Retrospect is certainly 20/20. Now that Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson have announced that they’re divorcing, their marriage no longer looks like the shiny, happy ball of gorgeousness that we’d assumed it was while it was intact. Naturally, rumors have started circulating about what happened to the World’s Sexiest Couple. Some are now saying that Ryan cheated—giving the friendship he struck up with his “Green Lantern” co-star Blake Lively a second glance. And looking back at quotes from Scarlett, it was pretty obvious that something was up. “We have no time for dates,” she said in an interview with Liev Schreiber in Time Out New York in 2009.
“We work and then go home and—I, anyway—just stare at the wall for a few hours before I go to sleep,” she said. “I think it’s harder when both of you are really busy. Like in any profession, it’s difficult. You want to make sure you have time to invest in your family. It’s a challenge but it’s worth it.”
Rumor has it that Ryan and Scarlett had been in couples therapy for months and did a trial separation before announcing their divorce. Sigh.
