Scarlett Johansson wants Ryan Reynolds back, she’s promising him gerbil babies


Bradley Cooper gets a lot of crap for looking like an emu, but why is that very few people ever say, “Jesus, enough with the Gerbil-face, you beady-eyed freak” to Ryan Reynolds? I get that Ryan is loved by many of you, and obviously, we have different tastes in men. But how can you look at him without feeling the urge to put him in a cage with a little stationary wheel? He would look at home there. Think about it.

Anyway, as we’ve talked about before, Scarlett Johansson has been flailing ever since Sean Penn unceremoniously dumped her a few months ago. She’s tried to rebound and she’s tried to go back to her old man-eating ways, but something just feels “off”. So ScarJo has decided that what she really needs is a Mulligan.

Ryan Reynolds‘ flirty behavior with Sandra Bullock at the premiere of The Change-Up must have caught the attention of ex-wife Scarlett Johansson, because Us Weekly is reporting that she’s determined to win him back!

“She has been calling him incessantly trying to see him, trying to meet up with him or see how he is,” a source tells the mag.

The once-hot couple has been spotted having dinner together several times, most recently at Little Dom’s in Los Angeles on July 8, but don’t expect them to officially get back together anytime soon.

Even though a friend close to Ryan and Scarlett says that “he still loves her,” he’s keeping her at arm’s length because “he does not want to get played again. … He feels she just quit on him.”

Once of the biggest strains on their relationship was that Scarlett didn’t want to have a baby, but now she’s suddenly changing her tune.

“She’s doing everything possible to get him to take her back,” another source tells Star magazine. “Even saying she’s ready to have a baby.”

[From Hollywood Life]

Some will yell that HE could do much better, and there will be a handful who quietly think “SHE is the one who could do better.” Let’s face it, though: they BOTH could do better. I never bought the image ScarJo tried to sell when she was with Ryan, like she was suddenly this wholesome, career-oriented wife who didn’t care about glamour and only cared about things that were “real” like “art” and “not wearing makeup.” She’s not that girl. She’s a city girl who likes to get drunk and likes to have a good time. Meanwhile, Ryan needs to be with somebody more down-to-earth, who enjoys downtime activities like hiking and being in the country. I could honestly see him with Jessica Biel. And I could see ScarJo with an assortment of randoms – she just needs to get her game back.

    You had your chance SCARHO now eat your heart out!

  2. kieslwoski says:

    I am sorry but I totally do not get Ryan Reynolds, no talent, no screen presence, no charisma whatsoever. And he is so not handsome or attractive. I JUST DON’T GET IT!

  3. brin says:

    What does Charlize think about this…lol.

  4. Rita says:

    “So ScarJo has decided that what she really needs is a Mulligan.”

    Oh, I do love how these blind items get started. Let’s see, there’s Carey Mulligan for the lezzie city girl thing, there’s Richard Mulligan for the old dead crusty thing, and there’s Thom Mulligan for the “I need to sleep with a director to advance my career thing.”

    Who will it be? Unless of course that is a golf term then,….never mind (if it’s the golf thing, should it be capitalized?)

  5. Pyewacket says:

    If both Reynolds and Cooper’s eyes were any closer, they would both be cyclopes’.

  6. Lisa says:

    I like RR. I hope he doesn’t go back to ScarJo

  7. Gwen says:

    I don’t particularly like him or find him hot but I want him to be with Charlize. They would be a lot more hot than him and Scarlet.

  8. penguin says:

    She needs to go back to blonde that hair colour looks terrible on her.

  9. the original bellaluna says:

    Meh. It’s one thing to want somebody back and make promises (ready to have a child) and quite another to keep those promises if you manage to get back together.

    @ Rita – I think it’s the golf-term option, but your posits are quite entertaining. I’m voting for option 3, “need to sleep with a director to advance my career” thing.

  10. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Good God Jessica Biel…absolutely not. Ryan can do better than that. If Ryan were younger like my other Ryan crush I would say he should single for longer but I hope he finds someone if that whats he wants. I was kinda hoping Ryan and Sandra would hook up. They would make the perfect couple.

