Scarlett Johansson may have moved on with a new beau, ad man Nate Naylor, but that doesn't mean ex-husband Ryan Reynolds is just somebody that she used to know.
"I don't feel on the other side of it completely, but it gets better," she told Vogue regarding her divorce, which the couple announced in December 2010 and finalized the following July, leaving the world tragically deprived of what might have been genetically perfect offspring.
"It's still there. More than anything, it's just that not having your buddy around all the time is weird."
Aww. OK, that almost, almost makes up for the dating-Sean-Penn thing, which started after the marriage was declared done but ended before her divorce was final ("I never put a title on it, really, but we were seeing each other," she told the mag).
"This was something I never thought I would be doing," she said of the split. "And there's no way to navigate it. ... It's a very lonely thing. It's like the loneliest thing you’ll ever do, in some way."
Not to worry: Johansson has plenty of company coming up on the big screen, where she'll star with Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Gwyneth Paltrow in "The Avengers," opening May 4.
