The indie actors will hopefully fuse their vowel-laden last names together.
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard will make it official next month in Italy, Page Six is reporting. The aggressively vowelled couple has been together for seven glorious years, during which they have seemed frighteningly normal and down to earth. The Brooklynites are the parents of a daughter, Ramona, and the wedding is reportedly scheduled for Mother's Day weekend.
Maggie has said that she wants a big "fairy tale" wedding, rather than quick I Dos in front of Mayor Bloomberg at City Hall (not that there's anything wrong with that. We hear the renovations are lovely). "I've had so many different incarnations of my fantasy wedding dress," she has said. The longtime Big Apple dwellers costarred earlier this year in an off-Broadway production of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, so even in Italy, we expect their wedding to have a certain Gotham flair.
Fervent celeb-watchers (and in these depressing times, aren't we all?) will expect to see Maggie's younger brother, Jake, who is also close friends with Peter (they costarred in that sweaty ode to fatigues and gas masks, 2005's Jarhead), at the wedding, hopefully with his rumored fiancée, Reese Witherspoon. (But let's not get carried away; these are movie stars, not Lifetime Movie-of-the-Week folks, so don't expect a double wedding or any such insane, highly entertaining shenanigans.) And while we doubt the nuptials will top Salma Hayek’s lavish Italian bash, it would be fitting for the celebration to be intimate, romantic, and a little quirky. Maybe with cocktails themed to match their various film roles. Secretary-tini? Kinsey-rita? Dark Knight & Stormy?
