Gwyneth Paltrow On Why Cheating Can Be Forgivable & Sex Addiction Is Not A Dealbreaker

Posted: Updated:

Gwyneth Paltrow is committed to living the Goopiest life possible and that means being "extremely open-minded." All those years of living off of a macrobiotic diet have prepared the Goopster for anything -- even the possibility of infidelity.

Now, Paltrow's husband of 10 years, Chris Martin, hasn't cheated on her, but she does deal with the issue in tandem with the topic of sex addiction in her new movie "Thanks For Sharing," which co-stars Mark Ruffalo as a man who suffers from the affliction.

In an interview with Refinery 29, the 40-year-old actress got pretty candid about both topics, telling the website that she wouldn't run if she ended up falling for a sex addict:

“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," Paltrow said, though she wasn't so confident when asked if she would stay with someone who cheated.

“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," she explained. "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.”

This almost feels like Paltrow's way of saying, "No man would cheat on Gwyneth Paltrow," which would not be the most eyebrow raising thing she's ever said. However, perhaps what Paltrow meant was that she never stayed in a relationship after she's been cheated on. But then again, she told Harper's Bazaar in 2012 that she had one boyfriend that cheated on her "all the time. " And she admitted, "I was quite naive. I knew on a cellular level, [he was cheating on me] but I bought his story."
