Scarlett Johansson is the highest-grossing box office star of all time. The actress portrayed an expert spy and hand-to-hand combatant named Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Her role, which ended when she sacrificed herself to save the lives of the earth that Thanos had destroyed, brought her much attention and love. However, fans do also know her as the ex-wife of Hollywood’s humor box Ryan Reynolds.
Scarlett and Ryan didn’t last long after they started dating in 2007 and got married shortly after that in 2008. She has always been very private about her personal life and didn’t speak much about it. But after a long pause, she did open up about her marriage to the Deadpool star in a 2019 interview, where she talks about being married at a young age.
Scarlett Johansson reflected on her with Ryan Reynolds
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were very discreet during their dating period. As they rarely talked about their relationship in interviews or were photographed together. Unfortunately, the couple separated in 2011 after three years of marriage. In a 2019 interview with Vanity Fair, the actress gave an account of her first marriage for the first time.
The Avengers star compared her current relationship [then engaged to her current husband, Colin Jost] and the very first experience in marriage, but she did not mention the Deadpool actor’s name. The 37-year-old actress told the magazine that “I mean, the first time I got married I was 23 years old”. She shared how she had romanticized the notion of marriage and later realized the realities of it.
“I feel like I’m in a place in my life [where] I’m able to make more active choices. I’m more present, I think, than I’ve been before,” said the actress.
Scarlett believes that in her journey to find love, she has changed a lot and everything is different now when she looks back. Meanwhile, both of them are happy in their lives now with their kids and life partners. Johansson married comedian Colin Jost and Ryan Reynolds is ready to welcome a new baby with Blake Lively soon.
