Ryan Reynolds filed for divorce from Scarlett Johansson on Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, with the actress filing her response to his petition immediately.

The couple’s breakup went public Dec. 14, the day they issued a statement that they’d decided to end the marriage. ‘It’s with love and kindness we leave’ the relationship, they said, adding that while privacy ‘isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.’


Both parties agree on their date of separation and neither is seeking spousal support, both of which are signs of a cooperative split according to TMZ, which has the court documents.

And what about the notion that Sandra Bullock played a role in the breakup?

So, the Ministry of Gossip was joking ... the other Bullock-related story was a ... well, you decide.
