A lot has gone by Scarlett Johansson through the years, with her being busier than ever as one of Hollywood A-list stars. So it can be forgiven that a lot of fans have forgotten that “The Avengers” star was once married to “Deadpool” actor, Ryan Reynolds.
The two began their relationship back in 2007, which then lead to their marriage a year later in September 2008. Unfortunately though, the marriage didn’t last long. In less than two years of being married, they announced their split in December of 2010, with their divorce being finalised in 2011.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Johansson let us in on her side of the story in the marriage. In the interview, she cited her age and romanticised view of marriage that lead to its downfall, but assured fans that she’s in a better place now.
“The first time I got married I was 23 years old,” the 35 year-old actress said, referring to Reynolds. “I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage. Maybe I kind of romanticized it, I think, in a way. It’s a different part of my life now. I feel like I’m in a place in my life, I feel I’m able to make more active choices. I’m more present, I think, than I’ve been before.”
She would eventually married again in 2013, with French Journalist Romain Dauriac, whom she had a daughter with in the same year. The marriage would also turn out to be another bust as they would eventually split in 2016. Currently, her is in a relationship with “Saturday Night Live” co-head writer Colin Jost, who she got engaged with last May.
“The idea of building a family, making a family, and having that work, I like that idea,” the “Lucy” actress told Vanity Fair. “I think that would be wonderful. I’ve always wanted that. I wanted that also in my marriage to my daughter’s father as well. It just wasn’t the right person. But I like that idea.”
Both Johansson and Reynolds haven’t spoken much about their marriage since the divorce. However, we do hope the two would eventually reconcile with each other and even star in a movie together.
