“Late Night” host Jimmy Kimmel was probably stunned to see two women in wedding dresses on his big day Saturday. Though he is usually on the giving end of pranks, Kimmel got a taste of his own medicine with a perfectly executed wedding day prank.
“Precious” actress Gabourey Sidibe put on a flowing white wedding dress and a veil and showed up to the ceremony in Ojai, Calif., as a joke. Kimmel’s wife, writer Molly McNearney, was reportedly behind the stunt all along.
Here’s a photo of Sidibe as Kimmel’s fake bride:
But Sidibe didn’t want to steal too much attention from the real bride. She later changed into a red dress and laughed off the joke with Kimmel, the Daily Mail reports.
“Kimmel and McNearey began dating in 2009 and got engaged in August 2012. Their star-studded wedding was held at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa,” the Huffington Post notes.
