As the world continues to evolve and the concept of relationships continues to revolutionize across the world, we have seen more and more celebrities share their thoughts about monogamy. And from what we can tell so far, not all of them, in fact, a large majority don’t subscribe to the conventional one-man-one-woman dynamic. While open and poly relationships are still not quite as popular or accepted in some parts of the world, several Hollywood stars have embraced this new normal concept and we sure love to see it.
From young singers to iconic actors to reality television stars, here are a few Hollywood stars who have been or are still currently in open and poly relationships. You might just find your favorite on this list so take a look!
10 Willow Smith
Willow Smith, daughter of Hollywood legends Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, is no stranger to the public eye. The American singer/songwriter has never been one to shy away from talking about her sexuality. She has proudly shared her views on romantic relationships and the ties that bind, or should not bind them. And while Willow’s views have earned her a few backlashes, this 20-year-old simply does not seem to care. During an episode of Red Table Talk, Willow revealed she sees monogamy as an antique practice that often leads to cheating and the misuse of trust amongst partners. The singer admitted that she prefers the honesty of a polyamorous relationship and the idea of multiple partners.
9 Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have one of the longest-lasting and perhaps one of the most unusual marriages in Hollywood. In a 2013 interview with HuffPost, Jada hinted at having an open relationship with her husband. But it was not until 2020 that the actress admitted to having once had a relationship with singer August Alsina…but interesting, with Will’s consent. In an interview on Jada’s Red Table Talk, the couple admitted that they were going through a difficult time and were on a break during the actress’s relationship with August.
8 Mo’Nique And Sidney Hicks
Mo’Nique and her manager turned husband Sidney Hicks have been married for over a decade and have twin boys together. That hasn’t stopped the couple from having an open marriage though. In 2016, both Mo’Nique and husband Sidney were asked on The Preachers to shed more light on how their open marriage, which some may deem unusual, works. It was there that Mo’Nique made it clear that contrary to popular opinion, she proposed the idea to her husband. Though an unconventional approach, Mo’Nique and Hicks have a blissful marriage with the comedian once admitting that opening their relationship took their love to a different level.
7 Dolly Parton And Carl Dean
Iconic singer Dolly Parton and Carl Dean have been married for over five decades and perhaps the reason for the long-lasting union is how open they are…or should we say, their marriage. But despite keeping things fun between them, both Dean and Parton know to never have too much fun. The singer revealed that despite keeping their marriage open, it never gets sexual. The singer also reportedly once said:
“If we cheat, we don’t know it, so if we do cheat, it’s very good for both of us. I don’t want to know it if he’s cheating on me. If I’m cheating on him, he wouldn’t want to know it. … And if we do, if that’s what’s making it work, then that’s fine too.”
6 Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
Megan Fox and her ex-husband Brian Austin Green are also one of the many celebrities who support non-stereotypical relationships. The couple allegedly had a one-sided open marriage where Megan could see other men but Brian could not. Although Megan did claim that she wasn’t as promiscuous as the media has painted, we still believe this pair’s marriage is one for the books.
5 Taylor Nolan
In August 2020, the Bachelor Nation star Taylor Nolan revealed she had been experimenting the polyamorous dynamic. She later admitted to being in a consensual non-monogamous relationship with her new boyfriend Zach. The reality star also explained that while she might get married someday, restricting herself to one partner is not in the books.
4 Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
Aston Kutcher and actress Demi Moore got married in 2005 and to date, theirs is still one of the most popular marriages Hollywood has ever seen. Though they tried to keep it a secret, the pair seemingly had an open marriage with Ashton reportedly once admitting to having a threesome with the actress. Sadly, not even an open marriage could keep this two together as they eventually divorced in 2013.
2 Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter
Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have long split up and are no longer a couple but while they were together, they were not scared to explore. Brody revealed he suggested having a threesome to Kaitlynn and she had no problem. Brody explained that even though a lot of people are nervous to bring up the open relationship subject, he was excited when he brought it up and Kaitlynn agreed to it. And even though they have since gone their separate ways, Kaitlynn has admitted that there wasn’t any part of her and Brody’s relationship she was ashamed of or would have done differently.
Not only is Akon a music icon in his own right, but he apparently also has a very fascinating take on romantic relationships. The singer once revealed that he does not think men are naturally programmed to be with just one woman and admitted that he is not monogamous with his wife. Akon however interestingly does not think women should be non-monogamous because according to him, it does not come naturally to them. The singer is believed to practice polygamy and reportedly has four wives. Four women to one man? Akon seems to have it on lock!
