Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds may have split up after only two years of marriage, but that doesn’t mean that their time together was any bit of a mistake. In fact, Johansson, herself says that it was “the best thing I ever did”.
“I’m a big believer that when something feels right, you should do it…I’m a big believer in instinct. Getting married was the right thing to do because it was natural. It grew out of a romance and love and a desire to have a future with somebody, and I was very fortunate that I married somebody who turned out to be the person I thought he would be.”
The 27-year-old actress says that while she misses “having a partner and a confidant,” she knows that she had to do what she had to do:
“Relationships are complicated…Being married is a living, breathing process. I think I was not fully aware of the peaks and the valleys. I wasn’t prepared to hunker down and do the work… Both of us were extremely busy. We spent so much time apart. It’s very difficult.”
Since the couple’s split in 2010, Reynolds has been linked to Blake Lively, while Johansson was linked to Sean Penn.
