Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds have announced their separation after almost two years of marriage.
“After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated,” they said in a statement.
A source claims that Johansson, 26, instigated the split. She started looking for an apartment in New York City, and is currently on vacation with her girlfriends in Jamaica.
Johansson and Reynolds, 34, got married in a small ceremony in Vancouver, Canada back in September 2008. The wedding was so private that there were never any wedding photos released.
Since their wedding, the couple remained private about their marriage. In April 2010, Johansson told In Style that she enjoyed married life with Reynolds, saying, “That part of your life is certain, in a way. You’ve got your home in that other person.”
When Reynolds was voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive, he told the magazine that the greatest part of marriage is, “You get to hang out with your best buddy every day.”
It was only last month that the couple was spotted looking cozy together in New York.
What do you all think of their separation? I’m still actually surprised but I think it’s because they weren’t very public about their marriage.
