8 Things You Didn’t Know About Scarlett Johansson And Ryan Reynolds Relationship
The relationship between Scarlett Johnasson and Ryan Reynolds happened so fast and ended so quickly, many people forget these two were ever together! Another reason people might have forgotten this Hollywood romance ever happened is because they were fiercely private about their relationship. These two were rarely ever photographed together and almost never spoke about each another in the press. Since their split, Reynolds and Johansson have both moved on with new relationships and started their own families with new people — which we love — but we also love looking back on old couples to see how far they’ve come! Here’s a look at 8 things you didn’t know about Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds relationship!
8. Whirlwind Romance
They started dating in April 2007 and were engaged in May 2008. Scarlett and Ryan fell hard and fast. They got married after only a year of dating in an extremely private ceremony at a remote wilderness retreat outside Vancouver in September 2008. When they exchanged nuptials, Johansson was only 23, while Reynolds was 31. Their rushed marriage was met with criticism as many people speculated she was much too young to get married. In September 2009, even she herself said she hadn’t put much thought into it: “I never really thought about getting married — it just kind of happened. You hope that the relationship makes you better, that you learn things about yourself.” She has since admitted in the press that she married “way too young” and “wasn’t ready.”
7. As Private as Possible
One of the biggest struggles for celebrities is how to maintain their privacy while in the spotlight, and throughout their two year marriage, Reynolds and Johansson were well known for being fiercely private with the details of their relationship. In an 2010 interview with GQ, Reynolds talked about their desire for privacy. “Things change when you get married in general. But in terms of being a couple that’s in a public situation and speculated about and all that nonsense, it’s changed a little bit. I’m a little more guarded. I’ve unilaterally not addressed it…For the most part — I can only speak for me, as one-half of that relationship — I choose to remain as private as possible without being secretive,” he said.
