Against All Odds, Some Male Celebs Manage To Be Faithful

"It's a serious quandary for every married man — who also happens to be ridiculously good-looking," writes Simon Usbourne in The Independent. The quandary in question: staying faithful while "women literally throw themselves at you."

Failures in this regard include Tom Jones, whose wife reportedly "beat him 'black and blue' after learning about one of [his] affairs" (sounds like she'd benefit from Sadie's recent post on women hitting men). But according to Usbourne, trust helps Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp deal with the the army of sex-starved harpies who constantly "mob" him. "I understand," Paradis sweetly says, "I want to mob him all the time. He's a very charming person." Usbourne also quotes Paul Newman, who nixed extramarital dalliances with the famous line, "why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?" Comparing Joanne Woodward to meat? Not that awesome. But championing fidelity, even in the face of a male celebrity's supposedly irresistible onslaught of ladyflesh — that we can get behind. [Independent]
