Officially hitched

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, who had refused to confirm their Sept. 24 wedding, have opened up their photo album, Associated Press reports.

Photos published yesterday by OK! magazine, which paid an undisclosed sum for the pictures, show the couple tying the knot in a Kabbalah ceremony at their Beverly Hills, Calif., home.

Mr. Kutcher, 27, is wearing a cream Brooks Bros. suit and a fedora. Miss Moore, 42, is wearing a white Lanvin gown.

Miss Moore’s ex-husband, Bruce Willis, and their three daughters, Rumer, 17, Scout, 14, and Tallulah, 11, attended the ceremony. Other guests included actor Wilmer Valderrama, Mr. Kutcher’s “That ‘70s Show” co-star.

It was the first marriage for Mr. Kutcher. Miss Moore’s marriage to Mr. Willis ended in 2000. She was married to rocker Freddie Moore from 1980 to 1984.

U2 miffed at pols

The superstar rockers of U2 have expressed outrage that American politicians from both main parties, including Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, are using their concerts to fill campaign coffers, according to Agence France-Presse.

The story appeared yesterday on Drudgereport.com.

“The U2 concerts are categorically not fundraisers for any politician. They are rock concerts for U2 fans,” the band’s publicist said.

Mrs. Clinton has “invited” 18 people to join her in a luxury suite for U2’s sold-out concert Wednesday at the MCI Center — a stop on the band’s Vertigo tour — as long as they contribute $2,500 dollars to the Democratic Party.

Luxury suites at the center cost $7,000 and offer a close-up view of the stage.

“We do a meet-and-greet with the senator and then go in and listen to music,” said Ann Lewis, the former first lady’s spokeswoman.

Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Rick Santorum is holding a $1,000-per-person fundraiser at U2’s show in Philadelphia this weekend, according to published reports.

Jude, Sienna part ways

Sienna Miller and Jude Law have ended their engagement months after he apologized for an affair with his children’s nanny, according to a published report.

A London-based representative for Miss Miller, who became engaged to her “Alfie” co-star at Christmas, refused comment yesterday on the story, which was posted on People magazine’s Web site. The magazine did not name any sources.

Public Eye, the London firm that represents Miss Miller, said it would not comment on her personal life. Associated Press sent an e-mail to Tor Belfrage, Mr. Law’s Los Angeles-based representative, seeking comment early yesterday.

British media reported this week that Miss Miller, 23, had been seeing Mr. Law’s friend Daniel Craig while Mr. Law was fighting to win her back. Miss Miller and Mr. Craig appeared together in the 2004 film “Layer Cake.”

Last month, Miss Miller was quoted as saying, “There’s nothing going on between me and Daniel. We were in a movie together two years ago.”

Mr. Craig’s credits include the 2005 thriller “The Jacket,” starring Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley. The blond, blue-eyed British-born actor also has been mentioned as the new James Bond.

No. 3 for Woody

Woody Harrelson, who plays a father of 10 in the new movie “The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio,” says he’s going to be a real-life dad for the third time.

It will be the third child for Mr. Harrelson and his wife, Laura Louie. The couple have two daughters, Deni and Zoe.

Mr. Harrelson, 44, who became popular as the simple straight-man bartender on the sitcom “Cheers,” has appeared in dozens of movies, including “The People vs. Larry Flint” — for which he earned an Oscar nomination — “Natural Born Killers” and “Wag the Dog.”

In “Prize Winner,” opening tomorrow, he plays Kelly Ryan, husband of Evelyn Ryan, who kept her family financially afloat by winning jingle contests in the 1950s.

$4M for Clapton tome

The auction of Eric Clapton’s memoirs ended when Random House offered more than $4 million for the book, reports the Bookstandard.com.

Ed Victor, Mr. Clapton’s agent, auctioned the book among the four parties with the highest initial offers. “I am a very happy agent,” Mr. Victor said.

Mr. Clapton will write the book with Christopher Simon Sykes, whose most recent work is “The Big House: The Story of a Country House and Its Family” (HarperCollins). Mr. Clapton’s book will be published in 2007.
