There’s so much I don’t get about Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson’s marriage. For one, how did they manage to keep it together for a year? Oh, this is their one-year wedding anniversary, by the way. Congratulations, ScarJo and Ryan! One year ago, Ryan and Scarlett exchanged vows at a Canadian eco-resort, and then Ryan went fishing on their honeymoon. While Scarlett did her nails or whatever. Nice honeymoon, eh?
Neither of them talks much about their marriage, with Ryan usually taking pains to talk about how he won’t talk about their marriage. On the rare occasions Scar says something about their union, it’s usually totally bland, like her interview in Glamour where she said, “I never really thought about getting married — it just kind of happened. You hope that a relationship makes you better, that you learn things about yourself.…I feel more confident to explore things within myself that I hadn’t thought about in the past.” The past few months, there has been some speculation here and there that they’re having some big problems - some say Ryan is very jealous of the attention Scar gets from fanboys. Other sources claim that Ryan is ready to start a family while Scar just wants to focus on her career.
Ryan and Scar are so paranoid about keeping their marriage “private” that they refuse to walk the red carpet for each other’s events. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have the same kind of deal, and I tend to think Scar and Ryan are copying. We seriously have never seen Scar and Ryan both decked out in their finest on a red carpet together, we’ve only gotten the occasional paparazzi shot of the two of them. Yesterday was one of those rare occasions. They were photographed at one point holding hands as they left a New York gym, but in the rest of the pictures they look like two strangers barely acknowledging each other. You also have to squint pretty hard to figure out that it’s Scarlett, because I mistook them both for the Unabomber. I know, I know. They probably weren’t happy to be pap’d, and that’s why they both look grumpy. But doesn’t it seem like neither of them wants to be with the other?
