Gwyneth Paltrow once advised a woman to give her husband oral sex following a fight, according to a friend.
The actress was having dinner with friends including Chelsea Handler when the unnamed woman told them she was furious with her spouse after a huge bust-up, but Gwyneth told her to let go of her anger and gave her the unusual advice.
Speaking on her late-night chat show, Chelsea told the audience: "We were at a dinner party one night and this girl was asking for advice and Gwyneth is an amazing advice giver.
"The woman was saying, 'I got into a big fight with my husband and I got home and I wanted to scream and yell' and Gwyneth was like, 'Whatever you're doing just do the opposite, just go at him with love and you give him a blow job.'"
However, Gwyneth was embarrassed when her pal told the story, putting her head in her hands she said: "What if my mum is watching this show?"
Gwyneth previously admitted she believes one of the reasons her 10-year marriage has lasted is because she is willing to "compromise" in order to be there for Coldplay star Chris Martin.
She said: "I have little kids in school. I want to maintain my marriage and my family, so I have to be here when he comes home."
Explaining an unnamed friend recently came to her for advice, she added: "She is an actress and in a new relationship with someone else with a big career, and I said this may not be feminist, but you have to compromise.
"It's been all about you and you're a big deal. And if you want what you're saying you want - a family - you have to be a wife, and that is part of the equation.
"Gloria Steinem may string me up by my toes, but all I can do is my best, and I can do only what works for me and my family."
