Swinton: 'My Romantic Life Is Not As Weird As Reported'

British actress TILDA SWINTON has attempted to clear up misconceptions about her romantic life once and for all in a new magazine interview, insisting it's not as complicated or exotic as reported.
For years the media has suggested the Oscar winner has been involved in a menage a trois with two lovers - artists John Byrne and Sandro Kopp - but the Michael Clayton star insists her private life has been blown out of proportion.
She tells feminism magazine Bust she's a one-man woman, who, like others, maintains a friendship with her ex and father of her 10-year-old twins.
Swinton explains, "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.
"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."
The actress accepts the arrangement might not be the norm, but folk shouldn't believe everything they read about her in the newspapers.
She adds, "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.
"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."
