"We're married, I mean, we've got kids and a family and... we are in it. I think if we do get married it'll be for the kids really, whereas for us we're just... we're happy. There is something beautiful about the security of marriage, but I mean, we'll get there when we get there." Kate Hudson insists marriage is no longer a priority for her. She became engaged to rocker Matt Bellamy in 2011. The couple has a three-year-old son named Bingham together, while the actress is also mum to 10-year-old boy Ryder, from her first marriage to Chris Robinson.
"He's such a wonderful boy. He terrorises Ryder, which is weird because Ryder's so much older than him... Ryder's very patient with him. But he's getting big." Actress Kate Hudson admits Bingham, her three-year-old son with rocker fiance Matt Bellamy, can be a handful for his older half-brother, 10-year-old Ryder, her only child with ex-husband Chris Robinson.
Actress Kate Hudson fuelled speculation her romance with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy is in trouble after ditching her engagement ring for the Oscars on Sunday (02Mar14). The Almost Famous star has been engaged to the British rocker since 2011, but rumours surfaced last week (ends28Feb14) suggesting their four-year relationship had hit a stumbling block.
A source told People magazine, "Kate and Matt have been on the rocks for some time. They're not in a great place."
Representatives for the pair refused to comment on the claims, but Hudson's diamond sparkler was noticeably absent from her ring finger as she walked the red carpet solo at the Academy Awards on Sunday, when she wore a stunning Atelier Versace dress.
The blonde beauty, whose mother Goldie Hawn and her partner Kurt Russell were also in attendance at the Oscars, was also sans engagement ring five days earlier, when she appeared at BVLGARI's Decades of Glamour event on Tuesday (25Feb14).
Hudson and Bellamy, who are parents to two-year-old son Bingham, were last spotted in public together in December (13), when the actress and her two kids joined Bellamy's family for Christmas.
She is also mum to 10-year-old son Ryder, from her previous marriage to Black Crowes rocker Chris Robinson.
The Almost Famous star is set to exchange vows with Muse frontman Bellamy, who proposed in April 2011, and insists she will be closely guarding details of the ceremony.
She tells USA Today, "I think until the day we get married, the answer is going to be, 'We have no intention right now of getting married.' And then you'll find out we got married.
"We have an idea. It's starting to formulate but it's a timing thing. But honestly, right now, Matt is touring. Ryder is in school. I'm working."
Hudson's eight-year-old son Ryder is from her previous marriage to Black Crowes rocker Chris Robinson, while she gave birth to Bingham, her first child with Bellamy, in July 2011.
While we were ecstatic about the news that 98 Degrees might be reuniting for a 15-city tour this summer, there's one woman who was much less amused by the rumor. And no, it's not because she's a die-hard ‘NSYNC fan. Vanessa Lachey is set to give birth in the fall, and thus a tour would take her husband Nick Lachey away from her in the final weeks of her pregnancy.
Vanessa tells E! that her husband will remain by her side — for now, at least. "They broke up about 10 years ago and they've always talked about a reunion," she explains. "As of now, he will not be on tour." Of course, after the baby is born, there's no reason that the Lacheys couldn't go on the road together.
And if Vanessa does decide to join her husband on tour, she'll be in good company. For some reason actors and musicians are the peanut butter and jelly of the entertainment world. Just take a look at these other high-profile groupies.
Beyonce is fond of saying that she hadn't really dated anyone before Jay-Z, but there are rumors that she had a relationship with rapper/former B2K member Marques Houston. Even if they never hooked up, she deserves a place on the list just for those adorable videos of her rocking out at Jay-Z concerts.
Gwyneth is living the groupie's dream. She met Chris Martin backstage at a Coldplay concert and they went on to get married and have two kids. However, remember we're not talking about a mere mortal here. This is the same lady who dated both Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt.
Kate Hudson got her first big break playing groupie Penny Lane in Almost Famous and it turns out the role wasn't too much of a stretch for her. Both of her children were fathered by famous rockers. Ryder is the son of ex-husband Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes — and last year, she and fiance Matthew Bellamy of Muse welcomed a boy named Bingham.
Anderson was married to both Tommy Lee of Motley Crue and Kid Rock. Plus, just to round out her rock star resume, she made a sex tape with Bret Michaels of Poison.
Tommy Lee's other ex, Heather Locklear, has a soft spot for musicians too. After she divorced Lee, she married Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. They divorced in 2007, and she moved on to fellow Melrose Place alum Jack Wagner.
The most surprising thing about Carmen Electra's short-lived marriage to Dennis Rodman: The fact that he wasn't a musician. Electra has dated Tommy Lee, Prince, and B-Real of Cypress Hill. She was also married to the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Dave Navarro and is currently engaged to Rob Patterson of the bands Otep and Filter.
