Eva Amurri marries Kyle Martino; Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins host

Eva Amurri and Susan Sarandon

Eva Amurri -- daughter of Susan Sarandon -- has married former soccer star Kyle Martino, and here's betting the wedding-night lingerie was fabulous.

Amurri, 26, famously received Martino's proposal the day after a Maxim photo shoot that showed off quite a bit of the Sarandon offspring's skin. The photos recall Mom's "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me" moment in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," a song she performed while wearing a white bra and panties.

Sarandon and Tim Robbins -- with whom Sarandon split in 2009 after a 23-year relationship -- were hosts of the wedding, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Amurri's father is Italian filmmaker Franco Amurri, but Eva was just 3 years old when Sarandon and Robbins got together. The couple gave Amurri two brothers: Miles and Jack.

The wedding party reportedly made a weekend of it, with cocktails, oysters and a scavenger hunt.  Interesting to note: Sister Helen Prejean officiated at the wedding ceremony, held in Charleston, S.C. Sarandon portrayed Prejean, the anti-death penalty activist nun, in the movie "Dead Man Walking."

Amurri, like Mom, is an actress. She's had a recurring role in "Californication" as the stripper Jackie -- in keeping with the underwear theme. "Stripping is not easy," Amurri says in a video on the Showtime website; she said she had extensive bruises and gained new respect for pole dancers. 

As she settles into life as the wife of a soccer-star-turned-broadcaster, Amurri has new projects coming out, including the Adam Sandler movie "I Hate You Dad," in which Sarandon also has a role.  There's no information on whether Amurri will be seen in her undies.

But it's not only lingerie that Amurri is fond of. She's a fashion fan, and she, her mother and her bridesmaids wore Lela Rose at her wedding.  Chances are good that Amurri took no advice on choice of dress from her mother, whom she dissed in 2008 for poor style sense.

"She is really very very very disinterested in fashion. ... She wears her gym clothes from when she comes back from the gym until night. Sometimes she puts a jacket over it if I really beg her to, but she doesn’t really care very much."

Luckily, Mom doesn't hold a grudge and throws a fabulous party.

Ava Sambora, cast by Judd Apatow, follows mom into the biz [Pics]

Ava Sambora and her mom, Heather Locklear

Ava Sambora, Heather Locklear's mini-me, will join a rather elite club with her upcoming role in the Judd Apatow movie "This Is Forty": She, like celebrity kids Mamie Gummer and Eva Amurri before her, is following an actress mom into a show-business career.

Mamie and Eva who, you say? Gummer is the look-alike daughter of Meryl Streep. Her dad is Donald J. Gummer (Donald who?), a sculptor, and Amurri is the offspring of Susan Sarandon and director Franco Amurri.

Ava's dad, Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora, has mostly confined his movie experiences to soundtracks. So the 13-year-old, who also has done some modeling, gets her acting chops from Locklear. Locklear had her big film break at the comparatively ripe old age of 23 with the 1984 movie "Firestarter" -- in which Drew Barrymore (granddaughter, by the way, of legendary actor John Barrymore) stirred up flames.

Coincidentally, Locklear starred in a 2008 TV movie with a title similar to Ava's new film -- "Flirting With Forty" -- though the actress, who turns 50 next month, was beyond flirting with the big 4-0 at that point.

Ava is set to play best friend to the character played by Maude Apatow in the film. Which brings us to another mother-daughter actress combo.

Thirteen-year-old Maude's mother, actress Leslie Mann, will play her mother in the film. Younger sister Iris also has a role, and dad Judd Apatow is directing the whole lot of them.

"This Is Forty" is a follow-up to Apatow's "Knocked Up," in which Maude and Iris also appeared. But it's not a sequel, according to Paul Rudd, who will join Mann as they re-create their roles from the funny and frequently raunchy original.

"It isn't a sequel. Leslie Mann and I are playing the same characters that we did in 'Knocked Up,' and it's kind of our story," Rudd says in a Belfast Telegraph interview.

Rudd, who married girlfriend Julie Yaeger in 2003, has two kids, son Jack and daughter Darby. It does not appear, at this time, that they will act in or help direct the movie. Too bad, as there's additional incentive in casting family members along the way, Apatow noted in February.

"This is how I pay for their college education," the director joked to On the Red Carpet. "I put them in movies and pay them SAG scale."

Eva Amurri, Susan Sarandon's daughter, engaged to Kyle Martino

Eva-amurri Eva Amurri, the actress daughter of Susan Sarandon, is engaged to Kyle Martino, a former pro soccer player who spent two years with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

"The most wonderful man on this planet is now my FIANCEE!!!!!! #Engaged!," Amurri said Saturday on Twitter. 

Martino chimed in Sunday: "Thanks to all my Tweeps for the comments and best wishes for Eva and I. We are so happy and can't wait to set the date. #virtualfamily."

Amurri, Sarandon's 25-year-old daughter with French director Franco Amurri, has been seen in episodes of "Californication," "Mercy" and "House, M.D." Her first film credit was in Tim Robbins' "Bob Roberts," and she played the 9-year-old version of her mom's character in "Dead Man Walking," for which Sarandon won a best actress Oscar.

Sarandon and Robbins split in 2009 after 23 years together; they had never married.

Martino, 29, does color commentary for ESPN and other networks. The 2002 Major League Soccer rookie of the year's pro career ended in 2008.

"Having to stop playing because of an injury and being young in this industry, I'm commenting on players that I played with and against," Martino told the Shin Guardian blog earlier this year, in an interview non-soccer fans will find notable because of the cute pic of the groom-to-be. "I'll be doing that for the next 10 years."

The Ministry, by the way, loves the idea of an engagement with more than one hashtag.

Critics' Choice Awards: The ladies host, win and smooch

Streep and Bullock
Bigelow Girls rocked at the 15th annual Critics' Choice Awards on Friday night. As Kristin Chenoweth pointed out with much perkiness, she was the event's first woman host, and Kathryn Bigelow was the first woman to nab best director, for the much-buzzed-about "The Hurt Locker," which also picked up best picture. You go, girls.

Then of course there was the shocking-but-not-really married-woman-on-married-woman smack-on-the-mouth kiss that Sandra Bullock bestowed on Meryl Streep when they tied for best actress. Alright, ladies, we get it. You're wacky.

Bullock, who was honored for "The Blind Side," was one of the evening's surprises. Clearly, even she didn't expect to be onstage with Streep. "To the critics, I bet you never saw this coming," she said.

Another much loved but rarely honored star was best actor Jeff Bridges, who has racked up multiple noms for Oscars, Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards but never won. ...
