Chris Martin married Gwyneth Paltrow (the actress in Sliding Doors, Shakespeare In Love, etc.) on December 5, 2003. They have a daughter named Apple and a son named Moses. (thanks, Eliza - Sydney, Australia)
Martin was in the 2004 movie Shaun Of The Dead. He played a zombie. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
Gwyneth Paltrow first agreed to go on a date with Chris Martin because they were often romantically linked in the press. "It's funny because people had started writing that we were going out and we had never even met. And then he was in Los Angeles doing a concert and an actress that he had a crush on was supposed to come to the concert. When she didn't show up, he was so annoyed that he said, 'Oh, this is for my girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow,'' she recalled to The Sun. "Then people were saying, 'What's going on?' I was like, 'I've never met this guy, I've no idea!' And because of that, because people were writing about it, we ended up meeting at a concert and there you go. So, thank you!"
William Willett (1856-1915), who came up with the idea of changing the clocks for British summer time, is Chris Martin's great-great grandfather.
