Playboy interviews are a guilty pleasure of mine. As mundane as the rest of the magazine usually is, the profile Q & A's have always been interesting because the interviewer always gets at least one interesting kernel out of the celebrity in any said issue. Case in point, Scarlett Johanson's take 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," she told Playboy in this month's celeb Q&A. "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. 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.
Sounds like we know why ScarJo's marriage to Ryan Reynolds ended and why she's currently separated to Romain Dauriac after two years of marriage. ScarJo's gotta get hers.
But when you break down the biology and evolution of it all, she's not 100 percent wrong.
