Scarlett Johansson Implies Ryan Reynolds Was insecure with her success


Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds’ three-year marriage was not built to last, but it left an indelible mark.

Johansson hinted in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan that her marriage to Ryan Reynolds didn’t endure because of her career.

“The logistics of being with another actor are challenging,” Johansson admits. “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. There may be a competitive thing.”

Scarlett’s description of marriage, although without mentioning her ex-husband, shows the problems they encountered before the end of their relationship.

This isn’t the first time Johansson has publicly chastised Reynolds for his insecurities. She told Parade magazine in April that dating another actor is “volatile.”


“There’s always going to be the more successful person. It’s related to rejection. Because actors, if they’re not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity — to the fact that nobody wants them… (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.”

Scarlett and Ryan are fortunate in that love has returned to their lives.

In 2014, Scarlett married Romain Dauriac, a modern art dealer who is 34 years old. They are competitive, but it is all in good fun. For example, while watching ABC’s Shark Tank, they once got into a fight. “My husband had this idea for an app and was like, ‘We should pitch this to Shark Tank!” she says. Scarlett attempted to persuade him otherwise, but he refused. “He was like, what? You mean it wouldn’t pass the Sharks?’ I was like, ‘Were not gonna get into a fight over this!'”

The Captain America: Civil War star told Cosmo, “We’re both street rats. It seems wonderful to be raised in a natural setting, but I wouldn’t know how to do it. A big city would always draw me back.”

Johansson has had a run of critical triumphs (Lost in Translation, Her, Vicky Cristina Barcelona), whereas Reynolds has had a more sporadic career, but has earned a greater reputation for himself this year with box office smash Deadpool, lifting him out of underdog status.

One of the darkest times in Johansson’s life occurred while she was dating another star, she confessed. “Long, long ago,” she revealed, “I had someone in my life who was forever unavailable … but, like, so attractively unavailable. Rock bottom is the moment when you’re like, ‘I’ve lost myself. Why am I standing outside this bar at 1:30 in the morning texting while my friends are inside? Or taking a taxi to see him at some ungodly hour? This isn’t me.’ That is the moment you’ve gotta cut it off. Otherwise, it will keep coming back, suck your blood. You keep making the same mistakes until you don’t make them, you know?”

Reynolds went on to marry Blake Lively, a successful actress (Gossip Girl) and businesswoman.
