Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo and Pink are to take on the controversial topic of sex addiction in their new film Thanks for Sharing.

The directorial debut from the writer behind The Kids are Alright (which saw Ruffalo nominated for an Oscar), shows Ruffalo playing a recovering sex addict in New York who decides to attempt his first relationship in five years with Phoebe (Paltrow), who struggles to deal with his therapy.

Tim robbins, Josh Gaf and Pink (appearing with the credit Alecia Moore) also star as Ruffalo's fellow sex addicts battling their own demons.

Not the first film to take on the topic of sex addiction, it is the first to take a comedic, almost rom-com style approach to it, in stark contrast to dark sex addiction movie Shame, staring Michael Fassbender.

Thanks for Sharing debuted at the 2012 at the Toronto International Film Festival, where The Hollywood Reporter's reviewed David Rooney said, 'Showing an even-handed mix of dramatic episodes with light moments, [Stuart] Blumberg and [Matt] Winston's script mostly treats sex addiction not as joke fodder but as a serious condition.'

The film is due for release on 20 September. Watch the trailer…
