Holmes And Cruise Choose Popular Wedding Spot And Day

TOM CRUISE and KATIE HOLMES are just the latest in a string of celebrity couples to marry in the picturesque lakeside town of Bracciano, Italy. Cruise, 44, and Holmes, 27, will marry on Saturday (18NOV06) in the town's 16th century medieval Castello Odescalchi after a 19 month courtship. CNN journalist CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR married former US State Department spokesman JAMES RUBIN in the castle in August 1998, which was attended by the late JOHN F KENNEDY JR and his wife CAROLYN BESSETTE. Italian pop heart-throb EROS RAMAZZOTTI and new wife MICHELLE HUNZIKER also had their wedding reception in the castle. Twenty-eight years ago (79), legendary filmmaker MARTIN SCORSESE made ISABELLA ROSSELLINI the third Mrs Scorsese in the town. Rossellini grew up in Rome and had fond memories of Bracciano as a child. As far back as the 1940s, celebrities were tying the knot in the town - original ZORRO star TYRONE POWER wed Mexican beauty LINDA CHRISTIAN there in 1949. However, Bracciano may not be a good luck charm for Holmes and Cruise - three of the four previous famous stars to marry in the town have divorced within four to six years later. The 18 November is also the wedding anniversary of CATHERINE ZETA-JONES and MICHAEL DOUGLAS; QUEEN guitarist BRIAN MAY and actress ANITA DOBSON; and late author JACK KEROUAC and his third wife STELLA.
