The Big Hollywood Romance
People are so caught up in fairytales many forget that it is not foolproof. Johansson was just 23 years old when she married Ryan Reynolds, and they had an age difference of eight years.
That is common, but Scarlett was way too young for a guy like Reynolds looking for someone to settle with and start a family.
Scarlett and Ryan dated only a year and decided to marry real soon. Scarlett was not hesitant because, well, who makes good decisions in their 20’s.
Was Ryan Reynolds Jealous of Scarlett Johansson’s fame?
Right now, both are on an equal radar, but in the beginning, Scarlett Johansson was in a league of her own, and Ryan Reynolds was barely making it.
Many reports suggest that Ryan was jealous and frustrated that nothing worked for him while Scarlett Johansson, on the other hand, had it easy.
Well, she worked hard for it, and she deserves it, but we get that ego clashing part.
Scarlett was always away from home
While Ryan married Scarlett, he was 31 years old, and he wanted a wife who was with him more and not always away on shoots.
It was hard for Scarlett as that was the time Scarlett rose to worldwide fame with Black Widow Character. Scarlett was divorced officially in the year 2011, but by 2010, it was said that they both separated.
In the year 2010, Iron Man 2 was released, in which Scarlett was introduced as Black Widow. So, this might have been another breaking point.
Affairs and Failures
There have been several occasions where they both were spotted having dinner during the film promotion and showed a lot of signs of dating.
Ryan Reynolds did end up with her and is now married and has three beautiful children with her. Scarlett, on the other hand too is married and has everything she worked for.
To put it simply, Scarlett wanted a career at the age of 23, and Reynolds wanted a family at the age of 31. Both got everything they wanted but not with each other.
