Renee Zellweger, Kenny Chesney Wed By MAT PROBASCO, Associated Press Writer
Tue May 10, 3:02 PM ET



CRUZ BAY, U.S. Virgin Islands - Actress Renee Zellweger, who played the lovelorn title character in "Bridget Jones's Diary," was married Monday to country music star Kenny Chesney in a small ceremony on the Caribbean island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The ceremony took place in front of close friends and family, Los Angeles-based publicist Nanci Ryder said in a statement. It is the first marriage for both.

The bride wore a dress designed by Carolina Herrera, she added.

Chesney, 37, grew up in east Tennessee and now lives on the island of St. John, while Zellweger, who turned 36 two weeks ago, is from Katy, Texas.

The couple met at the Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit Jan. 15, where Chesney was singing and Zellweger was answering telephones, the syndicated television news magazine "The Insider" reported.

The tiny island of St. John, population 5,000, is more than two-thirds national park and is known for its hiking, pristine beaches and tranquility. It also has an underwater snorkeling trail.

The wedding reception was held Monday night at Chesney's house in the gated community of Peter Bay, on the north side of the island. Guests could be seen milling around a garden where there was an outdoor buffet and light music playing.

The couple and about 45 guests gathered Sunday night at Rhumb Lines restaurant in downtown Cruz Bay, the main town on the island, according to restaurant employees.

Zellweger won a best supporting actress Oscar for "Cold Mountain." She was nominated for Oscars for her work in "Chicago" and "Bridget Jones's Diary."

Chesney currently has two albums on Billboard's top 10 country albums chart, and his single "Anything But Mine" is No. 6 on the magazine's hot country songs list.

Chesney was named Country Music Association entertainer of the year in November, while his "When The Sun Goes Down" was named album of the year. Other of his hits include "Me and You" and "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy."

According to Country Weekly magazine, Chesney long ago named Zellweger as his favorite actress and was inspired to write his 1999 hit "You Had Me From Hello" after seeing her in "Jerry Maguire."

Zellweger appeared at a recent Chesney concert in Jacksonsville, Fla., presenting him with a margarita and a kiss on stage, Country Weekly magazine reported.

Zellweger has dated White Stripes singer Jack White and "Me, Myself & Irene" co-star Jim Carrey.

It says that they met in January at a fundraiser for the Tsunami. I thought she was still dating that guy from the White Stripes!!! What an odd couple if you ask me!!! I guess I'm just upset because I thought he wanted me!!! haha!!!

OMG!! I heard that today!! You know, I saw him on an interview on the country video channel about 2 years ago, or maybe it was a bit longer. But, he was engaged then. They were asking him questions and at one point, he said, " Well....anyone who is married to ME, must understand they come second....my music will ALWAYS come first....
....Maybe she should've gotten to know what he was REALLY all about...
post #13 of 24
ODD ODD ODD. But whatever makes him happy. I just never thought he would have picked her of all people.
post #14 of 24
lol what ever, just because they have money it doesnt mean they can just get married and then divorced quickly.
to me it seems like they just do it so they can wear wedding dresses more than once in life.
post #15 of 24
Well it appears she had him from "Hello".

I think she looks way better as a blonde, glad to see she took that color back!

i agree, i like her as a blonde better also. That comment he made about his music coming first is ridiculous...I'd never be with a man who said something like that!!!

I hope they work together though, that picture of them together is cute!!!

Still, this is all so random---and quick!!!

Apparently, Kenny's admired her from afar for years. His big hit "You Had Me From Hello" was named after her big line in Jerry McGuire. So I think the fact that he's now married to her is really sweet. Hope it works for both of them; they make a good-looking couple. Kenny Chesney=

Good one!
(You can also be a boat captain to marry someone)

I've heard all about this. My little sister LOVES Kenny Chesney, so she's heartbroken. (She was planning to marry him herself.)

At least she seems to have a sense of humor and some brains. I'd hate to see him marry some twinkie.

Honestly I don't really care about this marriage, not being a huge fan of either, but...

Regarding Kenny's remark about marriage and music, either he changed his mind when the right woman came along, or she feels the same way about her acting.

But I have to admit, I said something similar to Earl when we met. I told him, "Look, I shoot rifles. I shoot military rifles. And I'm very good. If that intimidates you or you can't handle it, you can leave now. Because I'm not giving it up for anyone." Good thing he was supportive.

I think we've all said something similar to our significant others regarding our CATS!!!!

I think they are an extremely odd couple!

I guess I just dont know them, or anything much about their personal lives.
