While promoting her latest film, Contagion, at the Venice Film Festival, Gwyneth Paltrow ended up talking about adultery.
Though she and Coldplay singer, Chris Martin, have been married for 8 years and are touted as having one of the "strongest relationships in show business", Paltrow has a surprisingly cavalier attitude when it comes to extra-marital affairs.
"I know people that I respect and admire and look up to, who have had extra-marital affairs," claimed the 38-year-old American actress. "The more I live my life, the more I learn not to judge people for what they do. I think we're all trying our best, but life is complicated."
At the film's press conference she joked: "If death by virus was a punishment for extra-marital affairs, there would only be three dudes left in this world right now."
Of course she stressed that family is of paramount importance to her and that she and Martin are happily married as ever with their two children Apple, 7, and Moses, 5.
As long as she doesn't play his band's music at home, that is!
In spite of starring in a film about a pandemic, Paltrow sleeps easy these days.
"I don't get paranoid about it," says Paltrow. "We live in an over-populated planet and the farming practices, the way we're cutting down forests, we're going to be seeing more of this kind of thing but you can worry or just not worry."
