Matthew Fox Denies Affair Rumors

After a stripper claimed she had a tryst with the Lost star, the actor refutes the allegations to Playboy

In Playboy's May issue, Lost star Matthew Fox addresses rumors that he was unfaithful to wife Margherita with a stripper.

"The story is not true, and I’m not going to comment (further) on it," the actor told the magazine.

In late February, Stefani Talbott told various tabloids that she and Fox had engaged in an affair that began in July after he visited the club where she worked. She went on to say that they didn't use protection and he never even told her to keep their tryst a secret.

Fox immediately denied the rumors and the story seemed to blow over fairly quickly. Now, he's gushing about his relationship with his wife, with whom he has two children.

"Margherita and I have been best friends and best lovers," he says. "She's the love of my life. We have managed to both be intensely independent and maintain that strength in our relationship. I am a man, and I am an appreciator of women. At the same time, Margherita is the s---. I can honestly say we're good together." 

He adds: "We've been together for 23 years. So let's leave it at that."
