Scarlett Johansson Said She "Romanticized" Her Marriage to Ryan Reynolds
The actress is currently engaged to SNL's Colin Jost.
Scarlett Johansson has learned from her past loves.
“The first time I got married I was 23 years old,” Johansson said without naming Reynolds, 43. “I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage. Maybe I kind of romanticized it, I think, in a way.”
Johansson married Reynolds in 2008, and the two divorced in 2011.
“It’s a different part of my life now,” she said of that time period. “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.”
The Avengers: Endgame actress married French journalist Romain Dauriac in 2014. The two divorced in 2017 and share one daughter, Rose, 5.
“The idea of building a family, making a family, and having that work, I like that idea,” Johansson told Vanity Fair. “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.”
In October, Johansson said Jost, 37, “killed it” when he proposed with “a whole James Bond situation.”
“It was surprising, he’s got a lot behind that news desk he’s hiding,” she said, referring to his job as Weekend Update co-host. “He’s very charming and very thoughtful and romantic.”
She continued, “But yeah, I was surprised. Even if you kind of imagine what that moment’s gonna be like, it’s still [a] beautiful moment.”
“It was very personal. It was a special moment,” Johansson added of the proposal. “I think, more than anything, when someone tells you they want to spend their life with you, that’s a lovely, special thing.”
