    Gwyneth Paltrow is a busy lady, what with her new film Contagion opening Friday, her burgeoning music career, her lifestyle outlet GOOP, her cookbook and whatever else she's got going in her glamorous life.

    But now she's really ready to get down and get busy...for a film.

    According to Variety, Gwyneth has signed on to star in Thanks for Sharing, a dramatic comedy we told you about costarring Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins and Joely Richardson about a group of unlikely friends who share a determination to forge healthy relationships despite being sex addicts attending a 12-step program.

    But don't think this is going to be all raunch for the players involved. The film actually comes from director Stuart Blumberg, who was nominated for an Academy Award for cowriting last year's standout flick The Kids Are All Right. And earlier this year, Jordan Horowitz (then a producer of the movie who is no longer attached to the project) confirmed to us that, similar to Kids, Thanks for Sharing will be just as touching. (No, not that kind of touching, people!)

    "It's a comedy. I wouldn't call it a dark comedy," Horowitz said. "It has a similar comedic tone to The Kids Are All Right in that it has that heart, the sweetness and that humanity, which I think for films of this size, it's so important."

    So, a sweet, comedic tale about recovering sex addicts starring some of our favorite stars? Yeah, we'll be happy to check in on their progress when this hits theaters.
