Gwyneth Paltrow Speaks on Cheaters & Sex Addiction

Posted by PZ on September 26th, 2013


Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up on her thoughts regarding those who cheat and also on the subject of sex addicts. When asked if she would stay in a relationship with someone she found out to be a sex addict, Gwyneth responded that if she knew her partner was a sex addict, she would try to approach it in an open-minded way and would still explore the relationship:

“I’m an extremely open-minded person, so I think if it was something I knew I was getting myself into, I wouldn’t let it deter me from exploring the relationship.”

Speaking on if she thought other people could handle finding out their partner was a sex addict who had cheated on them, Gwyneth responds that many wives in that situation would start to question everything about their lives:

“I think it would be hard for me to be one of those wives who finds out there’s been something going on behind my back twenty years in. I’d imagine you’d begin to question your life. It would definitely make things harder, but I believe that if there’s authenticity and honesty right off the bat, things will be okay.”

Gwyneth says she hasn’t personally experienced cheating but she hopes she would be able to work things out in that situation:

“I think that if the idea of being committed to someone is important to you, you begin to value certain parts of your social life over another. No couple is the same, and as such, every couple takes on different challenges. I would like to think that I would be forgiving and/or forgiven, but I can’t give an honest answer as I haven’t really experienced that.”
