Ryan Reynolds reportedly tried to keep marriage together

Ryan Reynolds Ryan Reynolds initially tried to repair his relationship with Scarlett Johansson, a source close to "The Proposal" actor told People -- and even though they're splitting, there's no drama driving it.

Forget whispers of third-party involvement: The couple reportedly grew apart dealing with the reality of working steadily -- and not in the same location. Still, the source said, Reynolds was up to fix things.

"And then it got to the point where it was just, if it's not working, it's not working," the source said. "He's an adult, and he finally just said they should stop."

The decision to divorce was made recently, the source said, and he is expected to let her file. Reynolds, 34, and Johansson, 26, married quietly in September 2008.

She was last seen in "Iron Man 2"; in recent months he's been doing early rounds in advance of the summer 2011 release of "Green Lantern." The two are working together on a documentary, "The Whale," aiming to get distribution with a 2011 release date.

Right now, however, Johansson is in Jamaica with girlfriends.
