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.
