Monogamy isn’t for everyone, and that applies to many of our favorite celebrities. Maybe it’s the tedious filming days or maybe it’s just hard to keep your eyes on one person when you’re having on-screen relations with a co-star. Whatever the case may be, these celebrity couples have bent the rules of dating with less traditional relationship roles and goals. For some, an open relationship can keep them together as they are allowed to explore other options, but for others it can break a relationship. Check out these celebs who have allegedly spent some time playing in open relationships. The 8th couple on our list might shock you.
Kate Hudson rose to fame after her amazing role in 2000’s Almost Famous. She then appeared in a string of hits including How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Bride Wars.

It was actually her dad, Bill, who told the media that she was interested in an open relationship and had her eyes set on other guys in Hollywood. The couple officially called it quits in 2007.
You might think that former power couple Brangelina had a solid and monogamous marriage, but Jolie has some different views. She spoke out about fidelity in 2009 saying “I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship … It’s worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterward. Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other.” Sadly, this arrangement doesn’t seem to have worked out for them, as the couple filed for divorce in 2016.
This one is a little twisted. Megan Fox definitely wears the pants in this marriage. Sources reveal that while Green is not allowed to touch other women, Fox can touch other men.

Sources close to the married couple claim that Smith gives permission to his wife to be with another man if she feels the need to, but that she has chosen not to act on it.
