Josh Duhamel and Kristen Bell in When in Rome
WHEN IN ROME
Mena Suvari and Simone Sestito just got married there, and weak-at-the-knees-gorgeous Josh Duhamel’s new film is set there; Rome just got hot for destination weddings and honeymoons.
American Pie’s Mena married concert producer Simone on June 26th in the Vatican City, after three years together; two of which were spent engaged after a whirlwind romance that started when they met at the Toronto Film Festival in 2007. (Find out more here.)
Now Kristen ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ Bell’s Beth is off to Italy in Josh Duhamel rom-com When in Rome. It’s a fun chick-flick about Beth, who goes to her sister’s Rome wedding and ends up pinching magic coins from a love fountain. Cue a gaggle of hilarious pursuers (Danny Devito, Jon Heder, Will Arnett and Dax Shepard) who follow her home to NY, all vying for her heart; and that just makes it all the more tricky when gorgeous Nick (Duhamel) seems to fall for her: is it love or magic?
Take your bridesmaids to thank them for all their support so far: they’ll be queueing up for some big-day blessings of their own after this…