  11. Devon says:

    I love how they are continuing with the story that they had dinner together in early July when in fact he was seen all around Vancouver on July 8th and 9th.

    I don’t think it’s true. I think Ryan is done with her and she with him. He’s suppose to be dating Charlize Theron now.

  12. Becca says:

    you can have ALLLL of the pasty ginger men in Hollywood, and I will gladly take Ryan Renolds…gerbil eyes (?????) and all. 🙂

  13. Denver Danni says:

    Has she not been out for a while? I keep seeing this photo of her and it’s super unflattering. Ay, Kool-Aid hair.

  14. curleque says:

    I second that motion, Becca!

  15. Denise says:

    Here’s a radical thought; how about him dating someone who is NOT an actress?

  16. Goofpuff says:

    Don’t hate me for this but I would like to see Ryan and Sandra together. I think Sandra needs to have some fun after Jessie and Ryan seems like a really fun ride!

  17. Findley says:

    The deal breaker with RR is that hairline–ew.

  18. Firecracker says:

    I love that dress!

  19. the other mel says:

    Maybe she’d stand a chance of winning him back if she ditched that hideous red roadkill that sitting on top of her head.

  20. Turtle Dove says:

    There’s all kinds of NO in this post.

    No Ryan will not take her back.
    No. Scarlett can’t do better than Ryan.
    No, they weren’t together (if it’s the last supposed sighting)
    NO, Ryan will not date Biel. (Seriously, Kaiser, why would you ever suggest this??)

    I do think that Ryan needs a city/country gal like you said. Someone who looks good on the red carpet and likes camping, etc.

  21. Elizabeth says:

    @ Rita

    I never thought of it that way! Clearly I am not reading this article closely enough!

  22. Quest says:

    @Becca: I’m seeing the line forming hun, RR aint that bad on the eyes and SCARJ had her chance. If he is dating Charlize then good for him, if not then he seem to make Sandra really happy.

  23. madpoe says:

    Yeah boo-hoo you Scarjo!
    You would’ve had to pry Ryan outta my cold dead hands for me to set him free!

  24. mzjask says:

    HA, eat your heart out Scarlet!!
    i would Love to see him ending up with Sandy!!! a Big F-U to Both their exes!!! 🙂

  25. Melinda says:

    I don’t believe this. I also don’t get the appeal of RR. To me he has a harsh case of douche face. Blech.

  26. anneesezz says:

    The way she’s been looking lately I’d probably pass on getting back together with her. Plus, it’s probably b.s. anyway. She looks old for her age.

  27. Kaboom says:

    Once you’ve been with Sean Penn, you realize how much better of you were before.

  28. says:

    Half of Ryan’s face is forehead, and since rodents and gerbils have no forehead, he cannot be a gerbil. Her. on the other hand, with those beady eyes and hamster teeth…

  29. Susan O. says:

    Don’t do it Ryan! Something about her face is so repulsive

  30. nellie says:

    Ryan is not cute at all. I’ll give it up to him he has a nice body but face wise, big forehead, small eyes. I don’t get his appeal. His acting is okay. He seems to play it the same way in every role.

  31. Maritza says:

    I’d love to see Ryan and Sandra together but she is too old for him, at least to have babies which is what he probably wants. Jessica Biel would be a good choice as well as Charlize although Charlize said she doesn’t believe in marriage.

  32. Nessa says:

    I love Ryan. He does make some… weird faces… but he’s still adorable. I just hope he doesn’t go back to SJ. She needs to learn how to treat men!

  33. carrie says:

    Ryan Reynolds with JLo!!!!! LOL

  34. Skinnybetch says:

    Like, OMG! I hope they like get back together. They are like totes adorbs.

  35. Jeez says:

    @Rita, a Mulligan is a golf term for a do-over.

  36. Mia says:

    I doubt this is true. For one, the dinner didn’t take place. He was in Vancouver. If he’s dating Charlize, good for him, but something tells me that won’t last. Charlize doesn’t want to get married nor is she interested in having kids.

