Scarlett Johansson praises ex Ryan Reynolds

Scarlett Johansson made an appearance on Gwyneth Paltrow’s The Goop podcast when her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds’ name came up. Surprisingly the actress had only good things to say. 

Scarlett talks about Ryan Reynolds

Ryan’s name popped up in a conversation when Paltrow asked Scarlett if she had been married two times to which Johansson replied, correcting Gwyneth as she was married thrice. "Oh, that's right, because I forgot that you were married to Ryan Reynolds!" Gwyneth said. "Goals!"

"Yes," Scarlett replied, while mentioning their initial meeting, "We weren't married very long, but we were married when I first met you." Johansson was married to Ryans from 2008 to 2011, and the two seem to have no bad blood in between because when Paltrow praised Reynolds, who is now married to Blake Lively, saying, "We love a good Ryan Reynolds in our house," Scarlett wholeheartedly agreed said, "He's a good guy." 

After Scarlett and Ryan split, she got married to Romain Dauriac in 2014. The pair share a daughter, Rose, who's now 8. Scarlett and Romain called it quits in 2017.

Scarlett talks about Colin Jost

Scarlett met her current husband, Colin Jost, in 2006, initially when she was only 20, and he was 23. Scarlett was hosting an episode of SNL where Colin was a writer. The couple reconnected years later and married in 2020, and Scarlett gave birth to their son Cosmo in August 2021. Scarlett opened up, saying, "I would never have probably been ready for a relationship like the one that I have with Colin at different times in my life because I wasn't comfortable setting my own boundaries. I didn't know not only what I wanted but what I needed from somebody else."


Scarlett spoke about what she expected out of her partner and explained, "It's hard to be in a relationship anyway because you have to compromise all the time and whatever, and sometimes your lives separate, and they come back together and blah blah blah," she said. "But I never realized, 'Oh, it's really important for me; I need to be with a compassionate person. That's a fundamental characteristic that has to be there.'"

She also spoke about how why her relationship with her husband Colin works, "It's not, like, the sexiest thing to do, to examine those fundamental characteristics that are a necessity for you, but I think that's why it worked with Colin, and I at that time. I was finally able to step back and actually respect myself enough to know what those things were and be OK with it."

How did Colin and Scarlett get together?
ScarJo first met on the set of SNL back in 2006 when Scarlett was hosting for the first time and Colin had just become a writer on the show. Though they seemingly had made some good impressions on each other (more on that later), it wasn't until her second hosting gig in 2017 that they finally hit it off.

Did Scarlett Johansson have a baby with Colin?
Johansson and husband Colin Jost share a baby boy named Cosmo they welcomed last year. Johansson is also mom to an 8-year-old daughter, Rose, she shares with her ex-husband Romain Dauriac.

Are Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds friends?
While we doubt the two hold any hatred towards one another, they certainly aren't friends. Scarlett has oftentimes avoided answering questions regarding her marriage to Ryan, as she is "no expert" and believes asking someone about their marriage without knowing them is tasteless.
