Prior to ending her marriage to her second husband, Romain Dauriac, Scarlett Johansson gave an interview to Playboy (via Us Weekly) and 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.”
She went on to proclaim that the fact that marriage is such hard work for so many people is proof of how unnatural it is. “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,” she said.
Johansson, who separated from her first husband, Ryan Reynolds, in 2010, also described marriage as a “beautiful responsibility, but it’s a responsibility.” So, does this mean the movie star will hesitate to tie the knot and be 100 percent monogamous for a third time? Well, it appeared she was willing to give fidelity another shot when she linked up with boyfriend Colin Jost, a comedian known for his gig on Saturday Night Live. A source told E! News, “Scarlett says he is different than many of the men she has been with.”
Perhaps there’s some hope left for this die-hard monogamy hater after all!