    Scarlett probably isn’t dating anyone at the moment. She may be having sex with someone or a lot of someones, but who cares. She’s single. She can do these things. And the red hair once again is for the Avengers, which is still filming.

  37. werty says:

    Ok as a non American, what a hell is a gerbil? you keep using it and i never get what it is/means.

    As for RR… meh doesnt do anything for me but hes ok, actually better than some guys in HW that seems to think they are the center of the universe.
    And no ScarJ and RR should not get back together, they just dont match.
    Then again its prob just a rumour.

  38. Firecracker says:

    a gerbil is a very small rodent that looks sort of like a rat, with small beady eyes.

  39. werty says:

    Firecracker: Ah ok.. And yeah i can see a little bit of *rat eye*.
    Thanks Firecracker(=

  40. Jen34 says:

    I’ve never found RR (or that other Ryan) attractive. However, he does seem like a nice enough guy. Actually, in the looks department, he and ScarJo are pretty well matched, but I’m not buying this story.

  41. WOM says:

    I ditto what Goofpuff (#16) wrote: I want Ryan to get together w/ Sandra Bullock.

    I think now that ScarJo’s single, she realizes she’s more famous for her personal life, and her professional life is pretty crappy. She never lived up to the buzz generated by Lost In Translation, and garners more headlines for her love life (ie Ryan Reynolds, Sean Penn, Josh Hartnett) than acting (ie The Island, Girl With The Pearl Earring, The Black Dahlia). And God help her if she thinks she can fall back on her singing career. That doesn’t mean I think she should get back together w/ Reynolds. Rather, I think getting back together is her fantasy, not his.

  42. Camille says:

    Oh hell to the no to Biel anywhere near RR! Emu face Cooper can have Biel 😆 .

    But otherwise I agree with you @Kaiser about the types that ScarHo and RR should be with.
    These 2 were not a good match the first time around, a 2nd time would be a disaster.

    And yeah RR’s face might not be the prettiest in HW 😆 , however his body, talent and personality make up for it. He is adorable.

  43. Joe's Mom says:

    I think people don’t say, “Jesus, enough with the Gerbil face, you beady-eyed freak” to Ryan Reynolds because he’s got kind of a nice personality which cancels out the Gerbil face. I think he seems surprisingly nicer than what I expected. Unlike Bradley Cooper, who, nice or not in real-life, I will never be able to disassociate from his personality in “The Wedding Crashers”. Finally, how Ryan Reynolds and ScarJo got to be a married couple, I’ll never understand.

  44. Turtle Dove says:

    Carrie – Ahhhh…… did you just Jenny from the Block “ass”ociate? That just ain’t right.

  45. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Although I don’t agree with everything you said, I totally feel the same way in that I never believed these two to ever be a couple, more like pals who have sex from time to time. I think Ryan is an okay looking guy but that has nothing to do with relationships, it’s chemistry that holds relationships together not looks. These two just never had any chemistry to me.

  46. Meadowlark says:

    I also don’t get the Ryan Reynolds thing. Kind of a butterface to me on the shallow end of things; on the personality end, I don’t think he pulls off the “witty hunk” thing he tries really hard at.

    So, I actually see him with a bimbo-y girl who will laugh at his jokes. ScarJo almost seems too cerebral, believe it or not. I mean, she does Woody Allen movies. *shrug*

  47. anonymous says:

    Bradley Cooper gets a lot of crap for looking like an emu, but why is that very few people ever say, “Jesus, enough with the Gerbil-face, you beady-eyed freak” to Ryan Reynolds? Because you do not like the way he or Bradley Cooper look is no reason to attack the faces God gave them. If he had plastic surgery you would still be insulting him. What do you look like? This guy is attractive with a young healthy look that will service him longer than the guys you may think are gorgeous. I pray he finds the woman who will make him happy whoever she is.

  48. FingerBinger says:

    Who in their right mind would believe this story? This sounds made up to me.

