Love, marriage, and divorce are part of any love relationship, be it a movie star, singer, or commoner. But fame adds a tint of publicity to a marriage. Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson were once the power couple of Hollywood. But the fairytale romance could not withstand the test of time. After three years of matrimony, the A-list actors had announced that they were taking separate paths.
The ‘Deadpool‘ fame Ryan Reynolds and the ‘Marvel‘ star, Scarlett Johansson started dating publicly halfway through 2007. They tied the knot later in 2008, in a private ceremony held in a wilderness retreat in Vancouver with a small group of family and friends. “I never really thought about getting married — it just kind of happened. It seemed natural, the right thing to do. It was kind of a celebration of the time.” Johansson had shared her joy of getting married in an interview with Glamour. But the happiness was short-lived. In 2011, they announced their split.
Why Did They Get Divorced?
“I mean, the first time I got married I was 23 years old. I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage. Maybe I kind of romanticized it, I think, in a way.” Scarlett shared the reason for her divorce from Ryan Reynolds, after nine years, in 2019, in an interview with Vanity Fair. The reason for their split also revolved around their acting careers, schedules, and also their conflicting behaviors.
There are so many rumors flying around about their relationship that lost luster. This includes their jam-packed schedules, which left them no time for each other. Also both the actors are known for their stubbornness, which must have led to complexities in their marriage. Johansson had also once remarked to Cosmopolitan about competition and success in her profession, which could take a toll on a marriage.
