GOOP better be careful before she throws one of her friends under the bus!

"I am a great romantic, but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist," she told the Daily Mail (via Us Weekly). "Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs." Gwyneth Paltrow Slams Celebrity Couples
Oh boy, who could Gwyneth be talking about? She has tons of friends in Hollywood, so trying to narrow them down would take too much time and energy (though, feel free to shout out your guesses below). It's too bad she won't give up any clues either.
"We're flawed — we're human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge," Paltrow continues. "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."
We hear you on that one, sister. If celebrities, like real people, didn't cheat from time-to-time, then we would run out of material here on CelebLove. But the reality is, they do... all the time. Yet, despite some rocky tabloid stories that have been circulating about her own marriage to Coldplay singer, Chris Martin, GOOP assures their relationship won't become a scandal anytime soon.

"I'm lucky — I have a wonderful, blessed life," she says. "I have two fantastically delightful children and a very nice husband. Knock on wood!"
We'll knock on wood for her marriage too... and for her cheating friends not to get mad at her!
