Most of us would balk at the idea of having an open relationship with our significant other. But some couples claim it works for them, even a few celebrity couples.
Let’s check out celebrities with open marriages or relationships!
Mo’Nique & Sidney Hicks
“Precious” star Mo’Nique has talked openly about her open marriage to her longtime friend, Sidney Hicks. She said they do have an open marriage, but that she hadn’t had sex anyone outside of their marriage.
She told Barbara Walters during an interview, “Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes. That’s not a dealbreaker. That’s not something that would make us say, ‘Pack your things and let’s end the marriage.’ What if it’s 20 times? So what? We’ve been best friends for over 25 years, and we truly know who we are. Often times, people get into marriages and they don’t know who they’re laying next to. I’m very comfortable and secure with my husband.”
Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith reportedly have an open marriage, which they confirm and then back off from discussing it. But it is their sex life so we understand!
Will Smith said, “Our perspective is, you don’t avoid what’s natural and you’re going to be attracted to people. If it came down to it, then one would say to the other, ‘Look, I need to have sex with somebody. Now I’m not going to do it if you don’t approve of it.’”
Jada simply said, “Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that’s not for me to do for him. Or vice versa.”
We think they DO have an open relationship but come just shy of coming out and confirming it clearly. Understandable!
Brian Austin Green & Megan Fox
Megan Fox and her husband Brian Austin Green have a semi-open relationship, which apparently works in Megan’s favor. An insider said, “They’ve agreed to an open relationship where Megan can see other men but Brian can’t date anyone else”.
Tilda Swinton & John Byrne
Actress Tilda Swinton and her partner John Byrne both have a lover outside of their marriage and are raising twins together.
Tilda’s lover is artist Sandro Kopp, who publicly is spotted out with the actress often. Her husband John has a lady on the side named Jeanine.
Swinton said of their relationship, “It may seem odd but it is certainly the best thing for the children. It’s not something I try to promote as a radical lifestyle choice. But it’s a situation I find very healthy. I can maintain my life with my children and their father and spend time with the man I’ve become very fond of. I am very fortunate there has been a lot of understanding by the men.”
Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel
J.T. and Jessica Biel are married now, but before they tied the knot they tried out an open relationship to take care of Justin’s sexual needs.
An insider said, “Justin was very clear with Jessica that he didn’t want to be in a serious relationship with her anymore where he wasn’t able to date other people. Jessica took the news very hard, but once she calmed down and they started talking again, he convinced her to stay friends who hook up, without all the pressure of a relationship.”
We’re surprised Jessica gave him another chance. Who want to go from a serious relationship to taking whatever crumbs they throw at you. No thanks!
Paula Patton & Robin Thicke
Robin Thicke has had people talking for some time now after getting caught in compromising positions with other ladies that weren’t his wife!
Thicke has never officially confirmed his open relationship with his wife, but almost. He told Howard Stern in July, “We’ve done just about everything. Out of respect for her, we just won’t answer that one.”
We think his actions pretty much speak for themselves. He was caught getting very handsy with an attractive young woman right in front of his wife Paula, who didn’t seem to care.
Robin said his marriage is “the greatest love of the century, and the most functional, dysfunctional marriage in Hollywood.”
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher
We all know the marriage between Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher didn’t work out. But there were reports they had an open marriage.
The young woman Ashton hooked up with, Britney Jones, said that Ashton said he and Demi had an open relationship. In fact, he told her they often had threesomes. But Kutcher broke the open marriage rule by going off on his own to sleep with women without Demi.
We can’t imagine having an open relationship. Anyone with any jealousy issues probably wouldn’t be happy with that arrangement. Hell, even the “Sister Wives” get jealous and claim they are fine with sharing Cody.
