Scarlett Johansson‘s marriage to Ryan Reynolds OBVI didn’t work out, but she does have advice on how to be in a happy marriage!
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star is now happily hitched French journalist Romain Dauriac. To what does she credit their marital strength? Separate careers, kids. Separate. Friggin.’ Careers.
In the new issue of Parade, the actress alluded to the problems inherent in dating (and marrying) a fellow actor…which may give us hints at why Ryan and Scarlett ultimately didn’t work out:
“Acting is a very strange world to be co-existing in,” the Lucy star told the magazine. “It’s very volatile. There’s always going to be the more successful person. It’s related to rejection. Because actors, if they’re not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity — to the fact that nobody wants them.”
“[Marriage] takes a lot of work. It takes a man who’s not only confident in the love that you have for one another, but confident in what he has going on in his own career. He has to be in a field that’s completely different from yours,” she explained to Parade.
“My husband’s also involved in art. What’s important to him is the recognition that he gets from his job, and that has nothing to do with my job,” she added.
They do share some common interests, of course. “We like to go out and go dancing,” the blonde stunner, 30, dished. “Other times, we like to sit at home and eat Thai food and watch House Hunters International for four hours. And we’re interested in each other’s worlds.”
Wow, pretty strong endorsement for dating someone outside of your own line of work. Do you agree or disagree with ScarJo’s assessment on what makes a healthy marriage?
