Gwyneth cool with sex addiction

Gwyneth Paltrow has declared that she is "an extremely open minded person".

The A-list actress is currently starring as a Phoebe who is dating sex addict Adam, played by Mark Ruffalo, in new movie Thanks for Sharing.

And she's now admitted that her open mindedness would help her cope with this situation if it should happen in real life.

"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.

"But 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 20 years in," she told Refinery 29.

Gwyneth, who has been married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for nearly ten years, emphasised that no relationship is the same and so they can't be compared.

Her knowledge of the situation only stretches as far as playing the character in the movie though, as she's never had to deal with sex addiction in real life.

"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," she said.
