Jimmy Kimmel wedding: Gabourey Sidibe pranks him arriving in white wedding dress
Actress Gabourey Sidibe appeared to be pulling a prank on Jimmy Kimmel, wearing a white wedding dress as she arrived at his ceremony in Ojai, California on Saturday.
Taking on the role of his bride-to-be, the 30-year-old Precious star stepped out of her black Escalade limousine in the flowing gown and accompanying veil.
And Oscar winner Gabourey Sidibe even had a gal pal holding her train as she strolled across the stone path.
Avoiding the sun, Gabourey Sidibe also covered herself with a dark green umbrella.
Later, Gabourey Sidibe slipped into a red frock and white flats at the star-studded event, allowing Jimmy Kimmel’s bride Molly McNearney to be the center of attention.
Jimmy Kimmel, 45, seemed to appreciate the stunt, laughing as he greeted the actress inside the reception.
He tied the knot with his fiancée Molly McNearney at a lavish country ceremony in a quaint hill town high above Santa Barbara, California, his publicist has confirmed.
According to People magazine, invitations to the wedding requested that guests make a charitable donation in lieu of wedding gifts.
Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearney have been together since October 2011 and got engaged last August while on vacation at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
They would appear to be a match made in TV heaven with Molly McNearney being the head writer on Jimmy Kimmel’s chat show, Jimmy Kimmel Live.
There will certainly be no shortage of laughter in their marital home.
It will be the second wedding for the hugely popular Jimmy Kimmel Live host who was married to first wife Gina for 14 years before they divorced in 2002. Jimmy and Gina Kimmel have two children together.
Jimmy Kimmel then went on to date satirical comedienne Sarah Silverman, 42, but the couple broke up in July 2008 after five years together.
Recently Jimmy Kimmel spoke about the upcoming ceremony, saying: “It’ll be mostly a family affair, and there will be a Catholic priest officiating… I’m not that involved with the wedding planning, but I will be there.”
