2010 delivered some rough love for both Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock. In December, Ryan, 34-years-old, separated from his wife Scarlett Johansson after just two years of marriage. And Sandra, 46-years-old, was the thrown into the limelight earlier this year when she discovered her husband of nearly five years had been having extramarital affairs throughout their marriage, news which resulted in a speedy divorce orchestrated by Sandra. (And we later learned that Jesse James had set the bar pretty low when it came to choosing his mistresses.) Jesse James Cheated On Sandra Bullock With This
Sandra and Ryan have been friends for a few years, since meeting on the set of The Proposal, where they starred opposite each other. Back then, though, they were both (seemingly) happily married to other people, and the two couples would double date together--cook dinner for one another, go out together. They were all buddies.
But when everyone split up, Ryan and Sandra's friendship remained intact, and they seem to still very much enjoy each other's company. And who knows, perhaps this platonic respite will enventually wane into full-blown romance. A friend of Ryan's told Popeater that: "Sandra loves Ryan...they are not a couple, at least not yet. They love spending quality time together."
And quality time together was indeed spent. Ryan and Sandra were spotted celebrating New Year's Eve together by dancing the night away at Bess Bistro, Sandra's restaurant in Texas. Photographs from that night show the two sitting next to each other.
"They are both newly single and leaning on each other for support," Popeater's insider revealed. "Who knows what will happen in the future, but any rumors of them being together and splitting up Ryan's marriage to Scarlett are false. Sandra would never get involved with a married man after what her ex did to her. She has way too much respect for Scarlett, Ryan, the institution of marriage and herself to do that."Will Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds Divorce?
Sandra's rep denied the romance sepculations, telling People, "A group of old friends that included Ryan and Sandra spent New Year's together. They all had a great time ringing in the New Year as they have in the past ... as nothing more than friends."
Looks like we'll have to wait until ScarJo and Ryan's divorce is final before we see any real action between these two.
