Ryan Reynolds is reportedly seeking comfort from his former girlfriend Alanis Morissette after his split from actress Scarlett Johansson.
Actor Ryan Reynolds is leaning on his ex-girlfriend, singer Alanis Morissette, while dealing with his impending divorce from Scarlett Johansson.
Reynolds, 34, announced his split yesterday from Scarlett, after two years of marriage.
A source said, “Ryan has been reaching out to an ex the past few months. He is seeking comfort, but not in a romantic or sexual way.”
Scarlett, 26, is said to have “confided in friends” over the breakdown of her marriage, which is said to be caused by them spending so much time apart.
The insider said: “They spent a lot of time apart when they are working. She’s been unhappy for a while.”
Reynolds and Johansson, who wed four months after becoming engaged in September 2008, released a joint statement yesterday confirming their divorce.
The statement read: “After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage.
“We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it.”
Sources say the couple actually split about six months ago but that Ryan and Scarlett were on good terms.
