Scarlett and Ryan’s Friendly Dinner Following Split

It was one of the biggest shocks of 2010 when Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds announced their plans to divorce on Friday after being married for only two years. But just a day later they were spotted getting cosy at a restaurant in New York. Hmm…

Last week Scarlett escaped to Jamaica with her girlfriends but on her return the two met up for a “friendly meal” in Manhattan, and seemed very comfortable together laughing and touching hands .

In last week’s announcement, the couple said they wanted to continue to show love and kindness toward each other. What better way than a friendly meal?

“They were smiling and laughing the whole time,” People magazine says.

“They just wanted to connect and have a friendly chat. They just wanted to sit down together. The tone was light and fun despite the untruths that the media is working up. ?They aren’t reconciling. This was just two people who were married being civil and friendly.”

34 year-old Ryan recently commented on his favourite thing about marriage: “You get to hang out with your best buddy every day.” While the pair have not given any indication of the reason for their split, it’s long been rumoured they had barely spent any time together over the last few years due to their demanding work schedules. Ironically they’re now working together on a whale documentary called The Orca.

Last month Ryan was named the World’s Sexiest Man by People magazine and joked that Scarlett was sure to tease him about it. “Now it’s going to be, ‘Sexiest man, take out the garbage,'” he laughed.

What do you think? Are Hollywood marriages doomed to failure?
