Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel got married.

“It’s great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends,” the couple said in a statement released Friday to People magazine.

The 31-year-old Timberlake and 30-year-old Biel were wed in southern Italy. The couple got engaged in December after dating for several years.

Timberlake, who has been acting more than singing lately, stars in the Clint Eastwood baseball film, “The Trouble with the Curve.” Biel stars in the remake of “Total Recall.” She will next be seen in “Hitchcock.”

ABC and Tom Hanks are apologizing after the actor let slip a swear word during a live appearance on “Good Morning America.”

Hanks telegraphed his “f-bomb” during an interview Friday. Anchor Elizabeth Vargas had asked him to speak in his character’s British accent in the movie “Cloud Atlas.” Hanks said that it was “mostly swear words,” but Vargas told him to go ahead anyway.

He began speaking in a mumble but the obscenity was clearly audible. ABC removed it for subsequent feeds of the show in the Midwest and West.

Vargas quickly said, “We are so sorry, `Good Morning America.”’ Hanks also apologized — and said he’d probably have a seven-second delay next time he’s on the show.

Some Colorado fans are upset after music superstar Madonna used guns during a performance.

Madonna started her show Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver with a gun scene, which she has used in previous performances.

According to KUSA-TV, the station received several calls Friday from concert-goers saying they were offended she used guns and violence as part of her show in light of recent events in the state that included a mass shooting at a theater during a Batman movie on July 20 that left 12 people dead.

In a statement before beginning the tour, Madonna said she does not condone the use of guns. She said she is using the guns as symbols of intolerance and “the pain I have felt from having my heart broken.”

A day after earning his high school diploma, an excited Drake performed hit songs for a few hundred people at an event for Tyra Banks.

The 25-year-old told the crowd Thursday night that he took a small break from music and “spent some time going back to high school.”

“I got my high school diploma,” he said with excitement as the crowd roared.

Drake also posted on Twitter late Wednesday that he earned a 97 percent on his final exam and an 88 percent in his last class through work with a private tutor.

The Canadian dropped out of high school, ironically, to star in the high school TV series “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” He played the role of Jimmy Brooks.
