Tilda Swinton clears up her 'menage a trois' misconceptions

London, July 12 (ANI): British actress Tilda Swinton has made an attempt to clear up the misconceptions about her romantic life, insisting it's not as complicated or exotic as reported.

Swinton, 49, told feminism magazine Bust that her private life has been blown out of proportion, with the media suggesting that she is involved in a menage a trois with artists John Byrne and Sandro Kopp.

She told the magazine that she's a one-man woman, who, like others, maintains a friendship with her ex and father of her 10-year-old twins.

"I have never been married. I have two children with John Byrne... and we've not been a couple for many years, and we're very close friends, and we bring up our children together," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"For the last five years, I've been in another relationship. It's very boring and it's important to rectify, because there's some fantasy about us all living in a big hut together," she said.

The actress accepts the arrangement might not be the norm, but folks shouldn't believe everything they read about her in the newspapers.

"I think people are so used to the concept of people having children with somebody and then, somehow, ending up estranged from one another, that when people come along who really are there as a family forever... it's radical and somehow frightening," she said.

"I think many more people live in the way that we do - in a state of real love and support - than newspapers might lead you to believe.

"I think newspapers love a bit of friction, and we're a pretty friction-free zone. It's pretty dull," she added. (ANI)
