Congratulations to Alan Rickman and his sweetheart of more than 50 years Rima Horton! The ‘Harry Potter’ star and his longtime love recently tied the knot in a secret ceremony.
Alan Rickman, 69, finally walked down the aisle with his longtime partner Rima Horton, 68. The pair, who have been living with each other since 1977, finally decided to officially seal the deal in a secret ceremony in New York. HollywoodLife.com has all the details.
Alan Rickman Married: ‘Harry Potter’ Actor Weds Rima Horton
Wedding bells were ringing for Alan and Rima in a low-key ceremony in New York. The actor revealed to Germany’s “Bild” newspaper that the couple enjoyed exchanging vows in an intimate setting without guests.
“We are married. Just recently. It was great, because no one was there,” the Love Actually star explained. “After the wedding in New York we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and ate lunch.”
Alan Rickman Bought His Wife A Modest Wedding Band
Keeping things even more fuss-free, Alan added that his sweetheart didn’t want a flashy ring, so he bought her a modest $200 band. Yet, it seems that it was a little bit too simple for his economist bride, who he joked “never wears it.”
Speaking to Hello magazine, Alan gushed about his lady and their unbreakable bond. He told the weekly, “I think every relationship should be allowed to have its own rules. She’s tolerant. She’s incredibly tolerant. Unbelievably tolerant. Possibly a candidate for sainthood.”
Alan is best known for his role as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films — so the good news will certainly thrill his many fans. We previously reported that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling recently published the short story Cokeworth, which is based on the character Severus Snape.
So, HollywoodLifers – do you think 50 years should be the standard before couples walk down the aisle? Sound off in the comments!
