Duvall Farm Wedding Was Extra Special For Director

Moviemaker SCOTT COOPER has pledged to find roles for film legend ROBERT DUVALL in all his projects after the actor helped him stage a dream wedding at his historic Virginia horse farm.
Cooper was working on Civil War epic Gods & Generals with Duvall when the movie veteran invited him home for lunch - and then insisted he stage his impending nuptials there.
Cooper recalls, "It was very magical. We grew very close and he knew that I was engaged and my wife and I are both from Virginia. He lives in horse country up there and Mr. Duvall had me out to lunch one day to his home, which is in the national registry; it's an historic place because it's pre-Revolutionary War and was reputed to have been visited by George Washington on many occasions.
"It's stunning, literally like heaven. He said, 'What do you think of this place?' I said it was incredibly gorgeous. It looked like England. He said, 'I'd like you to get married here.' I didn't even have to call my wife. I said, 'We accept!'
"It was a very beautiful garden wedding and very special to me, and my wife wants to be buried on his farm."
