While Mo'Nique basks in the glow of a very successful awards season, the Precious star is revealing some interesting new details about her marriage to husband Sidney Hicks. The Oscar nominee for Best Supporting Actress tells Barbara Walters -- in The View doyenne's upcoming (and final) Oscars special -- that she and her hubby have somewhat of an open relationship.
"Could Sid have sex outside of his marriage with me? Yes. That’s not a deal-breaker," Mo'Nique said. "That’s not something that would make us say, 'Pack your things and let’s end the marriage.'"
"What if it’s 20 times?" she continued. "So what? We’ve been best friends for over 25 years, and we truly know who we are. Oftentimes, people get into marriages and they don’t know who they’re laying next to. I’m very comfortable and secure with my husband."
As for Mo'Nique, she says she's never strayed -- and has a certain way of keeping her man interested. "Let me say this: I have not had sex outside my marriage with Sidney," adding that he loves her famously unshaven legs.
"He loves the hairy legs," she said. "And if Sid likes the hairy legs, there you go… I’m 42 and very hairy."
Barbara Walters' final Oscar special on ABC, which will also include an interview with Best Actress nominee Sandra Bullock, airs this Sunday (7 p.m. ET on the east coast, and following ABC's live Oscars broadcast on the west coast).
