In the newest issue of W magazine, The Other Boleyn Girl, costars Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson, discuss everything from monogamy to food to politics.

Currently dating Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson is famous for saying people are not monogamous, something she brings up again in the article. “I’ve been battered for saying that I don’t believe humans are monogamous by nature. The response was, like, ‘What a ho-bag!’ I didn’t mean that I don’t practice monogamy in my own life — of course I do! I’m not going to be in some tarty relationship. But I stick by what I said. I remember another time, I said I get tested for AIDS twice a year, and again that got spun as me being promiscuous. But I was single at the time, and I think it’s important to do that!”

Meanwhile, Natalie Portman (who fears people see her as boring) is into the idea of monogamy but isn't too keen on marriage, "I’m into monogamy. But I’m not really into marriage right now. I sort of hate the legal aspect of it. What does the state have to do with it? Why are they making rules that say my lover can stay in the United States if they’re foreign or share my health care benefits because I’m straight — but if you’re gay, you can’t have that?”


This isn't the only place the girls disagree. Scarlett is a stout Obama supporter while Natalie likes what Clinton has to offer.
