Gwyneth Paltrow: I Would Forgive a Cheater

Matt Dekneef

Gwyneth Paltrow’s new romantic comedy Thanks for Sharing discusses sex addiction and it has the actress thinking a lot more critically about the subject.

When asked to imagine a scenario where she could potentially date a sex addict in real life, Gwyneth said she would be open to it on one condition.

“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,” Gwyneth said to Refinery29.

When the conversation took a turn towards cheating, Gwyneth was just as open-minded. To the 40-year-old, it’s not such a black-and-white issue.

“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,” she explained.

“No couple is the same, and as such, every couple takes on different challenges,” she added. “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.”
