A mole dishes to Us Weekly that newly single Green Lantern actor Reynolds, who was recently voted the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, has been receiving solace from a former flame. Says the source, identified as a "pal" of Reynolds,
"Ryan has been reaching out to an ex the past few months."
But lest anyone get the wrong idea, the source assures that they only body part that Reynolds is interested in is a shoulder to rest his weeping head on:
"He is seeking comfort, but not in a romantic or sexual way."
As for the reason for the split, the source adds that Johansson, who reportedly initiated the split, has "been unhappy for a while," particularly with the amount of time the couple had been spending apart.
While the source declined to identify Reynolds' secret comforter, the actor, 34, was famously engaged to "Jagged Little Pill" singer Alanis Morissette, from 2004 to 2007. Maybe Morissette, who's currently expecting her first child, is practicing her nurturing skills by comforting her heartbroken former flame?
