Ryan Reynolds “Seeking Comfort” With Ex After Scarlett Split


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."

For much more on the split — including Johansson's screaming match on the phone days before the announcement, their personality clashes and their last-ditch effort to stay together — pick up the new Us Weekly, on stands today.
