Close, 58, and Shaw, 54, were wed on Friday, according to the Scarborough town clerk's office.

The actress is a five-time Oscar nominee whose films include ``Dangerous Liaisons,'' ``Fatal Attraction,'' ``The Natural'' and ``The Big Chill.''

Close has been married twice before _ to Cabot Wade from 1969-71, and to James Marlas from 1984-87. Both marriages ended in divorce.

Shaw is the founder and former head of Idexx Laboratories Inc., a publicly traded biotech company in Westbrook with more than $600 million in annual revenues.

The ceremony took place at Shaw's oceanside home on historic Prout's Neck, The Boston Globe reported.
