Ethan Hawke thinks most people have a "childish view" of monogamy.
The 43-year-old actor, who has two daughters, Clementine, five, and Indiana, three, with his wife Ryan Shawhughes, and two children, Maya, 15, and Levon, 11, with his ex-wife Uma Thurman, thinks there should be more to marriage than sexual fidelity but insists he is committed to his marriage.
"My relationship with my present wife is thrilling to me and I'm committed to it. But neither she nor I know what shape the future will come in. Sexual fidelity can't be the whole thing you hang your relationship on. If you really love somebody you want them to grow, but you don't get to define how that happens. They do," the Getaway star told the November issue of Mr. Porter magazine.
"People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity. 'He's cheated so he's bad, she's cheated so she's bad,' as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous. To act all indignant, that your world has been rocked because your lover wasn't faithful to you, is a little bit like acting rocked that your hair went grey. Human beings are sexual beings," he added.
“God knows I fought hard for the other side,” The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck admitted on-air. “Today is a victory for this country,” she even managed a smile. “No one lost today.” Her comments, a shade different than her rabid Republican rantings of episodes past, are similar to the words of other celebs who today are celebrating a page in history. Who, today, are celebrating the stunning victory of a man named Barack Obama. “I haven’t felt this good,” she poured out seemingly heartfelt joy for the new President-elect, the first Democrat to get into the White House since Bill Clinton - and she isn’t alone.

After the dissolution of his seven-year marriage, Ethan Hawke didn’t look far for his next hook-up. Now the actor, who has two children with ex-wife Uma Thurman, will be a dad once again. The new mom? His kids’ former nanny.
Hawke, 37, met Ryan Shawhughes, 28, when she was working for the still-married couple. (Although it was rumored an affair may have factored in his divorce, Shawhughes wasn’t the one in question.) The two later began dating after Ethan and Uma parted ways.
Mara Buxbaum, Hawke’s rep, confirmed the pregnancy news and went on to say the two were ‘thrilled’. No details on a due date or possible nuptials were announced.
