Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are heading for splitsville, it has been claimed. Rumor has it that the couple are going through a "rough patch" as the 24-year-old actress won't rush down the aisle anytime soon and instead prefers to focus on her acting career.
"Scarlett and Ryan have hit a rough patch after he dared to broach the subject of marriage and kids," the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying. "Scarlett is younger and has no desire for a husband or family just yet. She is very much focused on her career and is filming three movies back-to-back this year."
Scarlett and Ryan's alleged romance first made its way to public early April last year when they were spotted together all over Manhattan. They reportedly were spotted holding hands and kissing while out for dinner and clubbing in New York on three consecutive evenings.
Nevertheless, it was not until the following month that they went public with their romance when they were seen catching The Damnwells' show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. The couple sparked engagement rumors last summer, when they flew to Canada to meet Ryan's parents.
Early last month, it was reported that Scarlett has moved in with Ryan. She's said to have transferred her belongings to the actor's Los Angeles home, despite her mother's disapproval. "Scarlett feels she is ready to move in with Ryan and thinks he is the perfect man for her," a source said at that time.
Prior to their romance, both Scarlett and Ryan dated notable names in the entertainment industry. She dated actor Josh Hartnett and he dated, and even engaged to, singer Alanis Morissette.
Professionally, Scarlett is bound to finish filming such flicks, as "Vicky Cristina Barcelona", "He's Just Not That Into You", and "Mary Queen of Scots".
