Gwyneth Paltrow 'left embarrassed after sex advice revelation'

Gwyneth Paltrow has been left embarrassed following the revelation that she once advised a friend that giving oral sex is a good way to settle arguments with partners.

Appearing on US TV show Chelsea Lately, the Hollywood star, who is married to - and possibly uses condoms with - Coldplay singer Chris Martin, squirmed in her seat when host Chelsea Hadley recalled a past incident involving the two of them.

Hadley explained the pair had been at the same dinner party when another guest revealed she had been rowing with her husband and felt like screaming and yelling to cope with the situation.

Comedienne Hadley claimed Paltrow responded by recommending: "Whatever you're doing, do the opposite - if you feel angry go at him with love and you give him a blow job."

Paltrow - known for her roles in hit films Shallow Hal and Sliding Doors - looked visibly shocked and said she hoped her mother was not watching the show.
