Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell reportedly wed on Thursday, but there was no lavish ceremony involved. Instead, the pair ran off and got married at the Beverly Hills County Clerk's Office. Hey, have you priced party space rentals lately? The couple, who announced their engagement in 2010, allegedly went to the office just to get a marriage license, TMZ reports, but made the plunge after a court employee said they could just get married right then if they wanted to. They wanted to. The pair had put off tying the knot until gay marriage was legalized. Bell, 32, re-proposed to Shepard, 38, on Twitter this summer after the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act and California ditched Proposition 8. They have a daughter, Lincoln Bell Shepard, who was born in March. There was a photographer at the courthouse, so keep an eye on Twitter for that pic. So romantic!

Paul Hogan, wife getting divorced
Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan and his wife Linda are divorcing after 23 years, it seems. It just goes to show that meeting a co-star on the set of a goofy '80s movie and then starring in its exponentially worse sequel and getting married for 23 years and having a son only leads to trouble in the end. Linda Hogan (nee Kozlowski) cited irreconcilable differences in her petition, TMZ reports. She wants spousal support and joint custody of their 15-year-old boy, Chance. The site notes that Paul is worth upwards of $20 million, which buys a lot of shrimp for the barbie. His rep described the split as amicable, although the site notes they sold their Malibu home to Chris Hemsworth in September. Hogan, 74, met Kozlowski, 55, during the making of the 1986 film that made him famous. Model Bar Refaeli can't find a boyfriend

Model Bar Refaeli can't find a boyfriend
Every guy looking for a date to your pal's Halloween party, listen up: Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl Bar Refaeli is pretty down and out about not being able to land a man. Here's your chance, as long as you're a rich and good-looking celebrity. "I don't understand it," the 28-year-old tells Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, according to the New York Daily News. "I'm okay. I look great. I'm cool. I like going out. I like being at home, I like movies, I like eating. So what's wrong with me? Why am I alone?" Maybe it's the former boyfriend, Leonardo DiCaprio. She tells the mag she was still so hung up on him after six years she couldn't handle seeing him date Blake Lively. "I suddenly choked up and I started crying uncontrollably," she says about seeing photos of those two at a basketball game in 2010. She says she's all better now, so it's time to go find what she really wants: "I'm looking for someone serious, who I can set up home with," she says.

No movie for 'Calvin and Hobbes'
Sorry, Calvin and Hobbes fans, but if you've been holding your breath waiting for a film adaptation of the beloved comic, you're out of luck. And so is Pixar. The strip's notoriously withdrawn creator Bill Watterson got uncharacteristically chatty in an email interview with Mental Floss, and he said there's no way he's going to make the same mistake as all those fancy novelists whose masterpieces were transformed into mediocre movies. "I have zero interest in animating Calvin and Hobbes," Watterson wrote. "If you've ever compared a film to a novel it's based on, you know the novel gets bludgeoned. ... As a comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes works exactly the way I intended it to. There's no upside for me in adapting it."