  49. Dirty Martini says:

    Love me some RR. Used to love me some SJ, til she 1)dumped my sweetie RR and
    2) took up with that walking-STD-manwhore otherwise known as Sean Penn.

    Then she 3) borrowed Twinky the Clown’s wig and became a real laughingstock.

    Three strikes and you are outta here~!

  50. Melancholy says:

    I thought she was already up the duff.

  51. Alix says:

    He’s okay, I guess. He seems ever-so-slightly cross-eyed — am I the only one who notices this?

  52. Melancholy says:

    “you can have ALLLL of the pasty ginger men in Hollywood, and I will gladly take Ryan Renolds…gerbil eyes (?????) and all. :)”

    He is ginger. Of skin. 🙂

  53. Emily says:

    I don’t get a gerbil vibe from RR. Not like Cooper’s emu-ness. I’d also like Ryan and Sandra to get together, they seem to really click together.

  54. soapyme says:

    I don’t understand how he was named Sexiest Man Alive. If he must be a Ryan, then let it be Gosling!

  55. I am Legend says:

    Just another B.S. story about a celebrity breakup where the woman is supposedly alone and miserable while the man supposedly moves onward and upward.

    Ryan’s hot though. Honestly people – well built, handsome face, great hair – what’s not to like?

  56. Kosmos says:

    I’m not sure I really buy into this story…but if it were true, I would say Ryan….Do Not Go Back To Her!! they may still have feelings for one another, but it didn’t work once and it won’t work the second time. I don’t care for Scarlett period.

  57. Cpm says:

    Sorry Scarjo, but there’s no going back after your hooha has been tainted by Sean Penn. No guy’s gonna hit that, particularly your Ex. Only one question left, “do you like anal?”

  58. Paige says:

    geez you are mean! he doesn’t have crazy died hair or anything gross going on so give him a break!

  59. Venefica Delirium says:

    I’m going to take advantage of this article this boring celebrity couple to say that:

    1. Holy shit is Ryan Reynolds orange and generic looking!
    2. Everyone I’ve met with his haircut has turned out to be a major tool.
    3. Scarlett Johannsen looks like sun dried ass.

    I usually think Scarlett Johannsen is pretty good looking in all fairness, but she looks like she’s got something done. I like the haircolor a lot. It’s the hairstyle that’s nasty. Her head looks enormous and her eyes look either too small for her face or pulled realllly tight. Not a good look.

  60. telesma says:

    Fixing that hot red mess on her head would probably go a long way to getting her “game” back. That is really not a great look for her.

  61. gobo says:

    I doubt this is true. I don’t get the Ryan Reynolds as a heart throb pitch. His beady-eyed, triangle-face wierds me out.

  62. Carolyn says:

    Oh Kaiser I like the idea of Ryan & Biel together too. Charlize could have the pick of anyone….she’s classy, talented and smart.

  63. Bre says:

    Ryan needs to have some babies w/ charlize! But doubt it will last. Charlize is very “special” 🙂

  64. Emma says:

    That dress is too small on Sacrjo, fits her torso, not her hips/bootie. Sorry hunnie, go up a size.

  65. VeneficA Delirium says:

    @Emma: But…but…if it fits, then who will notice her?!

  66. Cat says:

    I used to be enamored by him, until Fassy came into my life and now I’m just like, meh.

    But I agree (minus the Jessica Biel bit), both need to stay away from each other.

  67. Ro says:

    Ryan Reynolds, despite all the beefcakey-ness, seems like he would be a good guy. This helps maintain his hotness. The only real contention I have right now is the orange.

    I definitely have to disagree about ScarJo seeming like a “city girl.” When you look at pictures of her before she had the glam makeover, she just looks like a normal person. I think she’s just your regular boho, slightly-alternative kind of girl who’s probably kind of boring and imagines she’s smarter than she really is. But man, she looks like crap these days. Maybe everything will be right when she can go back to blonde.

  68. laura says:

    He is totally a gerbil. I honestly do not get what women see in him.

    Kaiser, you make me laugh so much.

  69. Jinko says:

    Totally a gerbil!
