The Juice: Mila Kunis tops Esquire's sexy list, DeVito and Perlman split, Jack Osbourne weds

Mila tops Esquire's sexy list

After everyone who isn't a New York Yankees fan scratched their heads and asked "Who?" last year by naming Derek Jeter's ex Minka Kelly their Sexiest Woman Alive, Esquire has gone a little more populist and chosen Mila Kunis. You know, the one from Black Swan who didn't win the Oscar. "What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be," Kunis told the magazine. "What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be." Umm, okay. Hard to believe she once starred on That '70s Show.

DeVito and Perlman split after 30 years

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are kaput?!? We stopped believing in the sanctity of celebrity marriages back when Burt and Loni broke up, but this news just shocks us. "The twosome first got to know each other when both were coming up in the TV world," E! News reports, "and were already a couple when Perlman landed one of her first notable roles as Zena, the girlfriend of DeVito's character Louis DePalma on Taxi, before she shot to fame as sarcastic waitress Carla Tortelli on Cheers." DeVito is the one breaking the bad news, according to reports. We still don't know the reason, but this being Hollywood, we'll hold our breath and count to three while waiting for the usual "irreconcilable differences." The couple has been married 30 years.

Jack Osbourne weds

It seems the rumors about Jack Osbourne marrying Lisa Stelly in Hawaii over the weekend were true, after all. Try as they might to hide it, a source told Us Weekly the ceremony did happen while he was on the islands. Not that Jack was copping to it, of course. Ozzy Osbourne's son tweeted last week that he was actually going to the 50th state to see mom Sharon. "I love how going to Hawaii with my mum for her 60th has turned into my wedding. Hahaha people are funny," he posted. What a masterful use of misdirection, young Jack. Anyway, he got hitched to baby mama Lisa on Sunday, the mag said. His rep confirmed the news. Jack and Stelly started dating in April 2011 and had daughter Pearl the following April.
