Recently divorced Scarlett Johansson shared some unusually candid views on monogamy in a recent interview with Playboy.
The actress, who split from French journalist Romain Dauriac last month, described the idea of committing to one partner as “not natural”.
“I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing,” she said.
“I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person. I might be skewered for that, but I think it’s work. It’s a lot of work. And the fact that it is such work for so many people—for everyone — the fact of that proves that it is not a natural thing. I
“It’s something I have a lot of respect for and have participated in, but I think it definitely goes against some instinct to look beyond.”
The interview is thought to have taken place before the actress announced her break-up from Dauric.
She was previously married to Ryan Reynolds for three years.
