In a rare comment about her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson opened up about their past relationship during an appearance on the “Goop” podcast hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow.
When asked how many times she had been married, Johansson, known for her role in “Marriage Story,” responded, “Three times.”
Paltrow then mentioned Reynolds, to which Johansson acknowledged, “We weren’t married for very long.”
Paltrow expressed admiration for Reynolds, saying, “We love a good Ryan Reynolds in our house.” Johansson replied, “He’s a good guy.”
The “Lucy” star was married to Reynolds, known for his role in “Deadpool,” from 2008 to 2010, and their divorce was finalized in July 2011 after announcing their split in December 2010.
Although Johansson and Reynolds rarely speak publicly about their past relationship, Johansson briefly touched upon it in a 2019 Vanity Fair profile, reflecting on her first marriage at the age of 23.
“I mean, the first time I got married I was 23 years old,” she said. “I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage. Maybe I kind of romanticized it, I think, in a way.”
After her divorce from Reynolds, Johansson married journalist Romain Dauriac in 2014. However, their marriage ended in 2017, and they continue to co-parent their 8-year-old daughter, Rose.
Johansson then began dating “Saturday Night Live” comedian Colin Jost in 2017, and the couple got engaged in 2019. They tied the knot in a private ceremony at Johansson’s home in Palisades, N.Y., and welcomed their first child together, a son named Cosmo, in 2021.
On the other hand, Reynolds started dating “Gossip Girl” alum Blake Lively in 2011, and the couple got married the following year in a ceremony held at a South Carolina plantation. They faced backlash for the venue choice and later apologized.
Reynolds and Lively now share four children: James, Inez, Betty, and a recently born infant whose name has not been publicly revealed.
Despite their past relationship, Johansson’s recent comment about Reynolds was positive, acknowledging him as a “good guy.”
It’s clear that both Reynolds and Johansson have moved on with their lives and found happiness in their subsequent relationships and families.
