E! Online reports that Scottish actor Alan Cumming has married his boyfriend of two years in a civil ceremony in Britain.

lan Cumming and graphic artist Grant Shaffer tied the knot Saturday in a civil ceremony at the Old Royal Naval College near London, E! Online’s own Marc Malkin reports.

According to Cumming’s rep, the celeb-studded guest list included Sir Ian McKellen, Geri Halliwell, Rufus Wainwright and Mary-Elizabeth Mastrantonio.

“Not only are we so happy to be able to celebrate our love for each other, but also to be able to do it in a country that properly recognizes the rights of same-sex couples,” Cumming, who shares a New York apartment with the American-born Shaffer, said in a statement.

“As residents of America we would have loved to marry there, but we hope that soon the civil rights that we have been afforded in the U.K. will be available to all gay Americans, and we look forward to celebrating not only our marriage, but the end of prejudice.”

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is alive?

This is hot. Congrats to these two. Hopefully, his signature scent Cumming wasn’t the wedding favor. As for celebrating the end of prejudice, good luck, Pollyana. *rolls eyes*

    Wait a minute. Wasn’t Cumming married to Jennifer Jason Leigh a while ago? When did he turn gay (I mean it was obvious the whole time, but…)???
