Scarlett Johansson Opens Up About 'Romanticized' Marriage To Ryan Reynolds

I'm not married, but I'm pretty sure that anyone who is could tell you that marriage is hard. Especially when you're young. Especially when you're super famous.

Scarlett Johansson has recently opened up about the struggles she faced in her marriages.

Scarlett is currently engaged to SNL's Colin Jost, but she's been married twice before.

In 2014, Scarlett married advertiser Romain Dauriac, with whom she shares one daughter, Rose. They divorced in 2017. Before that, in 2008, Scarlett was married to Hollywood superstar Ryan Reynolds from 2008-2011.

“The first time I got married I was 23 years old,” Scarlett recently said of her marriage to Ryan.

“I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage. Maybe I kind of romanticized it, I think, in a way," she said, although she didn't name Ryan directly.

When asked about the time they were married, Scarlett said, "It's a different part of my life now.”

“I feel like I'm in a place in my life, I feel I'm able to make more active choices. I'm more present, I think, than I've been before.”

Scarlett likely channeled those feelings into her newest role.

Scarlett is playing a woman going through a heart-wrenching divorce in the film Marriage Story that's coming out soon, and was actually going through her second divorce during the filming process.

Scarlett admitted that she's hoping to build a family in her marriage with Colin.

"The idea of building a family, making a family, and having that work, I like that idea. I think that would be wonderful."

"I've always wanted that."

"I wanted that also in my marriage to my daughter's father as well. It just wasn't the right person. But I like that idea."

It looks like her current engagement to Colin might be fitting the bill for her.

"He killed it," Scarlett said of the proposal between her and Colin. "He did like a whole James Bond situation. He's got a lot behind that news desk."

"He's very charming and very thoughtful and romantic."

"I was surprised. Even if you kind of imagine what that moment is going to be like, it's still a beautiful moment," she said.

"It was a very special moment."

"I think more than anything when someone tells you they want to share the rest of their life with you and that is just is a lovely, special thing.”

Apparently the love for Colin isn't just from Scarlett, either.

A source told Us Weekly that Scarlett's daughter, Rose, is obsessed with him. "Colin is a great father figure for Rose," the source said.

"He loves playing with her and she is obsessed with him."

It sounds like a perfect match! We're so glad to hear that Scarlett's happy, especially with how notoriously private she is with her life.
