Sandra Bullock marries reality TV star Sunday, July 17, 2005; Posted: 8:27 p.m. EDT (00:27 GMT)
LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Actress Sandra Bullock, star of "Miss Congeniality," has married reality TV star Jesse James at a ranch in the California wine country near Santa Barbara, according to media reports.
Several hundred people attended the sunset ceremony Saturday at a large rented ranch in the picturesque Santa Ynez valley, according to Web sites for syndicated TV show "Entertainment Tonight," and People and US Weekly magazines.
It was the first marriage for Bullock, who will turn 41 later this month. She was previously engaged to actor Tate Donovan and romantically linked to actor Matthew McConaughey.
James, 35, has been married twice before, most recently to adult-film star Janine Lindemulder. He has three children.
According to the Web site for People, the pair arrived in a red monster truck with James driving. The guests were shuttled to the ranch from area hotels and weren't told they were there for a wedding until shortly before the ceremony took place.
Guests included actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Regina King and actor William Shatner, according to "Entertainment Tonight."
For wedding bands, Bullock wore a vintage ring by Neil Lane. James wore a ring made by Bullock herself out of steel.
A spokeswoman for Bullock was not immediately available for comment Sunday.
Bullock, who typically plays a good girl in her film roles, met the tattooed James, who is also a motorcycle mechanic, in 2003.
James is the founder of West Coast Choppers, which manufactures high-end motorcycles and includes a number of celebrity clients, and produces and stars in The Discovery Channel's "Monster Garage." James also claims to be distantly related to the famous 19th-century outlaw by the same name.
