Two big-name celebs are on opposite romantic trajectories: Alicia Silverstone just filed for divorce, while Hugh Grant just got married. Details:

  • Silverstone: The 41-year-old Clueless actress filed for divorce from estranged husband Chris Jarecki, reports US Weekly. The two married in 2005 but had been together for 20 years. They have a 7-year-old son, Bear Blu. The divorce papers cited irreconcilable differences.
  • Grant: The longtime bachelor married Swedish girlfriend Anna Eberstein Friday in London, reports People. Grant is 57 and Eberstein is 39, and they already have three children together after six on-and-off years as a couple. They had "a low-key civil ceremony" at the Chelsea Register Office, per Reuters.
