in a statement.
The 29-year-old English model and the 37-year-old actor married without the usual big ceremony at the L.A. County Registrar’s Office in East Los Angeles.
Despite spending years modeling some of the top designers, Deyn wore just a plain striped t-shirt instead of a wedding dress and Ribisi — who is in the upcoming film Ted — also chose a tee over a tux.
The world would have not known about the pair’s marriage — or relationship for that matter — if it had not been for a reporter from a local Pasadena online newspaper Crown City News, who was picking up her child’s birth certificate at the registrar’s office.
While the reporter recognized Ribisi, she did not recognize the model — even asking Deyn to take a picture of the reporter with the Avatar star.
“I asked if the two had been together for a while, and they looked at each other and kind of smiled, and he vaguely said, ‘A while’,” the reporter wrote in an article.
Only recently, Deyn denied she was in a relationship.
“I’m all alone,” she told the Daily Mail in March.
“There has been no man in my life for several months now and although it would be nice to have a boyfriend, I can’t just settle for anybody.”
Well, looks like things have changed!
The model was last dating Australian VH1 presenter Jason Dundas in 2011 and has been linked to a string of rockers and James Franco.
Meanwhile, this is Ribisi’s second marriage. He was married to actress Mariah O’Brien for four years but split in 2001.
The couple’s secret wedding mirrors that of James Bond star Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz last year.
