Maggie Gyllenhaal & Peter Sarsgaard get married in Italy

Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard got married in Italy over the weekend. There were rumors swirling about the impending nuptials last week, but I doubted they would go through with it. The wedding took place in Brindisi, Italy on Saturday, with Maggie’s brother Jake and Jake’s girlfriend Reese Witherspoon in attendance. The couple has been together for nearly seven years, and are thought to have gotten engaged in 2006. That was the year Maggie got pregnant with daughter Ramona, now aged two and half.

Hollywood couple Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard have finally made it official. The two New York based actors tied the knot in a small chapel in Brindisi Italy on Saturday.

Maggie’s younger brother Jake and his lady love Reese Witherspoon were among the guests at the ceremony.

Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard have been dating since 2002 and have two-and-a-half-month-old daughter Ramona together.

Gyllenhaal has starred in such movies as The Dark Knight, Sherrybaby, Donnie Darko and Secretary. Sarsgaard, like Gyllenhaal, is also a favorite of the indy film sect, having appeared in such movies as Boys Don’t Cry, Shattered Glass, and The Man In The Iron Mask.

From Radar Online

I wonder if Maggie will change her name to Maggie Gyllenhaal-Sarsgaard? Lord, that’s a mouth-full. Anyway, they’ve always seemed like a nice couple, and it’s always great to see a seemingly permanently “engaged” couple finally get down the aisle. I’m actually a bigger fan of Peter Sarsgaard rather than Maggie – I think he’s so lovely and talented, where Maggie is a bit overrated as an actress (my opinion). Their backgrounds are very different too – Maggie comes from a very artistic, intellectual, grounded family where Peter was an Army brat with a very nomadic childhood. Currently, Maggie, Peter and Ramona live in New York. Congratulations to Maggie and Peter!

    I agree, Kaiser, that Maggie is overrated!

  2. CandyKay says:

    Peter was fantastic in “Shattered Glass” as the editor who first believes in and vouches for Stephen Glass, and slowly realizes he’s been tricked.

    A neglected performance in a neglected movie. Great stuff.

  3. HEB says:

    I like Maggie.

  4. blahblah says:

    She’s never impressed me as an actress, she’s ok but not memorable at all… and like I don’t see the fascination with this chick. I liked him a lot in the skeleton key.

  5. Pop it Up says:

    They are some both some of the best actors of their generation. She is FAR from overrated. But he is deff underrated. I completely agree with CandyKay

  6. Tess says:

    also agree with CandyKay.

    His performance in Shattered Glass was very, very good. And tho I’m not a fan of Hayden Christiansen’s, they did play off each other superbly well in that film.

    I like them both as actors and human beings :-) ))

    Thanks for the tip on the title; I’m putting that on my list. I like these two as role models.

    They will give birth to a party of little pirates. aaaaaaarg!

  9. Obvious says:

    In the quote it says the Ramona is two-and-a-half months….not years.

    but congrats to them. i hope they are truly happy.

    I think that’s the first time I’ve seen “artistic” and “grounded” in the same description. I would not use “grounded” in that way, personally.

    I am partial to that dress… Anyone know what brand it is??

    Reese Witherspoon used this opportunity for her fauxmance promotion – how classy of her! lol

    I’m afraid one day he’s going to “snap”.
    Soldier has been told in no uncertain terms to “keep your son away from my child”.
    They tell me some of these concerned parents have called Child Protective Services regarding this issue.
    Dad has showed his 7 year old son hard pornography in an attempt to ensure he doesn’t become gay. Ironically, now the boy has a fascination with penis. Appropriate, because they say dad gets excited with trannys::::He wants to lift her skirt and fondle her penis.
    He sure married the right girl.
    Parenting classes would be in order. And a little psychoanalysis.
    The Gods tested his attraction to transsexuals by sending people by, likely during the period where he felt he had to prove he was a “real man”, ironically.
    Fruit loop.
