Kate Bosworth’s husband ”directed” their wedding. The Still Alice actress married filmmaker Michael Polish on The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana in August 2013 and she admits, unusually for a guy, her spouse had a major input into their nuptials.
She said: ”Our ceremony was quite simple, at the top of a bluff and I arrived in an old-fashioned wagon-style carriage. My husband was pretty much directing the whole thing. That’s the great blessing of marrying a director – he takes care of the visuals, and the score.”
The 32-year-old screen beauty thinks hers and 44-year-old Michael’s respective careers play a huge part in their relationship and life together. Speaking in the March issue of Marie Claire magazine, she said: ”Visually I think he’s one of the most impactful filmmakers we have – it’s like watching magic happen. And I do think a big part of our marriage is that artist-muse relationship. We pass the baton back and forth – sometimes he’s the artist and I’m the muse, sometimes I’m the artist and he’s the muse.”
And Kate – who will next shoot 90 Minutes in Heaven with her spouse – insists marrying a director has other career advantages. She explained: ”I’m sure every actress will tell you but the sad reality of the film industry is that they almost always cast the male lead first, and then deal with the female lead later. Being married to the director is the one case in which the woman gets cast before the man.”
