    Right to say "it's my business"?

    Hi there, I've seen a movie in which a character says "it's my own business" instead of "it's none of your business".

    That's "A Million Ways to Die in the West 2014"


    Is it right and correct to say sentences like "it's my (own) business" or "it's not your business" instead of "it's none of your business"?


    Do they represent the same meaning of "it's none of your business"?

    I do not mean "to mind my business"!


    The time in which it is said: from 01:05:10 to 01:05:28


    I believed both are the same, but I didn't find any reference to prove it


    Thanks everyone
    That's "A Million Ways to Die in the West 2014"

    Hello Innnna, and welcome to the forum.
    Are you sure that's what they said?
    According to the link below, they may have said "who I go out with is my own business."

    Okay, the short answer is: yes, it's possible, depending on the context/intonation.
