Scarlett Johansson is getting candid about her thoughts on marriage and being a mother.
The 32-year-old actress sat down for an intimate chat with Playboy magazine for their March/April 2017 issue, in which she discusses her views on relationships. Johansson reportedly split from her husband, French journalist Romain Dauriac, over the summer, though the two have been spotted out together on multiple occasions since then.
Johansson says marriage is definitely a “responsibility.”
“I think marriage initially involves a lot of people who have nothing to do with your relationship, because it’s a legally binding contract, and that has a weight to it,” she says. “Being married is different than not being married, and anybody who tells you that it’s the same is lying. It changes things. I have friends who were together for 10 years and then decided to get married, and I’ll ask them on their wedding day or right after if it’s different, and it always is. It is. It’s a beautiful responsibility, but it’s a responsibility.”
She also has no problem discussing her belief that being monogamous isn’t “natural.”
“Well, with every gain there’s a loss, right?” she explains. “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,” she continues. “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.”
