Mo'nique Open Marriage Revelation - Oscars Buzz, Predictions
Mar 6, 2010
Oscar-nominated actress Mo’Nique has an open marriage and revealed her unique deal with her husband in an interview. The Precious star (she was spectacular in the film in a brutal role and is favored by many for supporting actress and an Academy Award) says her husband Sidney Hicks is allowed to stray, but she doesn't bother with other men.
"Let me say this: I have not had sex outside my marriage with Sidney," the actress spilled to TV host Barbara Walters. “Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes. That’s not a dealbreaker. “That’s not something that would make us say, ‘Pack your things and let’s end the marriage’. “What if it’s 20 times? So what? “We’ve been best friends for over 25 years, and we truly know who we are. “I’m very comfortable and secure with my husband.”
More Oscars buzz...Sacha Baron Cohen will join the line-up of A-list presenters that includes Zac Efron, Ben Stiller and Miley Cyrus.
The show will be hosted by comedians Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. Cohen, 38, was reported to have been earlier put forward for a host role at the awards ceremony before the academy vetoed him as a "wild card". The ceremony has taken in a few changes this year.
Nominees were asked to prepare two speeches ahead of the ceremony this year - one for the stage that trumpets the Oscars, the other for tears and thank-yous backstage.
Sandra Bullock is a hot favorite to take out the best actress award for The Blind Side, while Avatar and The Hurt Locker have each garnered nine nominations. The awards will be broadcast from the heart of Hollywood at the Kodak Theatre on March 7.
