The Goddess of GOOP isn't judge-y at all — even when it comes to infidelity.

Gwyneth Paltrow has been married to Coldplay's Chris Martin for seven years, and they share kids Apple, 7, and Moses, 5. Promoting her flick Contagion at the Venice Film Festival, the star shared her complicated thoughts on adultery.

"I am a great romantic," the Oscar-winning actress, 38, told the Daily Mail. "But I also think you can be a romantic and a realist."

"Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs," explained Paltrow, who famously has a long, long list of BFFs in Hollywood, including Madonna, Beyonce and many others.

"We're flawed -– we're human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge. 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."

Her decidedly private marriage to 34-year-old Martin, however, is rock-solid, she insisted. "I'm lucky -– I have a wonderful, blessed life. I have two fantastically delightful children and a very nice husband," she said, laughing. "Knock on wood!"
