Coldplay's Chris Martin has revealed he has managed to break into one of Hollywood's most exclusive clubs - with the help of his Oscar winning wife, report the Metro today.
The singer said he cast an Oscar vote for Mickey Rourke as best actor for The Wrestler after discovering his wife's secret Academy Awards voting form. Martin confessed: 'I read the instructions, which is like you've got to put your top five in order and if the number one that you've chosen isn't really doing very well, then they move on to your number two and include that with one that is doing well, if you see what I mean.'
The singer, 31, told Manchester's Key 103 Radio he backed Rourke for glory, telling: 'I did get a say on that form. I got to put a vote in. I voted for Mickey Rouke. Isn't he great in that film (The Wrestler)?'
The musician defended turning the Oscar vote into a joke insisting he wouldn't mind if actress Paltrow voted for The Brits music awards. Martin even went as far to say he would mind losing out man band Take That should that happen. 'They should win. I just think that band are awesome.'
If Rourke does win the gong then Oscar bosses will have to be on alert. He turned the air blue with his Leading Actor acceptance speech at the glitzy Bafta ceremony on Sunday. He told the audience he had been "f****** up my career for 15 years".
He also paid tribute to co-star Marisa Tomei, saying she was brave to take her clothes off, adding: "I enjoyed looking at her." After the expletive-laden thank you, Jonothan Ross joked to the audience: "After that speech, he's now suspended for three months."
