Ryan Reynolds has always managed to maintain a high dose of privacy with regards to his life off-screen, but in an interview with Detail manages to shed some light over dating and splitting-up from his ex-wife Scarlett Johansson. Get the details next!
One of the sexiest men alive, Ryan Reynolds covers Details
Magazine June 2011 issue and talks dating and his ex-wife Scarlett Johansson. There
have been a lot of rumors circling the split of this hot Hollywood
couple, but so far none of the two came out to shed some light over
the entire thing. Ryan and
Scarlett married in 2008 and ended their marriage two years
later, leaving the media out on a frenzy as the reason for the
split was not publicly displayed, leaving behind several
Soon after the split, rumors started flooding the media, but the two still didn't confirm or deny them to shed some light over the entire situation. Everyone was shocked by the couple's decision and their grip of privacy and this made the subject even more attractive for the rest.
Finally, after the two seem to have moved on, as Scarlett is now
rumored to be dating Sean
Penn, Ryan decides to shed a little bit of light over their
decision to split. Ryan told Detail in an exclusive interview that
the speculations in the media at the time of their split were
incorrect. He said:
“What was happening privately was the exact opposite of what was being reported. There was no story and no scandal, so the narrative was just created for me. That was the most disturbing part. I wasn't angry. I absolutely predicted every beat of it. There's an entire economy around this sort of thing—therefore it's gotta happen one way or another. There was a time, though, when looking at the Internet was a miracle cure for feeling good about myself.”
Ryan and Scarlett's split was amicable, to everyone's surprise, as most of the time Hollywood splits are filled with drama and scandals. Not the case here, and probably this was the reason why people were so interested in finding out what happened inside their home.
Apparently, there is a high amount of respect hovering over the two, mutual respect as Ryan doesn't throw the tiniest bad remark with regards to Scarlett and their relationship. He said:
“Departing a relationship and still maintaining the idea that this is still the same person I married is a great luxury that I experienced. Thankfully I was in a relationship where two people chose to remain on the high road in every regard.”
Ryan has always kept his private life private and was never too
keen on letting his things be shredded to pieces by the media. This
is one of the reasons he doesn't give details with regards to the
divorce, but does open-up about the pain of separation.
“Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain, but you come out of it. I'm not out of it yet. At all. But I sense that as I do come through it, there's optimism. How can there not be? I don't think I want to get married again, but you always reevaluate these things. Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up. I gotta say, I'm a different person than I was six months ago.”
Although Ryan is not ready to date yet, we hope he finds the right lady as he is just a gentleman. Living in the spotlight is definitely no easy task, but Ryan is doing great and we just can't wait to see him do his thing on the big screen.
