Running into an ex is always awkward. It's even worse if your old flame is with his new girlfriend when you bump into each other.
This is exactly the uncomfortable situation Scarlett Johansson is hoping to avoid with her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, who's been spending the last few months snuggled up with Blake Lively.

According to the DailyMail, ScarJo hopped the pond to London last week to meet with a realtor about finding a new home in England.
"Scarlett doesn't want any awkward run-ins with Ryan and Blake in New York," says a friend. "She was always a little uncomfortable about the fact that Ryan and Blake worked together while she was still married to him."

"When Scarlett is in New York she keeps a low profile. She wants to give the whole party scene a miss. She's filming a movie called Under The Skin in Scotland at the moment, but she is hoping to meet someone new. She adores British men and would love a place and a man in London," explains the friend.
Can't blame her for that! Even though her spokesman said she isn't going to make London her home base, maybe spending some time in that city will help her move on from her divorce and find that charming British man she's been dreaming of! $41K: What It Costs To Go On A Date With Scarlett Johansson
