While there was a brief moment of disappointment when I heard Scarlett Johansson was in Playboy, but only being interviewed, upon hearing her views on monogamy my frown turned upside down. Apparently Scar-Jo isn't down with that. And to that I say, more power to you Scarlett Johansson.
I could ramble on and on about what she said, but I think it's better to hear it straight one the hottie's mouth. Here's what she said in Playboy when asked about her view that she wasn't sure if humans "are designed to be monogamous."
Well, with every gain there’s a loss, right? So that’s a loss. You have to choose a path. 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. 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.
As Mr. Spock would say; "Fascinating." While that was no doubt the best part of the interview there was one more thing that I personally found interesting, her response to what she would be doing if not acting:
Oh gosh, I don’t know. I probably would have gone into some kind of medical profession. I’d be rooting around in somebody else! I’m interested in people.
Rooting around in somebody else... like maybe under the skin? Get it? The movie? Under the Skin (2013)? Oh, never mind you'll get it later. Anyway, if you want to check out the full interview with Scarlett Johansson, you can read it at Playboy.com.
