You might not know this, but the actor and actress behind Deadpool and Black Widow were actually married to each other. Yes, they divorced long before they found their superhero roles, and their marriage was so short-lived that it is hardly discussed.
Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson were married for two short years but have now moved on and found love.
So why the great divide?
Both Reynolds and Johansson are known to be frank and open-hearted people with the added benefit of a silver tongue. According to Johansson’s latest interview, maturity is a big player in the game.
Despite being known to have a confident and open image, Reynolds even asked not to work with his ex-wife. The reason is that he just feels awkward with her. Well, you can’t blame him; who has a good relationship with their ex anyway?
So what led to this divorce? Was it one person who hurt another? Or did the love just fade away?
The actors have never bad-mouthed each other, and tabloids have not received any hot tea regarding their marriage. Of course, as celebs, they must also be respectful to each other.
