3 Stars, Including Gwyneth Paltrow, Who Think It’s Okay To Cheat

Posted by Katie F. on February 1st, 2012

Gwyneth Paltrow is the cover girl for the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar. In her interview with the magazine, she opens up about many different topics, including exercise, diets and detoxes, her daily routine, and her role as a mother. One of the most interesting parts of the interview, however, is when Gwyneth discusses infidelity in a marriage. She mentions an ex-boyfriend that used to cheat on her all the time. Deep down she knew what was going on, but she still chose to believe all his lies about being faithful. While she wants to make it clear that infidelity is not a part of her marriage to Chris Martin, she doesn’t “condemn others who stray.”  When she was younger, Paltrow looked down upon anyone who cheated and thought they were a terrible person. Now Paltrow reveals that she’s getting more open-minded as she gets older and that she’s no longer as judgmental as she used to be. She admits, “I have friends who I love and admire who have had an affair.” Relationships should be able to withstand “the inevitable challenges” and get better each time a couple makes it through a difficult phase.

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t necessarily encourage cheating, but she doesn’t think it’s the worst thing to do either. Many other stars have shared their opinions as well and agree with Paltrow – cheating is acceptable. Here are a few other celebrities that think it’s okay to cheat.

Will Smith

Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith have admitted that they have an open marriage. Will believes that you can’t help if you’re attracted to other people. The couple made a vow that the other person “will never hear that I did something after the fact.” They think sleeping with someone else is acceptable as long as you ask your husband or wife before you go through with it.

Tilda Swinton

Tilda Swinton has been with partner John Byrne for years now and the couple has two children together. However, both she and Byrne have lovers outside of their relationship. Swinton admitted that this arrangement “may seem odd but it is certainly the best thing for the children.” She doesn’t promote the lifestyle for everyone but thinks it’s healthy for her life.
