Ryan Reynolds: “A Lot of Pain” After Split From Scarlett Johansson


By Daniel Gates


Ryan Reynolds talks (briefly) about his breakup with Scarlett Johansson in the new Details, discussing the difficulties of divorce and his reluctance to date.

“Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain, but you come out of it,” says the Green Lantern star. “I’m not out of it yet. At all. But I sense that as I do come through it, there’s optimism. How can there not be?”

Reynolds is not eager to talk about Johansson in the wake of their split. “The media wasn’t invited to my marriage, and they’re definitely not invited into the divorce,” he says. Reynolds sounds like he’s in a good place right now, in the wake of his personal tumult: “Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up.”

As for finding a new relationship, Reynolds is not in a rush to date. “It just seems so kind of alien to me at this point. I’ve been in relationships pretty much since high school,” the actor explains. “Some people look at that as a good thing. I think wiser people might see that as a house of cards.”

Reynolds is not even positive he’ll get hitched a second time. “I don’t think I want to get married again,” he says, allowing, “But you always reevaluate these things.”
