    I don’t think there’s anyway to g about telling him that without sounding like you’re gloating or trying to make him feel less of himself so I wouldn’t bother!

    I am not sure why this would be a thing to consider….I don’t believe it has anything to do with the current relationship so I’d have no reason to talk about it.

    this is one of those things you don’t bring up, unless you dated for awhile. the entertainment industry is a small business filled with more gossip than a high school cafeteria, if your husband hasn’t heard about it through the grapevine already, he likely won’t find out.

    I’m usually about full disclosure but this time I agree with pp’s, don’t say anything.

    It doesn’t have anything to do with your current relationship and it was only a fling anyways. So no need to say anything.

    I wouldn’t have brought up the name by myself but I also wouldn’t have lied about it if I was asked. Since he asked and you lied, I would tell him.

    Well it’s not a lie to not say anything NOW but obviously it was when you told him the guy has never made anything he had heard of. I still would probably let it go unless he brings it up and if so then be honest. And tell him what you told us. That you dient want him to doubt himself or have weird feelings about it

    @questionforyou:  I can’t be the only one wondering who the person is!? Can I? LOL.

    @questionforyou:  seriously, if your husband doesn’t know by this point, he won’t. you’d just be hurting him by bringing up the past. are you in the business? if not, even more reason to keep your mouth shut.

    Unless he directly asked me, “Hey, hun. Have you ever slept with an Oscar winner?” then I wouldn’t say anything. Why bother? It seems the only purpose would be to brag.
