Gwyneth Paltrow isn't exactly known for holding back how she really feels, but apparently, in her personal life, she's even more no-holds-barred. Chelsea Handler dished on Chelsea Lately that Gwyneth gave relationship advice to a mutual friend at a party that was, hmm, shall we say, not exactly G-rated!
Chelsea explained, "We were at this dinner party one night and a girl was asking advice. And [Gwyneth's] an amazing advice-giver. And one of her friends is like, 'I got in a big fight with my husband and I went home and I just wanted to scream and yell.'" Gwyneth's tip for the friend?
As Chelsea put it:
... and you're like, "Whatever you're feeling, do the opposite. Go at him with love and you give him a b**wjob."
Ha, oookay then! Gwyneth cringed and balked at the anecdote, wringing her hands about her mom finding out she said that, so we know it was completely true! But you know, I can't exactly say I disagree with her.
Sure, having sex is likely the LAST thing you want to do when you're angry with your spouse. But it may truly be one of the best things. After all, there's nothing like doing it to feel more intimate. And anything that helps you feel closer to your partner can help promote compassion, sympathy, open lines of communication. It's actually sort of brilliant when you think about it!
Still, Gwyneth didn't have to put it that way. The way she makes it sound is like she is endorsing using sex as a weapon in your relationship -- or at least as a way to manipulate a situation, and, uh, that's never healthy!
How do you feel about Gwyneth's advice?