If Ryder's exes banded together, they'd make up the weirdest musical group ever. Just picture Beck, Ryan Adams, Soul Asylum's David Pirner, Helmet's Page Hamilton, Jamiroquai's Jay Kay, Mystic Valley Band's Conor Oberst, Rilo Kiley's Blake Sennett, and Green Day's Tre Cool rocking out on stage. And don't forget Johnny Depp on the tambourine.

98 Degrees Reuniting? Good — They're The Best Boy Band of the '90s
Jessica Simpson: Queen of the Overshare
The Private Benjamin star began dating actor Russell in 1983 after they co-starred in Swing Shift, and they have become one of few Hollywood couples whose romance has stood the test of time - without the need for marriage rings.
Hawn is adamant she has no plans to take the relationship to the next level - because they are "happy" with their lifestyle.
Speaking on U.S. talk show The View on Friday (30Sep11), she said, "We're not gonna get married. I mean, we're happy. I still like the idea that I'm his girlfriend. And, in a way, the kids like it. We asked the kids about marriage early on and we said, 'Shall we get married?'... and they said, 'No, no!'"
But Hawn insists she would never force her own views on to her daughter Kate Hudson, who is preparing to wed for the second time after becoming a new mum.
Hawn explains, "I was married twice. I think that there's a sense of idealism really about wanting to be married and have a family... My feeling is our journey is our journey, and there isn't any way we're gonna put a stop or should (put a stop to it) because it's all a learning process. How are we gonna learn? How are we gonna know?
"We follow our instincts and impulses. If they're for the good, which is to create a family, to do something good, more power to you. If it works out, that's awesome. If it doesn't, well, you know you're part of a very large statistic. So I think the whole way of looking at it is with an optimistic view."
Hudson and British rock star Matt Bellamy announced their engagement in April (11) and welcomed their first child together, baby boy Bingham, in July (11). The Almost Famous actress was previously wed to The Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson.
The Almost Famous star gave birth to the couple's first child on Saturday (09Jul11) and now the Muse frontman has tweeted about the new arrival, Bingham Hawn Bellamy.
The proud dad writes, "So happy! Just had a baby boy, Bingham 'Bing' Hawn Bellamy. Born 7Ib 12Oz, on 9th July.
"Mum and baby are strong and healthy. Mum was a warrior, Bing popped out after 4.5 hours of intense pushing!"
Hudson, the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn, is also mother to seven-year-old son Ryder, from her marriage to rocker Chris Robinson.
Bingham is Bellamy's first child. The couple became engaged in April (11).

WHAT IT’S ABOUT?
Claire is an attractive CIA operative and Ray is an M16 agent who simultaneously leave their Governmental spy activities in the dust to try and profit from a battle between two rival multi-national corporations both trying to launch a new product that will transform the world and make billions. Their goal is to secure the top-secret formula and get a patent before they are outsmarted. While their respective egomaniacal CEOs engage in an unending battle of wills and one-upmanship Claire and Ray start out conning and playing one another in a clever game of industrial espionage that is even more complicated due to their own long-term romantic relationship.
WHO’S IN IT?
Reuniting Closer co-stars Julia Roberts (as Claire) and Clive Owen (as Ray) turns out to be an inspired idea. They turn out to be the perfect pair oozing movie-star charm and electricity in this elaborate con-game that might have been the kind of thing Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant might have made in the '60s (in fact they did in Charade). Roberts with that infamous hairstyle back the way we like it and Owen looking great in sunglasses prove they have what it takes to navigate us through this ultra-complex plot in which no one is sure who they can trust at any given moment. They play it all in high style and the wit just flows as the story skirts back and forth during the period of five years. The supporting cast is well-chosen with juicy roles for Tom Wilkinson and Paul Giamatti (out of their John Adams duds) as the two CEOs going for each other’s throats. Giamatti who sometimes has a tendency to overdo it is especially slimy here and great fun to watch.
Big-star studio movies today rarely take risks and often talk down to the audience but in Duplicity writer/director Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton) has crafted a complicated con-comedy that requires complete attention at all times just to keep up with the dense plot’s twists and turns. It’s the cinematic equivalent of a New York Times crossword puzzle and Gilroy and his top-drawer production team deliver a glossy beautiful-looking film that’s easy on the eyes hitting locations from Dubai to Rome to New York City.
Like any good puzzle it sometimes can be frustrating putting it all together and Gilroy’s habit of taking us back in time and then inching forward gets a little confusing even with the on-screen chyron pointing out where we are at any given moment. Stick with it though and you will be well-rewarded.
A scene near the end where the formula must be found scanned and faxed in a matter of minutes is sweat-inducing edge-of-your-seat moviemaking and it provides the ultimate opportunity for Roberts and Owen to take the “con” to the next level. Another where Roberts uses a thong to try and trick Owen into admitting an affair he never had is also priceless and gets right to the heart of the game-playing.
GO OUT AND GET POPCORN WHEN ...
Never. Stock up during the coming attractions. If you miss a moment of this entertaining romp you might never figure it all out.
