Jacobi's Low-Profile Partnership
Veteran British actor SIR DEREK JACOBI has 'married' his long-term boyfriend RICHARD CLIFFORD in a low profile ceremony. The GLADIATOR star rejected magazine offers for flamboyant celebrations in favour of a quick and intimate ceremony. He says, "I've now been there, done that, and got the T-shirt. We just went to the registry office, signed a bit of paper and it was all over. We didn't have a bit party, but we had 25 friends to lunch. I was very quiet though, all over in a morning." Same-sex civil partnerships were made legal in Britain in December (05).
