When the stars align

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Eguide Music - CAMERON ADAMS

WHEN rock stars aren’t mar­ry­ing mod­els, they’re walk­ing ac­tors down the aisle. Mar­cus Mum­ford mar­ried The Great Gatsby/ An Ed­u­ca­tion star Carey Mul­li­gan ( both pic­tured) inside a barn in Som­er­set, in April. Guests in­cluded Sienna Miller, Jake Gyl­len­haal and Colin Firth. Mum­ford po­litely de­clines to talk about his pri­vate life, but ad­mits his rapid dive into the celebrity world has been ‘‘ mixed’’ and says, ‘‘ It’s not as bad as peo­ple think.’’

HERE ARE MORE BIG STAGE/ BIG SCREEN COU­PLINGS

MATT BEL­LAMY & KATE HUD­SON

No stranger to rock stars, she was pre­vi­ously mar­ried to and had a child with Chris Robin­son of the Black Crowes fame. Hud­son met the Muse singer at Coachella. He liked it, but so far has only put an en­gage­ment ring on it. Kids: Son Bing­ham.

Song about wife: Stay tuned to this year’s new Muse al­bum. Will make a change from singing about aliens and im­pend­ing doom.

CHRIS MARTIN & GWYNETH PAL­TROW

They met back­stage at a Cold­play gig in 2002, bond­ing over the veg­e­tar­ian and mac­ro­bi­otic cater­ing pre­sum­ably. Martin has gone all In­cred­i­ble Hulk to pro­tect her from pushy pa­parazzi in the past. Kids: Daugh­ter Ap­ple and son Moses. Song about wife: Fix You was writ­ten to help Pal­trow af­ter her fa­ther’s death.

MANDY MOORE & RYAN ADAMS

Sweet Mandy mar­ried alt- rocker Ryan Adams in 2009. He got sober soon af­ter. Kids: Not yet. Song about wife: You be the judge, Ryan won’t say. ‘‘ Songs don’t func­tion if they are ex­plained. It puts out the fire.’’

KEITH UR­BAN & NI­COLE KID­MAN

Their meet­ing may be the only thing of note to come out of G’Day LA. They mar­ried in 2006, months be­fore Keith en­tered re­hab. Keef’s new drug? Love. Kids: Sunday Rose and Faith Mar­garet.

Songs about wife: Have you heard his
