2012 Year in Review: The 20 Biggest Weddings, Breakups and Makeups

Just like the rest of the world, love makes the Hollywood go round.

This year had no shortage of romance among the stars. From Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel saying “I do” under the stars in Southern Italy, to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively secretly getting hitched on a sprawling Southern plantation, many buzzed-about celebrity couples found their happily-ever-after in 2012.

Even some of the industry’s most beloved golden girls turned bridal. Natalie Portman tied the knot with her Benjamin Millepied in a traditional Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, Calif., where Anne Hathaway also walked down the aisle at sunset to wed Adam Shulman.

Drew Barrymore vowed for forever with Will Kopleman at her Montecito, Calif. estate, while Carey Mulligan took the plunge with Mumford & Sons musician Marcus Mumford in the countryside of Somerset, England.

But wedded bliss didn’t bless everyone, with many longtime lovers calling it quits in 2012. After almost seven years of marriage, Heidi Klum and Seal announced their separation in January before officially filing for divorce three months later.

Parting ways after five wedded years, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes — long labeled Tomkat — reached a surprisingly speedy divorce settlement after just 11 days in July, with the actress receiving primary custody of the couple’s six-year-old daughter, Suri.

But not all of Hollywood’s bitter breakups stuck. Back in July, Kristen Stewart was infamously snapped smooching her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, seemingly ruining her three-year relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. But Twihard broken hearts were soon on the mend, as Stewart and Pattinson were spotted canoodling in Los Angeles, Calif., in October.

Now, as the countdown begins to 2013, look back at this year’s biggest weddings, breakups and makeups.

Which wedding took the cake? What split was most shocking? And which makeups were meant to be? Share your thoughts in comments below.

‘Twilight’ Star Robert Pattinson Cast in New Carey Mulligan Movie ‘Hold On to Me’ (REPORT)

Move over Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson is getting a new leading lady.

As The Twilight Saga is coming to an end, the 26-year-old actor is signing on to star alongside fellow Brit Carey Mulligan in Hold On to Me, according to Deadline.

The movie — directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker James Marsh — revolves around the true story of a femme fatale who, along with her boyfriend, kidnaps the town’s richest man for ransom. Pattinson will play the supporting role of Jimmy, the woman’s life love who isn’t involved in the crime.

Hold On to Me is Pattinson’s third post-Twilight saga project. The actor is will also appear alongside Guy Pearce in the David Michod-directed The Rover and star in Mission Blacklist, a true story of the U.S. military interrogator responsible for discovering the location of Saddam Hussein.

Pattinson is currently on the first leg of his global Breaking Dawn – Part 2 promotional tour. As his co-star — and on-and-off girlfriend — Stewart promotes the film in Japan, the British heartthrob will be attending press events in Australia.

The couple will be reunited for joint press junkets starting Sunday with a red carpet appearance at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater for the world premiere of the final Twilight installment on Nov. 12.

Zac Efron

Shia LaBeouf: ‘I’m Nothing Like Zac Efron’

– SHIA LaBeouf hates it when he’s compared to fellow Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron — because, he insists, he’s nothing like the hunky High School Musical star.  The 23-year-old actor — who stars alongside Michael Douglas in new movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps — admits he has a “dark side” and that he could never be perceived as squeaky-clean like some of his Hollywood peers.

“I’ve never been like Zac Efron,” he said. “I am a bit of an a**hole. I have a dark side. I’m a bit of a ruffian.

“I’ve never tried to be anything else. I was never educated properly because I got kicked out of every school.”

Shia then revealed he became an actor because of the money. “Initially, it was all money driven,” he said.

“I didn’t give a s**t about arts. We were as broke as balls, so I just wanted to move my family into better digs.”

Shia — who’s currently dating his Money Never Sleeps costar Carey Mulligan recently admitted he has never wanted to romance an actress.

“I’ve said this before, women are a vice to me,” he said. “But that was a different time in my life. I have a problem trusting people and I never wanted to date an actress, but you can’t plan for this.

“It smacks you in the face, and everything I thought I knew, I didn’t know, so I’m just learning again. It’s great, it’s amazing. I was really lonely before, a really dark dude. I still am, but I’m better. I think love is my favourite hobby, for sure.

“I fall in love easily, but there’s a difference between being in love and being in a loving relationship. ‘In love’ is infatuation. ‘Love’ is when that love dies down and you’re just there. The burning volcano stops erupting, the lava gets cold. And I’m close to that for sure.”
