Splitting spouses Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson won't be spending the holidays with one another -- but that doesn't mean they'll be alone.

The new Us Weekly, out today, reports how Reynolds, 34, and Johansson, 26, are dealing with the "civil" end of their two-year marriage (UsMagazine.com broke the news on Tuesday).

"Ryan has been reaching out to an ex the past few months," a Reynolds pal tells Us.

Yet it's purely platonic, the insider insists: "He is seeking comfort, but not in a romantic or sexual way."

Suddenly single Johansson, meanwhile, has "confided in friends."

As reported on Tuesday, it was the sexy Iron Man 2 actress who initiated the split. "She's been unhappy for a while," the source says, noting that the busy actors were force to spend too much time apart.

In a joint statement released Tuesday, the duo confirmed their plans to divorce, and said, "We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it."
