Date: 17th April 2002
Benjamin Bratt's secret marriage to Talisa Soto has come as a shock to everyone - including his pal Sandra Bullock.
Bullock, who co-starred with the Latin hunk in the comedy Miss Congeniality (2000), was attending the New York premiere of her new movie Murder By Numbers (2002) on Tuesday (16th April 2002), when she was asked about the good news by a reporter on America's E! network.
She replied, "Wait a minute, what? What good news?" When she was able to compose herself, she continued, "Talisa is an amazing woman and he did it quietly and the right way. I had no idea - but I knew it was coming. I'm so happy because she's a good woman - and sexy too. He's an okay looking guy too."
Pinero co-stars Bratt and Soto were married in a low-key ceremony in San Francisco, California - just as they had announced their engagement.
