Bet she won't be putting this one on GOOP. Gwyneth Paltrow, a married mother of two, says she respects people who have cheated on their spouses.

While promoting her new movie Contagion, Paltrow said, "I am a great romantic -- but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist."

"Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs."

"It's like we're flawed -- we're human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge," she said. "That's their problem but I think that 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."

Despite her laid-back attitudes on breaking marital vows, Gwyneth insists all is well in her own marriage.

"I'm lucky – I have a wonderful, blessed life. I have two fantastically delightful children and a very nice husband, so… Knock on wood."

Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin have been married for seven years.

Let me first say that she is not saying she respects people for cheating on their spouses, but rather she knows people who have cheated on their spouses and respects them despite this. Secondly, she is entitled to her opinions, although I don't understand her need to share them with everyone. I personally don't agree with her on this - I have never understood cheating. I have never understood why some people will claim to love their marriage mate and want to stay with them, but secretly have an affair on the side. It's like you want to keep the cake but eat it too. I have never been able to see extra-marital affairs as anything but selfish...maybe I am just not enlightened as some, I don't know.

Someone who lives in fantasy land. I respect who cheat which can destroy families. You continually prove that you are an elitist idiot fool.
