Scarlett Johansson is not up for monogamy.
The NY-native, Ghost in the Shell star, sat down for an interview with Playboy magazine and discussed marriage, her daughter and latest movie. She also shared her views on monogamy.
“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. I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person.”
Scarlett has just recently split from her second husband, French journalist Romain Dauriac with whom she had her first child, daughter Rose.
“For me, it’s the best thing that has ever happened. Ever. Somebody once described it to me as your heart growing this other chamber, and I think that’s really profoundly true.”-says ScarJo in regards to her daughter.
Prior to her marriage with Dauriac, she was married for two years with actor Ryan Reynolds.
However, Scarlett doesn’t feel like monogamy is something that comes natural to human beings.
“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.”
That is to say, Scarlett and Romain still have a friendly relationship. She talked about how he had to move to the states for her and embrace New York in his own, unique way.
“He was making meatballs the other night, actually. I wasn’t home. I was away, and he sent me a picture.”-said Scarlett. “He was like, “I’m a real New Yorker, and I love The Sopranos!””
Adored by both men and women, she seems like she has always been on top of the dating game. Surprisingly, she said she never dated much in her 20s. It feels like her heart is set to her acting and her kid.
Her music career is addressed as well. She debuted as a singer in 2008 covering a few of Tom Waits’ songs on her Anywhere I Lay My Head. Being a lifetime Waits fan myself, I was astonished to hear how uniquely she approached the songs. Her velvety, dense vocals are to die for. Give it a spin!
I love Scarlett for her multi-faceted personality and the elusive, sexy vibe that she gives off.
I think she understands herself and her needs quite well. Maybe it’s time that we looked into ourselves a bit more?
