Many of Ryan Reynolds’s fans were shocked when he revealed in 2011 that he had struggled to find footing after his split from Scarlett Johansson. The actor said he was still in agony but could feel hope rising as he worked through it. Many speculated in the remarks that Reynolds would never find true love or marry again.
Fortunately, he met the beautiful and talented actor Blake Lively a few months later, and they soon fell in love. The couple rose to fame fast and became one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, which they have maintained.
How Ryan Reynolds Healed His Broken Heart
Before getting into Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s love story, let’s walk down the Reynolds-Johansson marriage memory lane. The pair tied the knot in 2008, but by December 2010, they had declared their split, and by July 2011, they had officially divorced.
The couple’s breakup shocked fans because they had seen them together as a joyful unit. It turned out, however, that the couple had been having problems for a while and had merely grown apart.

While discussing his split from Johansson with Details magazine in 2011, the Deadpool 3 actor was candid about his feelings, saying that anyone going through a divorce experiences great suffering. Although he still felt some discomfort, he began feeling hopeful as he worked through it. He added that he was unsure about getting married again but was open to reconsidering.
“Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain, but you come out of it. I’m not out of it yet. At all. But I sense that there’s optimism as I come through it. How can there not be? I don’t want to get married again, but you always re-evaluate these things.”
Reynolds and Lively met on the set of the superhero film Green Lantern, where they played each other’s love interest. Reynolds was still hurting from his split from Johansson and wasn’t in the market for a long-term relationship. However, the then-on-screen couple clicked immediately and started dating.
