How Swinging Saved The Marriage Of A Hollywood Star

If you’re familiar with the popular HBO show _Silicon Valley, _then you know who the character Richard Hendricks (played by actor Thomas Middleditch) is. If you don’t, no worries. All you need to know is that he’s a Hollywood celebrity and he recently opened up about about his real life alternative relationship arrangement with his wife, Mollie.

This revelation/confession took place in a _Playboy _interview when the interviewer asked him, “You and one of the Godzilla writers visited a swingers club with your partners during production. Are you and Mollie, your wife of four years, familiar with the swinging scene?”

Middleditch’s response was: “I don’t know how much I can say, because I don’t want my wife to be mad at me. Only after I got married was I like, “Mollie, I’m sorry, but we have to get nontraditional here.” To her credit, instead of saying “Fuck you, I’m out,” she was like, “Let’s figure this out.” To be honest, swinging has saved our marriage.”

He then goes on to share quite a bit, so hopefully he didn’t get himself in trouble with his wife! To read the rest of the interview, go here: (Credit to for the featured image above)
