Gwyneth Paltrow: lady in the streets, freak in the sheets!

The GOOP goddess is playing a sex addict in the upcoming film Thanks for Sharing. The 38-year-old actress' rep confirms to Entertainment Weekly that Paltrow will star in Stuart Blumberg's film about a group of people who bond over their shared addiction.

Also in the flick? Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins and Joely Richardson.

In real life, Paltrow -- who's been married to Coldplay's Chris Martin since 2005 -- tries not to judge others based on who they've slept with. "Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extramarital affairs," she told the Daily Mail.

But don't expect Paltrow to violate her own vows anytime soon. "I'm lucky -– I have a wonderful, blessed life. I have two fantastically delightful children and a very nice husband," she added. (Paltrow and Martin are the parents of Apple, 7, and Moses, 5.) She added, laughing: "Knock on wood!"
