Joseph Gordon-Levitt weds Silicon Valley CEO

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the thinking person's heartthrob, pulled off a ninja-stealthy wedding to his girlfriend late last month, USA Today confirmed Thursday.

But crestfallen fans of the “Don Jon” actor can take some solace in knowing that his new bride, Tasha McCauley, is a Bay Area girl — and an evil robotics scientist.

Well, maybe the evil part is a stretch, but according to People magazine, she's the co-founder and CEO of Mountain View-based Fellow Robots, which creates sophisticated retail robots. How sophisticated? The USC graduate's company is based at NASA Research Park at Moffett Field.

The zealously private Gordon-Levitt has kept the relationship shielded from the eyes of the paparazzi.

“The girl that I'm with, she really doesn't want to be a part of that,” he told Howard Stern in a 2013 interview.

And if Gordon-Levitt wants to avoid any accidental run-ins with supersmart, superstrong robots, he'll try to keep McCauley happy.


A wave of criticism forced Selena Gomez to remove a revealing picture of her at a mosque from Instagram on Thursday. What is she revealing, exactly? Her ankle.

The pop star visited Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with buddy Kylie Jenner and a gaggle of other moderately famous youngsters. The picture shows Gomez wearing an abaya, a full-body robe that covers the hair — and lifting up one corner to reveal her midcalf leggings.

The relatively minor transgression, though, didn't stop gossip sites from writing inspired headlines, like Jezebel's “Selena Gomez Angers Abu Dhabi Community After Stripping in Mosque” or TMZ's “Selena Gomez ANKLE PORN Pisses Off Mosque Leaders.” Now that's revealing.


Crooner and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, opening his show with the classy San Francisco Symphony on New Year's Eve, told Davies Symphony Hall concertgoers he hoped they would get their “Groupons' worth.” … Dream team Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello spent New Year's Eve at a Britney Spears concert in Las Vegas with none other than former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.


Jazz singer-musician Trombone Shorty is 29. … Actress Paz Vega (“Grace of Monaco”) is 39. … Actor Dax Shepard (“Idiocracy”) is 40. … Musician Scott Underwood of Train is 44. … Actor Taye Diggs (“Rent”) is 44. … Actress-singer Tia Carrere (“Wayne's World”) is 48. … Movie director Todd Haynes (“Velvet Goldmine”) is 54. … Actress Wendy Phillips (“Falcon Crest”) is 63.
