Opening this weekend is the sex addict comedy/drama Thanks for Sharing, which marks the directorial debut of The Kids Are All Right scribe Stuart Blumberg. The film tells the story of three sex addicts struggling to function in normal society. The central focus is on Mark Ruffalo, who plays an addict who’s trying to strike up a relationship with a woman who has sworn off dating other addicts (Gwyneth Paltrow). The other main addicts include Book of Mormon star Josh Gad, Alecia Moore (aka Pink), Tim Robbins, Joely Richardson and Patrick Fugit. For more on the film, watch the trailer.
The other day I got to speak with Gwyneth Paltrow. She talked about why she wanted to be a part of the film, how the film shows sex addiction is a real issue, what she collects, and what it means to be approaching the 20th anniversary of David Fincher‘s Seven. Hit the jump for what she had to say.
- What was it about this script and character that made her want to do it?
- How the film shows that sex addiction is a real issue.
- What does she collect?
- How it’s almost the 20th anniversary of Seven and what does that mean to her?
