It was goofy as all hell, but there was a charm to the "Austin Powers" trilogy (okay, maybe just the first two movies) that made them wildly entertaining. Sure, the franchise's many catchphrases have been run into the ground, but who takes the blame for that, the movie or the people who still thought it was funny to say "YEAH baby!" ten years later? Well, those quote-mongers have something to jump about today as Mike Myers has officially signed on to do "Austin Powers 4."
Actor Mike Myers really is a man of mystery.
Page Six is reporting that the “Shrek” creator married his longtime girlfriend, Kelly Tisdale, five months ago in a private ceremony.
Myers’ rep confirmed the “beautiful” event took place in New York City where the 47-year-old actor and his lady reside.
Tisdale and Myers relationship became public knowledge in 2006, just after Myers broke off his 12-year marriage to Robin Ruzan.
