People magazine reports a source close to the couple saying:

"George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren't really trying to hide this, it doesn't seem. I think it's like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever."

Alamuddin, 36, has represented high-profile clients including the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange.


Cantona-inspired LaBeouf dons paper bag at film event

Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf has been putting in an odd performance at the Berlin Film Festival - quoting Eric Cantona and walking out of a press conference before later wearing a paper bag on his head declaring: "I am not famous any more."

The star of Transformers and Wall Street II, who is promoting controversial director Lars von Trier's new film Nymphomaniac at the festival, left the press conference after 10 minutes of questions.

He walked out after repeating Manchester United legend Cantona's famously cryptic speech to reporters in 1995, in which he told them: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea."

Matthew McConaughey and long-time, Brazilian girlfriend Camila Alves tied the knot this weekend in a private wedding in Austin, Texas, at the 42-year-old actor's expansive estate.

Only a few dozen intimate friends and family were invited to the affair, which provided an impromptu campground complete with tents for guests to stay on the property and sleep overnight.

The couple made their engagement announcement just last Christmas, but say they feel as if they've already been married for a long time: "We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together. So we've been living a married life this whole time."
