10 Celebrities Who Love Rock Stars

Published on May 28, 2014. Updated April 4, 2017

Some celebrities have a thing for rock stars. Even with a sea of handsome and talented actors around them, they can’t help themselves. Rock stars don’t always have the best reputations. Many of them are known for abusing drugs and alcohol and for being womanizers. In spite of all the cons of dating a rock star, some women just cannot resist their charm. Here are 10 celebs who love rock stars!

10. Kate Hudson

After Kate Hudson starred in “Almost Famous” as groupie Penny Lane, it seemed inevitable that she would develop a thing for rock stars. As expected, she married Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes; however, after six years of marriage, these two suddenly called it quits. Following a string of failed romances, Hudson hooked up with Muse frontman, Matt Bellamy. These two are still going strong despite rumors to the contrary.

9. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow has had a thing for a couple of different rock stars. In 2002, she was spotted on a date with rocker Bryan Adams and, in 2003, she married Chris Martin, the lead singer for the band Coldplay. Unfortunately, her relationship with Martin didn’t last. They announced a few months ago that they had decided to “consciously uncouple” and since then the singer has been seen out with model Alexa Chung.

8. Liv Tyler

Liv Tyler is the daughter of Steven Tyler, the lead singer of Aerosmith, and Bebe Buell, one of the most famous groupies, so it kind of makes sense why she would be attracted to men in the music business. Liv proved that, like her mother, she has a thing for rock stars. She dated and married Royston Langdon of the band Spacehog; however, after about a decade together, these two called it quits in 2008. The former couple has a son together, Milo.

7. Evan Rachel Wood

Evan Rachel Wood was in a pretty intense on-off relationship with rocker Marilyn Manson from 2006 to 2010. The couple was even engaged at one point; however, it didn’t work out. Soon after, the “Running with Scissors” star rekindled her romance with Jamie Bell, an actor she dated before she hooked up with Manson. It looks like her attraction to rockers might be officially over – she married Bell in 2012 and they currently have one son together.

Before she settled down with Joel Madden, the guitarist for the band Good Charlotte, she was engaged to the late Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM.

5. Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra proved that she had a thing for rockers when she married Dave Navarro, a guitarist for Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction, back in 2003. After being married for three years, they called it quits in 2006. True to form, Electra moved on to Rob Patterson, the former touring guitarist for the band Korn; however, after four years together, these two called it quits in 2012. It looks like the former Baywatch babe is done with rock stars – she is currently dating Tal Cooperman, owner of the L.A.-based CRSL clothing line.

Avril Lavigne has married a couple of different rock stars. In 2006, she married Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 – who recently was hospitalized because of his rock star way of life – however, after a few years of marriage, she pulled the plug on that relationship. She is currently married to Chad Kroeger, the frontman of the band Nickleback. According to the songstress, these two try to keep things healthy by not partying when they are apart.

Kate Moss has always had a thing for rock stars. In the ‘90s, she allegedly hooked up with Evan Dando of The Lemonheads and then Antony Langdon of Spacehog. In 2005, she began a tempestuous relationship with Pete Doherty of The Libertines and Babyshambles and, in 2011, she married the guitarist for The Kills, Jamie Hince. Moss may be known for her modeling; however, she is also a singer. She has performed with Babyshambles and she sings on The Lemonheads’ song “Dirty Robot.”

2. Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson’s love of rock stars is something that has helped define her over the years. She had an incredibly tempestuous relationship with Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee and, after that ended, she embarked on an on-off relationship with Kid Rock. Neither relationship worked out in the end and she is currently married to Rick Salomon, who is best known for being Paris Hilton’s co-star in “One Night in Paris.” These two actually married in 2007, only to have their marriage annulled a few months later. They remarried in 2014.

1. Heather Locklear

Heather Locklear is one actress who really likes rock stars. Before Pamela Anderson snagged him, Heather Locklear was married to Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee. Once that relationship fizzled out, the “Melrose Place” star moved on to Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. Unfortunately, keeping a rock star tied down isn’t easy! After 12 years of marriage, Locklear filed for divorce after she reportedly intercepted an email to Sambora from a mutual female acquaintance that contained provocative pictures.
