The announcement that Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were splitting came as quite a surprise to the general public, and it was apparently something of a surprise to Reynolds, who hadn't given up yet on the marriage. Describing him as "beyond sad and depressed," a source tells Us Weekly that he "thought they could work it out, but Scarlett made it clear it was done. She was disconnected and unaffected. It was harsh."
The primary problem in the marriage was the couple's distance; the two were almost constantly working on separate projects. "They went from speaking once every two days to once every two weeks," said the source.
A source that was on the set of Reynolds' film "Green Lantern" said that Reynolds was open about the problems. "He would say she treated him badly. She was very focused on her own career, and it never seemed like she made him a priority," said that source.
That said, when the two split, they took equal responsibility, issuing a statement that said, "After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage."
