RuPaul ru-vealed on Hollywood Today Live that he and his longtime boyfriend, an Australian rancher (get it!), got hitched in January, “really for tax breaks,” he said on the show; Dave Franco, James’ baby bro, and actress Alison Brie married on the hush at some point recently; Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and her guy, a scientist she met at NYU, wed in a City Hall ceremony last month; actors and soon-to-be-parents Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski also made it official; and Tyrese married his non-famous social worker bae in a surprise wedding on Valentine’s Day.
