Nicole Kidman Enjoys Week of Celebrations Down Under
June 20, 2006

It was a down under paparazzi rush, as shutterbugs scrambled to congratulate Nicole Kidman on the wedding and her birthday!

The normally shy Oscar winning beauty came out of her Sydney mansion to say hello to the paparazzi as they sang happy birthday. When they thanked her for coming outside, she said, "My pleasure."

So what kind of celebration does Nicole have planned for her 39th birthday? "Not much," she admitted. "Just dinner at my mom's boring."

As for the weekend wedding, "Extra's" is your down under down-the-aisle destination! We've learned Nicole's sister Antonia will be her maid of honor, while Urban's brother Shane will be best man.

There will also be a strict ban on cell phones and cameras.

"It is expected to be a very Catholic wedding," People's Jess Cagle told us.

And on the guest list is Nicole and Tom's two adopted children, Isabell and Connor, who are expected to arrive in Sydney later this week.

Although the paparazzi won't be on the guest list, Nicole and Keith Urban made sure they got a wedding gift of their own, sending the lingering paparazzi a case of cold beer and a personal message, which read, "Enjoy -- Nicole and Keith."

As the paparazzi cheer down under, the rest of the world is cheering on CNN's Anderson Cooper for nabbing the exclusive first sit down interview with Angelina Jolie since she gave birth to Baby Shiloh last month.

In the interview, Angie dishes on her hot beau Brad Pitt, giving birth and wanting to adopt again.

CNN did not pay Miss Jolie to sit down with the "360" host, who used his blog to shoot down reports that the cable network had shelled out for Angelina's first interview since returning stateside. The star simply did it to help promote World Refugee Day.

Cooper's Angelina interview airs Tuesday night on CNN.

Another hot Hollywood couple making waves is Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, who got some romantic R&R together down south.

The super sexy couple has been vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, where Eva took time to do a little swimming with the local residents -- dolphins!

Meanwhile, another stunning beauty has found love in a feline friend.

"Catwoman" Halle Berry went out and picked up an adorable new life partner, and we're not talking about her hot model boyfriend, Gabriel Aubrey.

Halle's new kitten may be spending plenty of time with both Halle and Gabriel, as new reports claim the world's best looking couple is now sharing an address at Halle's two new Los Angeles area homes.
