The Black Widow actress complimented the Deadpool star, whom she was married to from 2008 to 2011, during the interview. Here is a breakdown of the conversation:
Praising Ryan Reynolds
During the Goop podcast, Scarlett Johansson praised her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, calling him “a good guy.”
She and Reynolds tied the knot in 2008 and divorced in 2011, after which Reynolds went on to marry Blake Lively, and Johansson married French journalist Romain Dauriac.
Johansson is currently married to Saturday Night Live writer and star Colin Jost.
Discussing Her Previous Marriages
While on the podcast, Johansson spoke about her previous relationships and marriages.
When asked by Paltrow about what she’s learned from her previous relationships, Johansson responded by saying that she has learned to identify the fundamental characteristics that she needs in a partner.
She went on to explain that she wasn’t always comfortable with setting boundaries and didn’t always know what she wanted or needed from a partner.
However, she has since learned that it is important to know what you need in a partner and to share certain fundamental characteristics with them.
Learning from Past Relationships
Johansson’s marriage to Jost has taught her many valuable lessons.
She credits her successful marriage to her newfound ability to identify what she needs in a partner and to be okay with it.
Understanding what you need in a partner is essential for longevity in a relationship, and identifying those things can be a game-changer.
