*You may have heard that Mo’Nique has expressed her thoughts on open marriages, but had not seen or heard a direct quote. Well, on the upcoming Barbara Walters Oscar special, the comedian/actress openly deals with that subject and her hairy legs, according to the NY Daily News.
Let’s just say that Mo feels it’s OK for her husband, Sidney Hicks, to get some from somebody else, but she won’t stray.
“Let me say this, I have not had sex outside my marriage with Sidney,” she said.
“Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me?” the ‘Precious’ star asked. “Yes. That’s not a deal-breaker. That’s not something that would make us say, ‘Pack your things and let’s end the marriage.'”
Mo’Nique goes on to say that even if it happened multiple times, it’d be OK with her.
“What if it’s 20 times? So what? We’ve been best friends for over 25 years, and we truly know who we are, Mo’Nique admitted. “Oftentimes, people get into marriages and they don’t know who they’re laying next to. I’m very comfortable and secure with my husband.”
She’s just as comfortable with her hairy legs ’cause Mr. Hicks is too
“He loves the hairy legs, and if Sid likes the hairy legs, there you go,” she said.
“I tried shaving one time, and it was so uncomfortable and painful,” Mo’Nique said, explaining why she chooses not to shave. “I said never again would I do that to myself,” she said. “I’m 42, and I’m very hairy.”
OK, so now we know Mo’Nique is real comfortable talking about her open marriage and her hairy legs, but on the other hand she’s rather uncomfortable discussing her chances of winning the Oscar for best supporting actress.
“I don’t like thinking about that, because I’m big on the universe,” she admitted. “I don’t want to start making this speech or [think about what] I’m going to say because I don’t want the universe to say, ‘Really? You so sure about that?’ Let’s not jinx it.”
