Scarlett Johansson Divorced Ryan Reynolds Because Marriage “Takes Work”

Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were only married for a little less than three years (2008 to 2011), and they’ve both since moved on with different partners, had babies, yada yada. But for a while there, they were kind of an “It Couple” in Hollywood, and a lot of people just couldn’t understand why they broke up, for some reason. If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck! Scarlett has finally sorta kinda alluded to her relationship with Ryan, though not really directly or in any way that’ll tell you anything important.

From Parade:

“Acting is a very strange world to be co-existing in,” the Lucy star told the magazine. “It’s very volatile. There’s always going to be the more successful person. It’s related to rejection. Because actors, if they’re not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity — to the fact that nobody wants them.”

“[Marriage] takes a lot of work. It takes a man who’s not only confident in the love that you have for one another, but confident in what he has going on in his own career. He has to be in a field that’s completely different from yours,” she explained to Parade.

Well, duh. This is why most Hollywood marriages fail. Egos get in the way, jealousy springs up and it’s all a mess. This was never going to work out, but hey, that’s all right. They both seem to be doing just fine without each other.

Blake Lively gave birth and we’re only just finding out about it

Goop Jr., otherwise known as Blake Lively, only announced that she was pregnant with her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds back in October. For this reason, it probably comes as a slight shock that she’s already given birth – in fact, she did so just before the New Year, and we’re only just finding out about it.

It was Page Six that got the “exclusive” details, which just amounted to the fact that Blake gave birth at home in Bedford, NY and that the baby was a bit early, but everyone is healthy and just fine. We don’t know if it’s a boy or girl, what the child’s name is or anything else. I mean, we don’t particularly care, but we wouldn’t know even if we wanted to.

In all seriousness, congrats to them and glad everything’s okay.

Scarlett Johansson Can Wear a Ring Without Being Engaged, People

So yeah, Scarlett Johansson has been dating that French bro Romain Dauriac for a few months now, and since Lord knows women can’t date men without wanting them to put a ring on their finger with the quickness, it was only a matter of time before the engagement rumours started. The New York Daily News published the above photo and then zoomed in on it approximately 500x in order to spot some “engagement bling” on Scarlett’s pretty little hand:

Wow, that’s… conclusive. So, she’s wearing a ring on her wedding finger and she’s in a relationship. When’s the ceremony? I haven’t even bought my dress yet! Pfft. Even I have an “engagement ring” I wear out on the subway to keep weirdos from talking to me and just because I got it on Etsy and it’s pretty and I like it. That doesn’t mean you should cue up ‘Here Comes the Bride’ anytime soon.

Let’s not forget that Scarlett herself said a couple of months back that she never thinks about marriage (especially after her first with Ryan Reynolds ended) and she doesn’t really think tying the knot is all that important. Agreed! Someone can be your life partner without $15k going down the drain and a piece of paper deeming it so.

Because this is the world we live in, Scarlett’s rep had to speak out and debunk this bullshit, saying simply: “Scarlett is absolutely not engaged.”

Well, that clears that up.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ Wedding Was Apparently the Cutest Ever

And they wrote their own wedding vows for one another, too! Isn’t that just the most? From People:

“They promised to support and love each other and to make each other laugh,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. The groom “said he would treasure Blake; she said she would adore him. The whole time they were beaming.”

The rustic, romantic festivities – held at Boone Hall Plantation outside Charleston, S.C. – featured whimsical touches, including after-dinner s’mores and a paper-lantern send-off.

The emotional highlight of the evening, however, was when Florence + the Machine singer Florence Welch, a close Lively pal, performed “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

The Marchesa-clad bride’s eyes “started to well up,” says the source. “A lot of people started to well up, actually.”

Oh man. I’m starting to well up just reading this. Florence Welch, performing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ at the wedding of two of the most seemingly-in-love celebrities this year? My goodness. Plus, s’mores. S’mores make me well up every single time, because they’re so damn good. And I’ll bet that these s’mores weren’t your standard, run-of-the-mill Hershey’s chocolate-filled. No, I’m willing to bet these were gourmet s’mores, and thinking of that just makes my mouth well up. With saliva.

Congratulations again, guys! Now I want pictures!

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Got Married, I Guess

From People:

A source confirms to PEOPLE that the couple tied the knot Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., just outside of Charleston.

The reception took place in a white tent at the plantation on Sunday evening. Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), a good friend of the Gossip Girl star, performed three songs live, and there was also a deejay who spun tunes. PEOPLE also confirmed that a cake was being driven down from Virginia for the event.

Lively’s mother and sister were also spotted in town, and a source told PEOPLE that the two had dinner in Charleston with Bette Midler earlier in the weekend.

Reps for the two actors had no comment.

Ok, so this really isn’t all that exciting – I think Blake Lively is pretty boring except for those nude photos that she won’t ever take again, and I don’t understand the appeal of Ryan Reynolds – but this is a little surprising, right? I mean, there’s the beautiful city of Charleston, and dinner with Bette Midler, and then a performance by Florence and the Machine? I wasn’t really thinking about this couple’s wedding, and I definitely wasn’t thinking that it would be so nice.

But hey, what do you think Scarlett Johansson is doing right now?

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Moved in Together

From People:

The couple, who were first linked late last year, “bought a beautiful country home” in Bedford, N.Y., a source tells PEOPLE.

And it’s not too shabby. “The house cost more than $2 million,” the source said of the property.

So it’s serious, then, huh? These two are settling down, walking dogs together, taking self pictures, and now they’re purchasing real estate together. I guess it’s a good thing. Now they can stop the constant displays of public affection (not that I personally mind; I think it’s rather cute), but for the sake of sad, sad Scarlett Johansson, it’s probably better that they have four walls to hide behind and call a home so they can do what they feel is necessary to further their blossoming love. Until Sean Penn realizes the error of his ways and invites girlfriend back into his home, his life, and by virtue, his pants, then she’s going to be treading in some pretty sensitive waters. Poor girl.

Wonder how long it’s going to be ’til we hear about an engagement ring.
