If we’d managed to marry Ryan Reynolds we’d probably think it was the best thing we’d ever done – but we’re a little surprised to hear his ex-wife Scarlett Johansson say it. Aren’t they ex’s for a reason?
In fact, Scarlett has been getting a bit gushy about her former husband. As well admitting that getting hitched was “the best thing I ever did”, she’s opened up to Cosmopolitan about her two-year marriage,
“I'm a big believer that when something feels right, you should do it. I'm a big believer in instinct. Getting married was the right thing to do because it was natural. It grew out of a romance and love and a desire to have a future with somebody, and I was very fortunate that I married somebody who turned out to be the person I thought he would be.”
Too much time apart
Scarlett also addressed the reasons for her split from hunky Ryan, admitting that she didn’t put enough effort into their relationship,
“Relationships are complicated. Being married is a living, breathing process. I think I was not fully aware of the peaks and the valleys. I wasn't prepared to hunker down and do the work... Both of us were extremely busy. We spent so much time apart. It's very difficult.”
Now, maybe it’s just us - but does Scarlett sound a bit like someone who regrets ending her marriage? Ryan has since moved on is dating his Green Lantern co-star Blake Lively.
