Why is Scarlett Johansson Bitter Over Blake Lively?

In the timeline of Hollywood marriages, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds exchanged vows in 2008, yet their marriage came to an end with a divorce filing in 2011, initiated a year earlier in 2010. Almost immediately after the divorce proceedings commenced, Reynolds was spotted in the company of Blake Lively, sparking a whirlwind of rumors and whispers hinting at infidelity.

For years, media headlines painted a narrative of lingering resentment from Johansson towards the newfound pair. A National Enquirer(via Daily Mail) report claimed,

“Even though there is no evidence behind it, Scarlett has convinced herself that Ryan cheated on her with Blake. She’s incredibly bitter about it. In a way, Scarlett feels like Blake actually stole Ryan from her, because it was when he started shooting ‘Green Lantern’ with Blake in 2010 that everything fell apart.”

Some reports even dared to suggest that Johansson harbored a belief that Lively, with calculated intent, had strategically “seduced” and “stole” Reynolds from her grasp, but these were mere speculations without any concrete evidence of animosity between them. Both have since moved forward in their lives, leaving any alleged friction behind.
