Wait? Did ScarJo Actually Marry Ryan Reynolds?

By Zachary Holt

It's truly hard to fathom that Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were at one point, married. Not that the idea of it is impossible to imagine, as both are highly successful and attractive movie stars, but that so much time has passed since their marriage and subsequent divorce. As of now, ScarJo and Reynolds have both remarried to other highly successful people, in Colin Jost and Blake Lively, respectively. Jost is a star on Saturday Night Live, while Lively's reputation can stand on itself.

Scarlett Johansson Opening up about Marriage to Ryan Reynolds

While the timing is seemingly obsure, it does appear to be coordinated for the release of Johansson's new movie, Marriage Story. In an interview with Vanity Fair, SacrJo opened up about her previous marriage with Reynolds and why it didn't end up working out. Suffice it to say, the romance and relationship were youthful and embodied innocent and blissful passion, but utlimately, didn't translate into the mature marriage that both had anticipated. Johansson said that she's thankful for the experience, though.

The True Meaning of Marriage

At the time that Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds got hitched, ScarJo was only 23 years old. She credits that age for not being fully aware of what marriage stood for and entailed. In Vanity Fair, she shared, "... 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." This is a natural progression, though, for young people as they explore who they are and what their expectations for the future are. ScarJo believes it was a valuable learning lesson.

Sharing What She's Learned

Like all of us, we experience life and take away the valuable lessons, hopefully. The previous two marriages that Johansson has gone through have proved no different. In her interview with Vanity Fair, she stated, "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." Her experiences have provided her with a sense of what to expect in marriage and she believes that it still have a wonderful place in society.

Moving on to a New Chapter


The experiences that ScarJo has been able to take from previous marriages have allowed her to be happy in her current relationship with Colin Jost. The same can be said for Reynolds who seems to have the perfect marriage with Blake Lively. It's important to realize that the celebrities we follow are humans too, and we all go through trials and tribulations in life in order to develop into the best versions of ourselves. Here's to hoping that both Scarlett and Ryan's current marriages end in happiness for both of them.
