1. Tilda Swinton and John Byrne

These European parents are living life on their own terms.

Tilda declared casually in an interview with Harper’s Bazzar, “We are all a family, what you must also know is that we are all very happy.”

Their family consists of her and her paramour, Sandro Kopp living in her centuries-old family home in Scotland.

And her twin children’s father John Byrne often comes and stays at the estate to help take care of the family, and show that they are still indeed family despite not being married and being in love with other people.

Rumors have swirled that the relationship between the three, plus John Byrne’s girlfriend, is more than a love based on shared children. This is partially because John met Tilda and Sandro at the airport and greeted them both warmly, then preceded to help carry Sandro’s bag.

Tilda says that the truth is much more boring than speculation, however, no one can deny that their set up is not conventional.

Whether they went from polyamorous lovers, or simply get along really well, no one can deny that having two men under one roof, even part time, must be a balancing act where a lesser woman would fail at. Tilda has never been accused of being subpar at anything though. Their situation works, however, she says she would not recommend it to just anyone.

  1. Egads, who proof-reads this stuff???????????????? Even more curious is how people like this reporter get and keep jobs as a writer???????????????

  2. This article needs some serious editing…

    Judging other people and how they live their lives is a waste of your own life.

    Monogamy and marriage are two seperate words for a reason.

    All we have is trust and communication to rely upon. So how about you just chill out control freaks. We can only control our own actions. You be you and let others be who they are. Geesh

  3. If you have to be in an open relationship why would you make the marriage commitment? there are far to many risks involved in behavior such as this

  4. And just because they are celebrities makes us part and parcel to their private activities? I couldn’t care any less. Please do not garble up my internet with crap like this. Their private lives are THEIR business!

  5. All of this garbage is geared towards trying to justify their own bad behavior when it happens. Could Hollywood be any MORE hedonistic? They don’t have enough award shows to pat themselves on the back? sara56,you hit the nail on the head. Not only are you insecure,but desperate as well,to put up with hedonistic behavior. My,how our American morals have fallen. None of this behavior is all right; Hollywood just chooses to SAY it is. That doesn’t make it so.

  6. This type of relationship is never a good one and normally will not end well. I think most people would have a hard time living this kind of life as feelings would get in the way.

  7. I don’t understand what all the “noise” is about. We need to realize that fidelity is not working in this country. Let’s be honest the majority of us come from families where one of the spouses were not faithful. If the unfaithful spouse does not come home with a baby, we just keep it a secret and don’t talk about it. Then the man gets too old to cheat and the wives walk around with this secret because after all the family is the most important, not the individuals in the family, but the family.

  8. Faithful Romeo & Juliette – far more romantic than this adulterous relationship. Wanting someone all for yourself is romantic.

  9. ‘The couple have had their ups and downs in there nearly half decade long marriage” Wow they have been together for nearly a half decade? Almost 5 years? Is that considered long in Hollywood? I think they mean century.
