Ethan Hawke: "Relationships Can't Hang On Sexual Fidelity"

Ethan Hawke seriously doubts conventional relationship values in the November issue of Mr. Porter's, revealing to the magazine: "Sexual fidelity can't be the whole thing you hang your relationship on."

Hawke, 43, was rumored to have cheated on Uma Thurman, 43, with the pair's nanny Ryan Shawhughes, to whom he is currently married.

Hawke said of his marriage to Shawhughes: "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," Hawke was quoted as saying.

"If you really love somebody you want them to grow, but you don't get to define how that happens. They do," Hawke went on.

"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," Hawke explained.

"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," Hawke noted, adding: "Human beings are sexual beings."
