Scarlett Johansson usually plays coy when it comes to her personal life, but The Avengers star finally opens up about her failed marriage to Ryan Reynolds and the couple’s “devastating” divorce in Vogue’s May 2012 issue – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
The big screen bombshell, who quietly married Reynolds in 2008, reveals that though the divorce was “comically amicable,” it was far from easy.
“It was horrible,” she says. “Of course it’s horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you. You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn’t work out.”
Though she has admitted that she married way too young, the 27-year-old never imagined she would be a divorcee.
“This was something I never thought I would be doing,” she continues. “And there’s no way to navigate it. Nobody can give you the right answer. It’s never anything you want to hear. It’s a very lonely thing. It’s like the loneliest thing you’ll ever do, in some way.”
But even with all the pain, she doesn’t regret marrying Reynolds.
“Itwas a beautiful thing,” Johansson says. “The falling in love and getting married and making that commitment . . . I think it’s nice to know that you’re capable of loving somebody in that way. I think it’s a rare opportunity.”
And while she may have moved on with advertising executive Nate Naylor, Scarlett still isn’t over her divorce.
“I don’t feel on the other side of it completely, but it gets better,” she says. “It’s still there. More than anything, it’s just that not having your buddy around all the time is weird. There’s no rule book. I think it’s just time.”
