“My relationship with my present wife [his children's former nanny, Ryan Shawhughes] 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. Human beings are sexual beings.”

Ethan Hawke is as well known for all those “Before Sunrise” movies as he is for being the guy who let Uma Thurman get away. But as he broadly hints at the magazine Mr. Porter, he didn’t want to be monogamous. That doesn’t make any cheating that may have occurred okay, of course, but I commend him, actually, for being this honest about monogamy and fidelity given how harshly our culture judges nontraditional relationships. (Actress Maria Bello has some similar thoughts, which she wrote about this weekend in the New York Times Modern Love column.) It sounds like 42-year-old Hawke has a more clear-eyed view of what kind of relationship he wants with his new wife. He’s kidding himself, though, if he thinks that being “indignant” about cheating is abnormal.  Non-monogamy isn’t about cheating at all. [Mr. Porter via US Weekly] [Image via Getty]

Ethan Hawke Wants Young People To Have More Sex

“I was very, very lucky. I lost my virginity to someone I cared for very much and who cared very much for me. The thing that’s so important for young people to know is that, if you use protection, sex is one of the few vices you can have as a young person.”

– Ethan Hawke talks talks sex in the September issue of Elle. His statement struck me as odd and a little bit tone deaf. I don’t think young people need to be encouraged to see sex as a “vice,” but they do need to be more well-informed about the sex they’re having. [Elle]

Support The Latest Celebrity Cause: Save The Gypsies

Causes like rebuilding New Orleans, protesting animal cruelty with PETA, and helping poor children are totally played out. No, today’s press-seeking celebrity will have to come up with something more exotic. How about saving the Gypsies?! In Eastern Europe, especially in Romania where their population is close to half a million (that’s a lot of caravans!), Gypsies are facing major discrimination in housing, health care and education due to their nomadic ways. Who better to help them get the equal rights they deserve than the former material girl, Madonna. Always on the cutting edge, she spoke out about Gypsy discrimination at a recent concert in Bucharest to the dismay of many of her non-Gypsy fans, who booed her offstage. But Madge does not stand alone in the fight. Another celeb is applauding Madonna’s Gypsy support. Ethan Hawke and his mom Leslie, who has been running a charity organization to support the Gypsies since 2000, think Madonna is a gem for raising awareness about the problem. She even donated a pair of autographed Christian Dior shoes to be auctioned off at a recent Gypsy charity ball. Next stop for Madge … Gypsy baby adoption? [PopEater] Keep reading »

Uma Thurman Graces The Cover Of W Magazine With Her Magnificence

Statuesque actress Uma Thurman, 39, does the cover of W magazine and sits for a feature profile inside. We meet her two children with ex-husband Ethan Hawke (Levon, 7, and Maya, 11), tour her Greenwich Village townhouse, and hear about her fiancé, financier Arpad “Arki” Busson. Because no actress would talk to the media without something to promote, she’s hawking her upcoming movie, “Motherhood,” in which she plays a … mommy blogger? “Kill Bill” it is not. She refuses to trash-talk Hawke, doesn’t have a wedding date set yet, and rocks an engagement ring that could put your eye out. After the jump, a few images from the Steven Klein-shot layout.

Seven Scandalous Spouse Stealers

Sneaking around on your spouse is all the rage in Hollywood. Just this weekend, Angelina Jolie, openly admitted she and Brad Pitt fell in love while he was still very married to Jennifer Aniston. Ouch! But she wasn’t the only one messing around in tinsel town. Téa Leoni has allegedly been messing around on David Duchovny with Angelina’s ex, Billy Bob Thornton? Oh, the incestuous web celebrities weave! Alas, in Hollywood, cheating the camera isn’t just an acting technique, but off-screen it can get a whole lot trickier. More, after the jump…
