Like Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson has had her fair share of Hollywood romance.
Some of Johansson’s alleged relationships include a brief fling with Jude Law in 2003, a few dates with Jared Leto around 2004, and a short-lived romance with Sean Penn in 2011.
A waitress reportedly caught the co-stars getting close over dinner before he and Johansson split.
"It was just the two of them, and they were laughing and flirting," the spy said.
"Acting is a very strange world to be co-existing in," she said. There's always going to be the more successful person. Because actors, if they're not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity—to the fact that nobody wants them." She added, "[Marriage] takes a lot of work.
It takes a man who's not only confident in the love that you have for one another, but confident in what he has going on in his own career.
That seems to be more of Johansson's doing: you rarely really see her parading around in public with her paramours — not even her second husband, French journalist Romain Dauriac, whom she married in a secret ceremony in 2014 and divorced as quietly as possible in 2017. She got tired of the double standard," a source told Reynolds was engaged to fellow Canadian Morisette from 2003 to 2007.
Almost immediately after their split was announced, rumblings of a romance with Johansson emerged.
There are hardly any photographs of Johansson and Reynolds together. When he wanted her there, he expected her to drop everything and come to him.
"He's more traditional and she's more independent," an insider said (via the ). There was a lack of warmth between them, that was troubling…He said it sounded like she was yelling at him every time she talked to him. "There has to be a real understanding of how you share your time, especially when two people's careers are going at the same rate.
Or even if one person is more successful than the other, that also proves challenging. that Reynolds' box office bombs may have played a role in their divorce.
In fact, according to a Current Population Survey conducted in 2014 based on information provided by 31,075 male-female couples, the average age difference between heterosexual couples in the U. Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson fit in more with the Hollywood norm than the U. average, since the two of them are eight years apart.
Johansson was just 24 when the couple started dating, while Reynolds was 32.
Her highest-profile relationship before marrying Reynolds was with fellow actor Josh Hartnett, whom she met on the set of the movie back in 2007, "It was difficult spending so much time apart with all our different commitments and both of us flying all over the world." This wouldn't be the first time a busy schedule would doom one of Johansson's relationships, though.
