Gwyneth Paltrow Says She Would Consider Forgiving A Cheat (VIDEO)

Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she would consider forgiving her husband Chris Martin if he cheated.

In an interview with Refinery 29, the 40-year-old actress also said 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.

Asked whether she would stay with someone who had cheated, Paltrow replied: “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.”

Paltrow deals with the issue in tandem with the topic of sex addiction in her new film 'Thanks For Sharing', which co-stars Mark Ruffalo as a man who suffers from the affliction.
