Hayek married in Italian wedding

Mexican actress Salma Hayek and French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault have married for a second time, this time in a romantic Italian wedding.

People.com said in an exclusive report that the 30 Rock actress married Pinault in Venice on Saturday with scores of family members and celebrities in attendance.

The 42-year-old actress originally married Pinault, 46, in Paris on Valentine's Day in a civil ceremony.

But Saturday's ceremony at the La Fenice opera house in Venice featured Hayek in a Balenciaga wedding gown being serenaded by guests singing Over the Rainbow.

Among those notable names in attendance to the couple's second marriage ceremony were actresses Penelope Cruz, Charlize Theron and Ashley Judd. Actors Edward Norton and Woody Harrelson were also in attendance.

People.com said Saturday's ceremony, which was also attended by former French President Jacques Chirac, was preceded on Friday with a masked ball for wedding guests at the historic Punta Della Dogana.
