Once upon a time, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were one of Hollywood's "It' couples. The pair began dating in 2007 and quietly tied the knot a year later. In 2011, they divorced. The actress has since gone on to marry French art dealer Romain Dauriac (they welcomed their first child in September 2014), while Ryan Reynolds is now married to Blake Lively. 

In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, the actress opened up about her personal life, shared stories about her past relationships (Jared Leto, Sean Penn, Justin Timberlake), and revealed the difficulties of being married to an up-and-coming star like Reynolds. As Johansson implies, career goals and Hollywood competition between the two may have caused their downfall:    

“The logistics of being with another actor are challenging... There has to be a real understanding of how you share your time, especially when two people’s careers are going at the same rate. Or even if one person is more successful than the other, that also proves challenging. There may be a competitive thing.”

Clearly, their love was never meant to be. And, note to self: avoid marrying or dating someone from Hollywood.
