Ethan Hawke Thinks Sexual Fidelity In Relationships Is Overrated

Ethan Hawke talks about fidelity in relationships

You don’t hear this every day!

Ethan Hawke had the opportunity to do a feature for the November issue of Mr. Porter, and he got very honest, while looking hawt and broody.

The actor talked about his previous marriage to Uma Thurman ending amicably, but he also talked about being monogamous in relationships.

That’s where things got unusual.

Ethan explained:

“My relationship with my present wife is thrilling to me and I’m committed to it. But neither she nor I know what shape the future will come in. Sexual fidelity can’t be the whole thing you hang your relationship on. If you really love somebody you want them to grow, but you don’t get to define how that happens. They do… People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity. ‘He’s cheated so he’s bad, she’s cheated so she’s bad’, as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous. To act all indignant, that your world has been rocked because your lover wasn’t faithful to you, is a little bit like acting rocked that your hair went grey. I am [monogamous], but in Before Midnight there is the threat of sexual attraction to others and maintaining your sexual identity with your partner over a long period of time. Human beings are sexual beings.”

We’d love to hear if his wife Ryan Hawke feels the same way too!

Probably, or else this would be a tough point of view to get past in a marriage.

Thoughts???

    Masturbating furiously over a Zac Efron poster doesn't count as "monogamous", Mario.

    What he's saying is actually true. Good for him for standing by his convictions.

    Ethan Hawke needs to understand that when you are married, you are supposed to stay faithful. THis hollywood agenda of marrying and divorcing two weeks later is not the proper way to live.

    I'd agree to some extent, but I really wish people like that would stop claiming that this is fact and all humans are supposed to be like this otherwise they're stupid/selfish/childish/etc. Do what suits you and don't pull down others in an attempt to justify it because then you just make yourself the idiot.

    Human beings are sexual beings. Some are also beings with honor and integrity.
