Actress Scarlett Johansson has opened up a bit about her split from husband Ryan Reynolds, saying that she "wasn't prepared to do the work" required to make a marriage successful. Perhaps she should have thought of that before taking the plunge? They were young and in love, so we can't fault her for trying. She normally keeps her famously pouty lips zipped about this matter, but she has opened up a bit.
The couple split in 2010 and officially divorced in July, and she has not said much. But in a feature for Cosmopolitan, Johansson said, "Relationships are complicated and being married is a living, breathing process. I think I was not fully aware of the peaks and valleys. I wasn't prepared to hunker down and do the work… Both of us were extremely busy. We spent so much time apart."
She is not regretful of the union, though! She said, "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."
