Pals Gwyneth Paltrow and Amanda Decadenet giggled about their past sex adventures during a candid TV chat which aired in America on Thursday (21Jun12) after the actress accused the host of having sex with everyone.
Paltrow was talking about finding her true sexuality in a committed relationship when former wildchild DeCadenet agreed that flings and one-night stands are rarely satisfying.
The actress said, "You don't find it (sexuality) (in a one-night stand); it has to be a longer-term situation, where you're completely safe and that's when it starts to reveal itself."
The Conversation host DeCadenet, who was once married to Duran Duran star John Taylor and is currently wed to The Strokes' Nick Valensi, responded, "I totally agree. I would not have known that if I had not..." prompting her guest to add, "...shag everyone".
Paltrow tipped her head back and laughed as her pal said, "And you too, by the way."
The actress then quipped, "Those were the days."
And the interview got deeper as Paltrow opened up about discussing sex with her daughter Apple.
She added, "No one ever spoke to me about anything."
The School of Rock star admits her gynaecologist is often giving her a hard time about freezing her eggs, now she's in her 40s, but she insists she has no plans to become a mum, unless she adopts.
Appearing on U.S. TV show The Conversation with Amanda DeCadenet on Thursday (31May12), she said, "I don't want kids. I'd love to adopt someday and I have a lot of adoption in my family... I know that I have this depression and that it's in my family. Every family has their stuff but, for me, I just don't feel strong enough to see that in a child."
And she jokes, "I haven't frozen my eggs and what are the chances my womb isn't polluted at this point? I do believe in adoption... I watched my oldest niece be born... (and) I passed out... All I could think was, 'Oh my God, we are animals'."
Silverman admits she can't understand why more people don't adopt when there are so many kids in need of loving homes around the world.
She adds, "We live in Los Angeles, where everybody is like, 'Don't get your dog from a breeder, get your dog from a shelter...' and I agree, but don't get your people from a breeder. There are human puppies in shelters and it's odd that that never seems to be a connection that people make.
"If you're not OK with yourself... it's easier to love a dog than a person in need because you don't see all the things you hate about yourself reflected back in the eyes of a dog. If Africa was full of springer spaniels dying of Aids and starvation we'd probably take care of it in a day."
The Tron: Legacy star ended her eight-year marriage to Italian prince Tao Ruspoli last year (11) and now reveals it was a new home that made her realise the romance was over.
In a frank TV chat with The Conversation host Amanda DeCadenet, which aired in America on Thursday (31May12), the pretty star said, "We'd just finished a huge renovation on the house... We built a new house and it was perfect... The day it was finished is when I knew it wasn't the house. I think that I finally started being really honest with myself and that was the scariest thing to do.
"(I said), 'I am the luckiest person on earth; there is this extraordinary person who is my partner in life, everything seems perfect, why aren't I happy?'
"I kept trying to do different things, change different things to make everyone happy and I moved houses... I changed all the outside stuff... I thought, 'It's the house, it's wrong for us and it's making us something we're not and we've lost something,' and I thought, 'It's the environment... We need nature'. I kept thinking, 'We need grass'.
"We get the house, get the grass - (it's) still not working, so I think, 'We've got to renovate the whole thing,' and I would literally walk in to the room of a house that I bought because I loved... and I'd say, 'I'm being decapitated, the house is decapitating me,' and he (Ruspoli) would say, 'OK, we'll bust up the ceilings...' He was really trying to accommodate all these requests."
Wilde admits she still has regrets about ending her marriage: "You don't want to break up with someone, you don't want to end a marriage, especially if you really like the person. You just know that something's off and so you try to change everything else.
"The day I knew I had to ask for a divorce was the worst day of my life... I had no idea how to be alone."
The comedy star went from being a cheerleader to a all-black wearing, blue-haired goth over the course of a year and she accepts she must have worried her family and friends.
She tells TV chat show host Amanda DeCadenet, "I was, like, a horrible gothic person. It was really bad because I looked really menacing and I was still really chatty.
"It was such a flip... I had shaved off, like, half of my head and this part was blue."
But McCarthy insists she was simply trying to find herself: "You just keep trying things and nothing feels probably real, because it's not.
"You're putting on crazy outfits and being, like, 'This is what I'm about...'"
The Bridesmaids star was often told she would never make it in Hollywood unless she lost weight, and she admits some of the cutting remarks from agents and potential managers made her think seriously about slimming.
However, she then started winning TV and movie roles and any interest she had in becoming a weight loss champion disappeared when she fell pregnant.
She tells TV chat show host Amanda DeCadenet, "I got jobs (during) both pregnancies. I waddled in (to auditions) like a Weeble and was just so pregnant and I was like, 'Great, it if happens, whatever!'
"I think there's so many weird issues that you have as a woman and we're all just kind of nuts about how we're supposed to look, and something happened after kids... There's only so much stuff you can worry about. You wish certain things were different but... people are healthy, we have a good family, I'm nuts about my husband.
"At some point I'm gonna be better at my elliptical (bike machine) but it gets further down (my priority list)."
McCarthy has two daughters, Vivian and Georgette, with her actor husband Ben Falcone.
The Desperate Housewives star split from the basketball player in 2010 and quickly divorced the Frenchman amid reports of his infidelity.
And now, in a very candid TV interview with Amanda DeCadenet, Longoria admits her ex-husband's cheating made her think about what she had done to doom the marriage.
She says, "Society usually thinks something is wrong with the woman: 'Oh, he cheated on her so she must not have been sexually satisfying him, she must have been a ball and chain...' Why did he have to have a reason to cheat? It was definitely not about me."
Longoria left Parker after finding hundreds of text messages from the sportsman to another woman on his cellphone, and she found herself wondering, "Am I not sexy enough? Am I not pretty enough? Am I not smart enough?"
She adds, "In so many of those questions, I immediately stopped and go, 'No, don't start doing that.' Because you can get stuck in that cycle and you can carry on to other things."
The Jerry Maguire star gave birth to son Benjamin in 2010, and credits the tot with helping her cope with the tragic loss of her 16-year-old son Jett, who died after suffering a seizure on a family vacation in 2009.
Now Preston, who turns 50 in October (12), has opened up about her family life in a candid TV chat with Amanda de Cadenet, admitting she would love to get pregnant again - even though motherhood over age 40 is associated with increased health risks.
She says, "I always wanted to have more kids. I feel like I would even have another child, but it might be pushing it.
"I'm not afraid to love and to love deeply. My kids help me with that. They open up your heart so much. There's nothing like the love of a child... it's the greatest thing ever."
Preston, who is also mum to 12-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, tells DeCadenet that although she'll never fully recover from the "unfathomable" pain she suffered after losing her teenage son, she is enjoying life again.
She explains, "I've had enormous loss. Nobody should have to lose a child. It's unfathomable. But I'm here to say that you can get through it. You can live again. You can want to live again...
"Everybody grieves in their own way. I felt at times like I was drowning. It felt like a sea of wet blankets. And then I just peeled them off, layer by layer, so that I can now say, 'I want to live.' I love life. My life is beautiful and amazing."
