Bell told the host of the show, James Corden, that he got married right across the street. Bell stated that he woke from his bed, freshened up, took breakfast and walked across the street to his wedding. Rachel’s ex husband revealed that he and Mara tried in vain to find a suitable location for their wedding ceremony and they settled on a unanimous decision to approach a neighbor who lived in a house they felt was very beautiful and a classic one. So they went and asked the woman who owned the housed if they could do their wedding there and she accepted right away.

Jamie Bell will star in Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool
When “Billy Elliot”, “Fantastic Four”, “The Adventures of Tintin”, and “King Kong” actor, Jamie Bell read the script for “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” he thought it was just a bizarre piece of fiction but the fact is, the film is based on Peter Turner’s memoir of his relationship with Gloria Grahame, a movie star depicted by Annette Bening, who was close to 30 years older than him. Jamie Bell will be playing the role of the young lover and the movie looks like it’s going to be an epic one. We can only wait to watch it on the big screen. The producer of the film, Barbara Broccoli knew Gloria and Peter personally and she told Bell that the couple never stood out. To her, they were not an extraordinary couple, and someone couldn’t look at them twice. Rachel’s ex husband Bell stated that Broccoli told him that they were just an ordinary couple in love. The film had to do with nonjudgement and affection in its purest form. The film is set in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s when there was no IMDb and Twitter when one could know everything about a person. There was nothing judgmental about the loves coming together, their flaws and all. Bell didn’t feel any pressure to impersonate Peter Turner who is a real person and he’s alive but not known to the public. However, there was some pressure to represent him and his entire family in a way that was comfortable with them and represent the relationship as well. If the love story wouldn’t work, then the whole movie would fail and then Bell fails Turner and so he was afraid of letting him down.
